    YBL Statement      

Monday 4 January 2021

Good Morning,

On Sunday 3rd January 2021 the YBL Board of Directors met to discuss our current financial situation and the impact on our member of staff. 

The majority of YBL clubs are based within the current Tier 4 restrictions and indications from the Government suggest that further tighter restrictions will be imposed over the next few weeks. 

The Board have made the decision to furlough James Davies from Monday 4th January 2021until further notice. 

Our main objectives are to ensure the viability of the YBL and safeguard the employment of James moving towards next season. 

I think you will all agree that this is a difficult time for all of us and back in March 2020 I don’t think any of us would have imagined that by January 2021 we would not have started the season. 

I will be providing updates when we have new information to share and the Board of Directors will be scheduling a meeting for the first Sunday of February to re-examine our situation. 

All YBL planned activities are suspended until further notice which include the office, all YBL leagues and the YBL conferences. We will provide you with new dates once we are in a position to do so. 

If you have any questions please contact the YBL by email, which will be answered in due course by myself or one of the other Directors (

If your question is urgent please contact either myself ( or Kevin Henry ( until further notice. 

I hope that you, your families and club members remain well and that we continue to support each other through the next few months. 

Thank you for your understanding and patience. 

Kind Regards

Kim Accalia
Administrative Director
