Two Dorset Juniors represent South West England with great performances

Congratulations to the two Dorset Juniors, Zander Booth and Michal Orszulak, who were chosen, from a large number of nominated junior chess players across the south-west of England, to join the South-West England U14 team to play against Wales on Sunday 26th May at Bristol.

All ten U14 players played two matches, one as white and the other as black against different opponents. The time control was 60 minutes + 10 seconds.

Both Zander and Michal scored a fantastic 1.5 points out of 2. Both drew their first round match, Zander as black and Michal as white, and then when on to win their second round match playing the opposite colours.

Overall, the U14 scores went in England’s favour with South-West England winning by a comfortable margin.

The team manager reported ‘We had a fabulous day yesterday at Redland Green School. Many thanks to Igor and Peter Purland for organising and all the parents and players. Our teams played excellently all day and were just brilliant all round. I think the team spirit was excellent throughout the day.

Well done, we are proud of you!
