The first round of the Leslie Dodds Cup has a strict – but generous – deadline of the 5th November, eight weeks from the Friday after the AGM.
The number of teams in the League remains at 29 but there has been a shuffling of the RAC ranks. Out go Jaguar, some members joining Bristol (and play in the same division), and Rolls Royce have reformed. As they are largely unchanged from the team that was demoted from Div. 3 in 2020-21, they have been placed in Div. 4
This is a schematic view of the changes.
|Division||New 1||New 2||New 3||New 4||New 5||Out|
The numbers represent the finishing position in last year's division (reading horizontally) and locate that team in the new vertical divisions.
