Started playing chess aged 9, school captain at 12 - won National Association of Boys Clubs "Birmingham" final aged 13; National Finalist representing Birmingham aged 14. Joined Sparkhill then discovered Bernard Cafferty and Tony Miles at Birmingham Chess Club. Played for Lucas in BDCL Division 2 and Warwickshire, and reached grade 130 between 1973 to 1979.

Stopped playing for 37 years until September 13th 2016. I have played for Greenlands and Worcestershire, reaching a grade of 132, until health problems forced me to stop hosting County matches at Greenlands Chess Club where I am Secretary.

I started Greenlands Chess Academy but due to Covid-19, Academy no longer exists. Greenlands Chess Club is currently suspended except here on chess.com
