Mike reaches the age of eighty next year and once again proves the point that age is no barrier in chess.
He played very solidly throughout the Ipswich Club Championship which is played over six rounds during the course of the season. He was unbeaten in the competition and along the way attained admirable victories against former Club Champions Steve Gregory and Ted Matthewson whilst dropping only one half-point against Tim Lunn (also a former Club Champion).
Well done Mike!
