Apologies for the changes, but the Inter Club Scratch Gents Draw has had to be completed again. St. Patrick’s Scratch team were omitted from the draw in error. The Inter/Junior Handicap draw remains the same.
The extra team in the Scratch Gents draw has necessitated a slight change of format. All teams are still in a single group and will still play four games each. These games are now to be played over four rounds, the first two rounds hosting four teams, the last two rounds hosting three teams. The top four teams will still qualify for the semi-finals. The draw is at the link below and the Downloads > Draws section of the website:
The competition rules and formats are repeated below for clarity. Apologies again for the changes.
