18th MayLeague Structure - 2019-20

At the ALM last Sunday we produced the structure for the 2019-20 season. For those who didn't make the meeting I have attached the document so you can see where your teams will play next season.
The borders to the 8 Regional Leagues have moved so you may find your teams playing in different divisions than they were last season. Channel has ceased to exist, Wessex has moved slightly and we have a new league, Whitehorse, to the east.
As with all restructures it is difficult to please everyone, especially if you are a ‘border’ team. You may find your team travelling to play much further afield than they did last season but we have tried to minimise travelling wherever possible.
I would ask that you bear with us for the coming season. The promotions and relegations at the end of the season mean we will, where possible and if need be, move teams to a better geographical division.
If you have any queries please email Su at secretary@wcwhl.co.uk; I can’t promise we can help but we will try where we can.

13th MarChanges to Structure 2019-20

Following on from the news item below I just want to clarify that where it says any additional promotions (extra to the division winners) will be based on the next best points per game record is across all the divisions at that level. For example Area level will be 4 division winners plus the 2 next best points per game record teams which will come from across those 4 divisions - North, South, East and Central. If you have any questions please contact the League Secretary,

Match Start Times

Clubs must ensure times on the website clearly reflect the correct start time of the match. In the event the start time of a match is changed after it has been confirmed with your opposition you MUST ensure you contact them and get confirmation from them, in writing, that they have this new time. DO NOT assume that they will just happen to check the site to see if the time has changed as there is every likelihood they won’t. The onus is on you as the home team to make sure the information is correct and up to date.

Use of Offensive Language

It has been brought to my attention that offensive language was heard during a match in the vicinity of young players. I understand this can sometimes be due to player frustration but clubs are reminded that all players (and supporters) should demonstrate the highest standard of behaviour before, during and after a game. Please treat everyone involved in your game with the respect they deserve.

Match Report Forms

It was agreed at the ALM that we would no longer have match report books printed, in order to reduce our printing costs. Match report forms are available to download from the Information & Downloads section found under the Information tab at the top of the front page of our website. Please ensure your captains have sufficient copies of these to cover all their home league matches and that they allow their opposition to take a copy of the completed form after the match for their records. If you still have pages in your current match report book and wish to use these up please feel free to do so but once they have run out you will need to download forms as above.
