12-year old Jaden Jermy lives in Thetford but plays his chess in Suffolk (Bury Knights and Bury St Edmunds). On Saturday he travelled to Norwich to take part in the Norfolk Junior Championships, which are open only to children living in, born in, or attending school in Norfolk.
Jaden scored 5½/6 in the Under 14 section, and is now the Norfolk Under 12 and Under 14 Champion!
As reported here, Jaden is now a full member of the England Junior Chess Squad and expects to be selected to play for England some time this year. He is hoping to raise funds to cover his travel and coaching costs.
Any contribution by local chess players will be much appreciated!
