Paul Littlewood
4NCL Chairman /
Team Representative

Paul Littlewood
International Master and accomplished bridge player, former British chess champion (1981) Paul has presided over the 4NCL as chairman during its most successful period.

When he became chairman over ten years ago the league consisted of two divisions and 32 teams. The league has now expanded to four divisions and a total of 72 teams. Most of Englandís juniors play 4NCL. During this time 4NCL became one of the strongest leagues in Europe, at one time boasting a Division 1 rivalling the Bundeslega in strength in the top matches.

Paul has demonstrated the sound judgement of Solomon when dealing with league disputes and has drawn on his business acumen, honed during a successful career in the City with Goldman Sachs to make 4NCL the financially stable and expanding league it is today.

We wish Paul well in his future pursuits and endeavour to become restauranteur of the year!
