Neath & West Wales Under 11

The Netsima Neath & West Wales chess tournament, run by Castell Nedd Chess Club, took place on Tuesday 14th May with a battle between twenty three youngsters from Swansea and Neath. An evening of chess for the under elevens saw a major battle between several players but Tom Farley and Catrin Daniels took joint place after they managed to knock a few points off the other favourites.  Tom's win also helped Waunceirch primary take the Neath schools trophy.

 In the under nine section, St. Michael's had sent out their best player, Jack Cummines, but he was out foxed by Joel Cheung from Oakleigh who managed to checkmate his opponent in a last round duel that played for the title.

Tracey Farley, Tom's mother, commented "Tom was very happy with his joint win with Catrin, but was even happier that he, Harri and Owain retained the school cup for Waunceirch Primary, a little legacy as they move on to Dwr-y-felin in September".
