Pitch Marks

In order to understand how the league can help clubs who have issues with their pitch, if a mark of 2 or below is given in any pitch mark category, it is now required that further information is provided in the notes section.

Road Closure

From Monday 25th July to Friday 2nd September, the B3108 between Bradford on Avon and Winsley is closed. This will affect teams playing at Winsley, and in some instances, will also affect teams travelling to/from Bear Flat, Combe Down and Hinton Charterhouse. The recommended diversion is 18 miles. Please check your route before you travel, and allow extra travel time if necessary.

Pitch Marks

Under 18 Captains

Please note that for all teams, either the captain or vice captain must be over 18, and where the captain is under 18, the vice captain must make himself known to the opposition captain and any non-playing umpires before the start of play.

Disciplinary Reports

Please ensure that where a disciplinary report is to be submitted, the offending team's captain is informed that a report will be submitted before you leave the ground. As per league rule 47(c) and as stated at the AGM, if this is not done, the report cannot be accepted.

Umpire Points in Abandoned Matches

As per league rule 40(a)(iii), umpire points are only awarded if at least 10 overs are played. I have now updated the website code to reflect this, and have updated the points for the matches on 2nd July to reflect this.

AGM Date

The AGM has been moved to 22nd November 2022 to avoid a clash with England's match in the FIFA World Cup.
