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.


18 June - Allstars DT definitely not playing next season, 18 teams confirmed so far for Wednesday and nine on Sunday. Just Black Horse to hear from so we can finalise divisions and start dates (early September probable for Sunday).


20 June - After our meeting on Wednesday we have ten Sunday teams and nineteen Wednesday teams. Full lists on relevant day pages. Details are being sorted but it is looking like Wednesday will start in early September with Sunday commencing late September/Early October. More news at the weekend.

Finals Night will be on Wednesday 10 July, 7.45pm at the Horse & Groom.


16 June - Allstars Z, Kings and Seven Stars confirmed for Wednesday with Bishop Blaize and Bowling Green added to Sunday.


14 June - No sign of any "missing" registrations yet although there are a couple of probable new teams. Will try chasing the stragglers again!


11 June - A couple of the outstanding Sunday games are not being played as they would not affect the tables in any way. Still awaiting news of what is happening in the other Sunday and Wednesday games.

The new result sheets and extra signing forms are now available for download (see Useful Forms).


10 June - Sunday Cup Final result now in, an emphatic win for Horse & Groom C.

Could everyone who has outstanding games (Sunday or Wednesday) please let us know when you intend to play them, if at all.

We have a committee meeting next week (19 June) during which we shall hopefully sort when and where Finals Night is.

A newsletter has been sent out to everyone on our mailing list which explains the recent rule changes and changes to the extra signing procedure amongst other things. Click on this sentence if you wish to download a copy.


9 June - Sunday Team Cup Final tonight. Result online when received.

There are several outstanding postponed games in both Sunday divisions, however, the outcome of these games can only affect the final position of the bottom two teams in Division Two. No other teams will change places regardless of any results. Outstanding Wednesday games will only affect who finishes second in Division One.

We are still stuck on seven teams for Sunday which will probably mean only one division. It will definitely be a shorter Sunday season this coming winter, exactly how short will depend on how many more teams we can attract.

Wednesday is looking fairly healthy. We shall see exactly how many we have in the next week.


6 June - Many thanks to all who attended the AGM yesterday and registered their teams for next winter. We presently have 13 Wednesday teams and 7 Sunday ones. We have a meeting on June 19 during which divisions will be sorted, so you have until then to get your forms in. A list of teams registered for each day is on the relevant pages.

Full details of rule changes, etc, will be sent to each team soon. Briefly, all results now electronic, no postponements unless exceptional circumstances, no Mixed Pairs competion and a new Team Plate comp for those knocked out of the first round of the Team Cup. Rules page will be updated as soon as possible.
