Foreword Our 2017 Handbook is once again a testimony to the immense amount of work carried out by everyone connected with the Yorkshire Cricket Board. I wish to thank everyone who has contributed to its content and to thank the administration staff for its editing and production. The brand of “Yorkshire Cricket� - which encompasses the Cricket Board, the County Club and the Cricket Foundation - is firmly in place, with many initiatives and resources now shared amongst the three departments for the benefit of the whole cricket community in Yorkshire. The Yorkshire Cricket Board relies on a huge volunteer workforce to run the recreational game and we sincerely thank all club and league officials, sub-committee, League (Area) Councils, CDGs and Working Party members for their continued and valuable support. Cricket in Yorkshire is dependent on the work of volunteers, whether it is as a Coach, Groundsman, Umpire, Scorer, Player, Club Secretary, League Official etc. and we thank them most sincerely for their contribution to this great game of ours. After two years of planning, the 2016 cricket season saw the launch of the 2016 Yorkshire Pyramid Leagues. My thanks go to all members of the Pyramid Management Board, all of whom have all played a pivotal role in making this a reality. The other historical change concluded in 2016 has been the management and delivery of the elite junior cricket, including County Age Group Cricket which now comes under the banner of Yorkshire Cricket. Our sincere thanks to YSCA for all their significant work over the years can be found in the handbook. The newly expanded Pathways to Excellence Scheme has been built on the foundations of the previous system and plays an integral part in our new Elite Junior Cricket Programme. The Pathways scheme is a major flagship programme which continues to develop young players and encourage them to achieve their potential within the sport. Our congratulations also go to all the winners of the various county competitions throughout the county in 2016 and we do wish everyone involved in the game success for the season ahead. Andrew Watson YCB Executive Director

YCB Board of Directors The primary role of the YCB Directors is to promote and develop the game of cricket at all levels and in all situations within the recreational game and to provide governance support via a ‘check and challenge’ approach, primarily through bi-monthly Board meetings. The Directors also promote and implement the Yorkshire Cricket Board Development Plan, through the Yorkshire Cricket brand within the context of the current ECB Strategy (“Cricket Unleashed”) and the County’s Memorandum of Understanding with ECB.

Board members are chosen for their experience and expertise in a variety of business and sporting areas which are of direct value to the YCB, particularly so in the significant period of governance and operational change experienced by County Boards in recent years following structural changes within the ECB. The overall skills sets of the Directors have to match the requirements of ECB with each Director being given a portfolio to oversee and influence. The Board as a whole is collectively responsible for promoting the success of the Company by directing the Company's affairs. In addition to these requirements for all directors, the non-executive directors are expected constructively to challenge and help develop strategy, to participate actively in the decision-making process of the Board, and to scrutinise the performance of management in meeting agreed goals and objectives. The majority of Directors currently sitting on the Board operate on a Non-Executive, unremunerated, and voluntary basis, with the overall responsibility for the day to day operations and strategy lying with the Board’s Executive Director, Andrew Watson. The current Directors are: Chris West (Chairman)

Chris is a born and bred Yorkshireman, being a former career banker who held a number of senior Corporate Manager positions throughout the North-east. After retiring from Barclays in 2004 following 35 years’ service, he subsequently purchased a cricket correspondents business in 2006 which covered all club cricket from the Scottish borders down to North Yorkshire. Beyond the professional world he has spent a lifetime in recreational sport. Whilst he enjoyed a successful club football playing and administering career, his main passion has always been cricket. A one-club man, he began playing NYSD cricket for Stokesley in 1965 and amassed more than 1800 wickets and 11,000 runs before his playing retirement in 1998. Chris first became involved in cricket administration in 1967 at the age of 16, undertaking every role within his own club over many years before, in the 1980’s, branching out into league roles with the NYSD. Described in the January 2017 Cricketer magazine as a ‘visionary’, he has been the undoubted driving force behind the many significant developments in the NYSD over the last few decades.


