Ready for the 2021-22 Season
Fixtures for the season have been imported. Club secretaries should check that these are as expected and let us know if any amendments are required. I believe everyone now has the required access. Captains are listed on the "Team Captains" tab, again please get in touch if any of these details seems wrong. If you are a captain and are logged in, you'll see contact details. Please ensure your own contact details are complete and correct. You can update them within your account settings.

Welcome to the ECF League Management System for the Bury Area Chess League.

If you run into difficulties entering or confirming results or generally using this site please use the "Contact Organisation Owner" links to get in touch.

This site is the main source for each of the following:

The BACL website remains the main source for BACL news, Club Venue details, the BACL rules, and a variety of other useful information. Logged in users can also access an electronic copy of the latest BACL Handbook.

Because the ECF LMS was not created with only the Bury Area Chess League in mind, some of the features may not align perfectly with the BACL rules. If you come across anything of the kind, please get in touch and we'll see what can be done about it. We'll also make a note of it in the list below, so as to avoid the issue tripping people up if possible.

BACL Bonus Point
The bonus point is not added within result of individual fixtures. It is added to points total in the league tables.

User Guide
I have started to put together a user-guide to some of the less obvious functionality within the LMS. You can find it here. So far it includes:

  • Adding New Players
  • Adding or Amending an Estimated Rating
