Frodsham VC

We are pleased to welcome Frodsham into the league – a new team to the MVL.  They have joined Mens Div 2 as a replacement for Wirral Boys who recently had to withdraw.

Can all teams please try to arrange fixtures with Frodsham ASAP, and inform the league fixture secretary of the dates.

Note that their home venue is unlikely to be available in the short term, so it would be appreciated if games could be arranged as double headers, or both home and away matches at the other team’s venue.

Wirral Boys Withdrawal

Unfortunately Wirral Boys have had to withdraw from the league.

We are currently exploring the possibility of admitting a new team to the league as a replacement.  A decision will be made later this week.
