POSTPONED FIXTURES
Just a little reminder to ALL teams that every attempt to fulfil fixtures on the scheduled date should be made. Matches should not be postponed just because the 'best' player is unavailable. Technically, as per rule 3, as long as a side has four players available then the match should take place. However, we try to run things in a friendly manner, and understand that fixtures might need to be postponed, especially during this holiday time of year. The last thing we want to do is have to award matches due to an agreement over a new date not being reached. Any new dates are at the convenience of the non-offending side. All matches should be completed by the final Thursday of the scheduled league format, which is THURSDAY 1ST SEPT. We might allow or request matches are played after this date, but that will be down to the committee's discretion. Below is a list which I have of fixtures which need to be rearranged. Can the non-offending captains please make contact with the offending captains to try and get a new date arranged please. The fixtures are:

 

Week 1: Masons Arms B v Stonesfield SSC B

Week 15: Stonesfield SSC A v Stonesfield SSC B

Week 16: Masons Arms B v Stonesfield SSC A

Week 16: Stonesfield SSC B v Middle Barton SSC B

Week 17: Middle Barton B v Masons Arms B

 

Lets try and get this all sorted without complication please teams

Thanks

 

NEW RECORD & NEW WORLD CHAMPION

It's been quite a week for a certain individual within our league.

Step up Mr Rob Bradford, who not only set a new Wychwood record last week with 28 dolls (6,6,5,6,5), he then made the trip to the Aunt Sally World Championship at Charlbury beer festival and came away as the new champ!

Unbelievable Jeff!

The Wychwood record was on his home throw at Enstone, which just the night before Rob claimed he hated throwing on!

This beat the previous record, which was 26 dolls (6,5,6,3,6), and was hit by Paul Bennett from the Masons Arms 'A' back in 2014.

On Saturday, Rob breezed his way through to the final held in tricky conditions due to the gusty wind, where he faced previous winner Phil Adams. Phil took the opening leg 3-2, but Rob hit back to chase down Phil's set of 3 in the second leg to level the match. In the cruical decider, Phil again set 3, and with a large crowd watching on, Rob clanged off the 4 required with two sticks in hand.

I am in possession of a fantastic picture taken just after the winning doll was hit, but I think Rob is intending on using the picture as his entry to this years Gurning World Championship so I'll keep it safe for now.

Well done Rob, thats a superhuman effort.

 

CUP PRELIMINARY MATCHES

 

Just to remind you all, the cut off date for the Prelim round of cup matches has nearly arrived. The date for these matches is SUNDAY 10TH JULY.

The Prelim matches are as follows:

 

Eynsham SSC v Black Prince 'A'

Chadlington SSC v Charbury SSC

Cinnamon Stick v Oxford Yeoman

Swan v Middle Barton SSC 'B'


You were all made aware of the draw at the start of the season, and advised that you can rearrange the fixture should you want to, providing that they are played no later than the 10th July. I've not heard anything, so I'm presuming the games will be played on the Sunday. 

 

Please keep looking at my hard work!

The new info appears to be working, but let know if I've missed anything.

Individual Team Scores, All Players Dolls Scored, Dolls By Section & League Table pages only get updated when the hard copies of the cards are on my desk next to me!

DUE TO THE SLIGHT FAUX PAS WITH THE SCORECARDS AS EXPLAINED IN MY RECENT EMAIL, IF SENDING BY POST, PLEASE SEND TO:

THE ACTION RETURNS!

 

We are up and running!

 

Hi all.
So here we go, finally!
It's been a couple of years in waiting, but this is the week that the Wychwood League is all systems go again.
 
I just wanted to send out one final reminder regarding a couple of points, as the process has changed slightly this year.
 
If someone, and it really doesn't matter who, can send me a picture of the card at the end of the match that would be fantastic. Either send a picture to my phone, or scan it in and email to the league email address.
 
I then need the hard copy of the card delivered to me please. You can stick a stamp on it, or hand deliver it to me. If hand delivering, please drop it to my home address, as I don't get the chance to get down the Prince very often these days. It's always worth checking with your opponents, as someone might be driving through Woodstock and they could possibly save you the trip. Get the card to me as soon as possible please.
 
As for eligible players, please make sure you pay attention to who you have signed on! Everything is on the website so there are no excuses. New signings are allowed, but you must let me know before the match begins. 16 is the maximum number of players you can sign on, so I suggest that you don't just sign someone on for just one week. Scoreboards and cards should read from top to bottom, so keep that in mind when making changes between legs. For example, if your lead man is dropped then the second person on the board would go first in that leg and so on. If you are unsure, just drop me a message and I can send over an example of a scorecard.
 
Matches will get postponed! It's unavoidable. But I do request that you try and stick to the schedule. For example, If you have 10 or more players signed on, I would argue that you should be able to field a side even if it's not your strongest team. If matches do get postponed, then they must be played within a month of the original scheduled date, as per rule 3. Speak with the other captain involved, agree a date and then let me know. A postponement should be the last resort, but if it does happen, I just ask you to speak with each other and resolve it. Just keep me posted please.
 
