3rd for U11 Girls at National Finals

Two of our club's girls made big contributions to the EPSCA Girls U11 Finals held at Twickenham on 25th March

Lavanya Maladkar, playing Board 1 for Nottinghamshire, scored 3/3. Alexandra Arlachova, playing Board 3, was also unbeaten on 2.5/3.

In this 3-round jamboree of teams of 12, Notts scored 8/12, 9/12 and 8/12. With Sussex clear winners, 4 teams were tied on 25pts. Fortunately Notts took the trophies for 3rd place on a better tiebreak score.

Great performance by the girls, the only non-southern team to challenge the leaders, and big credit to John Crawley as main coach and team manager, and to Hambel Willow as assistant coach who did huge amounts of analysis on the day!
