Copthorne chess players travelled this weekend to Eastbourne to compete in the 14th Eastbourne Open Junior Chess Tournament. Over 75 players from all over Sussex attended with Copthorne being represented by Freya & Amalia Finnegan, Daniel Gooda, Josh Higgs, Ben Kinnear, Peter Kinnear, Andrew Easton and Jamie Ward. All our players fought hard.
Freya got pipped (again!) on progressives to 3rd place in the Under 11 minor. Josh Higgs won the best U10 player in the competition. Congratulations to all concerned with a bold challenge in all competitions.
