COVID Update on behalf of The Wrexham Bowling League as to when Bowling might/hopefully resume in 2021
Firstly it is down to the Government and Councils, then the BCGBA then the WCGBA as to whether the Area Committee can allow Bowling to go ahead.
It is with great sadness to announce that Neil Carr from Bradley bowling club has passed away.
It is with great sadness to announce that Harry Kettle (Farndon) has passed away on Monday 11th January 2021
It is with great sadness to announce that Norman Rogers (Gresford Colliery/Rhos) has passed away on Friday 15th January 2021 he was 83
It is with great sadness to announce the passing of Norma Humphreys who played bowls for Castell Alun.
Norma caught Covid and was admitted into hospital on Christmas day then she developed pneumonia and sadly passed away, our thoughts go out to Norma`s family and friends at this very sad time
It is sad to announce that Alan Dobbins (Gate, formerly of the Miners) has passed away in hospital of Pneumonia on Monday 4th January 2021 Alan was 70 years old.
It has been decided to postpone the AGM that was due to take place in December, hopefully it will be held in the New Year.
No league or area fees will be payable for 2020 the same applies to the fixture books sent out, but the score cards will be chargeable but not payable until next season.
Something "interesting" (a clue to the author!) to read below
The link above will take you to the Wrexham Area bowls web site where details draws etc. of the Cyril Adams (Wrexham League County Cup) and Dewi Jones (Wrexham Veterans League County Cup) can be found, (once the draws have been made) the password to enter the results will be the same as the Saturday League passwords.
All the players and teams who have previously played in either the Cyril Adams or Dewi Jones Cup have been transferred over to the new site, but if your club is playing in either of these competitions please check that your players are registered to play.
The WG Roberts and League Cup draws can now be viewed via the left hand side of the page.
At the AGM of 2019 A proposal from Bersham BC was passed by member clubs for a trial period as follows :-
If the LOWEST team from a Club with more than one team were short of a player then a player would be allowed to play twice.
The team that is short of a player would place 2 of their cards face down with the names of the players that were prepared to play twice.
The opposing team would then pick one of these cards to replace the missing players.
If a team were short of 2 players then 3 cards must be placed face down.
They would only be allowed to play a maximum of two players twice per match and for each player that played twice their score would count towards the team aggregate but 6 chalks would be deducted for each player that played twice. This is to try and avoid a player turning up expecting to play a game but ends up receiving a Walk Over
The 6 point reduction will automatically be applied once the match result has been entered onto the web site.
This system has been trialled in a couple of leagues already and in the Malpas League last year it avoided 8 walkovers, and in the Whitchurch League it avoided 77 walkovers.

PLEASE LET THE LEAGUE SECRETARY KNOW IF YOUR GAME WAS CANCELLED AND THE FIXTURE SECRETARY WHEN YOU KNOW THE RE-ARRANGED DATE.
PLEASE BE MINDFUL OF THE BELOW RULE, IT IS THERE BECAUSE OF THE TIMELINE TO GET THE REPORTS INTO THE LEADER
RULE 20 Clubs must enter the results onto the web site within 24 hours of completion of the match. Clubs failing to get the results in on time will be fined £10.00 for each and every occasion.
Rule amended at AGM on 10.10.2015
The Burton cup was the second most prestigious cup in Wales after the Welsh Senior Merit and has been played for since 1930 all be it there are some gaps in the records, it is not known whether it was played for in those years or the cup just wasn't engraved, if anyone has any knowledge of those years please let us know, the new tab for the winners is on the left hand side at the bottom.
For your interest Allan Taylor who plays for Ruabon and has been involved with bowls for many years has taken over Charisma Trophies in Yorke Streeet in Wrexham, and has subsequently introduced Crown Green Bowls and bowling accessories to the existing range of products and services already provided.'Allan is now taking bowls in that want testing/polishing laquering etc. to Premier Bowls, Do not leave it to late if you want your bowls back in plenty of time for the start of the season'
Obviously it is still early days and he is only now starting to increase stock levels including Taylors and Drakes Pride product ranges.
Allan has asked if we can let local Wrexham clubs know they now have an outlet in Town that they can call into at any time, but also more importantly can drop off their bowls, jacks etc for refurbishment at the end of the season, rather than having to make the long trek to Stockport on an individual basis.
