A KNIGHT TO REMEMBER
Club member Michael Hemming fulfilled a lifetime's ambition by successfully completing The Knight's Tour in a pre-Christmas entertainment at the club. The Knight's Tour involves moving a knight around all of the chess board's 64 squares without being placed on a square twice. Michael achieved this without looking, with the moves being recorded on a display board. Assisting Michael was Jaimie Wilson, left, and Adam Rafael Holmes, centre.
JANUARY 16: A fantastically competitive match between Chichester/Bognor A and Fareham A. The undoubted highlight was Jaimie Wilson's conversion of bishop plus three pawns v bishop and two pawns against 213-rated Tony Corkett, believed to be the first win by a Chichester player against Tony for some years. Results: 1. Jaimie Wilson 1-0 T. Corkett; 2. Bill McDougall adj M. Chapman; 3. Andrew McDougall 1-0 K. Gregory; 4. Rolandas Lukoshius 0-1 F. Graham; 5. Ian Judd 0-1 D. Elliott; 6. Lara Osiyemi 1-0 J. Coburn. The match stands 3-2 to us with Bill McDougall's game adjourned. There were wins for Andrew McDougall, Jamie Wilson and Lara Osiyemi.
JANUARY 10: Chichester/Bognor B made it three wins out of four with a 3.5-1.5 away victory at Portsmouth B. Details: P. Eyles 1 M. Spence 0; S. Russell 0 L. Osiyemi 1; B. Cochran 0 A. Miller 1; A Bucchi 0 M. Plumb 1;
