So the new season starts 18th September, good luck to all the teams….
The website is undergoing final changes, this season sees a big change in score sheet submission.
Score sheets will be added directly to the website as opposed to being sent by e-mail. They can be added from the Fixtures/Results or Scoresheet page using drop down fields to select teams, players and scores. An image of the scoresheet can also be uploaded and then submitted. It is up to the winning team captain to submit the scoresheet within 7 days of the fixture being played. E-mail reminders will be sent out if nothing is uploaded within 2 days of the fixture date. The fixtures/Results page shows what fixtures should have been played and if a scoresheet has been uploaded. When the scoresheet has been submitted then an e-mail will go to the opposing captain asking for it to be confirmed. If the team captains do not respond within the timeframes allotted then e-mails will go to the fixture secretary as well.
Provided this is done then the league tables will automagically show current positions within each division. The website will also track player eligibility i.e. nominated players must play 1 of the first 3 matches for the relevant side and are only allowed to play up 3 times for mens/mixed and twice for ladies.
As this is the first season this website has been used then clubs are asked to retain original copies of the scoresheets as a backup to it all going horribly wrong!
