The UK Youth Team Captain, Alison Bexfield, writes:

The youth team is playing Germany on Saturday 15th December and teams have been chosen.

This is our 2nd match in the 2018/19 European Youth Go Team Championship (EYGTC).

The match is interesting. We narrowly won our opening match against Croatia. Germany may prove an even harder test. They have a very strong squad, but are wisely and sportingly giving mid-order players some match experience. We thus have an outside chance of winning it, but only if everyone plays up to their top level.

We wish the team luck especially Yanyi, who is making his debut for our team. Families, friends, Brits and Germans, and all Go-players are welcome to watch any of the matches on KGS.

The matches will all commence at 2pm UK time.

The UK (players on the left) are black on boards 2 and 4, and white on boards 1, 3 and 5.

  1. Yueran Wang (U20) 2 dan v Feiyang Chen (U20) 2 dan
  2. Edmund Smith (U16) 3 kyu v Manuel Jacobsen (U16) 1 dan
  3. George Han (U16) 3 kyu v Gregor Semmler (U16) 2 kyu
  4. Daniel Yang (U12) 1 dan v Qixuan Wei (U12) 1 dan
  5. Yanyi Xiong (U12) 15 kyu v Zion Kim (U12) 7 kyu

I am unfortunately unable to be there to supervise, on this occasion. I'm grateful to Paul Smith, who is kindly standing in as our responsible adult, and will be there ready to intervene should any problem arise.

After this match, there are 2 remaining Saturday fixtures, on 12th January and 16th February.
