Alex gets his hands on the cup

Back in August last year, Alex Sheerin was a member of the six-board England team that won the John Robinson Cup, in the quadrangular Under 14 match held at the University of Stirling, against similar teams from Scotland, Ireland and Wales.

He was recently given the trophy to hold, each team member having a couple of months to share it.
