Omagh Rapidplay 2016

It was great to see some of our Juniors competing with the adults in this years Omagh Rapidplay. All of them performed exceptionally well for their age, but special mention must go to Daniil Zelenchuk who won the Junior Section ahead of some very strong, experienced adult players.