Everyone will be rusty, so please remember this when debating a 'suspect' call! It's a game, and people make mistakes. But as captains, please try to organise experienced personnel to carry out the calling duties. Let's keep everything nice and friendly and enjoy the night out. 
In the Welcome Packs that you will be in possession of now, there is the competition entry form. All competitions are free to enter this year, but I still need the forms to be submitted. Try and get these to as soon as possible so that we have an idea on the number of players taking part.
 
I do really enjoy my role with the league, producing all the stats and info for you all to read. But alas, it is not my primary job. Due to my other job, I don't even get to play much anymore. With this in mind, I just ask you all to assist me by adhering to the rules, and to get the results to me promptly as outlined above. I really don't like chasing people, and to be honest I shouldn't have to. 
 
Finally, I and the rest of the committee would like to wish you all the very best for the season ahead. It's been a long time coming, and I can't wait to get started. Have fun all, and let's see some good scoring.
 
Cheers all

And so it begins!!!!

 

It gives me great pleasure to say that the Entry Form for the 2022 season is now out and available to be filled in. Not only is the form being distributed by hand, but I have sent it out via email to the contacts that I already have. It's also available to download and print above, so no excuses, get to work on it now!

 

Following on from our AGM meeting, we have decided to continue with the 6-a-side format, which has proven so successful over the last few seasons. Hopefully we will have around 20 teams enter, which will allow us to run a full league format, with cups matches fitted in as well.

The entry fee for the league has been frozen, so will again be £50. However, as a token of goodwill, we have decided that entry into all of our compitions this year will be free. So for your £50, you get a full league format, team cup matches, singles, pairs, triples & fours. We will deal with the competitions in due course, but I just wanted to let you know what the plans are.

 

We have plenty of work to do, and we will require your help to get the league up and running again. It feels strange talking about Aunt Sally whilst the temperatures outside are hovering around zero, but now is the time when we need you to start talking to your teammates to sound out their interest levels so that you can get your squad lists together.

We need to be honest - there are going to be some players who will have no intentions to play again, so teams might have lost some players and squads might need to change. However, with the return of the Oxford Speedway on Wednesday nights, there is also the possibility that some players are going to not play on a Wednesday and go to the Speedway, so they could be interested in playing on a Thursday. It's up to you to ask around and see if you can make some new signings.

There has already been substantial work done on this website, and there will be more information for your viewing pleasure during the season.

At this stage, all we ask is that you try and get things moving and start to get your teams together. If you already know that you WON'T be entering a team, please just drop me a quick email to inform me so that I don't keep pestering you. If you are part of a potential new team and would like some more information about our league, then please feel free to drop me a message and I'll happily have a chat with you. Don't forget the new email address, which you can see at the top of this home page.

 

Thanks, and welcome back all.

NEW SIGNINGS ETC...

With the season now finally arriving, I'll just put out a polite reminder regarding new signings. Let it be known, we are very flexible regarding this (unlike some other leagues!), but there is still a process that must be adhered to! If you wish to register any new players, I MUST be notified at least 24 hours before they can play. A simple text or call will do. If I received result cards that have non-registered players on it then there is a strong chance that the match will be awarded 10-0 to the non-offending team. Each teams list of registered players can be found in '2019 Individual Scores' tabs at the top of the homepage. There are no excuses, and the committee have decided to be strict with this rule this season. 

The other thing to mention is my favourite subject...........RESULT CARDS!!

Play the match, sign the card, take a picture on your phone and send it straight to me! Simple!

Despite everyone knowing this, I still had to spend far too much time chasing late cards last season. The results will be sent into the Oxford Mail, put onto the website and tables updated every Sunday evening, so I need the cards in by then. I make no apologies, or do I enjoy, moaning about late cards and it is up to the team captains to make sure they are sent in promptly. Help me out please teams!

Finally, the committee and I would like to thank you all for signing up to play in our league yet again and we would like to wish each and every one of you good luck. We think we have a great league, and we hope you agree and enjoy it. Let's see what the 2019 season has in store for us...

CANCELLED & POSTPONED FIXTURES

Just to clarify the process, if you need to postpone a match, you must:

1.Inform the captain or venue of your opponents, ideally at least 24 hours before the match is due to take place

2.Inform the Fixture Secretary

 

The postponed match should be replayed within 1 month of the original fixture date. Don't forget, you can bring fixtures forwards if required. For example, if you know that half your team is going on holiday at the same time, why not play the fixture before they go?

 

All contact information for each team can be found on this website

  

Winning captains, don't forget to send the cards in ASAP!

I can't get the website updated and results in the press unless I have the scorecards sent in!

 

 New players can still be registered, but beware, this could change your handicap!

 

 Don't forget, all result scorecards need to be sent to:

 WYCHWOODAUNTSALLY@OUTLOOK.COM

 or text a picture of the scorecard to 07817 765678

 or pop them in the post

 Good luck and enjoy!

 Many thanks
