See Week One Thread - SPOT THE BALL 2021

Post by RalphCoatesComb » Sat Jan 23, 2021 11:11 am

The New Leagues for this Season's Competition will be:

The Willie Irvine and The Ray Pointer

Players will be notified of their League before the Season kicks off next Monday

The format will be the same as last Season with each team playing each other team within their League just once. There will be play-offs, leading to the Grand Final.

Any questions? Please ask NOW !

During Lockdown I, we had lots of nice comments about how S-T-B had, somehow, helped get some folk through the weirdness of Spring?Summer 2019.

We've had a "Zoom" with our mate with the Box Brownie. (Can you imagine telling someone that you were going for a "Zoom" 12 months ago? "Yeah, no probs, up the stairs, second door on the right!" :lol: ) He says that he's found some images that are kind of suitable.

So, if anyone is up for it, we can arrange a 2021 S-T-B competition.

Up for it? Just let us know. Obviously, to allow people to get on board, it can't start immediately.

Come on down. You know you want to !

Absolutely, count me in!

I’ve sold Brian Easton, Mark Winstanley and Ian Heliwell in the close season and I’m looking to secure the services of Scott Arfield, John McGreal and Ted McMinn. I have a good feeling about these upgrades. Bring it on Spot!

John

Ps, would Spot like some help from Rosie?
