Chairman’s round-up. David Ward provided a round-up of information for clubs: 
• Live-screening – clubs who wish to live-stream games must first obtain the consent of the opposition (see the YCSPL Live-Screening policy
• clubs were reminded that all cases of serious injury during games must be recorded on Play-Cricket 
• in all cup and T20 competitions, clubs must ensure that 17” lines are marked for the judging of wide balls 
• teas – all clubs have been given the chance to decide whether or not they will provide teas in 2022; lists of whether clubs will provide teas will be publicised through the handbook and website – where teas are provided, the visitors must purchase a minimum of 11 teas in accordance with Playing Condition 11 
• the new ECB General Conduct Regulations have been adopted by the League to replace the previous disciplinary regulations – there is little change as a result, other than that a new ‘charge letter’ will be issued to clubs following a disciplinary report, to explain what regulations have been breached, and what the penalty should be 
• sadly, Kilnhurst Colliery have had to withdraw from the League – this means that there are only eleven clubs in Division 6, and each club will have two free matchdays 
• Thorncliffe and Wentworth have merged; the first team will play the Thorncliffe fixtures in Division 3 and the second team will fulfil the Wentworth fixtures in Division 7 – the opponents in the old Thorncliffe 2nds fixtures will now have a free matchday 
• Barnby Dun from the Pontefract & DCL are the only new club application for 2023, but Norton Woodseats will also play their second team in the YCSPL from 2023 
• the new Millhouses Works pavilion should be open by the end of May – until then, the old Covid rules for changing in advance will apply 
• YCB fees have been reduced for 2022, and clubs will now receive a single invoice for YCB and YCSPL subscriptions 
• for 2022, the total subscriptions will be as follows: 
clubs with one team - £95.00 
clubs with two teams - £190.00 
clubs with three teams - £285.00 
clubs with four teams - £380.00 
• Andy Tipple has agreed to provide content for the League Facebook pages, in order to help raise the League profile 
• Publicity: 
a Pre-Season newsletter is to be published early next month – clubs are asked to provide any information about new players or significant changes 
the Club Directory on the website is to be refreshed in the next couple of weeks – clubs who have not done so are asked to provide brief details of their facilities and history 
clubs are invited to be part of the ‘Around our Clubs’ website feature – all that is necessary is to participate in a Zoom call to provide information about your club 
To provide any information about your club, or to arrange an ‘Around our Clubs’ feature, please contact the webmaster, Roger Pugh
