Date Notes
11 February 1998 First loaded as a zipped file on BritBase. 138 games across three sections, including 11 stubs/byes.
23 September 2020 The same games but with some more forenames and a couple of minor corrections. I would be grateful if someone more familiar with the Welsh chess scene of this era could help me with some more names. I have sourced some of them from BMD records.
