2022/23 season update 🚀
Oli attended the S&DCA AGM last night. We've been placed in Division 2 for the upcoming league season. The preliminary fixtures will be announced sometime in the next couple of weeks.
⚠ UPDATE: We're going to try to have a club night on Sep 14, although it might be a bit busy downstairs because the Millers are at home. Normal service will be resumed next week!
We managed a mid-table finish in the Summer League. There were some incredibly tight and exciting matches, particularly (to my memory) the curtain-raiser against Nomads and the two ties against Hillsborough and University. In the final reckoning Worksop came out as worthy champions, only dropping 3 points over the whole season. Thanks to everyone who took part
We could definitely do with more players for the upcoming league season. Have a word with Chris if you want to take part. Also, now would be a great time to take out or renew an ECF membership at Bronze level or above.
League fixtures announced 📅
Exciting news! We've been placed in Division 2 of the "Summer" League, and our first match will be at home on Wednesday 2 March against Nomads B.
We'll play 10 matches at home and away over the next few months. Our fixtures and results can be found here on the ECF LMS.
A reminder: do feel free to come down to the club as normal on match nights, even if you're not playing in the match. And if you want to make yourself available for us in the league, have a word with Chris. Also, now would be a good time to take out or renew an ECF membership at Bronze level or above.
Over-the-board league to resume 🎉
The Sheffield association have decided to resume the league, starting at the end of the month! Naturally, we'll be entering a team, and we're looking forward to some matchplay. Chris is continuing as captain with Oli handling the paperwork.
These will be proper ECF-rated games, 75 minutes for each player, and you'll need to record your moves. (We've got some scoresheets though, and maybe even some pens as well)
We'll be playing our home matches on Wednesday nights at the Three Cranes. On match nights, do feel free to come down to the club as normal even if you're not playing in the match—it'll be a far quieter atmosphere than usual, but you are very welcome to watch or play some friendly games on the sidelines.
In weeks that we have an away match, we may or may not meet on Wednesday. The fixture list will be released in a few weeks and we'll be able to plan better.
If you want to play for us in the league, have a word with Chris. Also, now would be a good time to take out or renew an ECF membership at Bronze level or above. See you on Wednesday for the usual rapid shootout.
