MCCL Rule Changes

By James Quinlan

Standards of behaviour to be addressed in all leagues

Please see below the latest notice from the MCCL about the behaviour of players this season. Playing members and, especially, captains, please make yourselves aware of these changes.

"The MCCL Executive has also become concerned by the decreasing standard of player behaviour outside of the “Panel Umpire” matches, particularly in the Third Tier. This cannot continue, it is in these areas that the majority of the junior players are playing and we have to act to ensure these players are not exposed to unacceptable on-field behaviour.

As a consequence of this belief, the League Executive will now deal directly with all reports of bad player behaviour outside of the matches officiated by Panel Umpires and will be holding Captains responsible and accountable for the behaviour of their team, should there be failings, bans will be imposed, on the players concerned and the captains. The minimum standard that we expect from matches is that they are played “without incident”, our aspiration is that all matches are played fairly and in good spirit and enjoyed, win or lose by all those taking part.

It is our belief that at this level the Captain of the team has a significant impact on the behavioural culture of a team, it is for this reason that we will be holding Captains accountable, there is a requirement for all Captains to hold DBS certification, this is for good reason, they are expected to set the standard for conduct both on and off the field, for both adults and minors.

Should any club want to report an incident/incidents, they should first report the matter internally to their Secretary, Chairman or Cricket Contact and then one of those Representatives of the club will be responsible for reporting the matter to me. We will not be accepting reports direct from Captains, we wish the matter to have been discussed and considered by Club Executive first, we recognise that this may cause a short delay to any citing, however it is important that, as this is a serious matter, that club officials conduct their own review before sending to the MCCL Executive."
