Grant Lakeland 1 - 0 Rico Wong (Cornwall Under 18 Championship, Rd.5, 2001)

White tries hard to throw away the win but fails in the end! Douglas Cooke (Liskeard) was the 2001 champion. Both Grant (St Austell) and Rico (Penzance) were part of a group of players who contested some hard-fought Under 18 Championships around this time. At the time of writing (March 2019) Grant is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Eastern Illinois University, having moved to the United States in 2005.
