LMS can tell you your grade performance so far this season – but it is only an estimate and more for fun and interest!

Not all County and B&D players may be aware that LMS keeps a running calculation of your grade, but only based on matches so far this season. It is more for interest and fun, than an attempt to accurately project what your grade should or will be. Therefore please note it should be treated with caution, but nevertheless may be interesting- especially if you are on a good run!

The calculation is based on any County and B&D league games LMS has been told about and as listed. So it will exclude other games which may get included in the eventual ECF grading calculation.

As the note under the table below emphasises, it is only an estimate and should not be used. County Grader Phil Wallace rightly adds that grades are calculated on 30 games where possible, so games from 2 previous seasons may be taken into account and make the grade differ from the performance shown in LMS.

To access this information is quite easy. One way is:

Many thanks to Highcliffe’s Richard Ursell who reminded me this feature exists within LMS. (Mike, 7 Nov ’18)
