13th Dec (2017)MRHA Men's Open Leagues Proposal

The below message has been posted on the MRHA website news feed and is copied for your information - if any clubs raise questions with you please direct them to their club secretaries who should be able to clarify.

In December 2017 the Men’s League circulated a 38 slide powerpoint presentation to the Secretary of all Clubs competing in the League in the 2017-18 season. Entitled ‘Towards Open League’ this document contains a formal proposal for all Clubs to migrate to a new Open League Structure for the 2018-19 season - and extensive details on the work and rationale behind that proposal.

A readable/downloadable version of this presentation, in .pdf format, is available from this website for general viewing by all interested parties in all League clubs.

Players, officials, umpires and Club members are encouraged to read the proposal and get in touch with YOUR CLUB SECRETARY to indicate your overall support or objections....

Please DO NOT contact MRHA Men’s League directly as individual comments or queries will NOT be answered

Any queries from EMHUA members can be directed to Andy Barnes or Colin Anderson
