25th Happy New Year

Southern Daily Echo

There were wins for Salisbury A, Basingstoke A and Chandlers Ford A and Basingstoke C recorded in the fortnight before Christmas. Division 2 of the Southampton Chess League remains very tight with only one point separating the five teams.

A happy New Year to all readers of this column as I complete 25 years as the writer of it, during which time every single Southampton Chess League result has been printed in the column, and an article has been submitted virtually every week during these 25 years.
