18 September - As I am unable to get to the Clifton to see if there are any "missing signature" forms or extra signings I haven't been notified about, I will take all names listed in the team lists as 'cleared to play'. All extras I have been notified about are listed.
Results now coming in, updates until 11pm.
16 September - Was informed today that only one St Anne's Well team have moved to the Half Moon (division 1 team). The other team (division 2) is staying put at the St Anne's Well. Hopefully there will be no further changes to the fixtures!
15 September - Our Competitions Secretary has surpassed himself and produced the Wednesday Team Cup first round draw for 23 October. It is up on the Wednesday and Competition fixtures pages. We will remind everyone a bit nearer the date as well.
12 September - Result received for all four Prelim matches, three from winning teams and one from a losing side with three to the correct email address. Not so important for Cup results but must be correct for the league. You will be warned once!
11 September - New season has commenced. Only one result in from the Prelims so far, results updated online.
10 September - One day to go until the new season! Hopefully everyone received their emails with the Cup prelim draw so know if they are playing or not. All info has been online for two or three weeks anyway
Website is behaving better now after a few tweaks. Still working on the New Registration page though, so please email me if there are any new signings. A reminder that any "missing signature" forms are due back before the start of games, not seen any so far.
Team contact email list has been updated and all addresses should now be working.
5 September - Counting down to the new season now. Wednesday Team Cup Prelims next week (11 September). Fixtures are on the fixtures and competitions pages.
Team lists are now accessible via the contacts pages or the relevant day's pages. The online "New Registration notification" form will go up when I can get it to work! Hopefully this will not be too long.
20 August - Owing to the St Annes Well licencees moving to the Half Moon at Whipton, the pool teams have followed suit and will now be known as the Half Moon A and B teams. The Wednesday Fixtures Key download has been updated to reflect this. The online fixtures have been updated as well.
Wednesday and Sunday Team Cup prelim draws now online.
7 August - Despite a lot of testing, the website is not working quite as expected. Phone, Tablet, desktop and even different browsers are doing totally different things, not what was supposed to happen. The basics are working in most cases so we will stick with it for the present and try and coerce it into working as anticipated.
6 August - A slightly different website look for the new season. Everything is where it was apart from the team details which are now accessible from the relevant day as well as from the Contacts pages.
The info/fixture packs are being distributed this week. Hopefully every venue should receive them by the weekend.
25 July - Another update, this time to the fixture Key pages. New Pdf downloads available on this page.
24 July - Corrected Sunday fixtures now on the downloads. Should have been 22 & 29 Dec off, not 29 Dec & 5 Jan.
23 July - Fixtures for the season now pretty well finalised and available to download on this page. Each day is split into two pages like last season so both will need downloading for any particular day. Competitions are hinted at in the fixtures. Competitions on Wednesday will run after the Team Cup Final, precise dates will depend on entries. Sunday competitions will also be advised later if we go ahead with them.
An info pack will be delivered to each team sometime soon containing fixtures, missing signature forms if applicable, extra signing forms, rule and procedure changes, the last of the cards and receipts if they are still outstanding.
If you still have outstanding forms or money to give me, I will be chasing you up soon.
22 July - Following feedback from the last news below, we have decided to drop back to the ideas from earlier this month. Sunday league will be one round of fixtures from 13 October to 22 March. Wednesday league will be two divisions running from probably 11 September until 11 March.
To fill the gap until the Summer, Wednesday will then have competitions rounds every week through to sometime in June, dependent on entries. Sunday could have something similar as there is a proposal to separate the Individuals and Pairs into Sunday and Wednesday competitions. You would have to be registered for a Sunday team to enter the Sunday competitions, with a similar restriction applying to Wednesdays. The Captains Cup will remain open to both days but be played on Wednesdays.
Fixtures will appear online and be sent out once we have agreed them, hopefully this week.
19 July -
All change again. Having presented fixtures for the coming season to the Committee, they have decided that the approximately six months both sessions would have lasted was too short. Therefore we are going for a single Wednesday division of twenty teams, with the Sunday teams playing a double fixture set. All games will commence at the start of September, through until June/July next year. Individuals, Pairs and Captains competitions will all be held on Tuesdays.
7 July - Fixtures are moving towards completion. It is looking like Wednesday will start with the Cup prelims on 2 October and the Sunday Cup prelims will be 13 October. Sunday Cup Final will be 22 March with the Wednesday Final on 25 March. The Wednesday dates could move slightly depending on what we do with the competitions.
We are toying with the idea of using the lack of games in April, May and June to possibly have all the rounds of the competitions then, with all rounds being played on a Wednesday. The Wednesday league start date may be brought forward then to ensure we can fit all the rounds in. We should hopefully have made a decision on this soon.
Don't forget the Finals Night, Wednesday 10 July at the Horse & Groom.
1 July - Over the last ten days we have gained one more Wednesday team, getting rid of any Bye. After a lot of trying to fill out the available time with a single 20 team Wednesday division, we decided that ten months of games may be a bit too much, running from end August until mid July. Therefore there will probably be two Wednesday divisions running from late September until late March with Sunday a single division running from October until late March. Further details to follow when finalised.
