Winter Season 2022/23

15 September 2022

The best of luck to all teams as the new season gets under way tomorrow, and just a reminder that the use of A N Other has changed. As agreed at the A G M, A N Other now consists of a default score and not the average score per leg as applied last season. If a team has eleven players and plays one A N Other, then that is entered on the scoreboard in the number twelve position and has a score of 5 per leg (20 in total). If a team has ten players and plays two A N Other, then the A N Other's are entered in the number twelve and number eleven positions on the scoreboard with the second A N other scoring 4 per leg (16 in total).

Do any teams require stickers?

14 September 2022

We have recently received a couple of enquiries on our Facebook page from parents who have sons interested in sticking, see below:

Hi, I hope you don't mind me to message but my sons friend helps out and does sticking and my son James who will be 16 in Oct is also interested to do this but have no idea if anything is available. It would need to be within Hereford and not in the country as he would ride his bike but, if you hear of anything, I'd be very greatful if you would message me. Many thanks, Emma

Hi, do you know of any teams in need of a sticker for the new season? My 15 year old son is really interested In doing it. Thanks, Rachel

If your team needs a sticker, please contact us to let us know.
