Item 3 – Cup Matches.

    When a player is tied to a higher team, that player can still play for his nominated team in any cup matches.

    • Proposer: Dave Barnett Seconder: John Thompson

Item 4 – League Rules Amendments.

    After another year of the league running almost smoothly, there have been some areas of the rules that need to be addressed to achieve a greater consistency. This will be explained in more detail at the AGM by the league secretary.

    • Proposer: John Thompson Seconder: Dave Barnett

Item 5 – Ladies Leagues Teams A&B etc;

    Please consider the negative effect it has on weaker/smaller teams to have an A and B team of similar standards (players 1,3, 5,7,9 on A and 2,4,6,8, 10 on B). It is very demoralising playing two top teams (per big club) that are so evenly matched. We would propose that the normal rules of ranking all the clubs players, then allocating to top team, the second team etc be resumed.
