The Chess Team’s half-term trip

Members of the Copthorne Chess Team travelled to Aldro School in Surrey to compete in the 19th Aldro Inter Schools Chess Tournament. 96 players from 12 schools competed in a 3-match rapidplay – Copthorne was the only Sussex school represented.
Sarena Bhargarva, Josh Higgs, Gabriel Jones and James Reid were our team in the U11 Major competition.  The standard of play was very high with a number of England players in the tournament.  Copthorne scored 5/12 and was placed mid-table.  A special mention for Gabriel who was taking part in his first tournament – well played.
