ECF July 2020 Grading List


The new ECF (July 2020) Grading List is now published on the on-line grading database at



Be warned, however, that the downloadable spreadsheet to be found by clicking on “Downloads” is in fact the wrong file, and does not contain the new grades.  For this reason it is not possible as yet for the webmaster to produce a “Yorkshire” list to put on this website.


In practice, the July list gets replaced by an August list with various corrections etc applied to the July list, which is in a sense a first draft for the more reliable August list.  The August list is of course important for the British Championships – except that there are no British Championship this year!  It is a bit like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.


Once monthly grading kicks in after the August list (fingers crossed, touch wood) error-correction will be a kind of rolling mush.  Of course, there may be no games to be monthly-graded!!
