I just had test data in that screen shot, this is the actual order I'll use.

Maybe, but as the other layout is used elsewhere I'll stick to that.

The problem with this is that the move string can be quite large, by
placing it on the right it can grow without any problems.

I may be able to highlight the move part of the display by making it
bold or a different colour or something - I'll have a look.

There isn't much of a problem with room - as the w/l stats are quite big.

It's not straight forward but I'll try for a border.
