Handbook, scorecards, postponements and claims


Click here for the handbook.  


An electronic scorecard must be input within 48 hours of a fixture.  Click here for league scorecard or click here for cup scorecard. Cards input after Saturday will miss the weekly match report.  A report covering two fixtures and results is sent to the Evening Telegraph. Paper scorecards for the league can be downloaded here or, for Cups, from the Cups page.  These should be kept safe by the home team until the end of the season, in case there is any dispute over the details entered on the e-scorecard. Do not deposit scorecards at the old collection points (such as the box pinned to notice board in the balcony at Ward Road).

The Match Secretary must be notified in advance about a postponement and informed promptly about the new date.

Claims mostly arise when teams confuse home nights. Home teams should contact away teams before each fixture to confirm they are aware of it. Claims may not be accepted if this is not done. Claim A is where opponents fail to appear without proper notice. Claim B is where opponents give notice of being unable to fulfil the fixture and concede the match. The claiming team inputs the scorecard, recording the reasons and whether contact was made before the fixture.
