Thu Apr 13th

URGENT 

Following Management discussions late into the night concerning Ladies Division 2 having 3 byes (6 in total) the following changes will apply - Ladies Division 2 now having 9 teams will be restructured based on a 10 matrix team system instead of the current 12 matrix system. This will mean that the first two weeks of matches already played will be void and the Division will start again on Tuesday 18th April.  The Management fully appreciate that this will not be suitable for all, especially those that won away in the first series of matches, but it is felt that this is the best solution to remove two out of the three byes we had.  As previously stated Baggeridge had 5 weeks of byes which would not have been acceptable.   Derek Brookes, Secretary


Thu Apr 6th
