We were very fortunate to be able to enter two under-13 teams, one in the Open and one in the Minor, as our newly appointed Team Manager, Mrs Chopra, had only a few weeks notice to prepare for the event.
Our two teams were drawn from the under-11 squad which meant that they were up to two years younger than their opponents, but it did give them valuable experience which will benefit their development. We finished 8th in both the under-13 Open and under-13 Minor competition.
There were, nevertheless, some outstanding individual performances from three players:
- Param Vyas 3.5 (Board 6, U13 Open)
- Harshil Mehta 3.5 (Board 1, U13 Minor)
- Karan Chopra 2.5 (Board 4, U13 Minor)
Overall, the event proved very enjoyable and offered a real challenege to our enthusiastic players.
A summary of results is available on the ECF website.
