It is with great sadness that I report of the passing away of Malcolm 'Sam' Butler who used to play aunt sally in our league with Launton Sports Club A team.
His funeral will take place at Banbury Crematorium on Thursday 8th September at 12 o'clock midday.
I have noticed that the results have not appeared in the Bicester Advertiser for a few weeks now. I've sent a couple of emails to the publishers trying to find out why they haven't appeared but have got no response.
This week's sixer is Martin Wanless (Shakebull). Well done.
Talking about sixes, we have a trophy for the player with the most sixes throughout the season. As it stands at the moment, we don't have anyone with more than one six - we have 16 players with just the one, meaning that we should be talking about a "play off" between those 16 - but, as I see it at the moment, we just don't have time to do that. What I really need to prevent having to do that, is one of those 16 players to get another one this coming Wednesday in their last league game of the season!
Rather tight at the top of the Top Doll Scorers list too! Francis Hillier and Kevin Powney tied on 130 each. Could involve another play off unless one of them pulls away this coming Wednesday.
Right, let's get out there and enjoy it!
Last Wednesday's Cup and Plate semi-final results have been updated.
The finals of the three plate competitions will be held at The Bull Inn, Launton on Wednesday 7th September, starting at 8 o'clock. The singles, pairs and four a side semi finals will be also take place there on that same night.
The full schedule can be found on the fixture page
The three cup finals will be played on Finals Night (Friday 16th September) at the Black Bull.
Last week's results are attached, along with updated individual scores and league tables.

No sixers this week.
I'm away on holiday from Friday morning - for a week. So there'll be nothing published next weekend - it's only the four a sides anyway.
The Phil Allen Four-a-Side competition. The draw for this competition, to be played on Wednesday 27th July has been made and on our Fixtures page
This week's sixers are Jon Woodman (Muddy Duck) and Lee Conway (Highfield SC B). And my apologies to Colin Baldwin (Bull Inn A) who also hit a six earlier in the season, but I forgot to publish it. Congratulations to the three of them.
The draw for the Four a Side will be done on Tuesday evening and, hopefully, I'll get the list out to you before Wednesday evening's games.
Last Wednesday's singles results have been added to the Results page.
Congratulations to those who got through.
This week's sixers - Francis Hillier (Launton S&SC A) and Dave Futter (White Horse B). Dave's came in a terrific score of 14. Well done to both of them.
“The Steve Huntley Memorial Shield” singles competition. The draw for this competition, to be played on Wednesday 6th July has been made and is on the Fixtures page.
Congratulations to this week's sixers - Pete Dempsey and Brian Gough (both from White Lion Fewcott A) and Trevor Jones (Red Lion Finmere). Well done.
I will get the draw for the Singles done (probably on Tuesday evening) to allow me to notify the captains before you all meet up again on Wednesday evening.
Oh yeh, I've just remembered...... I had it brought to my attention that, on the results for the pairs published last week, I said the semi finals are on 9th September - they're not, they're on Wednesday 7th September.
Firstly, please note that the Shakespeare team will no longer be playing their home fixtures at the Shakespeare - they are moving to the Bull at Launton.
The results of the pairs competitions held on Wednesday evening are attached. Very well done to those who got through.
On a sadder note, cancer doesn't care who it affects or when and our aunt sally friend, Laurie Welford of the Black Bull Launton is currently battling lung cancer.
A number of his friends at the pub have felt very humble in his company over the last few months, especially doing things we take for granted - including playing aunt sally and golf.
Therefore the opportunity to try and raise some much need funding for such a worthwhile cause, doing something we share with Laurie, couldn't be missed.
In an effort to do just that, four of his pub and aunt
sally friends (Karl Budd, Ged Mills, Richard Butler and Paul Giles - calling
themselves The Black Bulls Hitters) are taking part tomorrow in the Longest Day Golf
Challenge - four rounds of golf in one day.
If you would like to support them, by making a donation, please see the attachment below. It does say on there that they have already raised £570.00 but I have just seen on Facebook that that figure has risen to £800.00. A terrific effort already.
Your support would be gratefully appreciated!
