Fixture clarification when multiple sides in same league
Clarification re. multiple sides in same league.
When we have more than one side in a league, they will, of course, have to play each other. On such occurrences this is effectively two fixtures, a home match for one and an away match for the other, hence the reason it will show twice on the fixture list. The side which ‘owns’ the fixture will be shown in the ‘Side’ column. The team name shown in the fixture heading and highlighted in blue on the list are the opponents, and always have been.
Example from league fixture list:
|Tues||17||Oct||2pm||MYLOR “A”||v||MYLOR “B”|
Will show on website fixtures as:
Date Time Opponents/Event Venue Side Competition Rinks Team Woods
Tue, 17 Oct, 23 2:00 PM Mylor A Away Carpet B Carpet League 2 6 2
Tue, 17 Oct, 23 2:00 PM Mylor B Home Carpet A Carpet League 2 6 2
This shows as a ‘Carpet B’ side away to Mylor A, and a ‘Carpet A’ side at home to Mylor B, hence two fixtures, in the same way as if we are playing a different club, it is a fixture for each team.
For the purpose of league administration, points and tables, etc. Mylor A and Mylor B (and now Mylor C) are seen as completely different teams and the website fixtures reflect this.
