Eric E Croker RIP

3rd November 1923 – 18th December 2014

Eric became an international arbiter in 1989, but he was much more than that. He received the ECF President’s Award for Services to Chess in 1991 and was a BCF Senior Arbiter.
He was a pioneer of the grading of junior chess in the SCCU. He remarked later that I was very useful, being one of the few juniors who also played adult chess. He was a past President of the Middlesex County Chess Association and of the SCCU. He had been Chairman of the Chess Arbiters Assocation. He was a mainstay of the arbiting team at the Chess Magazine Festival, Guernsey and British Championships; receiving the Richard Boxall Salver for services to the congress in 1993.
