I shall refrain from commenting about the Roman lack of imagination.... I am assuming the correct spelling of these players is as follows: Martyn Simpson Steve Murton Micky Woods Not sorted out the exact details for the bye - but will be a randomised first round draw. The player receiving the bye wi...

Re: Roll Call 2019

I don't think game times have been published as yet - I think 3 hour games are enough, so would the following be OK:

Sat:
Game 1: 9:30 - 12:30
Game 2: 13:30 - 16:30
Sun:
Game 3: 9:00 - 12:00
Game 4: 13:00 - 16:00
