It’s 25 years since this magnificent cup was awarded by the British Chess Federation to… Stowmarket Chess Club! Yes, little Stowmarket was voted ‘best club in the country’ back in 1988.
It’s high time another trophy was awarded to a Suffolk club. The English Chess Federation awards trophies for the ‘Club of the Year’ and ‘Small Club of the Year’. Perhaps Stowmarket, with a dramatic recent increase in membership, including a number of juniors, should apply again?
Or what about Saxmundham, now competing in the National Club Championship?
Just string a few words together (see Trowbridge’s from 2012) and the trophy can be yours!
