Neil Pickering RIP

Post by Mick Norris » Mon Jan 04, 2021 7:13 pm

Just received the sad news
The funeral of Neil Pickering who was the Captain of Eccles Chess Club from 1998 - 2013 will be taking place at 10.30 on the 13th January 2021 at St. Peters Parish Church, Churchgate in Bolton where he was a warden for many years.

Neil who captained the 1st team in all leagues became invaluable organising matches. In 2011 Eccles won the Silver Rook for C Division under his captaincy and in 2012 spent a brief season as captain of B Division.

He continued to support Eccles Chess Club throughout his 70's and retired in 2013 due to his health.

Those who knew Neil will remember him for all his hard work and commitment. Signed Eccles Chess Club
