An Oldham Primary Schools' congress at 3Cs attracted 36 entrants and acted as a trial for places on the Oldham junior schools' teams later in the year. 3Cs' players dominated the event with Hunain Malik winning the under-11s' section followed by Ben Newton as runner-up and Ollie Mills third. The under-9s' competition was won by Alannah Ashton with Fateh Muhammed and Savannah Ashton as joint second.

Photographs of the event are shown below (Click on any photo for a larger image).

3Cs hosted a rapidplay event for all their junior members following which certifcates and hoodies were presented to all those who regularly attend the club's main training sessions. The hoodies were due to the efforts of Rachel Newton, one of the club's many parents who work behind the scenes, whilst they also unveiled the new 3Cs' club logo, itself designed by one of our young players Ben Newton (third from left, front row) who had won a competition to produce the new badge which includes the King chess piece; an owl - the emblem of Oldham - and three letter Cs.
