It is with great sadness that we have learned that Liverpool chess Club second team captain Tim Miles has passed away this week.
Tim has been unwell for the last 12 months but was only recently diagnosed with a terminal illness. Jim Gallagher and Sean Frost visited Tim recently in Marie Curie Hospice where he was in his usual great spirits despite his condition and donated many of his chess books to the club.
Tim can be seen here winning the Liverpool Blitz championship for 2018 less than 12 months ago which he was very proud of.
He was also delighted to take on the Liverpool 2 captaincy this year and had proved to be a very strong player for Liverpool over the last few seasons.
Tim was also senior lecturer at Liverpool John Moores university as well as a stand up comedian.
He will be very sorely missed at Liverpool chess club but he will be remembered as a great chess player who stepped forward to help out at the club with great enthusiasm and humour.
Our deepest condolences go out to Tims family from all members of Liverpool chess club.
