Roger Simpson (1932-2016)

Post by Paul Bielby » Tue Dec 06, 2016 11:44 am

I was very sorry to learn that Roger Simpson had passed away at the end of November. A member of Chester-Le-Street Chess Club and more recently Durham City, he was twice President of the NCCU and was president and held many other offices in the Durham Association. I first met him in the '60s when he was NCCU Junior Organiser. He was Headmaster at Washington School and the school was the regular venue for the Durham County Congresses during his headship. He was awarded the BCF President's award for Services to Chess in 1997. He will be sadly missed

Rest with pieces
I float like a pawn island and sting like an ignored knight :mrgreen:
