Latest News . . .
You may have noticed the complete lack of updates on this site for a couple of months now! My PC is still running on Windows XP and more and more websites are failing to load due to SSL or cipher or some other issue. This Wix site was one of them - it just wouldn't load the info from the website into the Wix editor to update it!
It's working now, so some major updates until it fails again!
As you are all probably aware, there is something "going around" at the moment which is not far from bringing virtually everything to a complete standstill. This, of course, means that all chess events for the foreseeable future are either cancelled or suspended, including the Shropshire leagues, cups and individuals!
So watch this space (if I can get the updates to work!) for further developments!
Please make sure you have renewed your ECF membership, otherwise our club will get charged for game fees at the end of the season!
Simply clicking on the link on the right of this page will take you directly to the login page of the "Go Membership" portal.
