Keith Brameld 1954-2017

Many Barnsley, Rotherham and Sheffield chess players will remember Keith Brameld, who died in mid-January 2017 in Nottingham, to where he migrated in the late 80's. Steve Mann's obituary (click this link) describes him as a "bit of a lad". Phil Morgan (Ashfiled CC website) also says "Keith will be remembered for his personality as well as his play", and the Gambit (Notts) CC website obituary tells us that "Yorkshire born Keith, a Sheffield Wednesday fan, joined Oxclose in 1988 and we immediately knew the club would be more fun".
