Chelmsford Junior Chess Tournament
The 1st Essex Junior Grand Prix of 2017/18 was held at the Moulsham Junior School, Chelmsford and attracted 94 entrants – an increase of five from last year. We welcomed many strong players from outside of Essex who were no doubt keen on qualification for the London Junior Chess Championships. They were all good competition for the improving Essex pool of players.
