South East Essex SMBL takes disciplinary action

The South East Essex Short Mat Bowls League Chairman Tony Ealham has confirmed that a notice has been published today on their website that the league has terminated the League Membership of a GPCA player. Their statement under the heading “Disciplinary Action” goes on to say that “the Club and member have been informed of this decision” and continues “This means that he is banned from any League matches, League associated competitions and from attending future League meetings.” It further states that “The contacts of the clubs in Division One will be informed of who this member is and will receive an email of “what to do” if he tries to play in a match from Tony Hayes - the League Fixture Secretary.” There has been mounting speculation today that the player concerned has a high profile in the sport both at county and national level and the action taken is likely to be challenged.
