Maddocks Monday Misery

The League has suffered a second late blow with the withdrawal of another team after the March executive meeting deadline.

Maddocks B have pulled out division five on Monday nights, leaving it with 10 teams and more byes.

Bob Llewelyn, secretary of Maddocks BC, said: "Unfortunately, for a number of reasons, we haven't enough bowlers to field a Monday night team this year.  I apologise for the inconvenience this will cause."

The Oakengates club face a £50 fine for the late withdrawal following rule changes made at the 2018 AGM.

And fifth division teams may now wish to change their minds and have an eight-a-side knockout to make up for the byes - a decision they will be asked to make at the League's April meeting on Tuesday the 3rd . . .
