Andy Jenkins' funeral will be at the Rowan Chapel, Stockport Crematorium at 1pm on Wednesday December 5th and afterwards at the Wycliffe Hotel, Edgeley.

Andy Jenkins - We are sad to report that Andy Jenkins of Marple Chess Club has passed away. Glenn Trueman has written a piece about Andy which you can read on the
Marple website.

Stockport CC are holding their annual Buzzer Tournament at the Ladybrook Hotel on Tuesday 18th December. Click here for details.

Team Captains - A reminder that BOTH team captains should submit results within two days of the match being played. This helps to resolve errors when the captains have differing versions of the result, which happens surprisingly frequently!

Limit League eligibility - Some clubs occasionally have difficulty putting out a team within the 420 total grade limit (rule 42ii). If this happens, team captains are asked to play their four lowest graded available players, rather than just turning up with three players. Board 4 would be scored as a default as far as the League is concerned, but the actual over the board result of the game would still be submitted for grading. This ensures that no one misses out on getting a game.

Fixtures Meeting minutes added.

Fixtures published. There are likely to be some changes as some clubs were unable to attend the Fixtures Meeting. Please advise the
Fixtures Secretary promptly of any changes, so he does not have to chase up results of matches which have not yet taken place, and to allow this website to be kept up to date.

Divisions for the 2018-19 season can be seen on the Cross Tables page. Fixtures will be published soon after the Fixtures Meeting on 19th September. Results for 2017-18 are now in the History/Archive section.
