Absent Friends Trophy

As the current League season is reaching its finale, we're now preparing for the second Absent Friends Trophy.

This is a Handicap competition for Wirral teams and this year we have 16 entrants. This means there will be four groups of four teams, with each team guaranteed three matches. The top two in each group will go forward to the Quarter-Finals.

The groups will be drawn at the end of the season based on final league positions and handicaps calculated based on average scoring.

Matches will be played on Mondays and Tuesdays with the following schedule:

Week 1 - w/c Monday 4th March;

Week 2 - w/c Monday 11th March;

Week 3 - w/c Monday 18th March;

Quarter-Finals - w/c Monday 25th March;

Semi-Finals and Finals Night - Monday 15th April (this is a blank week in the Riley Cup schedule) venue still tba.

We hope all teams enjoy the event and that it will be as successful as last year's inaugural event, won by Joey's Nomads

This is looking like being the biggest event of its kind ever in the UK and one of the venues is the Cross Keys, a pub in Liverpool city centre.  There are currently around 15 spaces left available there and it would be great to see those spaces filled with MQL players.
