Leicestershire achieved a comprehensive victory against Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire in the Junior U130 12 board competition that took place in North Hykenham on Sunday 25th March. Unfortunately Yorkshire, who have won this event on 3 out of the 4 previous occasions, were unable to compete this time and so a 3 round jamboree was played instead rather than an all play all. In the 36 games played Leicestershire won 21 drew 10 and only lost 3 to score an overwhelming 28 pts ahead of Lincolnshire (11.5) and Notts (9.5). Not surprisingly there were some excellent individual scores with 3 wins out of 3 for Antoni Krupa, Jason Lv and Rory Haywood and 2 wins and a draw for Peter Mottram-Epson, Milly Kotecha, Alastair Mottram-Epson, Adam Kerbel and the Lindsay Pyun.
The full team was: Ben Raine, Sasha Kerbel, George Worrow-Goodin, Peter Mottram-Epson, Thomas Blay, Antoni Krupa, Milly Kotecha, Alastair Mottram-Epson, Rory Haywood, Jason Lv, Adam Kerbel, Lindsay Pyun
