League Rule Clarification
The Committee have decided unanimously that if a cancelled league match is re-arranged and then played either in the SAME playing week as it is detailed in the fixtures OR earlier, then League Rule 12 shall not apply with regards to that match counting as the free cancellation or subsequent cancellation of which a 1 point penalty would be applicable. This is because playing in the same week or earlier does not affect the league table standings or cause disruption to the fixtures.

Should you wish to discuss any of the above, then please contact the League Secretary, Peter Saville in the first instance via email swdsl@live.co.uk.

Yours in sport,

The Committee
