Club appeals

Club Decision of CMC Date of appeal Decision of Appeal Panel
Ayr CC The CMC decided that Ayr CC be deducted 100 league points and 4 McCulloch Cup points for playing an ineligible player from the start of the season up to and including 1 June 2019. 24/06/2019 The Appeal Panel, unanimously, upheld Ayr CC’s appeal and, noting that Kenroy Peters’ ineligibility to play cricket for Ayr CC accrued from the Home Office’s amended opinion intimated to it on 5 June 2019, saw no reason to impose any points deduction(s) for matches played prior to this date, the prior period being, in effect, covered by the Home Office’s previous opinion, provided on 31 May 2019, namely that he could play.
Galloway CC The CMC decided that Galloway CC be deducted 150 points for playing ineligible players between 20 May 2018, the date two Galloway CC players played for Forres St. Lawrence CC, and 21 July 2018, the date the WDCU were informed that this had happened. 16/08/2018 The appeal was not upheld. The 150 point penalty remained. The application of the penalty was, however, amended to Galloway CC being deducted 75 points in season 2018 with the remaining 75-point deduction being suspended conditional on Galloway CC not again breaching player eligibility rules up to and including 31 August 2020.
Glasgow Accies CC The CMC decided not to permit the registration of Callum Russell, requested by Glasgow Accies CC on 30 July 2018, for the remainder of the 2018 season. 07/08/2018 The appeal was not upheld.
