Combine your statistics when you play for multiple teams or change your name

Tuesday 20 September 2022

It's something you've requested for many years. You have two or more sets of statistics on this website - they're all you, but they're completely separate. This can happen because:

  • you've changed your name, perhaps for marriage
  • you play both ladies and mixed for your club
  • you play for multiple teams
  • someone misspelled your name

Now for the first time you can combine them into one set of all your statistics.
