The Bury Knights Junior Chess Club will be fielding a team in the Junior 4NCL at Hinckley, on 22/23 November. This will be the first time that a junior team from Suffolk has played in this competition. The event is held over five rounds, with three games on Saturday and two on Sunday. All games are submitted for ECF grading.
The Bury squad includes regular league players Alex Sheerin, Anita Somton and Emilia Jewell, as well as up-and-coming youngsters, brothers Alan and Adam John. For each round, a team of four is required. The team manager is Boby Sebastian, father of Alan and Adam and the current Chairman of the Club.
The squad was unable to play in the first round of matches in October, but expects to be able to field a team in the third round in January.
