Date Notes
30 August 2015 7 games, including simul wins against Jonathan Penrose and Sir Stuart Milner-Barry. As at 2015, Barry Sandercock (born 1930) is one of the most active club players in England and an old colleague of mine from when I played county chess for Buckinghamshire in the 1960s. But Barry goes back much further than that - he recalls making his county debut in 1946! I persuaded him to show us a few of his games over the years. These are mainly from simuls, with one notable one-to-one win against John Littlewood. JEL was very old at the time - but, then, so was Barry! Many thanks to Barry for sending me the games.
22 February 2023 It's my sad duty to report that Barry Sandercock died on 21 February 2023. R.I.P. Tributes have been posted to him on the English Chess Forum.
