Rowan conquers the South of England

Following on his excellent performance in the Junior 4NCL (see earlier report here), 7-year old Rowan Kent from Woodbridge School and the Bury Knights Junior Chess Club travelled to Yateley Manor in Hampshire last Sunday to play in the Under 8 section of the South of England Championships.

He could not have played better, winning all six games.   Although Rowan was the highest-graded player in the event, he beat both the second and third seeds on his way to the title.

Rowan’s new Rapidplay grade is 97 – not bad for a seven-year old!
