BDCL Entry Considerations

1.       Our entitlement based on 2019/20 finishing positions is for a team in each of Divisions 1, 2, 4 and 5. If clubs reduce their number of teams the default position is that their lowest teams are withdrawn, except where loss of specific players can justify removal of different teams. Players registered for Halesowen in 19/20 were as follows (players not playing in 21/22 shown in bold, players in red undecided, players in blue not replied)

a.       Div 1 Finlay, Stewart, Nick, John, Malcolm, Dustin

b.      Div 2 Dale, Manvith, Mike, Adrian, Mark, Andy, Bob

c.       Div 4 Tony S, Paul E, Don, Logan, Richard, Pete, Silas

d.      Div 5 Dave E, Chris L, Tony T, Paul T, Ravi, Martyn, Chris H, Joyce, John W

 

2.       For 2021/22 the bottom two divisions will consist of 4-player teams