6

Currently sitting on a number of ECB project groups, including the successful GTGO programme, he has served on a number of Durham CB committees. As well as his current role with the YCB he is chairman of the League Cricket Conference and a director of the National Cricket Conference. He is now in his 15th year as president of the NYSD, before that serving as secretary, and is president of Stokesley CC where his professional and practical expertise played a primary role in the ground redevelopment of 15 years ago that enabled the club to go on to host County second eleven cricket. Ian Cotterhill (Vice Chairman)

Ian is a Level 2 Cricket Coach who played cricket for Rotherham Town, Rotherham Phoenix, Warmsworth, & Ulley Cricket Clubs in South Yorkshire. He currently serves as Coach/Manager of the Doncaster Joe Lumb representative side team. Ian previously served as Disciplinary Chair for the South Yorkshire Senior Cricket League. Ian joined the Board in 2012 and his duties include a remit for Corporate Governance & Companies House matters; Chair of Finance Sub-Committee, Remuneration Committee, and Rules Revision Group. He is also a Member of Scholarship Awards group. Professionally Ian is the owner of a Steel Trading Company. Andrew Watson (Executive Director)

Andrew is the Executive Director for the Yorkshire Cricket Board being the executive lead within the Board of Directors. Andrew’s remit includes the management of the salaried staff, being 16 Development Staff (5 Managers, 11 Community Coaches) and 3 Operational staff employed by the YCB to deliver all aspects of recreational cricket in Yorkshire. This includes Club and League Development, School Development, Player and Player Pathway Development, Adult Player Participation and Retention, Workforce Development (volunteers & professional), Facility Development, Strategic Planning and Procedures and Key Partner Liaison at county, regional and national levels. Andrew is a member of various national working parties for the ECB including the Project Advisory Group and for Club Affiliation. He Chairs the YCB Child Welfare WP and has also chaired the Regional Northern Directors meeting for the 6 North of England Counties since 2005. Originally employed as a Cricket Development Officer when the YCB was formed in 1996, Andrew is the YCB’s longest serving employee.

Mark Arthur (YCCC)

Mark served on the Board as Chief Executive of YCCC. Mark arrived at Headingley in 2013 after holding similar positions at Nottinghamshire CCC and Nottingham Forest Football Club, where he worked for 13 years Mark started a career in sports administration at the Test and County Cricket Board (now the England and Wales Cricket Board) in 1990 before moving to Trent Bridge in 1994. He has over 20 years’ experience at the highest level of sports administration, both in cricket and football. Under Mark’s leadership, Yorkshire CCC has re-engaged with the wider cricketing and business communities, and, as a consequence the Club has returned to profit for the first time in 6 years. Philip Radcliffe

Philip has served on the Board since 2005 being a former Vice Chairman and more recently Chairman of the Board until he stood down in 2016. His remit now within the Board includes league matters and he provides the link for umpires and scorers through his leadership role within the YCB Association of Cricket Officials (ACO). Philip’s experience includes a range of club and league administration roles within both Senior and Junior cricket. He currently serves as Bradford Junior League Chairman, a Bradford League Board member, the North Region Chairman of ECB ACO and Chairman of YCB ACO. He was previously a member of the ECB's Recreational Cricket Committee and is a former President of Joe Lumb and Yorkshire Junior Cricket Festival competitions and Heavy Woollen Cup Competition.

The changes see an increase in membership of the YCB Members Board with Area Councils becoming League Councils, retaining their geographical coverage whilst refocusing their roles towards a focus on club/player/facility development – in line with “Cricket Unleashed”.

DISABILITY CRICKET, 2017 The purpose of the programme is to provide opportunities for all ages and abilities in disability cricket, either competitively or just for fun. There are currently 74 SEN Schools county-wide playing cricket as part of the school curriculum, with over 10 inter school competitions held last year. 2017 will see 4 regional indoor and outdoor competitions plus 2 county-wide finals. The 74 schools will also have the opportunity for 15 hours coaching within the school curriculum. Table cricket now has 3 community leagues established across the county. This form of cricket allows those with severe disabilities the opportunity to get involved and play a table top version of the game. The growth in participation runs alongside the Lords Taverner’s scheme to work in 40 schools to provide a Table cricket tournament in 2016. 40 schools across the county will have 10 hours coaching plus a regional and county final. The county winners will represent Yorkshire in the Lord Taverner’s school’s finals in July. Contacts

