Volunteers are required for the 2013 season to score (BOTH INNINGS) for the 1st XI matches this season. This is a new requirement by the League and teams without a scorer will be fined AND have 3 points per match deducted. We are not specifically looking for ONE person to do the whole season but a few (or more) who will share the scoring between them over the whole season. Scorers traditionally get a free tea during the match! Additionally there are courses available from the ECB. Qualified scorers MAY also be paid £10.00 per match (subect to Committee approval)
With effect from today (30th April) any player that withdraws himself from a match having been selected for it WILL be expected to play in the next lower team in the next match that they are available to play in. If, however, the player has given advance notice of their unavailability (ie before the weekly selection meeting) this will not apply If the reason for a players late withdrawal is completely unavoidable; such as illness or injury, the selection committee will make a decision based on individual circumstances. It is important that players notify their availability in advance. With this in mind, in the very near future the selection committee will publish a list to enable you to advise of any occasions that you will be unavailable for selection due to work, holiday or other commitments. This will greatly assist the difficult process of selecting teams.
