I have played in a tournament and two matches over the last month. Here are the games from them:

 

South of England U16 Closed

Result: 4/5, 1st.

 

Round 1

 
Round 2
 
Round 3
 
 Round 4
 
Round 5
 
The other players 3/4 apart from my opponent both drew quickly, so a draw would be enough for clear first. Details (as I forgot to add them):
 
H.Girinath (2080) 1/2-1/2 G.Price (1938)
 
 
A couple of matches I played:
 
Reading 2-3 Godalming
 
 
I (on Board 1 as two of our players couldn't make it) was the first to finish. Not long after our Board 2 also won, but our Board 4 was losing and our Board 3 was in time trouble. Board 5 should have been a win for us, but he couldn't escape the perpetual and agreed a draw in a won position (to be fair, it was quite difficult). Fortunately our Board 3 somehow contrived to make his opponent agree a draw when his opponent had 10mins against 3 in an only slightly worse position, so we won 3-2.
 
Middlesex U180 7-9 Surrey U180 (ECF grading boundaries)
 
 
Surrey won the match 9-7, which wasn't enough to win the league but got us 2nd out of 4, which I believe means that we're through to the next round.
