New Welsh Candidate Master

FIDE have awarded the Candidate Master title to Anthony Hughes, formerly of Newport and Swansea University. 

Wales sent a team of six to the 1977 World Student Championships in Mexico City. It included Peter Varley and Charles Morris. Also Anthony who performed exceptionally well to acquire a FIDE rating of 2220 on the Jan 1978 list; and 2200 or over at any time is sufficient for the title. Anthony now lives in Surrey and hasn't played in Wales for maybe a decade. Hopefully we'll see him again soon.
