Hi, my name is Phil. I’m in my 50’s and am a computer programmer.

I’ve tried learning Go a few times, and never succeeded. I read a few books, play through the explanations of life and death etc. Then I get onto a Go server, and am mercilessly thrashed by a six-year-old.

This time, I’ve found a club, and hope to be able to get along every week or two, so if there is someone there with absolutely heroic levels of patience, maybe I’ll get somewhere...?

Great to read this Phil!

I assume you're referring to our Manchester go club? The club is in a good place at the moment I think - there are a broad range of players with different levels of experience. I'm sure all the players will be pleased to encourage and/or help out a new player.

Welcome also to the forum.
