RIP Oliver Horrocks

I have received the following from Alsager Chess Club:

"Alsager Chess Club recently received the sad news of the passing of Oliver Horrocks. 

He died peacefully on the 2nd February 2024 at the grand old age of 93 years.

A very good player in his time, some current Members struggle to recall when he was first associated with Alsager, but we think it was since the 1960's.

Away from his chess hobby, Oliver was a community leader, formerly he was the Rector of Barthomley.

He was the dearly loved husband of Pam and loving father of Joe and Clare.

He will be sadly missed."
