YCA League Result Reporting for 2018-19

(Notice from Andrew Zigmond, YCA Competitions Controller)


Dear All


Obviously we are just now one week away from the 2018-19 season. This season the results will be reported on the ECF league management software rather than on chessnuts and the link can be found here http://ecflms.org.uk/lms/node/1395/home. To navigate the results use the tabs for each division that can be found on the left and ignore (for now) the latest results at the bottom.


As I am still learning the new software and have to build team lists from scratch the inputting and publishing of results will be slightly slower than it has been in recent years, not helped by the fact that I am working next weekend as well. I am sure you all appreciate this and thank you in advance for your patience.
