Commanding Performance in U10s Welsh Junior Championships

This year’s Welsh Junior Championships were held on 8th and 9th March at St John’s College.

Akshara N won the under 10s major championship, followed by fellow St John’s pupil, Rishi P in joint 2nd!  Akshara fought amazingly, with immense determination over the chessboard, gaining 5/6 points over a gruelling two day tournament! Rishi P followed closely and accumulated a very respectable 4/6 points – well done to both Rishi and Akshara.

Other St John’s pupils competed in sections well above their age category, and gained good experience playing older and more accomplished junior chess players. Some very good performances were observed from Aron C, Ethan C, Hiya R, Daniel J, and Anish C.
