Welcome to the Stafford Chess Club LMS home page

In 2023-2024 we are competing in:
Wolverhampton League Division 2
North Staffs League Division 2 & Intermediate Cup
Cannock League Divisions 2, 3 & 4.

The Simon Cup is our primary Club Standard Play annual tournament - this year it is being played without any handicap over 5 rounds of Swiss with the top 2 players contesting the Final. In addition, we will be holding the inaugural Andrew Leadbetter Memorial Trophy for players rated below 1500 ECF to run alongside the Simon Cup.

We also play a variety of one off events across the season on Friday evenings when we have no league matches scheduled. All results will be shown in the Events section.
