Crewe Chess Congress

Many congratulations to Les Hall, Neville Layhe, Matthew Carr, and their band of willing helpers, for organising such a brilliant congress. There were close on 100 entrants and, as far as I could tell, the whole event ran with barely a hitch so very well done to all concerned. Next year's event has been scheduled for the weekend of 13th/15th October 2017

NSDCA successes were Martyn Harris (Newcastle), who won the Major with a score of 4.5/5, David Price (Crewe), who was joint 3rd in the Intermediate with a score of 3.5/5 and James Marshall (Crewe), Simon Layhe (Crewe) and Richard Martin (Alsager), who finished joint 2nd in the Minor with a score of 3.5/5.

I had intended to publish a photo of Martyn but he thought it might be more likely to drive people away from the website so I relented !!

You can view the full results from the tab at the top of the page.

County Cups

There has been a change to the format of the County Cups following the County AGM in August. They will no longer be knock-out competitions, but one-off end-of-season matches between clubs nominated by the Wolverhampton League and the NSDCA. They will also be restricted to clubs based within the Staffordshire County Boundaries as defined in Article 2 of the County Constitution. Unfortunately, this means that Alsager, Crewe, Holmes Chapel and Macclesfield will not be eligible to be nominated. The revised County Cup Rules can be found here.

Mobile App

Mike Smith has written some code to automatically update the league tables every time I enter a result, saving me an inordinate amount of time. Unfortunately, whilst this is working perfectly on the website we have a problem with it on the mobile app and you can't currently display the league tables from the app - just on the website. The problem is currently being worked on and I'll let you know when it has been resolved.
