actions speak louder than any words but a written record of

continuing inspiration to us all.

AS the current season draws to a close, we look

forward to some important changes, which are

intended to make some of the county

competitions more accessible to our members, in

the new season. The most significant of these is

that the County Closed Teams has now been made knockout

throughout and we expect that eliminating the need to play in

a qualifying round will enable a larger number of teams to

compete.

In the County League, there was an increase in the number

of teams playing in the No-Fear divisions, which have proved

extremely popular, last season. As more teams choose to play

their matches in the daytime rather than the evening, we

expect that the number of teams entering this very sociable

and enjoyable series of matches will continue.
