Champions Exit Dennis Lewis Thursday Division

There will be the ideal number of 14 teams competing in the Dennis Lewis Thursday Division in the 2018 season.

That is the result of the sad news that reigning champios Sir John Bayley have been forced to withdraw today (SUN) due to a lack of committed bowlers.
Bayley spokesman Rob Burroughs confirmed: "We will have to pull out of a Thursday as I only have 4 players at moment to play - and 2 or them can’t play every week.

"At least it makes the league season easier for those still involved."

So the 14 teams remaining, having been faced with three Wednesday night games in September to cater for 15 teams taking part, can now look forward to a much simple programme - with only one Wednesday fixture due to England's World Cup football group game on Thursday 28th June!
