Junior Rules

18. ECB Regulations & Guidelines relating to Junior Players

19. Rules applying to all Junior matches under the League auspices, including Junior Registrations, Match Results & Match Returns

20. Rules applying to the U17 Competition

21. Rules applying to the U15 Competition

22. Rules applying to the U13 Competition

23. Rules applying to the U11 Competition

24. Rules applying to the U9 Competition

18. ECB REGULATIONS & GUIDELINES RELATING TO JUNIOR PLAYERS

18.1 The following ECB regulations and guidelines relating to junior players must be applied in all matches played under the auspices of the League. Clubs are responsible for ensuring compliance and failure to do so may render the club, Captain / Manager or Coach liable in the event of an injury and may invalidate insurance cover. Non-compliance with any of the provisions in this Section will be referred to the Disciplinary Committee for investigation.

ECB Guidelines for Junior Players in Open Age Group Cricket

18.2 Players who are selected for a County or Area (and, in Yorkshire, a District) Under 12 squad in spring for a summer squad are eligible to play in open age cricket. This is providing they are in an Under 12 age group and are at least 11 years old and in School Year 7 on 1st September in the year preceding the season. Such players must also have written parental consent to play.

18.3 Club players who are not in a county, area or district squad must wait until they reach the Under 13 age group, be in Year 8 and be 12 years old on 1st September of the preceding year before being able to play in any open age group cricket. Written parental consent is required for these players.

18.4 In allowing these players to play in open age cricket it is essential clubs and coaches recognise the ‘duty of care’ obligations they have towards these young players. The duty of care should be interpreted in two ways: a) Not to place a young player in a position that involves an unreasonable risk to that young player, taking account of the circumstances of the match and the relative skills of the player. b) Not to create a situation that places members of the opposing side in a position whereby they cannot play cricket as they would normally do against adult players. In addition, the guidelines note the need for clubs and leagues to recognise the positive experience young players should have in open age cricket. Clubs should provide an opportunity for players to show their talents in an appropriate way.

ECB Safety Guidance on the Wearing of Cricket Helmets by Young Players

18.5 All players up to the age of 18 must wear an approved helmet, fitted with an approved faceguard or grill, when batting and when wicket keeping if standing up to the stumps. This applies in all matches and practice sessions, both in adult cricket and in all junior cricket played with a hard cricket ball. Parental consent not to wear a helmet should not be accepted in any form of cricket. The helmet requirement ceases on the player's 18th birthday.

18.6 Captains, Coaches and Umpires have a responsibility to ensure the regulation is enforced in senior cricket. Managers, Coaches and Umpires have a responsibility to ensure the regulation is enforced in junior cricket. Umpires should obtain an assurance from the player and Manager if they have any doubt about the age of the player.

ECB Fielding Regulations

18.7 The fielding regulations apply to all cricket in England and Wales. Captains are required to ensure the fielding restrictions are not infringed. Umpires must stop the game immediately until all junior players are suitably positioned. All ages are as at midnight on 31st August of the preceding year.

a) Under 13 and younger – even if wearing a helmet, cannot field closer than 11 yards (10 metres) from the middle stump, except behind the wicket on the offside, until the batsman has played at the ball.

b) Under 15 and younger – even if wearing a helmet, cannot field closer than 8 yards (7.3 metres) from the middle stump, except behind the wicket on the offside, until the batsman has played at the ball.

c) Under 16 to Under 18 - Must wear a helmet and, for boys, an abdominal protector, when fielding within 6 yards (5.5 metres) of the bat, except behind the wicket on the offside.

ECB Fast Bowling Directives

18.8 Captains, Coaches and Umpires are required to ensure that there is no infringement of the current bowling restrictions relating to the number of overs bowled by juniors. The following restrictions relate to a fast bowler, who is defined as a bowler to whom the wicket keeper in the same age group would, in normal circumstances, stand back to take the ball. All ages are as at midnight on 31st August of the preceding year.

a) Under 13 - Cannot bowl more than 5 overs in a spell or more than 10 overs in a day.

b) Under 15 - Cannot bowl more than 6 overs in a spell or more than 12 overs in a day.

c) Under 19 - Cannot bowl more than 7 overs in a spell or more than 18 overs in a day.

