Brian Jones was a leading chess player in the Sheffield and District League where he played top board for Rotherham Chess Club and appearing regularly for the Yorkshire County team. During this time he played many strong players most notably holding GM Tony Miles to a draw (even if the adjudication result looked to be generous). I even have a game agaist him where he took apart a line specially prepared for him! He was a member of the Rotherham team which won the National Team Rapid Play. I lost touch when he emigrated to Australia but he continued to play for the Yorkshire team in the Ward Higgs (County championship) and it was a sad day when he announced his retirement from all chess.
This is an unusual event in that Brian is still very much alive! and long may he remain so.
