Hursts both win prizes at Midlands Junior Championships

In a sibling double, Joseph and Kate Hurst both won grading prizes at the Midlands Junior Championships, held at Leicester Grammar School from 16-18 April

In the U14 section, Joseph scored 3/6 and won £50 for best performance rating (the event was FIDE-rated).

Meanwhile in the U9s, Kate matched her brother with 3/6 and also won the grading prize for her section.

Well done to both players, it was a tough tournament of 6 rounds using a long time control, hopefully next year more of our juniors can compete!

A list of prizewinners can be found on the MCCU website, with links to crosstables.
