A message from the Chairman

1st July 2020
Lots of changes to Lockdown are happening at the moment. This is encouraging but none of them promise to make the reopening of clubs feasible at present. The Executive have therefore decided this is not the time to announce positive plans for a restart.

We will continue to monitor the situation, and meanwhile once again hope that you all keep safe and well

1st June 2020
Friday June 5th June is almost upon us - the date for the Fylde League AGM. Of course it will not happen on that date as most of the Agenda concerns the season’s results and the League structure for the new season.

Fortunately the 2019/2020 season was almost complete, but there are some promotion and relegation issues to be decided, the Division 1 Championship is still open and the Wainwright Cup not played. The Executive have discussed possible solutions but until clubs are able to select teams of 8 players and stage matches we are not able to move forward.

As I write the Lockdown situation is changing very rapidly, but it is uncertain when the League could restart and the number of clubs and teams which will be ready to play.

Many players now play on line but none of the options reflect the strengths of the Fylde League in providing competitive teams bridge for all levels of players. Future plans will be circulated as soon as feasible and clubs will be able to make proposals and vote at an AGM.

Sadly some club members have passed away over the last few months and we will miss these bridge friends when we are able to meet again.

The Executive and myself hope you all will stay safe and well in these difficult times

Best Regards
David Pendlebury
Fylde League Chairman
