Cancelling Matches…the very very last resort

We will always try and support captains and teams who are short of players. The very last resort is to cancel a game as it causes a great deal of inconvenience to umpires, players and organisationally with pitches being prebooked etc. If you are struggling for a team please let us know as soon as you can, if you definitely cannot play a game we need 10 days notice to rearrange. We will do our very best to help and get the game on!!

Good luck to all players next week!
