We would also like to Welcome Dave Nelson as the new secretary and wish him every success in his new role, we trust that all clubs will give him their full support and assistance.


Player Registration

As agreed at the AGM player registration for this season is to done on line via Play-Cricket. To date many clubs have started this process and some have completed it, there are 2 teams who have done nothing at all.

Please Note 

1) Teams will not be permitted to use rule D1 (c) for Players who were registered in previous seasons.

2) Teams will be unable to select players on their results who have not been registered under the new scheme, therefore they will be liable for penalties under Rule F2 and there will be no amnesty period.

Whilst the registration secretary will take all reasonable measures to ensure that players put forward are registered in reasonable time please remember that the exec do have other jobs. DO NOT LEAVE IT TILL THE LAST MINUTE to register your players
