NCJS Trip to Frydek-Mistek, Czech Republic 6th-10th April 2023

Kit Blades, Luke Freeman and Nayan Keats Rastogi were all selected to represent the NCJS (National Chess Junior Squad) at the annual Tournament of Young Talents in Frydek-Mistek, Czech Republic.

All three were in the Under 15 section and competed over a gruelling 9 rounds.

All three performed well in their first chess tournament overseas and will have grown from the experience. Congratulations to Kit who came first out of a field of 40 entrants on tie-break with 6.5 out of 9, followed by Nayan on 6. The team were presented with a special cake.

Thanks to Sussex’s Mike and Debbie Forster for leading the England delegation.
