Carl Portman’s Chess Crusader

Shropshire players will be interested to know that Carl Portman’s latest book ‘Chess Crusader – confessions of an amateur chess player’ has just been published and there is a lot about Shropshire chess. There are plenty of anecdotes about such things as the visit of Lev Polugayevsky, the mighty cougher that was Norman Andrews, the sadly missed David Everington, and much more.
