Over the Christmas period, the London Junior Chess Championships have been in full swing. A number Bury Knights, including one with 'dual citizenship' with Woodbridge School, made their way to Harrow for this event, which is second only to the British Open in the Chess Calendar.
All Suffolk's players played well and did their county proud. The stand out performances were those by Jaden Jermy, Tom Roy, and Amy John. Jaden scored 3.5/6 to finish 12th out of 61 in his section. Amy John scored a very impressive 5.5/7 to finish 5th out of 106 entrants in her section - a very impressive performance. Tom scored 4/6 to finish 6th out of 37 in his section.
The results were as follows:
U14 Major: Jaden Jermy 3.5/6, Adam John 3/6
U14 Minor: Tom Roy 4/6
U10 Major: Rowan Kent 4/7
U10 Minor: Amy John 5.5/7
LJCC Harrow Junior U12: Tania Roy 2.5/6
