It has been noted that there have been some technical difficulties in correctly operating the John Ripley and Knotty Ash Cup competitions during the current seasons. This has, in part, been due to some technical difficulties with the association website and league management system.

The decision has been taken, in order to avoid confusion, to remove both John Ripley and Knotty Ash Cup competitions from the League Management System.

Whilst contingency arrangements are implemented, club captains and secretaries are asked to contact the tournament controller, Will Cook, if there are any questions relating to either competitions.

The Executive Committee are currently and actively exploring an alternative platfom on which to manage these competitions.

Further updates will be made available in due course and as soon as the situation has been clarified.
