First Division League Table.

Following a committee meeting on 1st October, Rudheath will have all their results removed from the 1st Division. This is due to them not being able to complete their fixtures within the appropriate time (rule M7).
The removal will be done on the website once the Team KO is completed and entered. All teams will then have played the same number of games (19) and the season can close.

Jid - On behalf of the KBL Management Committee.

KBL 2022 AGM - Summary

KBL – AGM 2022 Summary.

A brief summary of key points from the KBL AGM held last Monday.

1.     Our Chairman Mr Tony Davies has decided to stand down and pass over the chair to someone younger. I am pleased to announce that Mr Robert Eaton is now the Chairman of the KBL. Tony will remain on the management committee. The vice chair position will be taken by Mr Ray Brandreth.

2.      Rule Changes – There were three proposed changes to the rules.
1. The league be opened to lady members. The resulting vote rejected this change.

2. At the AGM votes are, one vote per club. Rule change from CLUB to TEAM was submitted. The resulting vote rejected this change.

3. The temporary rule where players can play twice has been extended to the 2022 season with a minor change. “Players playing twice have to be drawn at random from the first four blocks” The resulting vote passed this change.

I would also like to mention this rule DOES NOT apply to the Team KO; it is for league matches only.

3.    I would also like to welcome Goostrey BC back into the league after their application to join was accepted.

Fixtures are currently being compiled and should be available on the website soon.
