Any match for which neither of the sheets have been handed in after that meeting will result in a points deduction from both teams. Final tables will be published after the match sheets have all been processed.
As the season is drawing to a close I am pleased to confirm that the following teams have now secured their places as Champions of their respective divisions - well done guys:
Division One - Hanging Heaton Cricket Club

Division Five - White Rose Magicians
ATTENTION DIVISION 5 TEAMS !!!
The Rose and Crown in Cleckheaton have left the league with immediate effect as they were struggling to fulfil their fixtures. All results have been removed from the beginning of the season and the table is now updated to reflect this.
ATTENTION DIVISION 4 TEAMS !!!
As the Ackroyd Street WMC have not managed to fulfil their away fixtures in recent weeks the Committee have taken the decision to withdraw them from Division 4 with immediate effect. All results have been removed from the beginning of the season and the table is now updated to reflect this.

Registrations are now being taken for the 2014 / 2015 season and will be available at the meeting on 14 April 2014. You can either print the form from here Registration Form, fill it in at the meeting or email email@example.com
Please ensure that your interest is registered as soon as possible as we have changed the format for the new season which sees the AGM being held at the end of this season on 12 May 2014 rather than at the beginning of the new season which means we can fully implement any changes which come in to effect at the AGM.
The quarter final draws are now available for the 3 Man Team, Mixed Doubles and Landlords knockouts along with the semi final draw for the Singles A that were draw live at the meeting on 31 March 2014.

ATTENTION DIVISION 3 TEAMS!!

ATTENTION ALL TEAMS
Any teams who continually fail to attend games will face action from the Committee and I refer you all to Rule 27 of the BDPL League Rules which states:
27 Teams not turning up for matches will forfeit all points.
The offended team will receive average points (min of 5) plus bonus points.
The offending team will be fined ten pounds which will be payable within fourteen days to the league
In the past we have not enforced this rule and the league have covered the £10 payments for food when requested. This rule will now be enforced, any team who fail to attend a match without giving reasonable notice and cancelling through the Committee as stated at the AGM will face this fine.
This fine will go on top of the league fees and therefore, as with the league fees, if it still owed by the AGM then subscription to the league for the new season will be refused.

A change to the playing format was made at the AGM and from this season we will be playing a format of 6 singles and 3 doubles with the middle doubles being Scotch Doubles. Match sheets are available at the fortnightly meetings if you have not already collected them.
If you are new to Scotch Doubles the basis is that each shot played is alternated i.e. if you pot a ball then your partner takes the following shot, if they also pot a ball then you will take the next shot.
You are allowed to confer with your partner at the start of a visit however once you approach the table all conferring must stop - this does not mean you can confer each time one of you approaches the table during one visit, just the first approach. There is no conferring allowed during the break visit to the table.
If you are unsure about anything, please do not hesitate to speak to a member of the committee.
