The Friends Trophy was a competition held within the club for all its members. It was cleverly handicapped in a number of ways to try and give all members a reasonably equal chance of winning. Following is a list of names and the dates they received the trophy. We need to look into why the trophy wasn’t awarded in 1968 and 1971.

The recent resurgence in interest in Chess and Club Membership has resulted in the re establishment the Trophy and in 2014 it is being actively fought for by 26 members of the club .
