European School Championships, Novi Sad, Serbia, 20-28 June

I had initially agreed to do either the World or European School Championships, however after receiving an email from the ECF Director of Junior Chess Phil Ehr, that IM Richard Pert withdrew due to a sport injury just a day before the flight, I replaced him. 

Meet the team, read the reports and look at the team photo. I coached Jonathan Finn U15, Tom Finn U13 and Tom McLarren U11. Take a look at the final results

I am looking forward to be selected again as an England junior squad coach.
