Derek Horseman RIP

Derek Horseman, veteran player of Southport CC passed away on 18th March following a short illness. Derek played in the Hastings Premier in 1956/7, and recently came joint first in the U180 tournament at the 2008 British Championships in Britain. Derek was a very well known player particularly in the late 40s and 50s (I recall him telling me about playing a radio chess match for England vs Australia through the night before his Mathematics A-level!), and I am sure many members of the ECF may wish to know of his death
