28.3.15 - There is a problem with sending League results in to the website. Keith Smith is trying to fix this.


It is with very great regret that I have to report that David James died suddenly on Monday 9th March. It was only a few years ago, following his retirement, that David resumed his chess career, and, being the kind of person he was, he soon took on several responsible positions. Apart from being the current DCCA President, he was Secretary of the Durham City Club and also the captain of its team in the Northumbria League – his conscientious hard work and invariably cheerful demeanour will be sorely missed. A fuller tribute, together with the funeral arrangements, will follow soon on the Durham City Chess Club website. In the meantime our thoughts are with David’s widow Coleen and her family.
