The Primary Cup

The Primary chess tournament is an Under 11 inter schools tournament. It started out with 36 teams from schools in East and West Sussex.

After the qualifying rounds early on in the year Copthorne Prep school qualified for the final which was held at London Meed School in Burgess Hill. The team in Division 2 was Amalia and Yelena Finnegan, Ben Kinnear, Ian Heywood and me, Daniel Gooda. I was very proud to be asked to be the Team Captain.

Our first round was beating Ashurst School with a massive 4 out of 4. Next was Ashdown House, if we beat them we would win Division 2 in the Primary Cup and thank goodness we did with 3 out of 4.

The team won a cup and shield to be kept and displayed at the school and all team members got a medal to keep.

Well done to all the team.
