Chairmanís Remarks at the end of our 57th Season

Our popular and hardworking Match Secretary reported another successful year at the End of Season Meeting of Club Representatives on Monday 4th September 2017 at Seend Community Centre – the good flow of timely scorecards enabling regular updates of results each week.

The 2017 SUMMER LEAGUE started on April 24th (Mixed) and 26th (Mens/Ladies) with a total of 110 teams from 26 Clubs. This produced 4 Mixed divisions (31), 6 Mens (44) and 5 Ladies (35) - most divisions with 7 teams and therefore 12 matches (6H/6A) which eases the fixture schedule, but in spite of this the number of defaulted matches (failure to field full teams) increased. Our new system of allocating average scores to defaulted matches has worked quite well but this may still need fine-tuning for 2018.

Divisional Champions for 2017 are :
Mixed 1 Devizes A                         Mens 1 Frome A                      Ladies 1 Civil Service (Bath)
Mixed 2 Chippenham A                 Mens 2 Iconoclasts (Bath)       Ladies 2 Trowbridge A
Mixed 3 Devizes C                        Mens 3 Civil Service A             Ladies 3 Chippenham A
Mixed 4 Marshfield                        Mens 4 Chippenham D            Ladies 4 Marshfield B
                                                      Mens 5 Melksham                    Ladies 5 Melksham                    
                                                      Mens 6 Seend 

The 2017 MIXED HANDICAP KNOCKOUT CUP & PLATE had 11 entries and took place in March/April, before the Summer League started, with the Finals on a hot Sunday 18th June at Chippenham TC producing Cup Winners Frome A and Plate winners Marshfield. The O50 MIXED KNOCKOUT CUP also took place with Chippenham defeating Iconoclasts 6-2 .
