Chairmanís Remarks at the beginning of our 59th Season

At our Pre Season Meeting on Monday 25th March, Match Secretary Eddy Watts reported that our League had 109 teams entered from 25 Clubs (one more than last year). The 2018 SUMMER LEAGUE will start immediately after Easter Monday on Tuesday April 23rd with Mens & Ladies matches, with Mixed starting on Monday 29th. There will be 5 Mixed divisions (36 teams), 6 Mens (41) and 4 Ladies (32). Defaulted matches (failure to field full teams) remain a problem but our system of allocating average scores to defaulted matches has worked quite well and will continue for 2019.

Divisional Champions for 2017 were:

Mixed 1 Devizes A Mens 1 Chippenham A Ladies 1 Devizes A
Mixed 2 Biddestone A Mens 2 Chippenham B Ladies 2 Lansdown A
Mixed 3 Chippenham B Mens 3 Frome B Ladies 3 Lansdown B
Mixed 4 Grittleton Mens 4 Urchfont A Ladies 4 Trowbridge C
Mixed 5 Marshfield Mens 5 Seend Ladies 5 Calne B
Mens 6 Iconoclasts B

The 2018 MIXED HANDICAP KNOCKOUT CUP & PLATE had 14 entries and took place in April, before the Summer League started, with the Finals on Sunday 24th June at Chippenham TC producing Cup Winners Devizes A and Plate winners Devizes B. The Cup Final was one of the closest for some years and went to the wire with Chippenham A failing to win several match points.The O50 MIXED KNOCKOUT CUP Final also took place on 24th June with Iconoclasts defeating Bath 7-1 (10 entries). The Draws have now been made for the 2019 knockout competitions (entries 10 & 8 respectively), and the Finals are scheduled for Sunday 23rd June at Chippenham.
