*** 2017 FIXTURES HAVE BEEN PUBLISHED ***
See them here, and in play-cricket.
The CGF League is deeply saddened and shocked to hear of the passing of Monmouth 3rd XI skipper Liam Stubbs in such tragic circumstances.
Liam was a hardworking and dedicated player & coach with the club and had been so for a number of years. Cricket was his passion in life and he will be missed by many involved with the game locally.
Our thoughts are very much with Liam's family at this extremely difficult time.
Administration notices for the 2017 Season: the handbook will be extended to show more explicitly things that were implicit from adopting GCCL rules, e.g. the disciplinary process. The handbook will also show the rules on promotions. There will be a more rigorous process to monitor failure to meet weekly deadlines on results, team sheets, pitch reports etc., and a team missing deadlines on 3 games will be penalised 5 points (the previous rule merely said that a sanctions of point penalties might be applied).
Proposition 2A: Matches in Divisions 1E and 1W will use a new ball for each innings
PASSED. Voting for: 12, against 6, no vote 2
Proposition 2B: Matches in Divisions 2E and 2W will use a new ball for each innings
FAILED. Voting for: 7, against 8, no vote 4
Proposition 3: In shortened match a minimum of 20 overs constitutes a result
PASSED. Voting for: 37, against 3, no vote 9
Proposition 4: League tables will be ordered by aggregate points
PASSED. Voting for: 33, against 6, no vote 10
Proposition 5: From 2018 the league will be linear without a region split
FAILED. Voting for: 5, against 32, no vote 12
Additional votes were taken after the AGM, with results as follows:
Proposition 6: West Division games will start at 1.30pm
FAILED. Voting for: 7, against 6, no vote 7. With such a close result and so many votes not cast, the proposition cannot be passed. However captains are able to agree on the earlier start if they wish, and will be asked to try to ensure a game finishes by 7pm.
Proposition 7: Alcohol ban during a game for players and officials.
PASSED. Voting for 22, Voting against 11, Abstain 2, no vote 14. The wording will be altered to cover a few concerns that were expressed on this proposition.
The new committee will be: Neil Wyman (Westbury-o-S), Andy Russell (USL), Chandar Udayarajou (ArcNE), Alex Kear (Newnham), Andy Watts (Woodpeckers), Terry Nixon (Newent)
