Wednesday 10th December 2014: Many thanks to
Richard Lancaster for dropping JSFnetGB a line to let us know that his
wife Sylvia (then Dewhurst) competed for Blackpool in 1971 (and was
therefore an International Final winner!). As a result, Sylvia has been
added to the Blackpool team list on the
IAK 1971 and
pages. Thanks also to Alan Day for letting us know that his family took
Anything Goes 1975 Heat 2.
Friday 5th December 2014: Scoreboards added to
SPIEL 1971 today, resulting in a
score update to 1970 Heat 6.
Monday 1st December 2014: Both staging dates have
been revised for
SPIEL 1980, and there's a related
item of memorabilia added to
Saturday 29th November 2014: Some welcome new
information has been added today to
SPIEL 1971 (including a re-ordering
of heats), with the changed information being reflected in
Database: West Germany.
Friday 3rd October 2014: Thanks again to Gareth
Nickels for now confirming the name of a Rhyl team member -
Wednesday 1st October 2014: Firstly today, many
thanks to Laura Reed for letting me know that her father Peter Allan was a
Merton team member in
IAK 1968. We also have a
collectable from 1968, a newly confirmed venue for Rhyl
(with thanks to Gareth Nickels, town clerk of Rhyl Borough Council), a new
DYK note regarding the
JSF 1971 International Final result,
confirmed staging dates for
JSF 1994, an extra confirmed game and photo from the
1968 Final, and finally, games and results have been added
1969-1970. Thanks to Neil for his help with these updates.
Sunday 21st September 2014: JSFnetGB goes Dutch
today, as we've been able to update information for
Heat 2, which now includes finishing places and the name of the referee
for that year's competition.
Monday 15th September 2014: It's been a busy time
for me recently, as I have been putting the finishing touches to a book
about The Avengers television series. As this was published this
week, I have a little more time on my hands for the things I used to find
time for! First of these is to add scoreboards to
1969, with thanks to Neil Storer and Richard Farnham, and
to revise JSF 1965
to the new format, with added detail and images for venues.
Of course, something that has happened over the summer that
went uncommented on due to pressures of other work is that JSFnetGB has
moved web address. The domain name was becoming too expensive to maintain,
and the reluctant decision to move the site has been brought about as a
result of no donations to the site having come in in nearly a year. I
realise that the site has been quiet, of course, and that this is no doubt
a reason that the donations have dried up. Regardless, please set your
internet favourites to
http://www.hiddentigerbooks.co.uk/jsf/. Yes, JSFnetGB is
now a Hidden Tiger website.
Anyone interested in the Avengers book can find it here:
With Umbrella, Scotch and Cigarettes.
Thursday 24th July 2014: A little gem from Neil
Storer has been added to
Collectables 1976 today, a window
sticker from the JSF International Heat at Caslano Malcantone.
Wednesday 23rd July 2014: Neil has now supplied the
final result of
SPIEL 1969, the results of which are
Tuesday 22nd July 2014: Thanks to Neil who has
supplied updated team names and results for four
1969 heats - always exciting when fresh results are added
to the site! We are also pleased to add a team member, Trevor Mayall, to
the Gloucester IAK
1982 team. There is also a DYK note about him. Thanks to
his wife Kath for bringing his involvement to our attention.
Friday 20th June 2014: Now added to the site:
Interneige 1965 Winter Final, plus
expanded venue information for
IAK 1966, now with photographs.
Thanks to Neil for all his hard work on this. We hope that regular
visitors to JSFnetGB approve of our new look. Remember that if you would
like to help support the site, donations to site funds are gratefully
received and exceptionally helpful.
Wednesday 18th June 2014: The updates to the Series
Guide pages go a step or two further today, with venue information and
photographs added to
Bonsoir la Suisse 1965, venue
information, photographs and scorecards added to
and a photo from the King's Lynn British domestic heat added to
Thursday 12th June 2014: All Series Guide pages
between 1959 and 1967 are now changed to the new format. It's a long,
manual process, so the roll out across the whole guide will probably take
Wednesday 11th June 2014:
1968 has not only received a major update from Neil, but it
has also been given a makeover in our brand new Series Guide style. We
hope you like this new look and way of presenting the information - it
will be rolled out across the site over time.
SPIEL 1967 have also been processed in the new format. The
new format breaks down the Did You Know sections into three sub-sections -
The Venues, The Games in Detail and Did You Know? - and we are also adding
scorecards as we go which plot the points awarded game-to-game plus
Tuesday 10th June 2014: Scoreboards have been added
SPIEL 1968. Thanks to Neil Storer and Richard Farnham for
making this possible.
