An extraordinary general meeting has been called after two long serving officials of the Cromer St John Ambulance Darts League decided to stand down.

Roger Mitchell, who has been league secretary for 27 years, is calling it a day along with chairman Charlie Wright and a meeting has been arranged in August when, it is hoped, replacements will come forward.

'I'm 73 now and have had one or two minor health issues and I think it's time for someone younger to take over,' said Roger. 'We have given people plenty of notice so hopefully someone will come forward. If they don't then the league could fold, and nobody wants that.

'It's still a good league, even though it's not like it was in it's heyday, when we always had our maximum of 14 teams playing and there was often a waiting list.'

The meeting has been set for Tuesday, August 8 (8.30pm) at the Cottage pub in Louden Road, Cromer.
