It is with great sadness and shock that the UKBGF learned of the recent passing away of Wayne Felton.
Wayne was a great friend of the backgammon world generally and the UKBGF specifically, having been its accountant in recent years as well as serving on the Rules Sub-committee.
A regular tournament winner with a very generous and witty personality, Wayne leaves a great void behind him. The esteem and affection felt by so many players for Wayne has been demonstrated by numerous posts on social media.
Dod Davies is preparing a fitting tribute to him which will be posted here in due course.
For now however we just pass our deepest condolences to his family (especially his daughter Annabel) and close friends.
RIP Wayne – you will be sorely missed by all who knew you.
