Division 1 fixtures - 24 August

The Division 1 fixtures on the printed fixture cards for 24 August are wrong (they are the ones that applied in 2020 and never played).

The web site shows the correct fixtures.

Player registrations

In 2021 we relaxed rules about registering players to help struggling clubs. For 2022 we will revert to following the league rules:

  • Players to be registered seven days before playing
  • Final date for registrations is 21 July

AGM

Some significant decisions were taken at the AGM on 24 November 2021:

  • The team size remains at ten.
  • The temporary rule for 2021 allowing two players to play again has lapsed. We now revert to the rule as it was in 2019 (but applying in both divisions): one player (the one in the first four with the worst score) may play again. Teams can only do this ten times in a season.
  • Entrants to the Merit and Joe Rigby pairs must have played in three league matches.

Direct entry of match results

For the 2014 season we are trying out a new system where team captains can enter match results directly on the web site. This will produce instant updates of the league tables.

See the user guide for full details.

Archives

The 2012 to 2014 seasons have now been copied to the archives. There is a link at the top of every page to take you there.

In the archives you can search for records of leagues, teams and players, across all the leagues on this site.

The 2011 season is now included as well, although we don't have detailed match scores.
