Bob Clark has been playing competitive chess since 1968, and currently plays for Penyffordd and Holmes Chapel chess clubs. He is a former league controller for the Chester and District League, and has won the league individual championship a record six times.


He has worked as a computer analyst for many years, but inspired by club teammate John Gormanís success teaching chess he is now coaching for Chess in Schools in the Sefton area. He hopes he will have an equally positive impact on the children.


As well as playing chess Bob is also a member of a local golf club.
