Page created 27 June ’18, but updated 16 July

Well, may seem a little early, but welcome to a new season!

Over the coming weeks, the plan is to put information here that will hopefully help the clubs, secretaries, captains and members.

This will specifically include:

  • First fixture drafts
  • An expanded “Captain’s Notes” on the Captain’s role and certain FIDE rules (uploaded 16 July ’18 and a draft for consultation and not final – pl click below)
  • News clubs want published about themselves, such as start time, dress code and any change of team match night etc
  • And anything else!

The introduction of the ECF League Management System (LMS) was fully endorsed at the June B&DCL & Dorset League AGM’s, so will become effective for both our Dorset leagues from season 2018/19. It means that although this website will continue as previously, it will not carry duplicate results, league tables or latest grades – all this will be through a link to LMS. And Captains will be responsible for uploading results to LMS, which has been widely welcomed.

If you can, please check out this page from time to time over the summer.

Many thanks!
