Aunt Sally at the Plough
The photo below shows the Plough MG A team winning the Supplementary Cup in 2018
We have a very enthusiastic group of Aunt Sally Players at the Plough.
In 2018 we added the Casuals in Div 6 to the 1sts in Div 5 of the Bicester and District League.
The 2019 season is now well under way. The Casuals had two Pairs in the Division 5 Pairs semi finals
and reached the semi finals of the Supplementary Cup and were unlucky not to reach the finals in
both cases. But Helen from the Casuals has won through the heats to the Division 5 Singles Final on September
20th. The 1sts will be playing in the Intermediate Cup semi finals on Aug 21st and have two
Pairs, (Ben+Ben and Matt+Nick) who will play in the Division 4 Pairs semi finals on September 11th.
On August 8th 2019 Matthew Orlando managed to score a Sixer! (Hitting 6 dolls with 6 sticks)
(even better we needed 6 to win the match 2-1 .....and he was the last player in the 3rd leg)
1sts are in DIVISION 4 in 2019
Casuals are in DIVISION 5 in 2019
Details of 2019 fixtures are on the Diary page. Cup events for teams/pairs/singles/fours
will be updated as they are confirmed.
Recent Cup Finals .....in 2016 Nick won the Singles trophy for our division,
in 2017 Mark won the Singles Trophy for our division and the team won the Supplementary Cup.
In 2018 Nick won the Singles trophy, Adam B and Lewis W won the Pairs for Div 6 and Damo and Toby won the Pairs for Div 5.......and the 1st team won the Supplementary Cup.
..........not sure how we can cap the 2018 result ..........but we are going to have a good try in 2019!
The dates for Aunt Sally are on the DIARY page of this website
(if you are reading this out of the playing season they will be on there as soon as we have them)
WE HAVE TWO TEAMS The Plough MG 1sts for the more experienced and committed and
the Plough MG Casuals team for novice players and for more experienced players who cannot
commit to regular practice and attendance but would like to play from time to time.
Please Contact Us if you are interested in joining one of the teams.
Or just pop into the Main Bar when we are open. Ask for the sticks and the practice doll and have
a go at the game. Any of us or any players who are around in the Plough can explain how it works
New players always welcome although if you are past the cut off date for a year you won't be able to
join a team till next season (usually around the end of June).
Matches are on a Wednesday nearly every week but it is not essential to play in every match.
Aunt Sally is a serious game of skill but it is also a lot of fun - the game usually
includes some drama with a few tense heart stopping moments (especially in the 2018 Supplementary Cup final!)
The teams are all very friendly and new team members are made very welcome.
