All teams in Tiers 1-5 have been supplied with a league purchased laptop.
This laptop has Total Cricket Scorer (TCS) installed and each season the league provides
a database to be used to score Cherwell League matches. There is no rule on using the laptop
to score (as opposed to a traditional scorebook) however it is encouraged.
In particular submissions of results and scorecard is a simple operation if TCS has been used
to score the match.
If you turn your laptop on, try to start TCS and get Error: Cannot download document
rebooting the laptop will fix this.
Instructions on laptop use and results loading can be found
If your TCS scored match does not load
the chances are it is for one of the following reasons:
You are not using the 2023 database. This can be downloaded from the link below
You have not set the match up Home vs Away correctly. This needs to match the fixture
You have the wrong match date (note if you set the match up the day before remember to correct the date)
You must also load a new player file each week
This Player file will be placed in the 2023 Dropbox
folder on the Friday before each week of matches. This ensures new registrations and transfers are in the database
If you do not load this file you will see a number of 'unknown' players in the submitted scorecard and it will have to be corrected.
