Competitions: Founder Members

It was a cold night on the 2nd June at Steventon Sports that 10 hardy over 55 players turned up to battle it out for the Founder Members trophy 2016.

K.Fisher, B.Duff, B Moody, B.Adams, G.Brind, A.Humphries, A.Wood, D.Coles, M.Crook, B.Parker all turned out on a cold evening – thank you.

A couple of preliminary games and we had 8 players to get down to the finalists with both the finalists coming from those preliminary games.

All-in-all we had some tense games going to 3 and 1 stick in some drawn legs.

In the end Bob Duff (Ab Utd) and Brian ‘Laddie’ Moody (Steventon Sports) were victorious in securing their places in the final which will be played on Finals Night 14th Sept at Ab. Utd FC.

Summer 2016 – Week 3 Results

If you’re playing your Landlord/lady as a stand in player (rule 34) please mark the name ‘LL’ on the card and contact us to get them added BEFORE you submit your online scorecard. Thanks!

To help us keep the league tables together and ensure comprehensive scores are given to the newspapers please ensure you enter your scorecard online by Saturday AND get your paper scorecard posted to arrive by Saturday.

The following teams have failed to do both or either of these in the first three weeks:-

Week 1   Waggon and Horses C v Waggon Horses A

Week 2   Black Horse B V George and Dragon

Week 3   Steventon Sports v Berinsfield SC A, Bowyers Arms v The Grapes, Berinsfield SC C v Black Horse B

Winning Captains or Home Captains in a draw are responsible to ensure the scorecard is entered online and to be received by the Dolly Recorder on Saturday following a match. If captains want to delegate that to a competent member of the team that is no problem – we want the scores online and cards in by Saturday.

PLEASE STOP USING OLD SCORE CARDS with old addresses on – the new cards have the Steventon address – if desperate print your own.

Summer League 2016 – it all starts on Star Wars Day!

May4th.jpgFor those of you who don’t know the Summer League is starting on the 4th May (May the Fourth be with you!) – I know, but you won’t forget it now will you!

We’re putting the finishing touches to the competition and fixture lists and they’ll be going to the printers very soon then we distribute them by hand to the venues.

We have 61 teams registered this year and that means a full Premier/A and F section (10 teams), sections B,C,D, E have one bye and section G is made up of 5 teams twice over so they get plenty of Aunt Sally! We did it this way rather than confuse things with an 11 team fixture with a longer season.

We’ve also got a new sponsor this year in Matthew Tutty Plumbing & Heating so many thanks for supporting us this season Matthew!
