The quiz league is now suspended following the latest advice - 16th March 2020

At this evening's press conference, the latest advice is to avoid social gatherings, pubs, clubs, theatres, and non-essential travel. Whilst I understand this to be non compulsory (for the time being anyway), I now consider that it would be irresponsible to go against the guidance on this. I think that this leaves us with no choice but to suspend activities until further notice.

There should be no games played tomorrow on 17th March.

Corona Virus statement - 15th March

Hello Everyone

There will be people playing in the league who will fall into the current vulnerable groups category. Whilst some of us are OK, others will rightly be more concerned which is completely understandable. Primarily we have a duty to support their welfare.

I have decided that we will let this week’s matches go ahead, BUT if any team decide for their own best interests that they wish not to play, then I will postpone that match with unequivocal support for those teams, and I expect everybody else to support their decisions too.

If any team wish to cancel their match on 17th March 2020 then please contact me.

From everything I am reading, I suspect the country to be in a much different place next weekend. We will review the situation then anyway, as taking this one day / week at a time is the sensible course of action.

I honestly think though that some sort of national shutdown by the Government is inevitable before the end of April. If so, hopefully when normality returns, we can use the first few weeks of next season (October) to complete this one, and then progress with a shorter season for 2020/2021.

Stay well everybody

Knockout Handicaps

Hello Everybody

I have now calculated the Knockout Handicaps (see below) based on the first 12 games of the season, ie after everybody has played each other at home and away. The draw will tale place tomorrow evening at the Railway and I will update this website fixture list as soon as I can after that. The first Knockout matches will be on 10th March 2020.

The Knockout Handicaps are as follows...

Elephant - 0
Market B - 0
Railway - 1
Marketeers - 2
Phoenix - 2
Three Horseshoes - 2
Bull - 5
Phoenix B - 6
Rose and Crown - 6
Brents - 8
Railway B - 12
Bear - 16
Alma - 17
George - 28

All the best

Welcome to the 2019/2020 Season

Hello Everybody

A fixture list is now published. It may be subject to small changes. I need to confirm where the "Rose & Crown" team will be playing this season, and I still need to confirm with the Phoenix that the new Phoenix B team are OK to play there.

I wanted to try something a little bit different with the Knockout this season and intersperse it with the last few weeks of the league season in an effort to re-energise it. I will workout the Knockout handicaps from the scores after everyone has played each other twice, which we should have done by the end of January.

Good luck everybody and I look forward to seeing you all in the coming weeks.

Paul
