Grand-master Danny Gormally, the recently crowned English Rapid Play Champion visited Malpas on Sunday October 8, and played an exhibition match in the Jubilee Hall, against 14 opponents from Cheshire, Shropshire and North East Wales simultaneously.
He beat 13 of his opponents, and drew one, to Charles Lowick Higgie, after which Danny entertained some of his opponents with interesting anecdotes about his life as a Grand master.
