The July 2014 ECF Grading List has been published. The grades for active Colchester players are:
There are also a number of other Colchester players - like Javier Ruano Marco, Aleksandr Orava, Mohammud Jaufarally, Rob Smith, Jake Stones and Luke Tatchell - who have played some graded games in the last season (but not enough to have a grade yet).
Several players appear on the list for the first time: Eldar Lachinov, Nadia Jaufarally, Shazia Jaufarally and Alex Welge.
A number of players have increased their grades - with Mark Johnson (+20) and Ian Gooding (+9) both improving their grade by a large margin. Ian scored 4/6 in NECL matches this year and 6.5/9 in the 4NCL (Four Nations Chess League) where he plays for Cambridge University. Below is a minature won by Ian in the 4NCL earlier this year.
