Yorkshire Junior League

Round 2


I am pleased to announce that the second round of the Yorkshire Junior League will be held on Saturday 9th February 2019 at Wigginton Primary School, Westfield Lane, Wigginton, York, YO32 2FT. †I would like to thank Peter Cloudsdale for his help in negotiating this venue and to the White Rose Chess Academy for their continued support.


The timings will be the same as for previous events; arrive 13:00 for a 13:30 kick-off and finish at 17:00. †Once again it will be teams of six and I look forward to welcoming returning and new teams. †There will be a charge of £6 per team which will go to offset the cost of trophies and venue hire.


Andrew Zigmond
