We were sad to learn of the death of Tom after a long battle with cancer.
He was active in the Notts area in the 1970s and 80s, being a regular for the Nottingham Players club before moving to West Bridgford CC in 1975. He also represented the County both over the board and in correspondence chess, continuing to do so after moving away from the area.
Off the board, he held several NCA posts. He was Adjudication Secretary 1974-5, League Secretary 1975-6, Congress Director 1976-9 and President 1977-79.
