Hello to everyone and welcome to the Stamford and district bowls league 2021?

My name is Pete Linnell and I play for Blackstone’s D team. A lot of you might already know me from the higher divisions and competitions in the Stamford League. I have now taken over from Maggie & Dennis as League secretary.

Before I start putting a few things together I would like to take this opportunity to thank Maggie and Dennis for all they have done in the past years for the league. I suspect that many of you would have thanked them both privately for their hard work.

Nina sent an email asking teams to enter the League. I would like to thank all of you who responded to the email. The result is that we now have 12 teams in each division which I have now closed for any more to enter. The committee decided to try and run the League for this year with only 2 divisions. Government permitting the League will hopefully start on the 4th June 2021.

At the moment, I am not going to continue with the best player this year, reason being as it’s my first season I am just going to get used to the system.  Next year we will be back to normal and with 3 divisions. I wiil be sending my email address and phone number to the club Secretarys and Captains.
