Season Update

Just a quick note to keep you updated on the status of the league.
I've spoken to Bertie earlier today, and we've decided to continue scheduling fixtures at this point. We will try to support our venues as long as they stay open. This of course is a fast-moving situation, and can change at short notice. If any lockdowns are enforced, of course we will suspend the season until such time that it is safe to continue.
That said, we fully understand that teams have health concerns, including my own team. We will publish fixtures as normal, but understand some teams will want to postpone. If this is the case, please can you let me know as soon as possible, so that the opponents can be notified. Games postponed with at least 48hrs notice will be held over, to be rearranged if possible.
Short notice cancellations (less than 48hrs) will be treated as usual. The opponent will have the option to rearrange or claim the points.
The season may be extended if there is a backlog of fixtures to rearrange, and teams are willing to play. Otherwise, we will have to cut-off at some point and award points for unplayed games. This will be decided at a later date.
This is our position at the moment. Of course this is under constant review.
