THE Harry Dewhurst Memorial League is giving new clubs the chance to join without paying league fees next season.

The league, founded in 1986, has struggled in recent seasons and has twice come close to folding prior to its last two campaigns.

The league’s committee is looking at different ways of attracting new teams – it only had seven teams last season.

Any teams who would like to join should contact Peter Tate on 01204 468718 or email
