Liverpool Quadrangular International – Results

December 7th, 2014

Scotland had a very successful weekend in what must be one of the toughest fought and closest Liverpool Quadrangular in years.

The first tiebreak was board points and from the results it is clear the teams from all regions were well matched.

Scotland won the U16 event, came second in the U12 and third in the U14.  A link to the results.

My huge congratulations to the U16 team for winning and to all for played and helped in what is always a fun and tough tournament.

Calum MacQueen, International Director (Junior)
