Page created 27 June ’18 and updated 17 July ’18

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 draft “Captain’s Notes” on the Captain’s role and certain FIDE rules (now uploaded at 17 July ’18 & link at foot of this page)
  • 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.

Reminder Time Increments of 1hr + 30 secs will apply to County Div 1 matches in season 2018/19, but not to Divs 2 & 3

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

Many thanks!