YCB ASSOCIATION OF CRICKET OFFICIALS (YCB ACO) The YCB ACO has developed into a well-respected body, nationally as well as in the county. Its Chairman Philip Radcliffe is currently also a director of the YCB and is also on the ECBACO North Region Committee representing the North on the national committee. Vice Chairman Glyn Pearson is the ECB ACO Executive Officer for the North and Midlands. YCBACO membership continues to grow as more courses are provided for all levels of officials. It is important that all umpires join ECBACO Subscriptions Full Member DD £30 £32 (cheque) Associate Member £15 £17 (no longer involved in active umpiring or scoring) Junior (U25) £15 £17 Includes Insurance for Full Members including PL insurance and for Juniors over 16 Advantages of Membership Personalised insurance - vital in the current age Up-to-date training Progression pathway YCB newsletter Quarterly ECB ACO newsletters Annual County seminars Branch meetings and workshops Access to quality clothing Application and Direct Debit forms available on ECB ACO website www.ecb.co.uk

OFFICIALS EDUCATION The Umpires courses are from Level 1 to Level 3 Level 1 is designed for those who intend to umpire regularly and acquire a better knowledge of the Laws of Cricket and will prepare an umpire for League cricket. It covers the key laws required for local league cricket and also deals with basic umpiring technique. Courses are organised by the branches with whom prospective candidates should make contact. YCBACO currently has 16 accredited level 1 tutors across the region. The Level 1A course bridges the gap between Levels 1 and 2 and introduces umpires to a greater understanding of the game beyond the laws. Level 1A courses are organised centrally by YCB ACO and prospective candidates should contact the County Education Officer (CEO).


33 The Level 2 course is for those experienced umpires who aspire to progress to officiating in premier leagues and higher levels of cricket. Level 2 courses are organised regionally and prospective candidates should contact the CEO in the first instance. Level 3 is for those umpires who are able, and wish to step up to multi-day cricket and officiate at county second X1 and Minor County levels. These courses are run nationally by the ECBACO and are by invitation. Our region has four accredited ECBACO scoring tutors. The ECBACO scorers’ progression path is in the same format as that for Umpires. All new up-and-coming training courses are published on the YCB and ECBACO websites. Umpire Contact is the County Education Officer (CEO), Rob Smith (therobsmith@hotmail.com).

SCORERS Any League or Association who require any scorers courses should contact the County Scorer Officer John Virr (johnvirr@yahoo.co.uk)

REGIONAL APPOINTMENTS ECB ACO gives members access to progress to stand in ECB appointed matches subject to performance and availability. To help with this process a team of Regional Appointments Officers has been set up through the ECB Regions. The Co-ordinator for the North Region is David Ward This has meant that appointments are made in consultation with the counties and up-and-coming officials stand a better chance of being selected. Matches for which the Regional Appointment Officer is responsible include BUCS fixtures, the National Club Knockout, and County Age group Under 19 and Under 17 and Women’s County Championship appointments Progression may involve accepting appointments outside an official’s usual county and even outside the Region. All Regional Appointments are made through the whostheumpire website www.whostheumpire.com For some, the first stage on the progression pathway may be to move into a more senior league or accept some matches in a more senior league but all progression will involve assessment by a combination of colleagues, boundary assessors or captains. For all details contact David Ward (Item 13 YCB Association of Cricket Officials)

UMPIRES CLASSIFICATION Every umpire member of ACO has to be classified – an ECB ACO requirement . An umpire who umpires Premier league cricket or its equivalent will be graded “C1”if they have been appointed to 6 matches in the top division of these leagues. These leagues are: ECB Yorkshire Premier League (North) ECB Yorkshire Premier League (South ECB North Yorks/S Durham Premier League ECB Bradford Premier League Aire-Wharfe

DBS Checks from Other Organisations The ECB can accept DBS checks from other organisations, providing the individual is registered with the DBS Online Update Service and the check is the correct type of DBS check. (Individuals can only register for the online service within 19 days of receipt of their DBS Certificate.) If an individual states they have a DBS from another organisation, that they wish to use, the following question will be asked: 1) Have you registered with the DBS online update service? If the answer is no we cannot accept their DBS from another organisation and they must complete an ECB DBS application.


