A third member club  will be fined £50 for withdrawing a team from the League after the March executive meeting deadline.

Donnington Wood have pulled out of the Saturday division, leaving it with just seven teams and a bye.
Their exit left Trench without a fixture on opening day and now League officials will have a look at the programme for the remaining Saturday teams.

Donnington secretary Graham Walters explained: "Donnington's players have informed me that they wish to withdraw the Saturday team.

"I'm sorry about this - I did ask at our AGM if they were certain that they wished to enter a side, but now nobody can play on Saturdays."

Sir John Bayley (Thursday divison) and Maddocks (Mondays) already face £50 fines for late team withdrawals after a rule change passed at this year's AGM
