Please go to Chessnuts to view the fixtures and results for all our competitions. 

The site has a full record of all LCA matches since 2005-2006. 

Many thanks are due to Jon Griffith who designed the Chessnuts  site and the grading mechanism which works so well that we can tend to take it for granted.  Note that Jon has announced that he intends to retire from running Chessnuts at the end of thsi season. He's looking for someone to take it on - they will need programming skills as well as time and commitment.  Please ask aroundi in your clubs to see if anyone is interested.
