The Cheadle and Gatley District Bowling League exists to promote Crown Green Bowling in its area. This area nowadays extends beyond the old Cheadle and Gatley Urban District, and includes Stockport, South Manchester and parts of North-east Cheshire.
See the green finder for a list of clubs and links to maps showing where they are.
We run a league for teams playing on Tuesday evenings and a veterans’ league (for the over 60) playing on Wednesday afternoons. The evening league currently has three divisions, and the veterans’ league has six divisions. Ideally there are ten teams in each division (18 matches), but it is sometimes necessary to go to eleven or twelve teams.
The evening teams consist of ten players each and the veterans play in teams of eight. The leagues are decided on aggregate points scored.
We also run knock-out cup competitions for each league - the evening teams play for the Bob Newlan Memorial Trophy and the veterans play for the P.C.S. Cup. Each league has an individual Merit competition.
The current rules were adopted at the AGM in 2003; there have been minor changes since.
For more information about the league, please contact the secretary, by e-mail.
Owing to a trangession of Rule 3.5 we have extended the competition by a week.
Northen Etchells v Poynton WMC will now be played on the 18th September at Vernon Park.
Winners of the above v Nursery A will now be played on the 25th September at Victoria BC.

Yes it is me,back from the dark places, not fully fit. so I will not be bowling for a good number of weeks, but I am able to deal with all the admin.
Must put my thanks on record for the help received from John Mobbs
Final touches for the start of the 2019 season.
Edgeley (Edgeley Cons) I believe have withdrawn from the league, this as not been confirmed. This makes all their matches become open dates - sorry.
No special arrangements over the return of completed Match Sheets (old or other leagues) this season, all that I request is that I can read them and transfer the information to form correct Records. You can send them to my home I have a daily some days more often family service from home to wherever I may be, Email direct to me which is the fastest or any other means as long as i can read them.
Invoices are attached.
That is all for now

Page for Veterans' PCS Cup draw and venues, You will find a type setting error, Round 2 August 7th, Round 3 4th September and Round 4 11th September all want moving one column to the right and 'Round 5' wording deleting. Information/Wording in the draw columns I have also now found errors, so I have reprinted the page.
To add to the problem further Mr John Mobbs our new Veterans Match Secretary as two errors in his address he lives in Heaton Norris not Chapel with a corrected post code of SK4 1LJ.

There has been some reorganisation of the web site. For information about the Cheadle and Gatley league the best entry point is:
The basic URL (www.cgleague.co.uk) now takes to you a links page, from where you can access all the leagues on this site.
Following internet best practice, the whole site is now also provided over an encrypted connection (you should see a green padlock near the top of the browser).(Thursday 20 July 2017)
