EPSCA: Cheshire & North Wales qualify for the U11 Finals

Despite a weakened team due to the clash with the Welsh Under 11 Championships this weekend,

Cheshire & North Wales managed a creditable 4th place in the EPSCA U11 Zonals. Just over a third

of the 20-board team were North Wales players, many of whom were playing for the "county" for the first time.

A special mention for Robert Goodwin, who scored 3/3 on board three - an excellent result!

The team will play in the finals on May 7th.
