Sorry folks my mistake, I stand corrected.

Quote from the committee meeting 31st March:-

"  6. What happens if a club can’t field 8 players? When approached, all clubs agreed that they could field a team of 8. If we start to alter this and make allowances, then the system is open to abuse. Matches will be forfeited if a team is short of players."

If a player plays twice to make up the team they are shown as “UNLISTED” for their second game.

This gives the team the score but not the player otherwise their average would be affected.

This is for this year only and is not to be relied upon.

Unfortunately there are now 4 byes in division 4 due to another team having to withdraw.

I have looked at the possibility of re-scheduling division 4 to make it shorter and eliminate the byes.

This is not possible as all the teams share their green with teams in other divisions thereby disrupting the whole league.

Brian Girling.

My apologies to the teams involved I omitted to change Armitage with Handsacre to a bye due to their withdrawal from the league. I was tied up with personal matters and overlooked it.
