**AGM REPORT 2019**

The AGM took place on Thursday 28th February at The Village Inn, Marehay.

Out of the thirty three teams that finished the 2018 League Season the only teams absent were the Carnfield Club, the Heanor Labour Club and the Westhouses Social Club.

The remaining thirty clubs were all present and were joined by five new teams to increase the size of the League to 35 clubs. The new clubs joining the league are the Olde English Gentleman (Somercotes), Sir Barnes Wallis (Ripley), Mansfield Hosiery Mills (Huthwaite), Three Horse Shoes (Ripley) and the Ginger Giraffe the first ever Micro Pub to join the league from Underwood.

Some teams will be playing from different pubs this year. The Out of Town has closed and the team will be playing from the George as George A, with the existing George team being the George B. The French Horn at Codnor are playing from the Codnor Inn. The Gate at Swanwick have relocated to play as the Red Lion B at Riddings and the Eclipse at Loscoe are now playing at the Gate (Loscoe).

The League will therefore run two divisions of twelve and one division of eleven. However the League would be happy to accept one more team into the league to make three divisions of twelve. Any new club should contact the secretary on as soon as possible.

A rule change that the three pins awarded for up to two missing players, is to be extended to Division One as well as in Division Two was passed. However a further extension to include the Premier Division was not.

The existing committee was revoted in en bloc.

The league season was confirmed as starting on Tuesday April 9th and there is a Pre-Season Meeting where all clubs are to collect their league fixtures, documentation and all other administration details was announced to take place at the Alfreton Town Supporters Club on North Steet, Alfreton on Thursday 14th March. All Clubs must attend this meeting.

JB Transport remain as the league’s main sponsor, but Exhaust Products Ltd have been announced as a new sponsor for the Cup Competitions and the league meetings will this year be sponsored by Alfreton Town Supporters Club. More details will appear on this website shortly.
