University of Sheffield Chess Society: Current vs 1970s Alumni

 

An on-line match was played on 04/08/2021 between Sheffield University players of the present (“Current”) and past ones from the 1970s (“Alumni”).  Older S&DCA members will remember most of the Alumni.  Of the Alumni, only Phill Beckett is still active in chess in the S&DCA.  Others are still active chess-players elsewhere, though two seem now inactive in “serious” chess.  The result was as follows:

After 5 games had finished, the score stood at 2˝-2˝, but a win from Chris McSheehy converted that to a win for the Alumni.

 

A further game between Oliver West (Current) and Richard S Hughes (Alumni) is scheduled for the 10th August.
