Over this weekend, four Bury Knights members competed in the National Junior Squad Championships, held at Wokefield Park, near Reading.
The outstanding performance was by Adam John (ECF 116) left, who won the Under 10 section outright, scoring 4½/5. On 3/3 after Saturday’s games, he faced top seed Ezra Brass (139) in Round 4 today, and managed a draw. In the final round he beat third seed Jeff Tomy (131). Four players shared second place on 4/5. Many congratulations Adam!
Other scores were Ralph Martin 2/5 and Alan John 1½/5 in the strong Under 14 section, whilst Tom Roy scored one point in the Under 12s.
Adam John is currently #26 on the ECF grading database for Under 10s, as can be viewed here. After this performance, as well as some excellent league results, his grade should improve considerably in July.
