Concerning:- WDCL Match 418, Halesowen ‘D’ v Stourbridge ‘D’, played on 11th November
Halesowen appealed against the ruling and subsequent penalties imposed on them by the Records Secretary, concerning Rule 6a (board order), in Match 418. The Appeal has been heard by the Rules and Disputes Sub Committee; both Halesowen and the Records Secretary attending. The Committee ruled that:
‘1.The Appeal is rejected unanimously.
2.We accept that Halesowen acted in good faith but felt that the grade difference (33) was so great that a change of board order was not justified.’
