2021-2 league season starts with tribute to Nick Harris

28 Oct. Redditch may have to use a temporary venue while the Alvechurch Sports & Social Club is refurbished.

30 Sep. At Worcester’s EGM it was agreed to invite Droitwich players to contribute to its league teams and that Worcester’s Division 2 team would be called "Worcester & Droitwich", captained by Ray Collett and normally playing its home matches at Worcester.

22 Sep. League teams square up. Division 1 comprises five teams: Halesowen, Kidderminster, Longbridge, Malvern, Redditch and Worcester City. Division 2 has 5 teams: Kidderminster, Longbridge, Redditch, Stourbridge and Worcester City.

16 Sep. The league’s Inaugural League match in memory of Nick Harris featured teams led by captains from City and Stourbridge, the two clubs Nick has played with in recent seasons. The visiting team, Stourbridge All Stars, beat Worcester All Stars 3-2.

14 Sep. Temporary joint league formed. General meetings of Worcestershire CA and Worcester & District Chess League agreed to form a temporary joint league for the 2021-2 season because many players are reluctant to travel to matches while the Covid-19 epidemic still raging. The officials of the temporary joint league are Paul Sharratt (General secretary, grading officer, safeguarding lead). A panel for resolving disputes was appointed: Secretary W&DCL, Andrew Farthing; President WCA, Ray Collett; Brian Turner and Stephen Woodhouse.
