Andrew passed away yesterday, I understand, although he had not been well for a while.
Andrew had been a member of Kings Head in London for a long time. I remember seeing him playing for them both in the London League and the 4NCL. He continued playing for them as late as May at the annual Capelle trip, a trip he frequently went on.
He was not just a strong player but also a strong organiser to name but one of his other skills. I was fortunate to meet him several times. I only played him once, in a Kings Head blitz event, the result being somewhat as messy as the game.
If there are any old Kings Head, or London, players on here who would like further details please PM me.
