The player shortage rule is very clear as stated in the Rules & Bylaws. However so there is no misunderstanding, for example, if you are 2 players short in the lowest team in your club, then 2 players can play twice. You MUST place 8 cards on the table for the opposition captain to draw 2 out to play again. ( In the evening you can take 2 cards out of the draw and the vets 1 card out of the draw, if you have players that cannot play twice). If a player is drawn out and does not wish to play again then you forfit that game 21- 0. The player must still be named on the match sheet.  If this process is not followed and the team with players short gains an unfair advantage, then the committee will apply penalty's in the form of deducting points.

Unfortunatly The Navigation have resigned from the evening league and the vets league. This means the teams in division C (evening) will have a free week when they were due to play the Navigation. This also means that The Grange have a bye in the Keith Deighton Shield. The teams in division D (veterans) will also have a free week when they were due to play the Navigation.

Please Note, those clubs that still use Royal Mail to send in their result sheets, you must use the new stamps with the bar code (other stamps are not valid) If you use the old stamps I have to pay £2.50 to get it from the post office. That charge will be passed on to you.
