Neil who captained the 1st team in all leagues became invaluable organising matches. In 2011 Eccles won the Silver Rook for C Division under his captaincy and in 2012 spent a brief season as captain of B Division.
He continued to support Eccles Chess Club throughout his 70's and retired in 2013 due to his health.
Those who knew Neil will remember him for all his hard work and commitment. Signed Eccles Chess Club
