On Sunday 5 February, David Zakarian left the Kidlington Congress a round early in order to manage an Oxon Under 9 team in an inter- county match in Newbury.
After the match David wrote:
"Oxfordshire Junior U9 team had a wonderful tournament, coming second out of eight teams in the overall standings. Congratulations to all the players! Every single member of the team contributed to this success and I hope they all have learnt something from this invaluable experience. Special thanks to all the parents and guardians who dedicated one more Sunday to their children's chess adventures!"
