JUNIOR PLAYERS FOR MEDITERRANEAN JUNIOR CHESS CHAMPIONSHIPS

Matthias Gatt and Jamie Farrugia will be representing Malta in the forthcoming Mediterranean Junior Chess Championships for boys and girls under 20 in Chania, Crete from the 26th August to 3rd September.

Besides, both players featured well in the Malta Junior Championships, earning the right to participate.

It will be a great experience for 12-year old Gatt who will be playing abroad for the first time. Gatt has improved significantly in the past year and has brought positive results against higher rated opponents in a recent tournament held last July.

Sixteen year old Farrugia has already participated with the Maltese women’s team in two Olympiads and is fresh from achieving the coveted Women FIDE Master title last year in Tromsø, Norway.
