After 10 years of successful partnership, the league paid thanks to Tony Williamson and AWL Inspection at its AGM. As well as thanking him for his support, the committee were delighted that Tony agreed to join them this season in supporting the administration of the league.

League treasurer John Lyon said: “We can’t thank Tony and AWL enough for their decade of support. Having built such a great working relationship over the years, we’re delighted we won’t be saying goodbye to Tony and we’re sure having his expertise around the committee table will be a great help.

“We’re incredibly happy to have brought in the support of a new sponsor so quickly, and we’re looking forward to building a great working relationship with Michael Jopling and Renov8 (NE) Ltd in the months and years ahead. Their support will help immensely in ensuring the league’s financial stability as we look ahead to celebrating our 50th birthday in 2024.”

Les Palmer (Stocksfield) moves into the role of president, while Steve Rooney (Westerhope) was elected vice chairman.
