Liverpool juniors 1st team will be crowned the Merseyside Junior Chess Division 1 league title having already earned enough points to claim the prize with one game still to go.

Liverpool who were also 2017 champions are 2 points clear of current Champions from 2018 Wirral but with a much superior board count which means Wirral cannot now catch Liverpool and they will reclaim the title once again.

Teams from Wirral, Southport, Bluecoat, Merchant Taylor Girls and Liverpool 2 all competed for this years title with many tight games and good individual performances and there are still a few games to go to see who takes 2nd place this season.

The Merseyside Division 2 Junior league title is still to be decided with Merchant Taylor Junior Boys 1st team in prime position but they can mathematically be caught by Wirral Juniors 2 who need to win their last game by at least a 4-1 margin to tie with the leaders.

Bluecoat 2 making her debut in the league this year can still claim 2nd place so it is still all to fight for.

Teams from Merchant Taylor Girls and Merchant Boys 2 have also competed this season with some good individual results.
