2021-2022 County Matches


Yorkshire county team captains, Peter Ackley (Open), Dave Patrick (U-2050), Rupert Jones U-1850) and David Mills (U-1650 and U-1450) are currently arranging matches in Northern CCU (over-the-board) competitions for which the entries are as follows:






















In the fulness of time, details should appear on ECF LMS at https://ecflms.org.uk/lms/node/88432/home.


David Mills is looking for players for the Under-1450 and Under-1650 Yorkshire teams, and has asked that the following be posted on this website:

I am again captaining two Yorkshire County teams which initially participate in the Northern Counties Chess Union competitions and, hopefully, in the knockout matches organised by the English Chess Federation.


The under 1450 grade team will face Lancashire and the under 1650 grade team will face Lancashire and Cumbria.  Likely venues for the matches (but still to be confirmed) are as follows:-


Under 1450 grade match, Yorkshire v Lancashire. Holmfirth.


Under 1650 grade match, Yorkshire v Cumbria. Barnard Castle.


Under 1650 grade match, Lancashire v Yorkshire. Bury.


These fixtures should be completed on weekends before the end of March 2022 and may involve Sunday play.


In view of the time that has elapsed since these fixtures were last contested,

I am requesting details of players who are interested in being considered for selection.


Even if they are already known to me, they should notify me again to update the information that I hold. The relevant E.C.F. grade is that quoted at August 2021. For those interested, I require the following information:-


Full name.

Age (if under 18).


Telephone number (home).

Telephone number (work).

Telephone number (mobile).

e-mail address (personal).

e-mail address (work).


E.C.F. grade at August 2021 (I’ll check this myself against that quoted by the player to avoid any disputes.)


E.C.F. grade reference number.


Does the player have transport and is that person willing to offer lifts to others?


If the player has transport and is willing to offer lifts to others, how many passengers can he/she take?


If the player does not have transport, I will try to put him/her in touch with a driver.


Please note that a board fee may be payable to cover the cost of renting the venue and/or refreshments.


Passengers to arrange with drivers a contribution towards the cost of fuel.


Parents may be willing or choose to provide transport for their own children and possibly others.


Those interested in selection should contact me urgently via e-mail or telephone.


Best wishes,


David G. Mills
