Shortly before the last meeting of the Management Committee confirmation was received that Lahore Karahi, who had been absent from the last three Association meetings, would not be fielding a team in the Grades in 2017.

The Management Committee has accordingly agreed, that in accord with precedent, Siyapa, who finished third in Grade 3 should be offered promotion to Grade 2 assuming Lahore’s fixtures (including their cup draw), and they have accepted.  At this late stage however moving any side from Grade 4 to 3 would not be feasible given that of the 7 sides remaining in Grade 4, six are second or third elevens, and the other (Turriff) has constraints on the availability of its ground after the end of July.  Also, merging Grades 3 and 4 would produce a league containing two FPs’ sides, playing each other only once with a potential wide disparity in playing standard.  Grades 3 and 4 will therefore play this season with 7 sides only, each league having one free teams each Saturday, who could, if they wish – and subject to pitch availability – play each other, or offer members to the umpires’ panel.

 At the ACA Spring Meeting 2017 the paper on Umpires Fees and Expenses was unanimously approved by the membership. Part of the paper was that the allocation of umpires in the ACA was passed to ESCOA to administer.  I have been asked by ESCOA, and accepted, to allocate umpires to not only games in the SPCU but also in the ACA. I appeal to all umpires who wish to support the wonderful game of cricket in the ACA and beyond to get in touch with myself. Full support for umpire development and progression will be given by ESCOA.

Shared responsibility for safeguarding As you are already aware safeguarding children in sport is everyone’s responsibility. From the coaches and volunteers leading the sessions to Board members who finalise policies and procedures to parents, carers and spectators at events who may notice a concern, everyone can play a role in keeping children safe. This is something that Safeguarding in Sport would like to continue to emphasise as we believe that where responsibility for safeguarding falls on the shoulders of one individual this places both that individual and children at greater risk. With this in mind we recently engaged colleagues from across Scottish sport to produce a new video called ‘It’s Everyone’s Responsibility’. Please share the video below or link through your own websites or social media outlets to help us spread the message.

Given the issues that have arisen during season 2016, I thought it might be helpful to Clubs if ahead of the AGM I provided an overview of the way in which fixtures are currently compiled.

The list effectively has two inputs:

wytbu8  Oct 26 2016 - 11:50pm   

Clubs are reminded that the 2016 AGM of the Association is currently scheduled for Sunday 27 November 2016, venue and time to be confirmed.

Although the Management & Rules Committees will both be bringing forward proposals for Rule changes, clubs may also do so - provided always that notice of such proposals is submitted by 5pm on Thursday October 27, and are proposed by a minimum of 3 clubs. A consolidated list of proposals will be submitted thereafter, with 14 days permitted for clubs to submit amendments.  Clubs considering proposals are however encouraged, if they feel it would be helpful, to make initial contact with the Association Secretary on issues of drafting.  The Management Committee will be proposing that in addition to changes affecting season 2017 a formal process of reviewing the entire Constitution in light of recent statutory requirements and to meet the requirements of charitable status, including separating out the Rules of Competition, be put in hand over the coming 12 months.
