Our Committee

Our committee consisits of a dedicated team of chess enthusiasts who both love the game and the great club which we have helped build over the last few years.

Club President


Club Secretary


Been playing the game for over 50 years and hoping that one day I will stop feeling like a beginner.



I have been playing competitive chess for four years after a long absence.

I joined Gosforth to re-awaken my love of the game and look forward to playing most Monday nights.

I am captain of the fourth team and hope to get promoted this year.

Club Captain


I have been playing chess for almost 30 years competitively.  I currently over see all our teams and captain the Gosforth Empire A team. My personal aim is to reach 2200 ECF.

Junior Representitive


Chess has been a light touch hobby my whole life. Now I have stopped playing rugby, chess has had the time it deserved all along. Gosforth Chess Club was welcoming and friendly and I feel honoured to be able to help out in this role.

Members Representative


'It all started with a single move to learn how to play chess'. To describe not knowing anything about chess and attending the club, to playing matches.

Find us on Monday nights after 7pm at the Gosforth Empire Club 32-34 Salters Rd, Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne NE3 1DX, UK
