COUNTY LEAGUE 2018-19
For 2018-19 season SCBA are again asking Club Secretaries (or appointed League representative) to make an entry for all teams representing their Club in the County League.
Last season 28 teams played in three divisions. We have an indication that at least three new teams may enter in 2018-19, so if the number of teams exceeded 30 we would run four divisions with the advantage that there would be a more even standard within each league.
The number of divisions, the composition of the leagues and questions of promotion and relegation following the 2017-18 season cannot be resolved until we know how many teams have entered.
Players representing a Club must be bona fide members of the Club, but this season SCBA are accepting entries from ‘Barbarian’ teams in the lowest division.
A ‘Barbarian’ team could be formed by any individual or pair who wish to play in the County League, but cannot generate enough interest in their own club to form a complete team.
Please ask any pair or individual who may be interested in playing in a ‘Barbarians’ team in the County League to contact Bob Warrender.
At a later stage Clubs which enter more than one team must nominate a ‘core’ of 4, 5 or 6 members of each team who will play if available and who cannot play for another team.
At this early stage we only need to know the number of teams which your Club are likely to enter in the County League in 2018-19, identifying teams by initials of Captain’s names.
Payment and required details of teams will be asked for later. Fees depend on number of teams in a division
It is particularly important to inform Bob Warrender of :
- any new teams who wish to enter
- any teams that played in 2017-18 who are not entering in 2018-19
Please reply to Bob Warrender, Cutty House, North Cadbury, Yeovil BA22 7DG
(email ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’) or (phone 01963-440070) as soon as possible.
The League programme starts on 31st August and we need to organise the leagues well ahead of this date.
