Merseyside Chess Association - Junior Chess Congress

Saturday 4th February 2017.

Yet another brilliant day full of excellent chess playing by our Junior players.  Our venue was the wonderful Merchant Taylors’ Senior Girls’ School, Crosby. The school is so welcoming and provides the perfect atmosphere for the tournament.

We played 5 rounds of chess throughout the day with a chess Masterclass demonstration by our chess experts Karl Nadin and Jim Gallagher with fantastic support from one of our Junior players Bashar Rovezi.
A huge thank you to Merchant Taylors’ especially the ladies who kept us refreshed throughout the day with tea/coffee and delicious snacks.
Thank you to Mrs Barry from Merchant Taylors’ your support is very much appreciated by MCA and the Juniors and their parents.
Thank you to the adults in the room Karl, Pauline, Adam, Jim and John who helped to create an opportunity for the Juniors to shine.
