A number of items to share. We have now moved into August so it is now unlikely that any player transfers between clubs will be accepted. New player registrations are still permitted.
I’m afraid that there was a significant increase in poor player/official behaviour in July leading to a number of sanctions. Could clubs remind all players and team officials of their responsibilities please. It is important that all teams play within the spirit of cricket. You may well have noticed that the Fair Play league tables were published on the website this week. If you haven’t already done so could you check how your teams are doing and let the players know please. The league tables are shaping up well and looks like there will be excitement at both ends of tables as we move to the end of the season. Good luck to all teams in their quest for glory or safety!!
It was a disappointing week for the Cup Finals as none of them were played due to the weather. They have all been rescheduled for the corresponding days next week.
Final reminder for the season for this one. Please ensure that your captains pay the umpires’ fees on time and that all scorecards/Captain’s reports and fair play scores are entered accurately and on time.
On Tuesday next week an Under 21 WDCU Select XI is playing the Ulster Schools XI at Hamilton Crescent. The game starts at 11am, so if you are in the area please drop in.
