The league has received 53 entries to the Open League which is one less then last year as Wurzels have not entered.
The Ladies League has 12 entries which is one less than last year as Colli-Cats have not entered.
Both Wurzels and Colli-Cats have been members of the D&DSL for many years and will be sadly missed.
This means that we have three spaces in the Open League and two in the Ladies League, if anyone knows of any possibility of getting a new team to enter the league please could they contact Brian Newton ASAP, our AGM is on Friday 21st June.

These, amongst others, include the suspension of the restriction on the night of play and an invitation to the ladies teams to enter the Open KO Cup. To this extent we would ask that any Ladies team wishing to enter the Open KO cup confirm their interest when returning their entry form.
