The 2nd WLJCC Championship was held on 4th & 11th of December. It was a preliminary selection for the EPSCA (English Primary School Chess Association) Under 9 Championship. All the boys did well and were quite enthusiastic! Clifford has only played in the first Saturday; he had to play in London Junior Championships. Paul & Jules had also an excuse not to be there for the second Saturday, and Thomas unfortunately fell ill. They all played 3 games only.
