Sat Jan 27th

On behalf of the Burton Executive Committee:

The position regarding Barton A in the 1st division was discussed and it was decided that they should remain in Division 1.

The reason behind the decision is as follows:

Following the loss of a significant number of 1st team players, no official request was received from Barton BC to place their 1st team in a lower league.

Without such a request, the committee decided it has neither the intention nor the authority to relegate a team in these circumstances. 


Mon Jan 8th

Reminder that all clubs should have at least one named Safegaurding Officer who must hold a current DBS.
