League Secretary, Graham Heath provides the following rep
On Sunday 1st March Thomas (Tom) Carroll of Hoylake Chess Club played 23 juniors (which included several of the Wirral Junior Squad). A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon resulted in Tom, the England Junior International grade 210, winning every game ! Ashvin Kumar was the last player to hold out and won a prize for his efforts.
Tom is planning on studying Medicine at University and we wish every success in his career. Special thanks go to John Smallthwaite, the Wirral League Junior Organiser for his conscientious planning. Thanks also to Trevor Amos, Matt Battersby, Dave Williams and Leon Wolszczak for their assistance and support. And not least to all of those juniors who met the challenge with great enthusiasm.
