We would like to remind clubs of the following rule
If Clubs know their ground will be unavailable for any reason during the 2018 season, they should email Dave Lever by the end of November.
8. Fixtures; Dates & Field Days. All Club Days or Field Days, which make unavailable any ground on one particular date, and for which a special adjustment to Fixtures is required, must be notified in writing to the League Secretary before 30th November each year, so that the Fixtures Secretary may incorporate such re-arrangements in the fixtures for the forthcoming season. Any resulting re-arrangement must be notified, in writing, to the Competition Secretary by the Home Club, by the 28th February. Any failure to comply with the given dates, and ultimately failure of a Club to fulfil any fixture shall be dealt with under Rule 8b of the Competition.
Following the announcement of enhanced cooperation between the Northern Premier Cricket League and the Moore and Smalley Palace Shield, the umpires organisations that serve both leagues have been considering the best way for them to support both leagues going forward
At a meeting on Wednesday 11th October the new North West Association of Cricket Officials (NWACO) was formed and has been granted the sole right to appoint umpires to both leagues with effect from the 2018 season.
Bob Veitch was elected Chairman with Alf Dunn Secretary/Treasurer and Rob Hales Umpires Appointments Secretary in which role he will serve on the Executive of both leagues subject to ratification at the league AGMs.
One of the first tasks is to organise training in the new MCC Laws of cricket for its members and the players and officials of clubs in both leagues, more details will be announced in the next couple of months with training likely to take place in the new year.
Speaking at the inaugural meeting Bob Veitch, Chairman said " We now look forward to serving both the Northern Premier Cricket League and Moore and Smalley Palace Shield and improving the standards of all of our members as the two leagues enter a new and exciting future".
