  England's Glorney Cup Shock
 
 
Extract from chess volumn 28: September 11th 1963, page 362
 
 
History was made in this year's Glorney Cup matches when Ireland inflicted the first ever defeat on an English team in this tournament and a triple tie resulted between Ireland, Scotland and England. Perhaps a slight relaxation of concentration following two 5-1 victories plus undoubted fatigue after a long tireing journey and a double round on the previous day, found the English players not at their best, but all credit to a fighting Irish team who, as so often in the past, reserved their best performance for the final round.

Unfortunatly Mr Glorney was unable to attend the prize-giving which followed a lightning tournament on the Wednesday evening, but it was fitting that the chair at the ceremony was taken by Brother Somerling, for it was his efforts that ensured the extreme comfort of all the competitors during their stay at St. Joseph's School for Blind Boys, Drumcondra, Dublin, where the matches were played.

On the third day, the players relaxed on a coach tour to b~ray Head laid on by the Irish Secondary Schools' Chess Union.

The Glorney Cup Committee held a short meeting at which approval was given for the inviting of continental teams for the 1964 nmatches to be held in England during the last week in July. Mr Cassidy in controlling his first major event throughly upheld the high tradition of Irish hospitality.


England, Scotland and Ireland finished equal with 4 match points each. Game points: England 12½; Scotland 9½; Ireland 9; Wales 5.
