May 30, 2016 Secretary Annual Report 2016
I normally write this report as being a summary of the League activity from the League’s perceptive. This year it is my own personal views and should not be taken as the views or opinions of the League. Until this season I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of being involved in the League as a player, Club Official, League Officer, Referee and just watching games being played.

Feb 18, 2016 Cricketers Horndon Saxons Resign from the League
This week Cricketers Horndon Saxons have apologised to the League for their actions and resigned from the League. This came about as a result of registering and playing players who were underage in previous seasons, playing an underage player in an Over 45 game who was a registered player for the Over 35 team, being unable to provide proof of dates of birth for nearly half their squad when requested and knowingly playing an ineligible player on a registration check.

At the recent meeting the League Management Committee are concerned about the high level of money the League currently have. We are looking to re-distribute some of this to Clubs.
Jan 16, 2016 Proposed Rule Changes
If Clubs have any have any rule changes they would like to propose these need to be submitted to the League Secretary by 1st February 2016 at the latest. The League Management Committee will be proposing a rule change that means Clubs must hold a copy of every player’s proof of date of birth. The Registration Secretaries will then at random during the season ask Clubs to supply the copies within three days. Failure to supply the requested information will led to fixtures being suspended.
