Message from the League Secretary

Hello Everyone,

With the recent news on a new Covid variant being identified and with only this week and the cup week left before Christmas I would just like to remind teams to be careful over the next few matches and to use any hand sanitisers provided and to be as careful as possible with social distancing when playing your games. If you all do your bit to help keep the pubs open and the league ongoing over the next few months that would be very helpful. It would be a shame if more restrictions may be brought in so please keep safe and well.

Safe skittling,

Brian
