MITCHELL-WILSON LEAGUE

Winner will be decided by:

• Total Points – points allocated - 2 for win, 1 for draw

In the event of a draw, total shots scored will decide.

 

If you need someone to take your place for a game, please try players in the team not playing that night.

In season 2018-2019 it was decided to replay the final game between teams 2 v 3 because of a mistake in substitutions which led to one team being without a fourth player, subsequently penalised by 2 shots and as a result losing the game. The committee took the decision to replay the game in the name of fairness to all concerned.
