Late Blow For Fridays

posted Apr 3, 2017, 12:10 PM by Malcolm Fletcher
The League has suffered a champion blow on the eve of the 2017 season.

Club delegates will be told at the April management meeting on Tuesday the 4th that Sir John Bayley have been forced to withdraw their new C team from division three.

The Wellington club won three division titles last year and had attracted new signings, but decided at the 11th hour that they would not be able to field 48 bowlers in four teams- including their Premier one - on Friday nights.

Delegates will decide what to do with the third division fixture schedule ahead of opening night on Friday the 7th - and what punishment Bayley should face for withdrawing after the deadline.

League and BCGBA handbooks will be available for collection from 7pm on meeting night and the agenda includes application of the new Code of Conduct.
