Committee Meeting Monday 6th December

December's Committee Meeting will take place on Monday 6th. At the meeting registration forms For the Pairs Cup and the Five-a-Side Cup will be issued. The pairs competition is, we think, self-explanatory. The Committee thought we would take this opportunity to remind clubs about the Five-a-side cup rules, so here goes. Read more

Teams of five club members plus substitutes may enter the competition. Once a player has played for a team, they become cup-tied and can not play for any other team.

Players may not register for more than one team. 

Clubs may enter more than one team. 

Additionally, teams made up of players from various clubs will be permitted to enter, however, all players of these teams must be registered before the night of the competition and can not then play for their registered club. 

No substitutions can take place once a round has started.

If this explanation is not clear, please don’t hesitate to ask.

About Our League

The league was formed by George Constable from Comrades at a meeting with the representatives from six local social clubs on Wednesday 6th July 1983.

Eleven different teams began playing in the first competition two months later on Tuesday 6th September. From these initial teams only the Comrades is still playing. However, a further seven teams have subsequently joined so most importantly now giving us a workable vibrant league.

From 1989 we regularly participated in a competition with the Colchester League until regrettably, they disbanded in 2004.

The History of Cribbage

In the early 1600s, Sir John Suckling an English courtier, poet, gamester and gambler invented cribbage, which he derived from the earlier game of Noddy.

Originally, a five-card game was played where each player discarded only one card to the crib. Nowadays the six-card game is more popular with each player discarding two cards to the crib.

Cribbage is very popular in the United States of America and Canada with many cribbage leagues and clubs in existence; in England, it is the only game that can legally be played in a public house for money.
