28 September 2023 - Eccles 4 have withdrawn from the League; apologies to the teams inconvenienced by this late withdrawal after the fixtures have been published

September 2023 - we are delighted to welcome back Altrincham, after a short break, and University, after a long break; new or returning clubs and teams are very welcome.

In order to accommodate the University, it has been agreed they will play all their matches at home for the 2023/24 season.

You will appreciate that placing teams in the correct divisions, especially new or returning ones with considerable playing strength, isn't easy; the Fixtures Committee have pondered hard to come up with an appropriate structure for the season, and to allocate the teams to divisions accordingly.

Team Captains are politely reminded that all Players should read the "Code of Conduct for Players" before their first match, and abide by it before, during and after all MCF fixtures.

A reminder re Defaults; the player defaulting should be put down as Default, but their "opponent" as Not Named; the result should be entered as e.g. 1-0 (def) not as 1-0

Clubs are asked to do their best to fulfil all their fixtures. Not being able to field one's best team is not a valid reason for postponing or defaulting a match. When a team is unable to fulfil a fixture, or is unable to field a full team, it is courteous to inform and apologise to the opposing club with as much notice as possible. (The MCF Fixtures Memorandum).

Please address all fixtures queries, issues etc to the MCF Fixtures Secretary Elliott Barnett, preferably by email.
https://www.manchesterchess.com/league-and-match-rules has the Memoranda and Rules that apply for the season.

Enjoy your chess!
