Play-Cricket Scorecards
At this year's League Dinner on 14th October (have your Club ordered your tickets yet???) the League will present new trophies to the leading run scorer & leading wicket-taker in each Division. In order to determine the winners, we need the scorecards on play-cricket to be correct.
Please check that all your scorecards are up to date, don't forget that although your team was not responsible for inputting cards when playing Away, you can still input your batting & bowling details independent of the details of your opponents.

Malpas CC & Wilmslow Wayfarers CC 3rd XI
Unfortunately, following extreme difficulties in trying to get out teams on 23rd April, Malpas CC have had to withdraw both their 1st and 2nd XI from the League, and Wilmslow Wayfarers have withdrawn their 3rd XI frim Division B East.
Malpas CC & Wilmslow Wayfarers CC both deeply regret that they have had to take this action.
As a consequence, the results of the matches on 23rd April of these 3 teams will be expunged from the League Tables, although Woodford 1st XI performances in their match will still count towards their Averages. (I'll need to have a poke around in play-cricket to see how to achieve that!)

Play-Cricket results, etc
First (proper) week in the can, but not without a few teething problems. Clubs are reminded that 1st XI Scores & Results *must* be input to the Play-Cricket system by 10pm, otherwise Fines will be applied! This week we had 10 out of 18 on by Midnight (less than that at 10pm), so clubs need to sharpen up a bit once they are familiar with the system.
There were also a few problems with deciphering the new Pts system and claiming the correct points on play-cricket. Admittedly, Clubs were not helped by a misprint in the new Handbook on p69, which showed Maximum batting pts at 160. Of course, this should say 180 (the rain-delay immediately below the offending line is correct).
There were also a couple of instances where Bonus Points had not been claimed at all and Clubs are reminded that when using Eletronic scoring & Scoresheet submission, the Result & Result Points will be correct automatically, but Bonus Points must be claimed manually - this is exactly as in previous years and as per the County League.
We also had a disappointing response on the Text Line (NB Text Only, don't ring - I might still be out on the Pitch!) from non-1st XI Skippers, this txt line allows us to get up-to-date Tables earlier than if we have to wait for play-cricket or posted scoresheets. The number to use is 07867 825022.

New season
Welcome to the 2016 season! With most grounds a soggy mess, the Exec took the decision to postpone the (Division B) Fixtures scheduled for 16th April, provisionally adding an extra Saturday on 24th September - to be confirmed.
This season there are some changes to Clubs' admin procedures and Clubs need to ensure they get these right to avoid fines. In particular, it is now mandatory to input full Scoresheets (including names of Catchers/wicket-keeper data) onto the Play-Cricket system within timescales laid down in the Handbook. At the AGM, Clubs voted to adopt the same Match points-scoring system as the Cheshire County League and there are a few surprises in there that could catch out the unwary. To assist those who do not know how to achieve this, we have drawn up a Noddy Guide. Click here to the online copy of this Guide and also the online mini-guide to the Points System which is here.
As always, any queries please contact Graham Beckett via email
or me
Once again, Teams are required to submit paper Scoresheets to Graham Beckett & 1st XIs must phone their Results to him on Saturday evenings. We also offer a Txt service for 2nd XIs (actually 'non-1st XIs'!) for Skippers to txt their Results to allow us to get up-to-date Tables earlier. The number to use is 07867 825022.
Finally, I have now manged to complete updating of all Clubs' pages on this Site with 2016 contact details, maps & Directions to grounds. If Clubs spot any errors or have changes to the data in the Handbook, please let us know so we can update the Web Pages & inform Clubs via the Newsletter.
Have a good Season!

Overseas Players
Clubs are reminded of the strict legal Visa requirements and restrictions on foreign nationals imposed by the UK Borders Agency.
The Rules have been changed once again, quite a radical change actually & we will update our table of eligibility once we are more sure of what the changes mean!
Clubs (and their Officers personally) are legally responsible to ensure that the law is obeyed and prosecutions could result if not!
