Happy Easter vintage sign with eggs on white background 8 eps

There’s less than a week to go before the first League fixtures of the new 2024 season.

But, before then, the League’s officers would like to wish all of its bowlers, friends and clubs a happy, healthy and peaceful Easter.

The new campaign opens with first matches in the Afternoon Division and the Dennis Lewis Division taking place on Thursday 4th April.

In the afternoon reigning champions Donnington Wood entertain divisional newcomers St Georges in a 6-a-side match while in the evening it is Sinclair who have the tough task of heading to Shrewsbury to take on 2023 title winners Castlefields in the 8-a-side division with its unique points scoring system.

Action in the main Friday divisions starts on 19th April while Monday night sides return to action on 8th April.

And League chiefs are still hoping to re-launch the Saturday Division this season with matches of 4 singles-2 doubles that mean a minimum of just 4 bowlers is required to fulfil fixtures that start at 2pm.

This division has been in cold storage since the 2019 campaign due to the pandemic, but already 6 potential teams from 5 clubs – Allscott Heath, Charlton, Donnington Wood, Wrockwardine Wood and Worfield – have expressed an interest.

A final decision will be made at the League’s April meeting on Tuesday the 2nd.
