We had 26 juniors today bustling with eager enthusiasm as it was T shirt day as well as some much anticipated great games of chess.

Tony gave his usual round of puzzles for the advanced group, which is always well recieved and warms up their brains for the competitive games to come later on.

Eric and Leo went through a recent game featured in The Times newspaper. Steve, Paul and Graham played through games highlighting good/bad moves played by the beginners.

We had one new beginner, Peter, who we hope to see again soon.
