Following on from last night's semi finals where 4 players were identified as not complying with the dress code standard 1 from Wem BC and 3 from Whixall. despite being advised beforehand by email and instructions were also on the website. On this occasion the management committee have  decided not to take any action as it would have no bearing on the actual final result.

Can i remind the finalists Adderley,Woore Malpas Sports and Wem BC that dress code must be adhered to on September 10th. The referee's have been directed to check dress code eligibility before players commence their game. As with all Whitchurch league merits and final stages of cup competitions anyone found not to be compliant will result in the opposition being awarded the match 21-0.
