League Admin note


I have today added the draft minutes from the AGM as a sub heading to the main menu option AGM Paperwork - 2022.

I've also been asked for a results sheet by some teams, it is optional if you want to use this, but if you do it can be accessed from the main menu - 'Match Result Sheet - from 2022' and can be printed from there.

I've created an e-mail group which should include all the club secretaries and team captains (or their nominated alternate) and sent out an e-mail to this group today.  If you didn't receive an e-mail and think you should have then please let me know. 





Wed Apr 20th

Mick Mularkey sadly passed away recently. He will be a sadly missed member of the Lea Hall Club

David Beynon


Mon Apr 4th

Lichfield Bowling Club

I'm pleased to say the issue at Lichfield BC is now resolved and they are ok to play.  As such they will be in the 4 Home/4 Away.  If there had been 10 teams when I did the draw game 8 wouldn't have been a bye so in agreement with Chase Terrace they will play in that prelim game.  The website has been updated with these details.





Fri Apr 1st

Hi all

The League fixtures are now available.  The league matches will start on  28th April, with the Home/Away games starting on 14th April. 

For those of you who aren’t aware Dave has had an accident and is out of action for a while.  We all wish him well with his recovery.  We plan to hold the merits and details of these will follow, when he can sort them, please keep a check on the website for details. 

Lichfield BC have recently been suspended from playing in leagues by SCBA.  We are hoping that this won’t be a long suspension and so have left them in the league fixtures, but, in agreement with their captain, have not put them in the Home/Away competition.  Hopefully this issue will be resolved before the start of the league but if you are in Division 2 with them please check the website for more details at the beginning of the season.

Over the next few days I will be updating the team details on the site.  So again for details of whether or not your opponents are doing refreshments please check closer to the game time.

Just a reminder the main changes from the AGM are that the individual matches are now 8 games rather than 10.  If at an evening your teams have spare players then please give them the option to have a friendly game during the evening, however decide on the match games at the beginning.

All players must be registered and no players can play twice in one evening.

The home/away competition numbers reflect the change in the numbers in the league games so this is now 4 home and 4 away.

The standard evening start time is 6.30, however this can be changed, either earlier or later, if both team captains agree.

I have been asked for a paper results record – we won’t be doing the pre-printed cards that George used to produce but I will put a template form on the website for those of you that wish to use it.

Please put your results on the website by the Monday after the game, I will aim to lock them on the Tuesday, any changes after this will need to be sent to me.

Any issues or concerns please get in touch with me, by e-mail preferably, if not by text and my details are at the top of the screen.  Please remember that I work and so can’t always respond straight away.

I hope you have an enjoyable summer of bowling.

Best wishes

AGM Date

I have sent the following e-mail to all club contacts this morning - if you haven't received it then please contact me on


The general feeling is that clubs are happy to have a physical AGM this year.  Therefore I have booked Heath Hayes Cons Club on Wednesday 16th March from 7 for a 7.30 meeting start.

If you have any items for the agenda can you send them to me by Wednesday 9th February.  I will then send out an agenda hopefully by the 20th February.  As with these e-mails the agenda will also go on the website.

If you are one of the clubs who don't want to attend a physical AGM then please simply respond to the agenda with any points you want raised and any votes and I will read these out at the AGM.

No decisions can be made about the format of the league until the AGM, therefore I will allow clubs a week after the AGM date to confirm what teams they are entering in the league this year, if they aren't able to do so at the meeting, which will take us to the 23rd March. I will then sort out the league fixtures on the website.  I will aim to have these done by 30th March.

If you haven't already replied to my first e-mail can you please just to confirm the information is getting to your club.

Best wishes


Mon Jan 24th

I have just sent out the following e-mail to the contacts I have listed.  If you haven't received it and should have then can you e-mail me your details including club to




Happy New Year everyone.  I'm sending this to you as the contact for your club's team in the Cannock league.  If I have this wrong please let me know and if you have the new contact details either please forward this e-mail to them or send me the details.

Can I ask you to confirm whether or not your club would be happy to send a representative to an physical AGM or not please?

We need to decide whether or not we will hold a physical meeting or whether it would be better to have one more year managing by using an e-mail questionnaire.

Please respond asap but by 31st January at the latest.
