A month ago, I asked for a volunteer to become Under 18 Team Manager. Now, Steve Peck, father of promising junior Silas, has stepped forward to say he is prepared to take on the role, for this year at least.
The ECF Under 18 County Championships will be held at the end of June (either 29th or 30th), somewhere in Hertfordshire. Steve now needs to get commitment from our best juniors if we are to compete with the other counties, many of which have some strong players.
As soon as the date and venue are confirmed, Steve will be in contact with all juniors graded over 100. In the meantime, if any of these happen to read this, and are prepared to commit now, will they please contact Steve directly?
We now have Team Managers for the Under 18s and the Under 11s. Perhaps Junior Chess in the county is about to spring back into life?
