05/02/2019: New Venu of Liverpool Chess Club

It is with a heavy heart that Liverpool chess club will be leaving their current home "The Crown Pub" on Lime Street where they have been based for a few years now. Thank you to Manager Neil, Karen, Tom and all the staff at the Crown who have always treated us brilliantly. The Crown has been a fabulous venue but is now getting a refurbishment in February so will close temporarily and reopen as a much classier bar. So this Tuesday 29th January is our final week in the Crown and we will move to our new home also on the same block on Lime Street "The Vines Pub" (Nicknamed The Big House) next door to the Adelphi with effect from Tuesday 5th February.

The Vines Pub
81 Lime Street
Liverpool L1-1JQ

A new venture once again for our historic club! We look forward to seeing many of you there soon! Liverpool league matches will continue to be played on Tuesdays at 7.45pm at The Vines Junior chess will continue from 6pm to 7.30pm every Tuesday.

Any questions contact Jim Gallagher

Players 2018

The CLM 3 is ready for the new season!

All players have now been imported into the CLM 3.

At least on September 4th the ECF has published the "August" grading list. I immediately downloaded the list, imported all players into the CLM 3 and assigned the team captains to their teams. Sadly I did not have all the necessary information. If you experience any problems, please contact me. I will update the website e.g. the CLM 3 as soon as I get the missing or updated information.

All team captains are requested to submit the match results online. Additionally the can update the list of players of their team by themselves.

In the download section of this website you will find a HowTo for team captains.

Have a great season and support us by submitting all results using our website and the CLM 3.


@ Team Captains and Club Officials

All team captains and all club officials are invited to register on our MCA website. This is necessary for managing all teams, leagues, competitions and club details as easy and smoothly as possible.

Thank you for reistering yourself and for your understanding.
