Johnny Marr Allegro and Online Activity

We’re going to run this season’s Johnny Marr Allegro on Tuesday 26th May through lichess. We will make and publish the pairings during the event. Please sign up by emailing myself ( or Andre ( by Sunday 24th May.

Our usual tournament activity continues. We retailed our title in this week’s UK CLubs Self Isolating Pawns battle on Saturday, and the Wednesday blitz event saw the biggest turnout so far with 52 players. Grandmaster Matthew Turner was victorious, with Calum MacQueen top club member in 3rd. On Tuesday we are looking at the effect of changing time controls for our club night.

This week, you can join the Tuesday friendly allegro night here, and our Wednesday blitz here. Password is 1822 again.
