NCCU Senior Final

Prescot & Knotty Ash are the new Seniors Champions!

The final was held on 30th June at the Bradford Latvian Club.
It proved a close match, but in the end a victory for the Prescot & Knotty Ash Club, who beat holders, South Shields, by 2½-1½. The Merseyside Club were outgraded on every board but in the end youth triumphed over age and experience – South Shields were on average 10 years older than their opponents.

New Developments of your MCA Web Project

With the end of the season 2017/2018 I took the chance to merge both our websites. The reason we had two websites was that the old Chess League Manager, Version 1, was not compatible with Joomla 3.x but only with Joomla 1.5. Now we use the up-to-date Chess League Manager CLM 3 and there is no reason any longer to keep both websites.

There are even more changes because of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR): our website uses cookies and you may or may not accept them. If you reject cookies you may not be able to use all features of our website. The presentation of all clubs playing in our leagues and competitions has also changed and, I hope, improved.

Every member of one of our clubs is welcome to register on this website and send an e-mail to the webmaster: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. The webmaster, i.e. me, will give you additional rights for this website.

As a member of one of our clubs you can get your own MCA-e-mail-account: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Simply send an e-mail with your complete name or position to me requesting your MCA-e-mail-account. You will get it as soon as possible.

The MCA offers newsletters for different groups. Register for our newsletters to keep yourself up-to-date.

There will be more changes and I will keep you informed here.
