Moorfield have second thoughts and withdraw
Saturday 15th December 2007

Having applied for Associate Membership of the LDCC and been accepted, Moorfield CC has decided, a day after the fixtures were issued, to withdraw their application and therefore do not wish to participate in 2008.

The result of this is that the 3rd XI (Sunday) First Division fixtures issued yesterday, Friday, are now void. A new schedule featuring 14 teams will be created and made available as soon as possible.

The teams affected are:

Ainsdale 4
Bootle 4
Formby 4
Highfield 4
Lytham 3
Maghull 5
Orrell Red Triangle 4
Prestatyn 4
Rainhill 3
St Helens 3
St Helens Recs 3
Sefton Park 6
Southport and Birkdale 4
Wallasey 4

Orrell Red Triangle now have a bye in the first round of the Embee Trophy and will play play at home to either Highfield or Fleetwood Hesketh in the second round.

NOTE: The rescheduled 3rd XI Sunday First Division fixtures may result in changes to the original fixtures for the Sunday Premier Division and clubs are requested to wait until the new First Division fixtures are published. It may also result in the need for the rescheduling on rearranged 1st and 2nd XI matches.
