Gate B have withdrawn from the Pairs League.
Johnstown C have unfortunately had to withdraw from League Division 4 of the Saturday League, please read the below in conjuction with this.
It is with sad regret that I have to inform you that the Johnstown Bowling Club Committee has decided to withdraw our C team from the Saturday division 4 league.
During the first 2 weeks of April we have had a significant number of members declare that they no longer wish to play on a Saturday. This has left us with only half a dozen players for this week’s fixture at Farndon, looking further ahead we can’t see the situation getting any better. To save any further disruption to the League we have reached this decision at the first opportunity.
Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience to both the League committee and the member clubs.

Unfortunately Flexys have had to withdraw from League Division 1 of the Saturday League due to a lack of players, therefore all their fixtures have been changed to a bye.
The venues for the Prelims of the WG Roberts Cup have now been set, also please ensure all players are registered for all games by 5-30pm the day before the matches, go to the Cup fixtures tab to view.
There are more entries for the WG Cup than there have been for many years requiring 12 preliminary games to be played of which is great news seeing as the proceeds of this competition go to local charities, please note that the prelims for this cup is a 6pm start on the 24th April.
Again the entries for the Cyril Adams County Cup have increased, and there will be some thought going into ways of increasing the entries even more in future seasons.
