FREEMAN BOARD-A-MATCH

STEVE BARNFIELD

1953 - 2019

Steve was a talented mathematician who began

playing bridge at Manchester Grammar School

before going to Christ's College, Cambridge where

he sometimes represented the university.

On leaving university he worked first for the

Inland Revenue before becoming a tax expert at

Arthur Andersen. His career took him to London

where he became a regular player at the Young

Chelsea Bridge Club.

Steve won many of the major English

competitions, such as the Four Star Teams at

Brighton, the National Swiss Teams, the

Tollemache Cup and the Garden Cities Trophy. He

represented England in a Junior Camrose in 1978.

He is probably best known for his major

contribution to bridge administration. He served

on the EBU Law & Ethics Committee for over 15

years, six as chairman, and was honoured by the

EBU with a Silver Award earlier this year.
