Some good news for you, Gandalf:
All the founding member teams have shown an interest again, though two of last years venues have gone: the Mill House have moved to the Windmill Crawley and the Malt Shovel team wish to play from Ye Old Stout House. The Dun Horse A are staying put.
And on speaking to the other founder members last night, a switch to Tuesday nights has been approved.
So a provisional yes to a second team from the Bull, but this will be dependent on getting one more team on top of that to form a second division, as the general view is we need the season to be for no more than 6 weeks' of fixtures, to fit around Billingshurst's Jubilee Team Knockout.
The fixture list when issued will have the following dates:
Tues 24th June
Tues 1st July
Tues 8th July
Tues 29th July
Tues 5th August
Tues 19th August
Tues 26th August will be used either for a return Interleague challenge - OR - for a seventh week if a second division is formed. How this will work is on the basis of 2 divisions of 3 teams, with teams playing the others in their own division Home and Away, but those in the other division once only.
Were we to get a total of 7 or 8 teams, then we can revert back to six weeks and have the Interleague match again. But I don't think that this will happen, although this time around we would be willing to include Mid Sussex as within the Crawley catchment area.
Entry is free again, by the way.