38 If so, the individual should then contact ECBchecks@gbgplc.com or telephone 0845 251 3000 so they can request the necessary consent form and documentation. Please note that this ONLY applies to individuals who are registered with the Online Update Service. (The individual should not be permitted to undertake regulated activity until they have completed the process and show as vetted on CBMS). THIS MAY HELP YOU TO KNOW THE PROCESS. For information, the way the process works, is that GB Group (who manage this on behalf of the ECB )will send out the following: - A consent form (to allow GB Group to carry out the check) - A Post Office Identity Checking Service Form - Guidance The individual will then need to complete the consent form and take this, with 3 pieces of ID for certification, to the Post Office.

(The Post Office charges £7.50 charge for this.*) The Consent Form, the Post Office Certified copies of 3 pieces of ID, and the Original DBS certificate must be sent to GB Group, who will check the DBS certificate is the correct type, and check against the Online Update Service itself. GB Group will enter the individual’s details on their system and ours. Where the DBS certificate has content, the normal processes for reviewing content will apply. GB Group returns the original DBS certificate only to the individual. This applicant will not need to complete another DBS application for the ECB, unless they change their role (i.e. from children’s to adult’s workforce) or type of role (volunteer to paid), or their online report changes, or if they are asked to do so by the ECB. GB Group will carry out update checks every 2 years (the equivalent of our 3 yearly renewals now). (*A volunteer who does not wish to pay the Post Office fee of £7.50 could choose to complete an ECB DBS, at no cost, as now).

Information for clubs Over 95% of clubs in Yorkshire affiliate through the leagues in which their senior teams play. Clubs will, therefore, pay their YCB affiliation via their league on an annual basis. Where, for example, a 3rd X1 plays in a Sunday League where the league affiliates their clubs, then the club will need to ensure that this team is also affiliated. Junior teams do not need to be affiliated but please include any senior women teams who are playing league cricket as part of your club. Where a Club is paying direct to YCB its remittance should be for all the teams it fields on the normal match day not covered by a league en-bloc affiliation. Please include a statement indicating all the leagues the club plays in. The fees for 2017 are: £ 45 PER CLUB AND £15 PER SENIOR TEAM. A Secondary Affiliation package is also available at a flat rate of £20. This is applicable to 1 team clubs who play mid-week or friendly fixtures only, many of whom will hire facilities from other clubs or municipal premises. This package is also available to clubs with teams


43

playing in two Counties, whose primary affiliation is to a neighboring County (ie Lancashire, Nottinghamshire, etc) but have, for example, a 3rd team playing in a Yorkshire league. Please note that the Secondary Affiliation package does not include the T20 Ticket offer.

Information for leagues We remain grateful to all the Leagues who collect club affiliation as part the annual league fees for clubs playing their leagues. Please ensure you continue to liaise with clubs and neighbouring leagues to ensure that all clubs with teams in your league are fully affiliated

Submission of forms & Payment Completed forms and payment of fees should be returned by 31st May 2017.

BOWLING ACTION REFERRALS The YCB provides a service for any player who has been reported by a league for having a suspect bowling action. The approach taken is very much a supportive one to the player. This includes advising on the legality of the player’s action and then making recommendations on any remedial action required. All assessments are completed by Tony Pickersgill (YCCC Development Coach) and are free of charge. The process includes a comprehensive filming of a players action from which a full analysis of the bowling arm on delivery will be completed. The player and his/her club will then be contacted to advise what action, if any, is needed following the analysis. In the event of the analysis revealing an illegal action, the player will be invited back to Headingley for further advice and assessment sessions. For further information about the process please contact Graham Purdy at the YCB offices on g.purdy@yorkshirecb.com.

ECB Guidelines for Junior Players in Open Age Group Cricket The ECB has issued guidance covering the selection and participation of young players in open age group cricket. Full details can be found here: http://www.yorkshirecb.com/page/players/juniors/juniorplayers-in-open-age-cricket-5425/

Yorkshire Cricket Guidelines Yorkshire cricket has agreed guidelines to ensure that young players, parents and their coaches ensure that they are followed in the best interests of the young cricketers involved. This is to address fatigue, injury and the undermining of technique. The 25 days maximum rule has been introduced for 2017 which restricts the number of days representative cricket any elite junior can play per season with thin the following order of priority: ECB National Representative Side/Coaching. ECB Regional Representative Side/Coaching. ECB/ESCA/YCB County Representative Side/Coaching/YCCC Academy District Cricket Other representative games

