Top young players at the Giga-Finals and British Championships

We were well represented in the Giga-Finals in Manchester over the weekend of 13th/14th July. Dayna Ferguson coming 4th in the Under 8 Girls and Daniel Ferguson coming a well placed joint 15th in the Under 7 Boys. Dayna also played in the British Championships in Torquay.

The Giga-Finals have the top qualifiers from around the country. Its difficult to get into and a tough tournament to play in with top players from all over.

The players qualified through the Belfast Mega-final organised at Methodist College by Graham Murphy.

Its excellent to see our young players pit their skills against other top players in these tournaments.

The final results at the Giga-Finals:

Daniel Ferguson ( Muchgrange, Co Louth) Joint 15th in the Under 7 boys with 3 points

Noah Davey-Piekaar (Batanic Co Antrim) in the Under 8 boys with 0.5 points

Dayna Ferguson (Muchgrange,  Co Louth) joint 4th in the Under 8 girls with 4 points

Charly Lavery (Botanic CoAntrim) in the Under 9 Boys with 0 points

Marcus McEneany (Campbell College, Co Down) in the Under 13 boys with 1 point

Hannah Armstrong (Erne Integrated College Co, Fermanagh)  joint 12th in the Under 13 girls with 2 points

Jake Patterson (Children's Chess, Co Down) joint  21st in the Under 14 boys with 2 points
