At the clubs meeting 24th March 2016 a Presentation was made of the leagues intentions for 2016/17 and it was decided by all of those in attendance, that the responsibility for rearranging postponed games would be returned to the fixtures secretary. This will come into effect for the new season and should make it easier to catch up games which are missing. Further details will be given in the August clubs meeting.
Thank you for your support and understanding as ever,
