Heath Hayes called off their game with Broomfield last Monday. This has broken rule 15 which states:
“ Fixture dates to be agreed at the AGM. Matches to be played on Monday evening unless a game has been brought forward. Games to commence at 7.00pm. Clubs can mutually an earlier or later start time if they wish. All matches must be played on the agreed fixture dates unless BCGBA, WWCBA, SCGBA, DCGBA, NMCBA or SCBA fixtures or bereavement or inclement weather cause a postponement.”
The unanimous decision of the Committee that, in accordance with rule 15, the following penalty is imposed on Heath Hayes Bowling Club:-
“ Any team failing to arrive for a fixture will be docked EIGHT points and fined £50. The home team will be awarded the game 10-0 with an aggregate score of 21-11 per player (168-88). A team who turn up without eight players lose each game 0-21.”
Broomfield will receive a 10-0 win and this will be reflected in the table over the next couple of days, along with the points deduction for Heath Hayes.
