AGM

Printing the blank Fixtures sheet is strongly recommended, even in these days of virtual meetings.

Contact details for all teams can be found from the League or Knockout pages (click on team).

Knockout

The first round of the Leslie Dodds Cup has a strict – but generous – deadline of the 5th November, eight weeks from the Friday after the AGM.

Winners in round one play in the Leslie Dodds Cup, losers in the Gainsborough Plate. Both events are drawn at the completion of the initial round.

League

With 30 teams, down one from last year, we return to a league of five divisions. This has been easier to achieve than increasing the quota (as last year) and all those who expected promotion have been promoted but some who were resigned to relegation have been spared. Coolhurst have, effectively divided, the name resides with the captain but with the fewer ex-members the 'new' team Nuthurst inherits the position, relegated to Div. 4.

This is a schematic view of the changes.
