After a very satisfactory AGM, the details of the newleague officers and therule amendments voted in(and those not)are available HERE!
Thanks for those who attended the KRCL AGM on Wednesday 15th November 2017.
After a few hectic weeks of planning and organising, things are now taking shape as we can now start preparing for a new season.
For those who didn't attend ... a quick summary of events from the night.
We now have a new Management Committee and General Committee in place to take the league forward. Please use the above link for a fully updated list of officers.
Over the next 6 months, there will be major changes, and we will keep clubs advised of key decisions and asking for appropriate feedback when applicable.
With regards to the rule proposals - please see the above link for the document, outlining the major changes.
Match Format (Overs) - Championship Divisions will now play the 80 over format. Premier Division only will remain at 92 overs
Fielding Restrictions - these will only apply in the Premier Division
Eligibility of Players - these have changed for the Premier Division only, and will mirror those in place for the Kent Cricket League
And changes to the constitution ...
Disciplinary Procedures & VCC - amended as outlined to take into account the new Disciplinary Committee. Amendments to the Voluntary Code of Conduct will follow.
Ground Sub Committee - agreement to use artificial wickets in the lowest divisions of the structure, subject to specific criteria being met.
It is planned for the new committee to meet in the next couple of weeks.
Our first major project to resolve is the 2018 Divisional Structure, and hopefully this will be published in early December. After that, our attention will turn to fixtures, so please ensure that you provide the necessary information when asked.
The current numbers for 2018 are standing at ... 173 Teams - 18 Divisions based on 9 or 10 teams in the division.
And finally a reminder of the season dates for 2018;
Week 1 - Saturday 5th May 2018
Week 18 - Saturday 1st September 2018
Spare Week - Saturday 28th April 2018
All Clubs are reminded to keep all of these dates free until all fixtures have been published in the new year.
That's all for now.
