Teignmouth Chess Club Double Knock-Out

The Teignmouth Chess Club recorded one of its most outstanding years in its 103 years history by winning both the Torbay League K-O competition and the Devon County K-O competition, and all four Torbay League Divisions comprising Brixham, Totnes, South Hams, Torquay, Plymouth and the Torquay Boys Grammar School.

The Torbay K-O Final was contested over 6 boards, against Plymouth at the Plymouth University. The results were Teignmouth players names first: Bill Ingham draw R Luffman; John Gorodi beat B Medhurst; Wally Sapiacha draw A Tatam; W. Tindal beat G Fowles; Ray Chubb lost Y Timonshenkov; Patrick Gwynne beat D Scantlebury, giving a 4 to 2 victory for Teignmouth.

The Devon K-O Final was contested over 8 boards, against Exeter at the Alice Cross Centre, Teignmouth. The results were Teignmouth players names first: Alan Brusey beat D Regis; Bill Ingham draw S Waters; John Gorodi beat S Pope; John Parker lost to K Atkins; Dennis Ayress lost to T Stephenson; John Simons lost to R Scholes; Bill Tindal beat C Kern; Patrick Gwynne beat B Aldwin. The match was held in the balance as the last game approached the final time control with both John Gorodi and Saun Pope, both running out of time to finish the match within the total four hours allowed. John Gorodi had the winning position on the board as Saun Pope tried desperately to cause John Gorodi enough problems to make him use up his three remaining minutes and make him loose on time. The atmosphere was electric with the spectators bursting with their opinions as to the winning combinations. John Gorodi held is nerve and called upon his years of experience in pressure chess situations and won both on the board position and on time.

The Teignmouth Chess Club had its awards ceremony with the President John Simons and Competitions Secretary John Gorodi presenting the following trophies:

Club Champion Alan Brusey. Runner-up Bill Ingham. Alan Brusey goes forward to compete in the County Champions Winter Woods K-O.

Minor Champion Dennis Ayress.

Knockout Winner John Gorodi.

Quickplay Winner Ewan Walton.

The Junior Player of the year was Michael Fisher (who also plays for the Torquay Grammer School) who won the Junior Championship Shield and the handsome Cup Trophy presented to the Club by Deans Brown in 1933. The photo shows Michael Fisher with the two trophies.
