Joe Morrison 1930 - 2015 (Ecclesall Chess Club)
It is with the greatest of sadness that we report the passing of Joe Morrison, a stalwart of Ecclesall Chess Club. After a successful career as violinist with the Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and the London Philharmonic Orchestra Joe joined Ecclesall Chess Club in the late 1990s. He has played for every team in the club and has captained many of them. At the time of his death he was an honorary member of the club and as Tournament Organiser he was organising the Club Championship.
Everyone that met him counts him among their friends and he will be sadly missed.
