Regional Divisions Re-organisation

Comments have been received by the League Committee as to whether travelling could be reduced.

A possible contribution to this would be the abolition of Regional League 2nd Divisions. Such divisions were originally set up to ease the merger which established a fully Open League.

The League would be grateful therefore if members, particularly those in Regional 2s but not limited to those, would give any comments they may have to their relevant League Secretary.
