Chris Burley:  The club is very sad to learn that Chris Burley, a member of New Amersham Bridge Club for many years, passed away peacefully on Saturday 17 December 2022.

The funeral will be on Friday 6 January at 2pm at St Mary's Beaconsfield.

The Berks and Bucks County Bridge Association reported, 

"Chris started playing serious bridge in Middlesex in the 1950s, where he had considerable success for about twenty years. He then gave up bridge for some time, before being lured back to the table in 1992. He joined Berks and Bucks and from then until 2014 (when he retired from competition bridge) was hugely successful in all the county events, winning every event at least once. His wins included the County Pairs Championship on no fewer than four occasions. He also had notable success at national level which included the unusual ‘double’ of being the winning captain in the National Swiss Teams as well as the National Seniors Swiss Teams.  Chris served on the BBCBA  committee for several years including a stint as Chairman and was also a member of the selection and disciplinary sub-committees. 

Although he was a fiercely determined competitor, Chris was always the perfect gentleman at the bridge table and was liked and respected by all who knew him well. He will be greatly missed."
