The first J4NCL weekend of the season
took place on 1st & 2nd October at Wokefield Park, Reading.
CSC entered 2 teams - one
team made up of children from Newham, East
London which played in Div 1 and a team made
up of children from Bristol, Manchester,
Wales and Birmingham which played in Div 2.
Both teams did extremely well on their
debut's with CSC Newham coming 8th/11 and CSC 2's coming
12th/18. All the players did themselves and their parents
proud with their play and the way they conducted themselves.
Whilst it was a team effort, Toby Kan deserves a special
mention as he scored 4½/5 over the weekend which was a
brilliant effort considering he played on Board 1 in each
As well as a hectic playing schedule the
children also took part in some coaching sessions which
myself and Jerzy Dybowski supplemented by going through the
children's games with them.
As Team Manager I would like to thank all
the children and parents for attending the weekend and I
hope to see most if not all of you again over the next J4NCL
weekends in Birmingham in January and April next year.
