Cricket league decisions afoot
8:00am Wednesday 9th October 2013 in Sport
THE deadline for applications to or resignations from both the Derwent Valley League and the Andy Hire Scarborough Evening League is November 30.
All clubs in the leagues are asked to hold their annual general meetings before the end of November – particularly those clubs that struggled to raise sides last season and may need to recruit players.
Given the number of cry-offs last season, the Derwent Valley League committee would rather run two divisions of clubs fully able to get sides out than three divisions in which some teams may have to concede matches.
Likewise, the evening league could have three divisions rather than four.
There is a penalty of £50 for sides pulling out of the league after the November 30 deadline.
This date is also the deadline for any proposals for rule changes.
One likely change proposed by the Derwent Valley League committee is for all league games to start at 1.30pm. There is also a proposal for the Scarborough Evening League to have only one match per week rather than two, with the season beginning earlier and ending later.
Meanwhile, Pickering is to stage a cricket coaching course for juniors tutored by ECB Level 2 coaches Keith Simpson and Graham Hunt, assisted by Level 1 coaches.
The course is at the Northern Ryedale Leisure Centre every Wednesday from today (October 9) for nine weeks, to continue with another 10 sessions in the new year, along with full days during school holidays. Sessions for eight to 10- year-olds are from 5.45pm to 6.45pm and for 11 to 14-year-olds from 6.45pm to 7.45pm.
Single sessions cost £4, or £32 for all nine sessions. Booking is advisable.
All equipment is provided. For more details, phone the leisure centre on 01751 476726
