04 Sep 2018**ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING - 03/09/18 & LEAGUE RULES UPDATED**

Thank you to all those who attended the AGM last night.
It was still a good turnout (47 clubs) if not quite as good as last year (50).
Club reps who attended collected scorebooks for all teams from their clubs (& in some cases others). Those who haven't collected their scorebooks will now have to do so from Bob Patterson.
RULE CHANGES - 4 AMENDMENTS WERE AGREED BY THOSE AT LAST NIGHT's MEETING.
IN SUMMARY THEY WERE-
1. HOME TEAM RULES - Rule 5 was amended to delete reference to 'lady players / visitors' and deflect the LBSO from any kind of club rule which is discriminatory in any way.
2. LEAGUE TABLES - TEAMS ON SAME POINTS - Rule 12 amended to retain, change and clarify the exisitng 3 clauses and add a fourth.
**PLEASE NOTE, THE EXISTING WORDING AT THE FOOT OF EACH LEAGUE TABLE MAY NOT CHANGE FOR A WHILE!**
3. RULE 13 - TEAMS RELEGATED - an additional sentence to clarify what has always been the case, that the number of teams to be relegated from any division may not be the same as the number promoted - 3.
4. COMPETITION RULE - UNDER 18's - clarification that where clubs dont allow under 18's and ties have to be arranged for neutral or the opponents venue, this applies to both legs of a 2-legged semi-final, now played home & away.

A FULL UPDATED VERSION OF THE LEAGUE RULES WITH AMENDMENTS CAN NOW BE VIEWED ON THE WEBSITE - "About Us / Documents".
