The Time Traveller

The original series of articles by the Time Traveller appeared in David McAlister's web magazine "Ulster Chess History." They were the fruit of his researches into contemporaneous newspaper reports plus various Irish and Ulster archives and covered the period up to the early 1980s. Those articles will now be presented here at the official UCU website and David will add new articles as well.

Some of our trophies are now of considerable vintage, with the Silver King and Williamson Shield both over 100 years old. This section details the winners of our trophies, together with those who donated them or to whom they are dedicated.