Safety measures for helmets within recreational cricket The ECB helmet safety measures are designed to reduce the risk of head and facial injuries within the game. Leagues and Clubs at the recreational level are reminded on the guidance: Players over the age of 18


46

The ECB strongly recommends that all adult recreational cricketers should wear helmets for certain activities, preferably which meet the most recent British Safety Standard (see below). This recommendation applies to batting against all types of bowling, wicket-keepers standing up to the wicket (who may as an alternative wear face protectors) and fielders fielding closer than eight yards from the batsman’s middle stump, except behind the wicket on the off side. Under 18s The position in relation to U18s currently remains unchanged, and is governed by the ‘ECB Guidance on the Wearing of Cricket Helmets by Young Players’ (www.ecb.co.uk/youngplayershelmetguidance). In essence, batsmen and wicket-keepers standing up to the stumps must wear head protection when playing or practising. That Guidance should be referred to in full for the position in relation to u18s. British Safety Standard The latest British Safety Standard is BS7928:2013 (for both adults and juniors). The full list of helmets meeting this standard is available at https://www.ecb.co.uk/concussion-incricket/helmets. What do Leagues and Clubs need to do? Whilst it is strongly recommended that all adult recreational cricketers wear helmets in the on-field circumstances detailed above, it is not mandatory for them to do so. For the avoidance of doubt, Leagues or Clubs do not need to go above and beyond the ECB’s recommendation by forcing their cricketers to wear helmets. However, Leagues and Clubs in recreational cricket should ensure that their cricketers are made aware of the ECB’s above recommendation in relation to helmets, including the need to check that any newly purchased helmets meet the latest British Safety Standard. Leagues and Clubs should always ensure that they have adequate public liability insurance.


47

CLUB AND LEAGUE INSURANCE There is a moral and legal obligation on all committees to ensure that their clubs have adequate Insurance cover. This should include insurance of the premises and contents, the liability of the club to the general public, and to employees, and to insure members against the risks of injury whilst playing or working for the club, and last but not least the Board place special emphasis on the Cost of Legal Proceeding insurance as in recent years a number of clubs and leagues, not having this cover, have run into severe financial problems when suddenly faced with legal action over tenure of grounds etc. It is now also desirable to insure Club Officers against claims for personal negligence. The best way of protecting the club and its members is to take advantage of the E.C.B. Scheme arranged with the Allianz Cornhill by the brokers for the E.C.B., Marshall Wooldridge Ltd of Yeadon. It is our belief that adequate insurance arrangements should be made to protect clubs against the risk of: 1. Fire & Special Perils (Buildings & Contents) 2. Theft (Contents & Damage) 3. Consequential Loss 4. Loss of money 5. Public Liability 6. Employers Liability 7. All Risks (Trophies, Bags, Office contents, Videos, Artificial wickets nets & poles) 8. Cost of Legal Proceedings. 9. Loss of licence (applicable to clubs holding liquor licences)

Fuller details and application forms for both the above schemes are available from Marshall Wooldridge 14-16 Ivegate, Yeadon, Leeds LS19 7 RE

Elite Junior Boys Cricket The management and delivery of elite junior cricket comes under the banner of Yorkshire Cricket. This is due to the forthcoming participation and performance contractual agreement with ECB through the new ECB “Cricket Unleashed” Strategy. The Yorkshire Cricket Elite Junior (Boys) Cricket Management Board has the control and oversight responsibilities of County Age Group Cricket (including District Cricket) from U10’s to U19’s cricket. This includes determining the fixture structure for all County Age Group sides and managing the number of representative games played by elite junior cricketers within the new structures at all age group levels. Wholesome tribute is given to YSCA for their work over a significant number of years which ensured that many young players have played county age group cricket for Yorkshire. In particular to Bernard Knowles who has served the Association with distinction as chairman for 40 years. We sincerely hope that all at YSCA will look back with immense pride on the work done over the years in helping so many young cricketers to achieve their potential.

The 6 Districts are Kirklees & Wakefield (Kirk/Wakf); Leeds; North Yorkshire (NYorks); Bradford & Calderdale (Brad/Cald); East Yorkshire & Selby (E Yorks/Sel); and South Yorkshire (S Yorks).
