Balancing of Sections


Due to the decision of Plodder Lane to leave the League, the Management Committee decided to balance the league so that nine teams are in each section. As a consequence, Railway ‘B’ have been relegated from Section ‘A’ to Section ‘B’, and BCC Booths ‘B’ relegated from Section ‘B’ to Section ‘C’. At the same time Bar Lane ‘D’ and Eagley Park ‘A’ are promoted from Section ‘B’ to Section ‘A’ and Ellesmere ‘A’ and Mytham Park are promoted from Section ‘C’ to Section ‘B’. These were confirmed by Denver Beckett at the AGM last night. As a consequence, the three Sections of the Mills Bowling League for the 2019 season will be as below
