The course is being run by MARK BIRCUMSHAW, Staffordshire CGBA Secretary at a cost of £15 per person. Mark, also now INTERIM CEO of BCGBA, is an experienced speaker on the subject and has made places available to 30 Clubs from our area.

Well it''s a rainy welcome to the 2018 season. However, just 3 matches outstanding so well done to everyone who played through the wet conditions.
A number of complaints have been received already. Here''s my Q and A.
Q. Why have we started so early when there are blank weeks coming up very soon?
A. You will all have a Cup Match on May 7th (May Day Bank Holiday).
A. Some teams will have an additional Cup Match on May 28th (Spring Bank Holiday).
Q. Why are there byes in Divisions 3 and 4?
A. Both of these Divisions have 9 teams, we would like to attract 2 more teams but they have not come forward.
Q. Why did we have to finish our games in the dark?
A. You should know that there are potentially problems with light restriction this time of year. It''s simple. Start earlier!!!
Welcome to the 2018 Season. Your Fixtures are now live.
