Spirit of Cricket:

Preamble to the Laws

Cricket is a game that owes much of its unique appeal to the fact that it should be played not only within its Laws but also within the Spirit of the Game. Any action which is seen to abuse this spirit causes injury to the game itself. The major responsibility for ensuring the spirit of fair play rests with the captains. 1. There are two Laws which place responsibility for the team's conduct firmly on the captain. Responsibility of captains The captains are responsible at all times for ensuring that play is conducted within the Spirit of the Game as well as within the Laws. Player's conduct In the event of a player failing to comply with instructions by an umpire, or criticising by word or action the decision of an umpire, or showing dissent, or generally behaving in a manner which might bring the game into disrepute, the umpire concerned shall in the first place report the matter to the other umpire and to the player's captain, and instruct the latter to take action. 2. Fair and unfair play According to the Laws the umpires are the sole judges of fair and unfair play. The umpires may intervene at any time and it is the responsibility of the captain to take action where required. 3. The umpires are authorised to intervene in cases of: · · · · ·

Time wasting Damaging the pitch Dangerous or unfair bowling Tampering with the ball Any other action that they consider to be unfair

4. The Spirit of the Game involves RESPECT for: · · · ·

Your opponents Your own captain The roles of the umpires The game's traditional values

5. It is against the Spirit of the Game: · · ·

To dispute an umpire's decision by word, action or gesture To direct abusive language towards an opponent or umpire To indulge in cheating or any sharp practice, for instance: (a) to appeal knowing that the batsman is not out (b) to advance towards an umpire in an aggressive manner when appealing (c) to seek to distract an opponent either verbally or by harassment with persistent clapping or unnecessary noise under the guise of enthusiasm and motivation of one's own side 6. Violence There is no place for any act of violence on the field of play. 7. Players Captains and umpires together set the tone for the conduct of a cricket match. Every player is expected to make an important contribution towards this.

SEVENOAKS VINE CRICKET ACADEMY

In 2013 Academy members played many senior games of Cricket, in Saturday League Cricket, Cricket Week, Clark Trophy and Sunday Cricket. We are aiming to continue to raise the numbers and hope to resurrect the Saturday Acorns side of yesteryear to accommodate the transition – this Saturday side will play friendlies after term time finishes. If you fit the age range ambitions of maximising your potential and you are either interested in joining our academy now or playing in our Junior ranks first, please contact us. The Academy is run by Shami Iqbal who is a Premier League winning captain from 1997 – he works closely with all of the senior captains, together with the U15 and U17 coaches and managers. Between them they will assess which youngsters should be playing cricket and we hope that these youngsters will make themselves avail for selection on a Saturday afternoon for a league side, assuming the no clash with any schools cricket, or a Sunday afternoon in the Jazzers development side.

A Brief History of SVCC and Cricket on Sevenoaks Vine The current earliest known reporting of cricket in Sevenoaks is based one report in the London Evening Post of a match between the Gentlemen of Kent and Sussex, which took place on 6 thSeptember 1734. On that occasion it was Lord John Philip Sackville who pitted his team and his purse against the Gentlemen of Sussex. The Sackvilles of Knole were among the many aristocracy of the day who matched their XIs against neighbouring estates for high stakes, which could be as much as 1,000 guineas! In 1773, John Frederick Sackville, the 35 Duke of Dorset and a great patron of the game, presented the Vine Ground out of the Knole Estate to the town of Sevenoaks to be a cricket ground forever. The Pavilion, itself a listed building, was built in 1850 and extended in 1975 when the Club merged with Sevenoaks Hockey Club. The bandstand was built in 1894. The Club Score box was refurbished in 1993 following donations from members and friends in memory of Alan Housden, affectionately remembered as a cricketer and Chairman of the Club and again in late 2008, when an electronic scoreboard was added due to the kind bequests from three late stalwarts of the club, Ken Smart, Norman Golds and Steve Trounce. The Club is the proud owner of many interesting items of cricketana, including a bat dating from 1745 made by the Pett Family of Sevenoaks, the first known bat maker. The Club is also the proud possessor of many fine prints, a number of which hang in the Pavilion. During the 18th Century great England players of the time included Lumpy Stevens, Joseph Miller, William Bowe and John Minshull, who were all employed on the Knole Estate. All were feared by the famous Hambledon Club. In fact it was reputed that the accuracy of Lumpy Stevens led to the introduction of the third stump on 18th June 1777 on The Vine. The old notch stick was eventually replaced by score cards, the first of these being printed by Pratt, scorer to Sevenoaks Vine Cricket Club. Since those early days the Club has seen five recent members, Chris Tavaré, Paul Downton, Mark Benson, Ed Smith and Alex Loudon play for England and one, Steve Smith, play for Australia. In addition former players David Fulton and Ed Smith have both been in the Kent county side, with David as Captain in 2004, whilst Ed was made the captain of Middlesex in 2008. A number of other players have held contracts with various counties including Will House, John Bowden, Tom Parsons, Maurice Holmes and Fabian Cowdrey, making a unique third generation at Kent CCC. 1971 saw the introduction of the Kent League, which title the 1 st XI won in 1972, 1978 and 1997, and the 2nd XI in 1974, 1987, 1998, 1999 and most recently in 2007 and 2012. Latterly the 3rd and 4th XIs joined the Mid-Kent League, with the 4th XI winning the title in 1997, 1998, 2000 and 2005- the last one by 1 point on the last day of the season! In 1996 the Kent League merged with the South Thames League and East Kent League to produce 3 divisions and promotion and relegation. In 1999 the Kent Premier League was created and the Club became one of the top 10 County sides playing 2 day cricket. In 2000 the 2nd XI also qualified for the 2nd XI Premier League. 1997 also saw the Club reach the Evening Standard knockout trophy Final at the Oval, sadly losing a tense match by 2 runs. In 1975 the Cricket Club joined with The Sevenoaks Hockey Club to form the Sevenoaks Vine Club and in 1982 a second ground was acquired at Orchard Field, Otford, to replace the much loved and much missed Knockholt ground. Substantial fund raising over many years finally culminated in the erection of the Otford Pavilion. In 1994 the Cricket Club assumed full responsibility for the costs of maintaining the Vine ground and in 2000 also took over the Otford ground as all hockey moved to Astroturf. Strangely, the actual name of The Vine is a mystery, but possibly relates to the existence of a vineyard near the Ground in the 14th Century when the Knole estates were owned by the Archbishop of Canterbury. The hurricane on the night of 16th October 1987 will long be remembered in Sevenoaks for changing the whole character of the ground, as six of the famous seven oak trees planted for King Edward VII’s coronation in 1902 came crashing down in the fiercest winds seen in the south-east region for 250 years. Subsequently, on the 6th December 1987 seven sapling oaks were planted – resulting in eight oaks lining the northern (lower) end of the Vine.
