Sad news – the founder of the Mens Chase Cup, George Chase, dies
He helped establish the Stamford Squash Club and founded the Mens Chase Cup.
A former general practitioner in Stamford, Lincolnshire (b Chesterfield 1914), he died on 15 February 2003. After a brief spell in practice in Newark, Harold moved to Stamford in 1943, where he worked until retirement in 1976.
He was always involved in sport, gaining a half blue for fives at Cambridge, and later in Stamford captaining the Burghley Park Cricket Club and establishing the Stamford Squash Club. After retirement, he lowered his golf handicap by playing regularly.
He had a profound Christian faith that helped him die at peace after a prolonged illness. He leaves behind his wife, Peggy; three children; and eight grandchildren. [Derek Chase]
