We are sad to learn of the death on Sunday of Colin Simpson.
Colin was a recipient of the EBU's Diamond Award in 2017 for his excellence and success over a sustained period for England's international teams. He was a Senior World and European Champion, and had represented England's Open and Senior teams in 13 World and European competitions.
His friends and team mates have described him as a great player, and a lovely man to spend time with both at, and away from, the table.
His obituary is available here.
