Blossom Way drop out of the Lincolnshire League
IMMINGHAM Blossom Way have resigned from the Lincolnshire County Cricket League.
Their decision to leave after many years' membership was notified to clubs attending the league's annual general meeting, held in Market Rasen.
Also faced with team-raising issues, South Kelsey have been forced to drop one of their two sides.
Fortunately, the league had two applicants seeking places – and both Normanby Park and Old Lincolnians 2nds were elected to division four.

Immingham's departure leaves an opening at the Blossom Way ground, which is being taken up by Cleethorpes CC, whose lower league home games will be played there in 2013.
The close season will see a break with tradition with the Lincolnshire League staging its own annual dinner and presentation night, rather than sharing a function with the Grimsby and District Midweek League at McMenemey's, Blundell Park.
The Lincs League dinner will be at Hemswell Court in early April.
Club delegates at the AGM were informed of the Lincolnshire ECB Premier League's proposal to establish a new second division for 2014 which, if formulated, could mean four, or possibly more, teams leaving the top echelon of the Lincs League. This new competition is also intended to include teams currently in the top section of the South Lincs and Border League.
Further information was released about how the Lincolnshire League is to celebrate its 50th anniversary next summer. A league-wide Twenty-20 tournament at Chichester Road – home of Cleethorpes Cricket Club – will be staged on Sunday, June 23.
Clubs will be asked to nominate players to take part and it is hoped there will be a large turn-out of spectators.
