The loss of Marcus Porter has deeply affected members of our club.

 

Please read the club’s tribute to Marcus which includes photos of him during his time with us.

 

There is also a chesschat.org thread with further tributes to Marcus.

 

Marcus will be missed by all of us, and never forgotten, and our club will be creating a new tournament in his honour – details will be advised in due course.
