It has come to light that several teams are turning up after 7.00pm then expecting to and having a lengthy knock which is having the knock on effect of matches not getting underway until gone 7.30pm which is not acceptable.
Matches are supposed to commence at 7.00pm and 7.00pm is not the time for players to actually arrive at!
We are mindful that some players due to work committments etc. cannot make the 7.00pm start time but teams should have at least one player ready to start the match at 7.00pm.
If a player turns up late then he or she cannot expect to then have a 10 minute knock with one of their own team mates and should only have the allotted 2 minute knock with their opponent.
May I also take this opportunity to also remind players of Rule 8d in the handbook:
'All matches should commence no later than 7.00 p.m. unless other times be mutually agreed.  Any team not having at least one of its
members ready to commence play at the agreed time may forfeit the match and the points may be awarded to the opposition.
The remaining team members must arrive in time to play their games in the order of the scorecard unless prior arrangements have been mutually agreed by both teams'.

Division One side Sparken Hill Starlings are really struggling for players and are having to play players up from the divisions below every week.
If anyone knows of any Division One standard players in other leagues that may want to play in our league then please let Andy Lee know as it may prevent him from having to pull his team out.
