Archive Summary

This page gives details of what archive material we currently have, how much of it is online, and how much is waiting to go online.

You can access the archive information from the Archive menu at the top of every page on this website.

All the information I have for the 2004–5 season and earlier is now online. The League's existing archive should hold a complete record from at least the year 1999; what I don't have for these years I will get and upload in due course. If you have anything from before 1998 that isn't mentioned here, please let me know!

Thanks to Andy Johnson, Robin Morrell, Tim Findlow and Alan Gilday, who have provided information so far.

How to Use the Archive

There is an Archive section in the main menu at the top of every page in the site. As well as sections for Fixtures & Results, Tables, etc., this includes an Archive Menu. From the menu you can access a further menu for each year, as well as direct links to the latest updates and a summary of the history of the League (detailing changes made year by year).

We have no fixtures or results from before the 1982–3 season. We have rules for a season that began in January 1982, but no fixtures or results. We have no record at all of the League being in existence before January 1982.

Tables

Final League tables are now online for 1986–7 and all later seasons, except 1988–9, 1991–2, 1992–3 and 1993–4 (which are all missing).

Individual

Full final individual tables are now online for 1994–5 and all later seasons.

Final individual top tens are online for seasons 1985–6, 1986–7 and 1991–2. The half–way scores for 1991–2, but not the final tables, are also online. These are the only individual scores I have previous to 1994–5.

Question Setters' Trophy

The only details we have prior to the 1994–5 season is the final table from 1986–7 and the winner for 1985–6 (both of which are online). Full final tables for all seasons from 1994–5 to 2008–9 are now online, except for 2006–7. Later years are waiting to go online and will be there in due course.

(The winner from 1985–6 was announced with the results of the final matches from that season, and is also in the Honours Board.)

News & Views

These normally come with the results, so where we have the results we should have any News & Views that were provided at the time. Everything we have for seasons up to and including 2004–5 is now online. (For seasons from around 1999 onwards, some information and comments have been added in the course of compiling the archive.)

Rules

I was recently passed some League rules going back as far as 1982, which I have put online. This would appear to be the earliest documentation we have relating to the League. The rules for seasons 1982, 1984–5, 1985–6 and 1987–8 are now online, with changes from the previous set (of those we have) highlighted.
