The following announcement has appeared on the North Circular Chess League website
t is with regret that I have to announce that John Capes passed away on Tuesday 30 July. A full obituary will be published shortly, but to show how much a part of the NCCL John was - he played his first game in the league 8-11-57 and his last 16-10-12 - nearly 55 years later!

I vaguely remember John Capes, when competing in the North Circular Chess League (London), during the 1970's. The Barnet CC has a Perpetual Trophy in his name, Presented to the winner of the Annual Blitz Competition.
