Four young players from De Sprenger Echternach participated in the recent "Open Jeunes de la Forge du Sud" in Dudelange on Saturday 17th December.

Jamie and Laurent represented Echternach in the U10 tournament. Laurent, in particular, proved to be stubbornly difficult to beat, losing only once in seven rounds! His performance gave him a well-deserved top-ten finish in the U8 category, and in the top half overall.

De Sprenger were even more successful in the U18 tournament, with both Kevin and Samuel coming home with trophies. Samuel's solid 5/7 was good enough for an overall 6th place, claiming third place in the highly competitive U12 section. Meanwhile, Kevin's strong performances saw him walk away with the trophy for second place in the U14s. Congratulations to both players!
