S&D Think Again - Men's Combination Team Will Be Promoted
It is with great pleasure that I can report, that following intervention from our S&D representative, John Sherrington, the S&D Committee have reversed their original decision and have afforded Lockswood the Promotion earned last season. John and Club Captain Murray Gorman offered an alternative solution, which has been considered and accepted by S&D Executive Committee.
Following the decision, the S&D Combination for the 2018 season, will see, eight teams in Division One, seven in Divisions two and three and six in Division four. As a result the Combination Fixtures previously published are now void (our calendar and website updated) and new fixtures will be announced asap.
Our thanks to John and Murray and to the S&D Executive for their swift and positive response.
Pens At The Ready
If any members wish to be considered to play in this year's leagues, please sign up as soon as possible on the relevant forms.
Men's S&D Leagues - sign up in Men's changing rooms.

On the subject of the G&F, the Silver Team is still looking for a Captain, if no volunteer is forthcoming before the fixtures are organised at the start of February, the Club will have no alternative but to withdraw the team.
