At the Inter Area AGM yesterday the possibility of providing more games for everyone was discussed. The consensus of opinion was that we should have a supplementary cup and keep the ethos of the main KO competition the same.
Teams that lose their first game (whether in the first or second rounds) would go into a second competition. First round winners who lose in the second round would not go into the supplementary cup (or whatever we call it).
I can implement this in 2015 but I need some opinion or assent from the teams please ASAP.
I envisage the year going like this; Feb/March 1st round main (4 teams involved)
April/May 2nd round main (16 teams involved) 1st round supplementary (2 teams involved)
June/July 3rd round main (8 teams involved) 2nd round supplementary (8 teams involved)
August/Sept. Semi-finals of main (4 teams involved) Semi-finals of supplementary (4 teams involved)
Oct/Nov/Dec Finals of both competitions
The normal C team shield games would not be affected.
Hope to hear opinions from you soon Tony
