Junior Chess Team are Eighth in the Country
Tuesday, 21 September 2010
The Bolton School Junior Boys' U11 A Chess team has been named eighth overall in the country, after competing in the EPSCA (English Primary Schools Chess Association) National Primary Schools Chess Team Championship 2010.
The boys made it through to the final of the competition following success in their semi final at Prestatyn and travelled down to Bream Sands in Somerset in July to face the best in the country in the national final. The boys played exceptionally well through several gruelling rounds of chess to walk away in eighth place. This is a fantastic achievement for the team - made up of Luke Cavanaugh, Henry Webb, Tom Paterson and Ryan Thakrar who are current Year 6 boys and Rohit Bagewadi and Henry Taylor who have now moved up to Year 7.
