Weekly clubs bulletin no 15 - 5 August
Posted on 6th August 2021 at 07:54
Here is this week’s round-up of information for YCSPL clubs.
The Yorkshire Cricket Board would like to ensure that every cricket club in Yorkshire has a life-saving defibrillator as quickly as possible. In partnership with the Club Cricket Charity and the ECB’s existing defibrillator scheme they have launched new scheme to supply portable AED units at a highly discounted cost of £600. We strongly encourage our clubs to take advantage of this scheme – see details.
ECB Coaching Scolarships
The ECB Coach Development Scholarship initiative launches today. These new scholarships seek to break down barriers to access and improve opportunities for coaches that are female, ethnically diverse or disabled. They have been set up to improve diversity in the coaching family and create role models that others may aspire too, by providing designated mentoring and support. We will forward full details directly to clubs.
Equity & Diversity Survey
We would like to remind all clubs that the survey has now been published, and we encourage everyone connected with our clubs – members, players or officials – to take a few moments to complete it. If anyone has any questions about the survey, or would like to discuss anything in connection with it, they should contact the Equity & Diversity Group - firstname.lastname@example.org. The closing date for completion is Friday 13 August.
Extra Cover Insurance Whitworth Cup final
This Sunday, 8 August, the Whitworth Cup final, between Aston Hall CC and Sprotbrough CC, will take place at Moor Road, the home of Wath CC – 12 noon start. We wish both teams the very best of luck and hope for a good attendance to cheer the teams on – all are welcome!
We would like to thank Extra Cover Insurance for their sponsorship of this competition, and look forward to welcoming their representatives on the day.
Disciplinary playing and suspension bans are now live on Play-Cricket and, working in the background, they operate through all forms of cricket falling under the auspices of the ECB. As the playing or suspension bans are expired they will disappear from view - YCSPL Play-Cricket site.
Promotion & relegation
In accordance with Covid rule 7 set out at the start of the season, as all divisions will, by this weekend, have completed 75% of their league programme, promotion and relegation arrangements in accordance with the YCSPL 2022 Structure document will apply.
This rule provides that, ‘if there is a delayed start or an interruption to play during the season, promotion and relegation arrangements will depend on the number of days upon which a full YCSPL league programme (Premier and Senior Sections) can be played (irrespective of whether there are any rearrangements or cancellations on those days)’ and that ‘if a minimum of 75% of the normal league programme can be played, normal promotion and relegation arrangements will apply’.
