UK Youth Go Team finish sixth in European Team Tournament

European Youth Go Team Championship

The UK Youth GO team have finished a respectable sixth out of the twelve teams competing in the European online Youth Go Team Tournament. This year the draw was an accelerated Swiss which meant the top teams were paired against each other from an early stage. This gave our team more chances to play more evenly matched opponents. We picked up wins against Poland (3-2) and Italy, Switzerland and Austria (4-1) and lost to Czechia (2-3) and Croatia, Slovenia and Serbia (1-3).

As last year we struggled most on the U20 board where we do not yet have any dan players. However our U12s continue to excel in this event - we picked up wins in 6 or the 7 games played in this age group with two of our U12 players also playing up an age group on occasion.

Well done to our squad of 13 players selected for this event - U20s: Laurence Turner, Elom Willson and Kapriel Chiarini, U16s: Oscar Selby, Alex Terry, Dylan Zhu Dong, Charlotte Bexfield, Hasan Nisar and U12s: Edmund Smith, Aidan Wong, Wenzhou Mei, Alexander Hsieh, David Rosental. Almost all players were able to play in at least one match.
