ESCC: Zoe in Kavala

Zoe Varney is playing in the U15 girls section of the European Schools Chess Championships over the next two weeks here in Kavala, Greece. It is the first time she has played for England and she is very excited and nervous.

I intend to blog on her progress regularly, and probably also for Marianne Hauer and Elizaveta Sheremetyeva from Witney Chess Club. Having three Oxfordshire girls playing for England in this tournament is a great achievement.

Andrew is an ECF-accredited chess coach and very active in coaching juniors in the Oxfordshire area on a professional basis. He attends Cumnor Chess Club when he gets a chance to take a break from coaching on Thursday nights. One of the books he recommends to his students is ‘How to Beat Your Dad at Chess’ but his own children are definitely beyond the point of needing such a reference!
