There has been major upgrade to the Laws and these were applied from October 2017. It is incumbent on the Club’s and especially the Captains to familiarise themselves with the Laws. These can be viewed on www.lords.org/mcc/laws-of-cricket

When your game has an appointed umpire all Laws will apply. At player only umpired games then Law 42 and parts of other Laws will not apply. This list will be posted shortly. When players are umpiring I expect complete impartiality and use of the Laws.

The Season 2018 will soon be with us and Umpires are always required in the ACA. My own background is playing for Cults CC for 40 years and have umpired since I retired from playing.

The meeting will be held on Sunday 29th April 2018 from 14:00 to 16:00 at Mannofield in the Bradman Suite.

CRICKET IN THE COMMUNITY

It has been raised at several forums that the lack of practice facilities in Aberdeen may be hampering the development of local players in the Aberdeen area, with clubs potentially losing players because of this…...SDCC want to help local clubs by offering the use of our facilities.

Update: Thistle Sports (29-31 Rose Street, tel.:01224 620100) have advised the following “Grades ball should be in stock shortly. We would be happy to put a deal together for Grade 1 teams and their need for pitch markers. If they all agree to the same type and give us the order we should be able to get a discount. We would expect to be at least as good as the best online price hopefully better”. 

Also, see attached diagram showing how to mark up 30 yard inner circle.

At the 2018 ACA Spring Meeting it was agreed that it would be mandatory for
ALL clubs to have at least £5m of Public Liability Insurance. Also for the requirement of the Inner Circle Disk Markings, which would be mandatory for Grade 1 and in ALL cup competitions.

To assist clubs a member of your ACA Grades Committee was tasked into looking at options that were available for recommending Club Insurance and for Inner Circle Disk Markings. When searching for public liability insurance a number of online query forms were completed but found many quotation pages taking a considerable amount of time to work through, Sadly, no response was forthcoming from any of the online query forms, and whilst it would be great to give clubs a range of names to contact, we can only really advise on the 2 noted below for Public Liability Insurance. With regards to the Fielding Circle Discs, NetWorldSports do seem to be comfortably the cheapest that appear on the first page of a google search, so we leave it to the clubs to look elsewhere if they wish.

PUBLIC LIABILITY INSURANCE
https://www.insure4sport.co.uk  The quote is done online and takes a couple of minutes. It is based on the number of teams, so for most Grades clubs, quite cheap. The ACA require a minimum £5m public liability, and this may well cost less than £60. The more you add to the policy, the more you pay.

The Cricket Scotland partner insurer is Marshall Wooldridge. They can be contacted through
extracover@marswool.com  Their quotation form is attached if you want to get a comparative quote.

Prior to the start of the season, all clubs must email a copy or scan of their insurance document to 
acagradess@gmail.com

NO Insurance Document = NO cricket!

FIELDING CIRCLES
https://www.networldsports.co.uk/cricket-circle-fielding-discs.html
It is the responsibility of the HOME side to have the fielding circle in place before the start time for their match. The discs are available from numerous other online suppliers.
