League Secretary's report (Saj Rehman)

The 2013 season was overall an enjoyable season that passed without any major incidents to report.
My only moan and gripe is again to do with submission of results.

All team managers and captains are expected to submit the result of their game within 5 days of the game taking place, This enable the tables to be updated regularly. This will be even more important this season as we are trialling the CriHQ software this year. Please submit your result at your earliest convenience at least within 5 days of the result taking place. We will be doing a presentation at this year's AGM to unveil the new results software.

We did even entertain thoughts and ideas that we could have a dispute free season for the first time in many years however there was one incident that is reportable to the league members.

My team Tawheed CC played in division One last year and the majority of my players play weekend cricket, We do not really have a firm structure in place where it comes to player registration. If I do find I am running low on numbers days before a game, some of my Players will bring a mate along from their Weekend team. In this case a player came to help out in a league game. I did ask him prior to the game in which he helped out that he did not play for another VPCCL league teams and he said he didn't . I took it upon trust and he played.

I learnt later that he went onto play for another team in the league, and did not inform them that he had already represented my team. He batted higher than number 5 and bowled. He had unwittingly put the team in question in dispute.

A few weeks later we learnt that he had also turned out to represent this team in the cup/plate competition. Unfortunately for the team in question one of the league committee members recognised him and this was highlighted to the team captain. They did not, or had not confirmed his status or eligibility to play. Unfortunately the team had to forfeit their tie, where he player concerned had tried to play in the cup game. Their penalty this season would have been suspension from the cup and Plate for one season, however they have decided to leave the league this season.

The moral of the story is - It is the Manager/team captains responsibility to make sure all the players that play for your team are eligible to play for you and have not represented another league side in this year's VPCCL.

We are a voluntary league and do not want to create any more unnecessary paperwork i.e. player registration, however we do expect teams to adhere to the rules . Please check your player status , especially guest players helping out.

My overall view is the cup was a success but the plate seemed a little bit of an anti climax and would suggest it be only open to lower league teams and not to guests as a lot of the guest teams did not fulfil their fixtures.
We do need to vote on the plate competition and its format.

Unfortunately out of the 28 teams only about 4 came back to me with regards to my survey in connection with the cup/plate competitions.

All in all a good season and we look forward to a similar event free season this year.
