Regrettably Pendle and Craven have been forced to withdraw their team from the 2018 short-lawn league due to anticipated difficulties in raising sufficient players to meet their league commitments. Accordingly all their short-lawn fixtures for this season will be declared void which will result in no points being awarded to either side for any of their scheduled short-lawn matches.
Reaching such a decision like this is never easy and the team captain and officers of Pendle and Croquet club must be commended for the decisive and timely way in which they have faced up to their present difficulty for which we must thank them.
For the avoidance of doubt this decision does not affect any of Pendle and Craven’s commitments in any of the other Federation leagues and these matches will continue as scheduled.
Ivan Wheatley, League Manager.
