For all 1st round winners in the Jimmy Ramsay super 16s the 2nd round draw will be made on tuesday 17th september at 6.25pm at wallsend buffs with all 8 games played in the order drawn immediately following the draw

The first round of the Jimmy Ramsay super 16s concludes at wallsend buffs tomorrow night(10th September) with the final 8 matches. Can I remind all players we use a roll on/roll off format and apart from the game starting at 6.30pm all times are approximate and may start earlier than scheduled so players should arrive early as we will not wait for a player to arrive. As always if any spaces become available on the night I will edit the draw to say SPACE AVAILABLE and that place will be drawn out from those in attendance.

A second nominated member to be added to the league committee
League fees to be agreed and registration forms to be handed out
Rules to be voted on
Addition to rule 3 a). If a club doesnít take new members then in lieu of a membership fee going to the club a one off fee would then go to the league to act as a membership fee for that club alternatively remove the rule from the league that you have to be a member of the club you are playing for.
Edit to rule 3 c) (ii). Players barred from other venues in the league. Options are
a. Keep rule as is with Team games going ahead as stated with barred players being unable to play with individual competition games reversed or played at a neutral venue
b. Team games are drawn earlier including barred players, with the affected games being played somewhere else on the same night
c. All affected games team games to reversed where possible or played at a neutral venue.
d. Barred players to be allowed in the venue to play the game
A team changing venue between season should be allowed to stay in the division they are currently in or should they start in the lowest division as new teams to the league would do
Edit to Rule 11. d) Dress code to stay as it currently as for semis and finals trousers/dark jeans, collared shirt(dress/polo) and shoes/smart trainers to be to become trousers, collared shirt(dress/polo) and shoes for both or for just final or to remove the dress code rule altogether.
5 Format changes
Instead of having the current division 1 and division 2 leagues playing each team home and away, changing to an east league and a west league and playing each team home and away
League singles final being changed from best of 5 final to a best of 7 final
Changing the format of the peter heron trophy. Proposing to play it the second half of the season and having separate competitions for each division. The competition would also be handicapped using the league points at the halfway stage of the season. For example a 5pt headstart would be given to the lower ranked team for every point they are behind the higher ranked team. Last season for the top and bottom teams at the halfway stage would mean in Division 1 Gosforth A were 32 points ahead of Forest Hall and would then give a 160pt headstart and in division 2 Innisfree were 30pts ahead of Social and would give a 150pt headstart
6. Balance sheet ready to be available for the other teams to view
7. Any ideas to increase revenue through sponsorship or other means
8. Would any team like an individual copy of their team fixtures as well as the usual complete league fixtures
9. Any other business
