The Sale and District Bowling League was founded in 1949 (first season was 1950), initially for teams within two miles of Sale Town Hall.

We currently run two divisions, playing on Wednesday evenings.There are also knock-out competitions for each division, an individual Merit competition and a pairs competition.

Cringlewood resignation

Following Cringlewood's late resignation, there have been some changes to the details published in the fixture cards. The web site shows the current state.

The fixture changes are:

All matches scheduled against Cringlewood are cancelled

The following matches are cancelled:
29 May    United Services    v    Trinity
3 July    Longford Park    v    Trinity
(clubs could play these as friendlies, but they won't count in the league)

The following matches are added:
22 May    Legh Arms    v    Trinity
31 July    Fallowfield    v    Trinity
7 August    Longford Park    v    Sale Cons
7 August    United Services    v    Beech House

Cringlewood had a bye in the Pride of Sale competition, which would have meant a team reacing the semi-finals without playing. We have therefore decided to do a complete new draw. The semi-finals will be at Beech House and Fallowfield, unless these teams both reach the semi-finals.

The final day of the Sale Merit will now be at Brooklands.

Season 2019

Following the resignation of Quarry Bank, the league has been restructured as one division of 13 teams. This involves a rather complicated set of fixtures.

All teams will play 16 matches - eight at home and eight away. You will play all the other twelve teams once, and four teams a second time. The teams that you play twice are the ones that finished in similar positions last year.

BCGBA rules revision

The BCGBA rules revision meeting was on 19 January. The proposal to introduce a £1 per player levy was defeated. However the club levy will increase by £5 (to £30) for 2019 and by a further £5 next year.

You will look in vain for information about this on the BCGBA web site. There is a summary of the decisions on the Greater Manchester site.

Honours boards

There is a new web page available (at www.cgleague.co.uk/sale/honours.php). It shows all the history I have been able to gather. You can view the winners of a competition, or in a season. You can also search for a club: this will show the club's successes in team competitions as well as the triumphs of its members in individual competitions.
