You will be sad to know that Chris Kinloch died on 7th July. For many years Chris played regularly in Gloucestershire; he was a respected member of the county team and a good friend to many of us. We send our condolences to his wife Helen and her family. The funeral will be held at 2pm on 28th July at Andover Crematorium.

The Midlands County League is a team-of eight Championship with one match against each of the other counties per season. There are three divisions - for the first, second and third teams of each county - playing for the Dawes, Porter and Markham trophies respectively.
The season runs from September to March with one match per month and a break across the summer. Matches are of 32 boards on Sundays at 14.00. Our selection committee is chaired by Richard Butland and players interested in participating should contact him.
2016-17 was our best for many years, with GCBA winning the Markham Trophy for 'C' teams and coming 2nd in the Dawes league. The 'C' team then came 1st= in the inter-league playoffs, losing the trophy on a split tie.
In 2018-19 the GCBA came second in all 3 divisions.
We track player's availability for coming matches using a DOODLE poll. The latest poll for MCL is at <tbc>
