Unfortunately Lymm Club conceded their 3rd team game in the Bowl but played their 4th team game in the Plate. This is an Infringement of Rules. Lymm 4th team will now be removed from the Plate Competition and Ellesmere Port 2nd Team will be entered in the next round.

Rules of the North West Leagues.
Rule 13 --Again
Ladies and Gentlemen, Two of our Association Referees arrived at Clubs yesterday to find the game was off. In one case no communication and we have received an apology. The second one had apparently been left with a text message or E Mail, really not satisfactory. Could all ensure that when these situations occur - i.e. games off - that our Referees are contacted by telephone where it can be certain that the correct information has been transmitted and received. F.S.
Updated Disciplinary Records for the Leagues.
Man Off !!!
Ladies/Gents, Please note - an incident again yesterday - a game moving to an un-contested scrummage in The North West Leagues does not mean a player has to leave the field !!! Please note our Referees, no removal of a player to be enforced !!! F.S.
