Hello! I hope everyone is having a good summer!
The time has come around to submit your interest into playing league matches for the next season, usually starting end of September and ending around April time.
Please fill out this form as soon as you can: https://forms.gle/etNz9h4nPBfYeFfPA
By filling this out, you are not committing to anything, nor are we guaranteeing any selections. Those that have joined us for the summer season, are more than welcome to fill out the form if you are interested and are likely to continue playing with us through the winter season.
As you may be aware from previous years, team selections aren’t the easiest to manage and very difficult to please everyone. However, we might be running things a little different to try and accomodate the usual oversubscribed interest.
Our proposed idea is that instead of having a team of 4 (plus reserves) is to have a squad of maybe about 6 or 7 (plus reserves), and everyone playing a equal number of games. Everyone will still play the majority of games (about 6-8 out of 10) but we can accomodate more players by doing so.
We thought this could work because most teams will have the occassional sub in anyway, but allows someone that might originally only able to make say 5 games, part of the team, instead of being a reserve and just hoping that someone drops out.
If we do decide to go through with this, it will not neccessarily mean all teams will have a squad of 6 or 7. This will be highly dependent on the abilities of the individuals and the selected teams. For example, if we think that there are only 4 players up to the standard of division 1, we will keep it as a team of 4.
We are still discussing this, so your input would be appreciated if you have any thoughts or concerns about it.
Mid Glos League
It has come to our attention, that interest for the Mid Glos league has dropped significantly and unfortunately there will NOT be a Men’s division next season.
Regarding the mixed league, they are still awaiting responses from some clubs, but the probability is very high that there will, at best, only be a single division. This is dependent on discussion at the AGM about the future of the league.
Please do still register your interest for the Mid Glos mixed league as we will relay information onto you as we hear from them.
Any other questions, please do ask Sarah McRitchie (Captain) or Drew Stewart (Vice Captain), and you can find their contact details in the ‘Club Committee’ section.
