later than I hoped but please find attached the draft Yorkshire League
fixtures for 2023-24. Assuming that there are no significant problems I will
aim to make these official by Monday next week which will be Monday 24th July.
top divisions were quite straightforward as it was simply a case of putting
the promoted/ relegated teams in a suitable pairing position, switching
homes and aways from the previous year and changing the order of the rounds
so that matches don't fall in the same sequence.
Silver Rook is experimenting with a new league structure this year. This
was agreed following discussion at the AGM and will likely be revisited
there next year. I have communicated already with Silver Rook captains
about this but for the benefit of others the new system will work as
thirteen teams in the Silver Rook that have been separated in two pools;
one of seven teams and one of six teams. Each pool will play a round robin
tournament which concludes on 27th January. At this point
the top three teams in each pool will play three final matches against the
three teams they haven't played while the lower half will play three or
four matches against teams from the opposing pool.
also note that due to a congested calendar the season will make an early
start than normal on 16th September.
