I have just been informed that the results cannot be put onto the web by using "Apple" products such as iPhone or iPad.

You can only use Windows based products.

Anyone with a problem with this just send me the match card by e-mail or any other form and I will put it onto the web myself.


The Annual General Meeting took place on Wednesday 20th June 2012 at Tetley Walkers Club and the following teams failed to attend :- Culcheth Legion, Eagle Sports, G.T.B.L. "A", G.T.B.L. "B", Woolston "C".

All these teams are fined £50.00 and will be deemed to have resigned from the League as per Rule 3 (a).

The Chairman opened the meeting and thanked everybody for attending.

Because of apologies from the outgoing Fixture Secretary and the Treasurer there was no report from them.

The Competition Secretary thanked the clubs for last season with regard to results coming back and hoped that it will continue next season.

Because J.Robinson had resigned as Fixture Secretary E.Addison was asked to do the job again which was agreed by the meeting.

The other officers were re-elected.

The Rule changes were then discussed.

Rule 17 (b) as per the handbook was abolished and a new Rule 17 (b) was put in instead both after a vote.

New Rule 19 (i) was discussed at some length by the meeting but after a vote this was rejected and everything will carry on as normal.

The change of format for the Pairs Competition was discussed but again after a vote it was decided to continue with the existing format.

In Any Other Business the meeting was told that there had been an application from a team from Patricroft to join our League but because of the distances involved it wasn't feasible.

A seminar for people wishing to become a referee was mentioned and the members were asked to gauge interest in time for the next meeting.

B.Babington asked why a new team wasn't put in the highest division particularly if the new team is a strong one but again the meeting was told that teams could only be placed where there was a vacancy in  a division or complications could arise with a team not being promoted.

The Chairman closed the Meeting and reminded everybody that the next Meeting will be on Monday 6th August 2012 when the resgistration forms must be returned. 


The Annual General Meeting will take place on Wednesday 20th June 2012 at Tetley Walkers Club at 7.30pm.

All teams wishing to play next season must attend this meeting or a fine of £50.00 will be incurred.
