Sussex Under 11 Boys vs. She Plays To Win, 6th February 2021

Thank you to IM Lorin D’Costa for making this match possible and congratulations to the She Plays to Win Team on a resounding victory.

The format was a 28-board match, 2 games against the same opponent, time control 25 mins plus 5 secondss increment.

We were up against some of the best girls in the UK and the final score line of 43.5 to 12.5 was somewhat harsh. There were many long, hard-fought games (particularly in the first round) and I was pleased with the efforts of our team.

The Sussex squad:

James Beecroft, Henri Blin, George Boxer, Aidan Burnside, Luke Chapman, Nick Deacon, Luke Freeman, Emil Gazala, Aditya Gupta, Ned Hafner, Caspar Irani, Thomas Irani, Joseph Johnson, Bradley Merchant, Samuel Merchant, Austin Mitchell, Cillian Nagy, Nayan Keats Rastogi, Kaysan Salajee, Ernest Saunders, Oliver Seeds, Leo Sena, Taran Sharma, Aran Skelton, Sahil Soni, Shrey Soni, George Tagg, Charlie Wannasin Bell
