CLACTON MEN'S DARTS  LEAGUE

(www.clacton-mens-darts-league.org.uk/)

 

NEWSLETTER  OCTOBER  2002

 

UPDATES COMRADES COLNE ROAD.  

NEW CAPTAIN:  NEIL WARWICK,  51 SPENSER WAY,  CLACTON.  TEL: 224149.

 

WITH THE NEW SEASON ONLY 3 WEEKS OLD SOME VERY INTERESTING RESULTS ARE SHOWING UP, WHICH COULD INDICATE THAT THE NEW STRUCTURE OF THE LEAGUE AND THE RE-BALANCING OF THE DIVISIONS IS HAVING SOME EFFECT.  WITHOUT POINTING OUT ANY TEAMS IN PARTICULAR, THERE ARE ONE OR TWO TEAMS WHO HAVE "JUST SOLDIERED ON" IN THE PAST,   WHO ARE NOW KNOCKING ON THE TOP OF THEIR DIVISION.  LIKEWISE SOME TEAMS WHO HAVE ALWAYS BEEN THERE OR THEREABOUTS, SUDDENLY FIND THEMSELVES IN LESS FORTUNATE  POSITIONS.  BUT IT IS STILL VERY EARLY DAYS YET.

ALTHOUGH ONLY 3 LEAGUE GAMES HAVE BEEN PLAYED, UP TO DATE LEAGUE TABLES ARE  ENCLOSED FOR ALL TEAMS INFORMATION.

 

FOR THE INFORMATION OF NEW TEAMS,  PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT THE HOME AND AWAY TEAMS NAMES ARE SHOWN ON THE RESULT CARD, AND THAT INDIVIDUAL PLAYERS GAMES RESULTS ARE SHOWN IN THE CORRECT COLUMN.    IN THE CASE ON THE "FRED AUSTIN CUP" CARDS, WHERE A TEAM HAS TWO TEAMS ENTERED MAKE CERTAIN THE IT CLEARLY SHOWS THE "A" OR "B"  TEAM THAT HAS PLAYED.

 

WHILST ON THE "FRED AUSTIN CUP"  IT APPEARS THAT SOME CAPTAINS/SECRETARIES ARE NOT KEEPING A CHECK ON THEIR CUP COMMITMENTS, ESPECIALLY WHEN TWO TEAMS ARE   ENTERED.  SEVERAL GAMES HAVE BEEN FORFEITED BECAUSE TEAMS COMMITMENTS HAVE NOT BEEN CHECKED BY CAPTAINS/SECRETARIES. 

BECAUSE THE FRED AUSTIN WAS AN INVOLVED DRAW, AND TO ASSIST THE TEAMS REMAINING IN THAT CUP, BELOW IS THE DRAW FOR THE NEXT ROUND TO BE PLAYED BY  8/11/02

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT RESULTS CARDS FOR  ALL CUP GAMES  MUST BE RETURNED TO JOHN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE SO THAT THE "DRAWS" CAN  BE KEPT UP TO DATE.  CAPTAINS/SECRETARIES CAN ALWAYS CHECK WITH JOHN IF THEY WANT TO KNOW WHO THEIR NEXT OPPONENTS ARE IN THE DRAW.

 

ONE FINAL POINT.  IT WOULD APPEAR THAT  THE NORMALLY ACCEPTED "FRIENDLY BANTER"  BETWEEN HOME AND AWAY TEAMS, ON ONE OR TWO OCCASIONS,  HAS "GONE OVER THE TOP".  SHOUTING OUT WHEN PLAYERS ARE ACTUALLY THROWING THEIR DARTS, AND ON ONE OCCASION BECOMING OBJECTIONABLE AND PERSONAL.  THIS TYPE OF BEHAVIOUR IS NOT EXPECTED NOR IS IT ACCEPTABLE IN  OUR LEAGUE  AS IT CAN  / COULD DEVELOP INTO MORE SERIOUS SITUATIONS.

WILL ALL CAPTAINS AND SECRETARIES ASSIST IN KEEPING REASONABLE ORDER DURING GAMES.  

EVERYONE SHOULD THEN BE ABLE TO ENJOY THE EVENING.

 

IN THE MEANTIME, AS ALWAYS, GOOD DARTING TO ALL.

 

YOUR COMMITTEE.
