Weekly chess reports published in the "County Down Spectator" and its sister title "The Newtownards Chronicle"

Over the years, Bangor Chess Club has used the local papers to publicise its activities. Unfortunately it is often difficult to determine authorship of these articles as they were either unsigned or produced annonymously by staff reporters and/or photographers.

The articles we have available can be attributed as follows:

2003-2005 series: authored primarily by Drew Ferguson. At the time, the editorial policy of the paper prevented publication of games and photographs. Pictures included in our rendering of the articles were probably submitted with article text but usually only the text made it into the paper.
