Urgent News on Div 3 Extra KO

posted Sep 19, 2013, 12:24 AM by Malcolm Fletcher
REF: Division 3 Extra competition, starting Friday, 20 September - the eight-a-side knockout 

It has been brought to my attention that some teams are finding it impossible to name eight players that have played half the games in that division this season - as I had suggested when organising this event.

So please, as this is only a 'fill in' event to get division 3 sides through to the end of the Friday night season, let's not get bogged down by so-called rules. They were NOT produced as hard and fast rules - just guidelines!

The only condition I want to stress is that bowlers selected to play in the Extra KO MUST have played in Division 3 this year.

I hope that makes the situation clear for all the 12 clubs involved. I am determined we are not going to have any 'he or she shouldn't have played' arguments - I want clubs and teams to treat this event as an extra . . . TO BE ENJOYED!!!

There are no match fees (just a donation to the host club please) and no prize money to be won - maybe a small trophy. So let's all treat this event in the way it was intended.

AND FINALLY, the teams for Saturday's Dave Ellis Charity Challenge match against the Tanners Shropshire League will be posted - in playing order and with confirmed reserves - on this site tonight. The div 1-2-3 12-a-side leg is at Shifnal while MId Shropshire's div 4-5-6 representative team goes to Telepost. Both are 6.30pm starts - bowlers selected to wear their club tops as part of dress code rules.
