East Men's and Women's League News


Re-arranging postponed fixtures: Was your game postponed last Saturday, if it was you need to remind your clubs fixture secretary that a date for the game to be replayed needs to be agreed within 14 days of the original fixture being postponed. This means both clubs need to communicate, agree the date and get the re-arranged date published on the League website (and if you have pool appointed umpires, make sure you tell them the new date!). As you are aware we are encouraging all clubs to use 18th Feb slip date. Some teams (about 20) had already agreed games on this date, so these clubs should use another date. We obviously do not know what weather is ahead of us, so please help everyone in the game by getting the already postponed game back in the diary.


Preparation for Cold Weather this weekend: As the Country goes into panic mode with the threat of snow, we at the East League want to take a more simplistic view. The BBC website gives a yellow warning, which says there are chances of snow in the remainder of today and tomorrow. However temperatures at night are likely to be very cold, so it's more likely that pitches will be frozen than snow bound. Therefore it is really good practice for clubs to contact their opposition so that the home team can plan early pitch inspections, we realise that fixture secretaries are busy people so clubs should exchange captains contact details and we encourage every club to make a decision about whether games will be played well before your opposition (and umpires, if yours are pool appointed umpires) leave home. If the game is cancelled the home club should contact their opposition, their umpires and their League Manager. Where games are cancelled the first slip date on 18th February should be used (there are a small number (less than 10) already planned for that date), so the majority of clubs should use that date if required. As in previous years the February break is a slip date, and claims that games cannot be played due to player unavailability will probably be ignored and the clubs shall be instructed to use that date.
