The Cumbria Junior Chess Tournament took place at Long Marton Community School on Saturday 30/09/2023. There were Under 18 and Under 13 sections.

This was the second post lockdown Cumbria Junior Chess Tournament put on by John Lydon, the Cumbria Chess Association Junior Organizer, and the entries were over double that of the first. The Under 13 Section was contested by 21 players. Amoghajay Kashyap won this section to become the Cumbria Under 13 Champion. Amoghajay is pictured here holding his winnerís trophy and certificate. Amoghajayís younger sister Nydilay also competed in this group.

John Davis teaches chess in his school and holds a tournament for local schools every year. Cumbria Chess Junior Organizer, John Lydon presented the school with a donation of chess books as thanks and appreciation.
