John Light added to his impressive accumulation of prizes at the recent Darnall & Handsworth Rapidplay. This time he shared top place (with one other) in the Minor with 5 points from a possible 6.

Tom Leah, who last season was outright winner of the Leeds CA Gambit Trophy and our Limewood Player of the Year, took part in the Open section of the 4NCL congress at Normanton earlier this month. He was competing in a field of 30 that included 7 titled players.

Tom found himself in the happy position of coming away with more prize money than either of the two GMs, Keith Arkell and Mark Hebden. They shared 3rd place with several others on 3.5 points, winning £25 apiece. Tom scored 3 points, earning a Performance prize of £50.
