Wow! What A Start . . .

Just 24 hours after the start of the 2013 season for teams in divisions 1-2-3, all but one of the results from the opening night are now shown on the new results system that is the brainchild of MIke Beckett and which is embedded in this website.
Newport C at home to Allscott B is the only score missing and fixture secretary / scrutineer Ric Hudson is mighty pleased with how captains and clubs have taken to the new system.
The new rules to accommodate the new system, which were introduced at the league's AGM in February, are in the league handbook and on the relevent section if this website. But, for quick reference, they are:
16 Results:

(a) Home clubs shall ensure the result card details are entered on the website in the correct playing order within 48 hours of the match being completed. Failure to comply with this rule will result in a fine of £5. The details should then be checked and approved by the away club within five days of the match being played.

(b) Clubs shall retain all the result cards for the home fixtures of all their teams until the end of the season. Result cards must clearly show individual player details which must include BCGBA numbers, forenames and surnames for players of both teams, and the correct associated scores.

c) Clubs must present result cards for verification within 72 hours of being called for by the league or a league officer.

d). Where a dispute arises and a result card is not provided for verification, the complainant shall have their complaint upheld, with no right of appeal being given to the home team.

e) A £5 fine may be incurred for either club named on a result card for failing to ensure player details are recorded accurately, and for failing to ensure the card is signed by their team captain.

f) Changes to club registered lists, or new member registration numbers, must be entered on the registration page of the website by clubs before the seasonal cut-off point. Thereafter all changes can only be made via the nominated league officer.

g). The principles of these rules are to ensure clubs enter their home fixture results in a timely and accurate manner, which must be fair to both sides playing in the fixture. The league may take action against a club, or a member of a club, who - for whatever reason - fails to meet these principles.
