The previous Winter League Presentation Night (April) were loaded but a bug prevented their viewing. They have now been reloaded for you to view.
Go to PHOTOs on the menu and take some memory lane trips while you’re there – we have 10 years worth and more in the History section !
If you have any old photos, programmes or clippings that you want to share get in touch with the Committee.
As usual the AGM will be on the last Monday of January which this year is the 28th starting at 8pm.
Those of you who were there last year know that long serving member Paul Stone will not be standing for re-election for the 2019 season.
I want to take this opportunity to inform you that I also will not be standing for Chairman either. I will continue to do some of the more mundane admin work but the Chairman should be more involved with the league than routine admin work. The league is in a good shape and sponsorship has been confirmed for the 2019 season by Dyno Plumbing and Heating.
The Competition Secretary is also standing down this year and will also need to be replaced. Please understand that they do need to be replaced. If you wish to continue playing Aunt Sally in this the 60th year then volunteers do need to be found. Understand that just assuming someone will volunteer is a sure way of ensuring that nobody will.
I hope that if you can spare the time you will contact a member of the Committee before the AGM to pledge support.
59th Presentation Night is Friday 30th November at Abingdon United FC 7.30 practice/entry, games start at 8pm
Entry by programme on the door at £2.50 each
Singles and Pairs Semi-Finals and Finals
Competition Trophy Presentations
League Section Winner/Runners-up Presentations
The venue was moved on Finals night as Ab.Utd were due a training match and with high winds/rain forecast it would have been too exposed by the football pitch having to play on the non-home pitch for Utd. The venue was the Spread Eagle and although a few sticks went sideways in the wind the rain mostly held off and the game was played.
Plum took Ab.Utd (league winners) to 3 legs but couldn’t match Utd’s 20 dolls despite the 2 handicap.
Presentation Night for all trophies/plaques for Section and Competition Winners will be on Friday 30th November at Ab.Utd FC. Programmes will be on sale soon at the winter league on Wednesday evenings at Ab.Utd.
- The conclusion to the handicapped 8s Knock-Out Competition will be held at
Abingdon United (2nd Pitch)Spread Eagle on Thursday 20th September. (THIS THURSDAY!)
