Once again the Junior Boys' chess teams have made it through to
the Semi Finals of the EPSCA (English Primary Schools Chess
Association) National Primary Schools Chess Team Championship.
The competition is for pupils aged 5 - 11 years and is split
into two age groups - U9 and U11. Two teams of six boys from Bolton
School were entered into the qualifier, which was held at
Bridgewater School on Saturday 5 February. The U9 team (Henry
Doyle, Alfie Inkster, Krishnan Ajit, Flynn Saturley, Johnny Shine
and Ben Turner) came in second place, while the U11 team (Luke
Cavanaugh, Henry Webb, Tom Paterson, Ryan Thakrar, Sam Brennan and
Akshay Pal) came third in their section. There were some excellent
individual performances with Luke Cavanaugh and Johnny Shine
gaining 4.5 out of 5 and Flynn Saturley, Ben Turner, Henry Doyle
and Sam Brennan gaining 4 out of 5.
The Semi Finals consist of 6 rounds over 2 days at three
different Pontins venues. Bolton School Junior Boys will be
competing at Pontins in Prestatyn in May.
