British Championships (again)

#18 "Rookie": Irish News 3rd September 1983

Grandmaster Jonathan Mestel became British Chess Champion at Southport recently.

While Mestel was put on the pedestal, our local players put up a good show. More than a dozen made the journey from the North, with Roger Beckett finishing joint third in the under-11's and Niall Carton joint seventh in the under-14's.

Below is an earlier win from Roger, which helped him clinch the Newcastle Minor Tournament. Though a one-day event, it took "Four Knights"
