Posted by ian on September 30, 2019 at 8:35 AM Comments comments (0)

Manchester League Fixtures 2019-20 version 3.2 (thanks again to Mick Norris). can be found on the download page of the website. https://www.manchesterchess.com/downloads

Some Wahltuch Trophy fixtures have been added.

Heywood CC will not after all have two teams in C division. In consequence,

1. Heywood 4’s fixtures have been expunged from C Division.

2. Heywood 5 has been renamed as Heywood 4

3. Heywood 6 has been renamed as Heywood 5

The MCF Results website will be updated accordingly as soon as possible.

It is to be hoped that there will be no further substantial changes.

Any individual fixture changes made subsequently will be notified by email to the teams concerned and via the Results website.

Please remember that if you want to change a fixture, you should submit a request and justification to the Fixtures Secretary, rather than try to make a private arrangement.
