Preparation for the 2020-2021 season

In preparation for next season, attached is a player registration form for you to complete and return to ourselves.

Please note that due to the current situation we are planning not to charge a registration fee.

If and when the season starts, any additional new players may be subject to a signing on fee.

We are not in a position to give a date for the season to start.

This is going to be subject to political decisions that will decide when pubs and clubs can re-open.

​It will also be subject to the individual landlords as to whether or not they feel that their establishment is safe for the teams based on social distancing guidelines.

When your pub/club re-opens you should have discussions with your landlord regarding this.​

It is also advisable to discuss with your team members whether or not they are comfortable playing when we get a start date.
Thought should also be given to your sticker upper, are they willing to participate and if so are there any special arrangements that would have to be made for them.
I hope that this gives you some understanding of what we are going to have to consider.

Please feel free to contact either of us with any views or comments.
When we prematurely closed the season early there were some very unhelpful comments placed on Social Media.

Some of our members obviously did not appreciate the serious nature of this pandemic.

If you or your team have any points to raise please do so directly with us.

Thank you.

Cancellation of the Skittles League Season 2019/2020

Sadly the league officers have spoken with each other and decided to end the season as of today (Sunday) due to the ongoing COVID-19 problems. We felt it would be unfair to ask teams to travel around especially as a large number of players are in the at risk category.

All league, cup and end of season games will no longer be played and all monies paid for the latter will be offset towards next season's subscriptions should we be able to start the next season on time.

 

Unfortunately this means that there will be no promotion or relegation this year, which we know is upsetting to those who have already done enough to gain promotion, but felt that this is the fairest option open to us.

 

Again may we express are sadness for having to take this action, but hope you will all understand the reasoning behind it.
