Today is the last day to pay entry fees. Some teams have still not done so.

Captain Tim is doing a tremendous job. There will be 4 Oxford teams this season.

To some extent, it already is: evidence derives from videre, to see.

No, he hasn't :)

Enniscorthy are back (3N). But if Kings Head don't enter, there could be 'issues' arising

The teams relegated from Division Two would be first in line for a reprieve with Warwickshire Select 2 in pole position.

That's a surprise :)

I thought Enniscorthy had definitely said no, but it would be good to see them again

Apparently Wokefield Park is under new management. It will be interesting to see if this changes anything for the forthcoming season.

We held a Junior 4NCL weekend there this past weekend.

The change in decoration is noticeable. If you're a fan of artificial plants, wood furnishing, and a general parkland/woodland feel, then Wokefield Park is the hotel for you.

They have also changed their policy on dogs at the hotel; in case anyone's players have as their conditions that they can bring along their hounds...
