Please be aware that the rule for re-arranging matches is quite clear. The request for re-arranging a match due to not being able to field a team is not a valid reason to re-arrange a match and the request should be denied. Therefore, please note the wording as repeated here and ensure that with immediate effect the rules are followed. The full support of all clubs is expected on this.
“A match once arranged shall not be postponed except by permission of the Honorary Secretary which shall not normally be given except in the case of unavailability of hall or other exceptional circumstances”
