Oliver Frank Sproson

Saturday 6 July 2002

We are sad to announce the death of one of the B.C.A. long-playing correspondence players, Oliver Sproson, who died peacefully in hospital on Saturday 6 July, having suffered a first heart attack on the previous day.

Oliver was a very keen correspondence chess player and entered into the B.C.A. postal tournaments with middling success. His personality was enjoyed by all on the postal circuit, and his play often led to interesting positions over the board.

Oliver was also interested in new variations and was a keen study of books, and was interested in giving many variations a try, and wouldn't cringe from any opponent. Although Oliver did not rise very high in the chess gradings, he always enjoyed his chess, and will be missed by everyone in the association.
