Welcome to Aughton & District Bowling League.
PLEASE NOTE:- UNDER THE CURRENT RESTRICTIONS IT IS NOT POSSIBLE FOR THE LEAGUE TO HOLD AN AGM AS USUAL IN FEBRUARY 2021.
The Committee will continue to manage the league on your behalf
We have today (4-3-21) received an update from Sport England on the easing of restrictions on organised grassroot outdoor sports in England, scheduled to resume on March 29th.
They are still waiting for the overarching guidance from the Cabinet Office and the sport specific guidance that is likely to be released ahead of 29th March. Unfortunately, they do not expect a more specific sport/activity related guidance to be released for a couple of weeks.
From Hilda Jones, Chair LCCGBA
"Hello bowlers are we all ready for the bowling season, we think it looks promising, although there may be changes and adaptions to be made which I am sure you will agree whatever they are they will be a small sacrifice for a seasons bowling. By the end of April, most Vets will have had two doses of vaccine and many of the younger and fitter people will have had one dose which will be a big step forward. Taking this as a positive step league and fixture secretary have a lot of work to do so we need to be positive and prepare to help. It’s very doubtful that any meetings will be held before the start of bowling so we must adapt. Captains can ring their team members and check if their members want to play – check so far have been positive – maybe some teams will be lost or even clubs may need to amalgamate, its vital that the fixtures secretaries have this information as soon as possible as they will have twice as much work this time The secretaries may have to juggle with the divisions as the season my be slightly shorter which could result in more divisions. The world is changing and we will have to change with it. All fees due to the league will have to be paid directly into the league bank account; the easiest way is by BACS using your club name as a reference. Please do not say ‘we can’t do it’, someone in your club/team will be able to do it. Let us be positive and move forward together – we do not need any negative vibes – Please support your leagues it will be to late for them to do the work if we leave it much longer. Happy Bowling.
There are 15 teams in two divisions, 1st Division of 8 teams and 2nd Division of 7 teams. + 1 BYE
If any club/team want to join the league for 2021 please contact the Secretary firstname.lastname@example.org
