RIP John Davis

John Davis, who died on 9th July 2016, had a very active role in Merseyside chess for over 40 years, ending only with his death.

He arrived in Liverpool in the early seventies to work at Royal Insurance. It was not long before he took on team captaincy, first of the second of its two chess  teams and then of its sole team. By the mid eighties he was the club secretary and he continued in these roles  until the demise of that club in 2005. He then continued to play competitive chess in the Hoylake team in the same Merseyside league.
