Club Man of the Year Winner !!

It gives me great pleasure to announce that Ron Williams has garnered the most votes and therefore has won the title of  Club Man of the Year 2010 !!

Some of the comments were:

This year my vote has to go to Ron Williams for doing a sterling job as Chairman and Captain of the A team and for playing so many games including helping out the B and C teams whenever asked.

Ron is a superb ambassador for Malpas Chess Club and for Gwent chess and has given freely of his playing time over the season.
