Welcome to the Stafford Chess Club LMS home page

In 2023-2024 we are competing in:
Wolverhampton League Division 2
North Staffs League Division 2 & Intermediate Cup
Cannock League Divisions 2, 3 & 4.

The Simon Cup is our primary Club Standard Play annual tournament - this year it is being played without any handicap over 5 rounds of Swiss with the top 2 players contesting the Final. In addition, we will be holding the inaugural Andrew Leadbetter Trophy for players rated below 1500 ECF to run alongside the Simon Cup.

We also play a variety of one off events across the season on Friday evenings when we have no league matches scheduled. All results will be shown in the Events section.
