Coaching Day - April

April 3rd

30 juniors attended an invitational coaching day at Bishop Hedley High School in Merthyr Tydfil.  The coaches were FM Ioan Rees, Tim Kett, John Thornton, Ian Eustis and IM Chris Beaumont with assistance from Megan Owens (Top U18 Junior) and Russell Doddington who not only helped with the chess but managed the refreshments as well.
John Thornton worked hard to plan and coordinate sessions so that there was individual coaching, tactical puzzles, rapidplay games, analysis and discussions.  The format will be modified in future sessions but the players all appeared to enjoy the day and we hope this aids their progression.
