Hampshire Junior Chess Association has taken advantage of an excellent offer from the makers of the best digital chess timer, the DGT 2010. DGT via FIDE and then the ECF made available DGT 2010 timers at a knockdown price provided we purchased a bulk quantity. Following the successful Junior Congress in October we were able to purchase twenty DGT 2010s bringing our stock to thirty four (34).
The brand new Hampshire Under -11 team led by Andrew Kirby on board one enjoyed their first outing at Langley Grammar School on Sunday, November 4th.
We played three matches against our friends from Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire.
Many high quality games of chess were played and Hampshire ended the day congratulating Berkshire Juniors on winning this friendly event.
