Peterborough League bowls starts next month

Park Crescent Bowlers and Bourne Town have withdrawn, the former almost certainly permanently through lack of players.

Meanwhile, Langtoft Pearl have pulled teams out of both the Midweek and Club 55 competitions, leaving one in each, while Yaxley, who had two teams set to play in the Midweek Premier, have withdrawn one of them, while City of Peterborough have dropped their D team, also from the Midweek League.

The start date for most clubs has been delayed a fortnight to the week beginning May 17 in the hope some further Covid restrictions will be lifted.
