Ian George 0 - 1 DV Lofts (Basingstoke Open, Rd.1, 22/07/1977)

POST-WAR COUNTY CHAMPIONS

No.6: DV Lofts (1953)

It was only many years later that I found out that my first-round opponent at the 1977 Basingstoke Open was a former Cornwall Champion. This is the only game of his that I know of and he told me that it was his first after a long absence from the game.
