Re: ECF Director elections for 2012/13

I think you have done a great job whilst you have been International Director Lawrence. Nobody could have been more conscientious and hard-working. Your hard work and dedication has been appreciated and much admired. You will be a great loss to the ECF but delighted you will again have some time to...

Re: Telegraph report about Austria

I'm surprised that Peter thinks that the ECF should postpone action This is peak time for international junior teams. There's the group just back from the Athens under 20 and the group just heading out to Prague. If there are "lessons are to be learned", they would apply to the Athens and Prague gr...

Re: 99th British #Chess Championships 2012

I don't think there has been a Scottish player since 2007. During the period 2004–2007, the British title went to a Scottish player each time: three wins by Jonathan Rowson, then one by Jacob Aagaard. Also, for each of the four years from 2003 to 2007 when the title of British women’s champion ...

Re: Southern Giga Final

Hopefully Richard James will have some knowledge of the early days of what became the UK Chess Challenge.
