News to appears on both the main and junior news feeds

I am pleased to announce that the UK is fielding a national youth team in the first European Youth Go Team Tournament (which is being held online for logistical reasons).

We have a squad of 12 players from which we select 5 players for each match of which one must be U20, two U16 and two U12. Well done to the 12 players who have been selected for the national youth squad:

  • U20 Melchior Chui
  • U20 Thomas Meehan
  • U16 Hasan Nisa
  • U16 Dylan Zhu
  • U16 Charlotte Bexfield
  • U16 Roella Smith
  • U16 Kelda Smith
  • U16 Alex Terry
  • U12 Oscar Selby
  • U12 Edmund Smith
  • U12 Anthony Ghica
  • U12 Hilary Bexfield

Our first match will be a tough one against Romania on 15 November. We will be updating the junior news pages with the team’s progress in this five round competition.

BGA UK Youth Squad manager

The cartoon booklet "Go An Introduction", where the Chess pieces learn to play from the Go stones, has been reissued. The new version uses pass stones at the end of the game just like in the UK Go Challenge and other tournaments. It also corrects the spelling error "altohether"!
