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.
