A new Chairman was elected at a Committee Meeting of the Bury Knights Junior Chess Club, held this evening. He is Boby Sebastian, father of promising juniors Alan and Adam John. Boby replaces Damian Wallace, who has been in charge for the past four years.
Several initiatives were discussed at the meeting, including a more formalised coaching structure. Local players who are prepared to come along on Friday evenings, even if only on the odd occasion, will be welcomed.
The Club’s finances are extremely healthy and it was agreed to set up a bursary fund to provide funding for members who are selected to represent their country or county.
It is hoped to arrange a match soon with the newly-formed Colchester Junior Chess Club.
