Summer League: Week 4 Results

No change in the Over 14s this week and sixers are in the lower sections! 

CAPTAINS – if you are cancelling a match please ensure you contact the other Captain direct (you have their details as registered). PLEASE ensure you make it clear which team is which – we had a team not turn up this week because they didn’t specify the A or B team and the wrong team cancelled.

SECRETARIES – I have a new player registration form with NO TEAM NAME on it. I know some say I’m gifted but I’m not in mindreading. No-one has been in touch over the last fortnight or so to confirm Tuckey, Grover, Purcell and Cooper as players so thank you for your donation to the League! If you recognise these please email or IM on fb and we’ll say no more about it.

Sixers: Bob Glen (SITV FC), Stephen J Fisher (Royal Oak Didcot).

Summer League: Week 3 Results

This week there was a cancelled game F Section Plough W.Hanney cancelled their White Horse B game giving White Horse B 6 points and in E section Wheatsheaf Drayton postponed their match against Boundary House A – NOTE all postponed matches have to be played before the next Wed match and notified to the League. If this match doesn’t go ahead Boundary House A will take 6 points as if a cancelled match.

REMINDER – all cancelled/postponed matches have to be notified to the League. The best way to do this is login to the website and use the new Team Support function just below the ‘Submit Match Card’ on the top menu. 

Over 14s – Both Leigh Clapton and Dave Dix from Ab.Utd.B matched scores of 4-6-5 for a great 15 each this week. Mick Phillips (Spread Eagle) cracked a 5-5-4. Good to see Tony Barrett (Ab.Con.Club A) back playing and on form with his first 6 of the season.

Summer League: Week 2 Results

Well done everyone for getting their cards online by Friday – it makes our job so much easier if we don’t have to chase. We are still getting some postal cards late so please do your best.

We’ve had a couple of players who have not been registered beforehand therefore – these scores have been removed. YOU MUST REGISTER PLAYERS before a match with £3 per player using the form on the homepage. We do our best but you need to fill in the form and submit the right fees ! Thank you for playing by the rules and helping us to help you.

Summer League : Week 1 Results

Abingdon & District Aunt Sally League sponsored by Dyno Plumbing & Heating – Week 1
So far we’ve had a touchy start to the league with only 22 out of 30 cards being delivered by Saturday post and a few teams not entering online (just posting) before Saturdays deadline (Friday for online). You will see from the league tables that there are three games completely missing. One is AWOL (disappointingly in the Premier/A), one is a postponed/missed match and one has had difficulty getting online which we are trying to help with.
The Committee has therefore decided in this case, being the start of the season, that the Tandem and Abingdon Con Club will NOT lose their match points this time. However, any further rule breaches will be dealt with according to the rules. ALL TEAMS TAKE NOTE PLEASE.
Bear in mind that at the AGM it was passed that BOTH sides check their entries online and ENTER THE CARD ONLINE if necessary if it has not been done by the Winning side (or home side if drawn) by Friday. IT IS THEREFORE IMPORTANT that both sides take a photo of the card (readable!) so that you can enter online if necessary and if there is a dispute we can sort it out quickly. Ideally we would remove the need to post a card but this would rely on everyone taking responsibility and a photo and entering scores properly and on time. (It would also need a vote at the AGM). The reason we ask for all the scores in is that we have to pass the results onto the newspapers on Sunday for publication on Monday. Plus we play in a league because it’s a competition. Otherwise it’s just practice.
So help us to help you by following the agreed rules of the League. Thank You. – Paul Stone, Secretary & Aunt Sally Committee

First week and we have our first Over 14 ! Dave Dix (Ab Utd A) managed a 5-5-4 in his first week. Marvellous!

Premier/A – Abingdon United B 2 – Steventon Sports A 4; Spread Eagle B 6 – Plum Pudding 0; College Oak A 6 – Hart Harwell A 0; Plum Pudding B 0 – Spread Eagle 6;

Captains/Secretaries – POINTS TO NOTE THIS YEAR

  1. Get your cards online asap. Whether you won or lost – see new rules. 
  2. Both sides take a photo of your completed card. Note that the idea of the card is for players/Captains to verify by signature that the scores are correct after the game.
  3. Put the Match ID on the scorecard which is given on screen when entered online, take a snap and post the card (with a stamp).
  4. If you lost/drew – check the match scores online with your photo and send an email in with ciorrection details (and your card photo for proof).
  5. If you have to Cancel a match do it 24 hours before so your host doesn’t waste food. It’s only polite.
  6. Enjoy your games!

You know it’s good when you hear the wood !
