Welcome to the News

Joe Naylor
Sadly,  Joe was selected to play on the big green in the sky
on Wednesday 16th May.
His funeral is on Friday 1st June at 12.15pm
at Our Lady's Church, Runcorn.
Followed by cremation at Walton Lea.
With a celebration of Joe's life
afterwards at the Beechwood Community Centre.
Our thoughts are with his family
and many friends at this sad time.
( many thanks to Sue and Michelle for this message )

The next round of the
Murphy Cup Draw is on the Runcorn Comps page
and hopefully on the MB system shortly.

Cup Draws
The Cup draws for both the Runcorn & Frodsham leagues
can be seen on site, on their own pages.
Hopefully, we can put them into the MB system
ready for the first round games, for the results to be entered.

Runcorn League

Corporation have withdrawn from Section Two.
They have been replaced by a new team....Grapes C team.
This will mean that the Grapes C team
will play their HOME fixtures on a Monday evening.
See Runcorn Fixtures page for details.

All change?
If you see the bottom of this page, it reads copyright 2007.
So it is 10 years since the creation of allbutacross.
Prior to that, you would all need to go and buy a copy of
the Runcorn Weekly or Northwich Guardian.
( that would have been a week behind!)
How much have you saved?
It took some time for us to move so many of you onto
websites and the speed at which things could be done.
Nowadays, you have all the information within hours
of putting your bowls in your bags after a game.
I know speaking to so many bowlers how much you
have come to rely upon it as a weekly read.
It has been so worthwhile for local bowlers.

In the 10 years, I have been very lucky indeed.
I have only had two site crashes, that were repaired within
a couple of days, and some of you didn't notice.

And so onto the change....
Many of you have been chasing me for more information
and greater 'in depth' of records etc.
Siting the "MB" system that the Norley League use.
Because 12 clubs already use and are so familiar with
this system and I have had assurances from Mike B
that this will run for many years, I'm very happy to
start to use it for the Frodsham league.
It will not be perfect to start with and we will
run it side by side with allbutacross for a while.
I will send out password codes to teams/captains
for them to miss me out and put their results in directly.
Nobody need worry, you can continue sending Pete
the results sheets and use the current system that you use
now. Or change, whichever suits you best.
I ( or my replacement in the future ) will still need to check everything
is correct, and John B will be in a better position to
oversee all matters as well.
A new website ( basic at moment ) is available for you to see....


Probably best when you open it, and then to save it
as one of your favourites to save time in the future.