Monday 19th May 2014: Thanks to Neil for his updates
SPIEL 1971, which includes some changes to staging dates, a
DYK note and team members added for the Schwabach and Offenburg teams.
This new information has also prompted tweaks to
Neil has also provided confirmed results for two
1968 contests (Heats 2 and 4), for which we previously had
Friday 16th May 2014: Another team member name
added, this time to
IAK 1977, with thanks to Pembroke
competitor Dai Boswell for letting us know. We have also updated the
IAK 1968 and
with information regarding the cancellation of the French International
Heat due to the Paris student riots of May and June 1968. The 1968 series
of Spiel Ohne Grenzen also has a newly confirmed result, care of Neil
Storer, and it's the highest-ever winning margin in the history of the
West German or British domestic competitions. See Heat 1. This has also
prompted alterations to the DYK notes of
1967 Heat 3 and
IAK 1973 Heat 4.
Tuesday 6th May 2014: I'm very grateful to Bob
Crawford for contacting the site. Bob played for Swindon in
and is now on the team members list here!
Friday 14th March 2014: Many thanks to Hellen
Dunlavey (née Walton) who has contacted us to let us know that she
competed for Bournemouth in
IAK 1979. We are happy to add her
name to the team members list.
Monday 3rd March 2014: Apologies for the break in
service - JSFnetGB has been moving home. This doesn't mean that the URL
has changed, rather that I have moved house and am only just getting back
on my feet. There are still boxes of belongings everywhere, nothing is
readily to hand, or if it is, I can't see it for the boxes! The upside is
that JSFnetGB is now based in a place with a decent IAK and JSF pedigree.
The downside is that the updates will be minimal for a little while longer
while I sort everything out. Today's update is small but welcome - Neil
has found another result for
1968, for Heat 3.
Tuesday 11th February 2014: Thanks to Neil
and JSF 1975
have all been updated with information concerning Italian competitor
Giovanni Bellini, who made an impressive nine appearances in the series
during this period. Details of Giovanni's exploits in 1968 will feature in
a special update in the near future.
Sunday 26th January 2014: Today four West German
teams have been added to
Teams 1972 and
Teams 1973, with thanks to Neil
Storer and Christos Moustakas. A handful of photos have also been added to
JSF 1974. The SPIEL 1973 page now
features the team member names for the Pfullingen team, thanks to
Christos. I've also written some DYK notes for the Marburg an der Lahn v.
Pfullingen heat. Neil has also been able to add team members to SPIEL
1972, SPIEL 1973,
SPIEL 1979 and
Saturday 18th January 2014:
1971 staging dates revised as a result of fresh evidence
being found. Thanks to Neil for this information.
Sunday 12th January 2014: Thanks to Neil, who has
tracked down some information about
1969 which had thus far proved elusive. As a consequence,
we now have a venue for Heat 1, the full name of the Lauingen team and a
theme and new DYK for Heat 3.
Thursday 9th January 2014: In a marvellous piece of
poor timing, we at JSFnetGB are now celebrating Christmas... Neil Storer
has done a fine job with documenting
XMAS 1973, so if you're disappointed
Christmas is over for another year, here's another helping of seasonal
fare with our compliments!
Wednesday 8th January 2014: We round off Neil's
excellent updates to
1967 today, as he takes a detailed look at Heat 6, the
final domestic heat of the year. Thanks also to Christos Moustakas who has
opened his 2014 account with transmission dates of
Tuesday 7th January 2014: A return visit to
1967 today, as Neil looks at Heats 4 and 5.
Monday 6th January 2014: More today about
1967 - the second part of
Neil's updates to this series covers Heat 3 and adds significant detail to
what we previously knew about the competition.
Sunday 5th January 2014:
New Year to all visitors and contributors to JSFnetGB!
Our first update of 2014 is an obvious one assuming you drop in on
this page regularly - the 2013 updates have been archived, so please check
the link directly beneath this one to catch up on updates over the
last few months. Thanks to Bury team member Jack Edgar for contacting us
and pointing out our oversight in not crediting him as a member of the
team in IAK 1979
and JSF 1979.
Team member information is not always easy to track down, so it's very
helpful when people like Jack drop us a line! Thanks also to Neil Storer,
who has submitted an exhaustive set of updates for
1967, the first of which, for Heat 1, has been added today. Meanwhile, if you enjoyed our 2013 updates, please
consider making a contribution to our funds, however small - see the
top of the page for details. Many thanks and best wishes.
