All opening day league fixtures are cancelled, the only games that will be played are Lancashire Sunday Trophy games. There will now be a Special General Meeting of the league on Tuesday 8th September 8.15pm prompt at Rochdale Catholic Club. The meeting will be held to determine once and for all the league formation for the coming season. After numerous attempts by the committee to finalise the formation and following a vote at the last league meeting, clubs are still not happy and are still complaining. As a committee we feel we have done everything in our power to try and accommodate requests from all clubs and to try and make the divisions as fair and competitive as possible. So far it has proved an impossible task to keep everyone happy, so now it is time for the clubs to decide.
ALL CLUBS MUST have a representative at the meeting, if you do not attend you will not have a say on what division you are placed in and you WILL be fined £25 without exception. We are extremely disappointed that we have had to take this extraordinary step but feel we have no other choice as ultimately we are here to provide amateur football in the area, and we want this league to be run in a fair and organised manner that the clubs are happy with. IT'S YOUR LEAGUE, you MUST attend this meeting and have your say or accept the consequences !
