Editor's note: We reported that Belle Vue had withdrawn from fixtures due to players leaving, which was not the case. We are sorry for any upset caused.

The South Vale District Bowling Association would like to make the following clear:

1. Cadoxton is competing in all competitions and for every game fielding a full side with several reserves available.

2. The Murch, for Covid related reasons, decided to start competitive play late. They are now fulfilling all fixtures and are top of their division in the Cardiff League.

3. The chairman of Belle Vue would like to stress that they are in a stronger position as far as membership is concerned than they have been for some time.

They, in common with some other clubs in Wales, decided not to participate in the leagues for reasons connected with Covid.

They have in fact increased their membership and very much hope for a return to normal service next season, meanwhile enjoying social bowling.
