Stockport and District Chess League 

 

13th April 2021 - The 2019-20 season is now closed - see below


Please direct any comments or queries regarding this website to the Website Manager.

With the possibility of the resumption of over the board chess later this year, the committee has been considering the way forward.

With regard to the unfinished 2019-20 season, the League rules state that the season should have ended in May last year (as agreed at the 2019 Fixtures Meeting). We did not enforce this, in the hope that it would be possible to resume the interrupted season at some point. However, too much time has now passed and we feel it would be best to start afresh, hopefully in the Autumn. The 2019-20 season is therefore declared closed.

We intend to award league titles to the teams with the best 'points per match' record (PPM) in each division. The League tables have been revised to reflect this. This means that the 2019-20 champions are -

Division 1 - Macclesfield A
Division 2 - East Cheshire A
Division 3 - Macclesfield C
Limit League - Stockport

However, PPM will not necessarily be used as a basis for promotion/relegation. When we have more clarity on when the season can start, we will call an AGM, at which the formation of divisions will be discussed.
