Nine Suffolk Juniors attended a training day yesterday in Brentwood, organised (amongst others) by International Master Richard Pert.
The photos below show the Bury Knights’ members (Milan Biju, Rowan Kent, Adam John, Amy John, Isaac Kim and Tom Roy), as well as the Woodbridge School children Rowan Kent (again!), Marina, Georgia and Theo Pommier. Behind them in both photos is GM Matthew Sadler, England’s highest-graded player at 282, who was helping to coach the children, along with Richard’s twin brother GM Nick Pert.
This was the second ‘Train and Play’ event organised by Richard Pert and Robin Slade, Head Coach of the Chelmsford Junior Chess Club. The next one will be held on Sunday 2 April and entries can be made here.
