Its with great sadness that the league learns of the death of John Richardson. John played in the league for many years and was Chairman of the league from 1996 to 2009. Our thoughts are with his family and Linton CC at this very sad time.

The league has decided that in the interests of all clubs with the current weather situation that the league games scheduled for April 25th will now be switched to May 23rd. This is for all divisions. The league will now start on May 2nd. This now means that in the cup 1st round if the game is not played due to poor weather on May 9th it has to be replayed on either TUESDAY 15th or 22nd . The date for the rearranged cup game has to be confirmed to the Secretary by Friday May 11th or it will automatically be set for Tuesday 15th . A result has to be made on the replay date either by bowl off or toss of coin. Start times are now as follows games on May 2nd 6.00pm and from the 9th onwards 6.30 pm start.
The league is pleased to announce the new President of the League is Mick Ketteridge. He succeeds Alan Bishop who has stepped down from the role after 17 years. Mick played in the league for Horseheath for over 40 years.

After a close fought battle with Haverhill 1, Fulbourn CC managed to prevail winning the Division 1 title by just 1 point.
With both teams winning, losing and having the same number of non-results it came down to a single bonus point to split them in the end.
Congratulations to Fulbourn.