18.9 Having completed a spell the bowler cannot bowl again, from either end, until the equivalent number of overs to the length of his spell have been bowled from the same end. A bowler can change ends without ending his current spell provided that he bowls the next over that he legally can from the other end. If this does not happen his spell is deemed to be concluded.

18.10 If play is interrupted, for any reason, for less than 40 minutes any spell in progress at the time of the interruption can be continued after the interruption up to the maximum number of overs per spell for the appropriate age group. If the spell is not continued after the interruption the bowler cannot bowl again, from either end, until the equivalent number of overs to the length of his spell before the interruption have been bowled from the same end. If the interruption is of 40 minutes or more, whether scheduled or not, the bowler can commence a new spell immediately.

18.11 Once a bowler covered by these Directives has bowled in a match he cannot exceed the maximum number overs per day for his age group even if he subsequently bowls spin. He can exceed the maximum overs per spell if bowling spin, but cannot then revert to bowling fast until an equivalent number of overs to the length of his spell have been bowled from the same end. If he bowls spin without exceeding the maximum number of overs in a spell the maximum will apply as soon as he reverts to bowling fast.

18.12 The Umpires are deemed to be the sole judges of whether a player is regarded as a fast bowler. Their decision within the context of the game shall be final.

19. RULES APPLYING TO ALL JUNIOR MATCHES UNDER THE LEAGUE AUSPICES

19.1 Any club wishing to enter more than one team in a particular age group will require permission from the Junior Cricket Committee.

19.2 Any club wishing to enter a team in any age group and then later withdrawing from that age group before the end of the season shall be fined a sum of up to £50, the amount to be determined at the discretion of the Junior Cricket Committee.

19.3 Clubs shall be responsible for ensuring that all games are played on good and safe pitches. Clubs intending to use non-turf pitches for junior fixtures must advise the Junior Cricket Secretary in writing prior to the start of the season. Where non-turf pitches are used these are to be of good quality and must be suitable to all types of footwear, including spikes and rubber.

19.4 Each team shall provide for its own use a cricket ball, as decreed by the Board at the previous year’s Annual General Meeting and purchased through the League or from a supplier nominated by the League.

19.5 At least two responsible adults shall accompany each junior team in all matches. They shall be responsible for the good behaviour of the players and for ensuring that the matches are played in the spirit of the game.

19.6 No club may postpone a match due to weather until the day of the game. The visiting club may withhold its agreement and exercise the right to travel. After the mutual agreement of cancellation has been accepted by the visiting club, no objection can then be considered by the League. In the event of mutual agreement to cancel an U18 fixture, the home club is responsible for informing the appointed League Umpire of the cancellation and shall be responsible for any costs incurred by the Umpire due to late, or no, notice.

19.7 Any club failing to fulfil a fixture shall be fined the sum of £10 and the match awarded to their opponents, unless a satisfactory explanation meets with the acceptance of the Junior Cricket Committee. Any club forfeiting more than three fixtures, including Cups, in one age group shall be deemed to have forfeited all games played and all points relative to their fixtures shall be expunged from the league tables. Any club failing to fulfil an U18 fixture shall be responsible for informing the appointed League Umpire of the cancellation and shall be responsible for any costs incurred by the Umpire due to late, or no, notice.

19.8 In the event of an age group consisting of one division only, final league positions shall be determined by the number of points gained in the season. In the event of two or more clubs finishing with an equal number of points then the final positions shall be determined by taking account of the following:

a) the number of league matches won by the clubs concerned during the season. If the matter is still unresolved, then

b) the points gained from the head to head matches between those clubs. If the matter is still unresolved, then

c) the proportion of average number of runs scored 'for' per wicket, to the average number of runs scored 'against' per wicket.

19.9 In the event of two divisions being in existence in any age group, the top club from each division shall play-off, at a venue to be decided by the Junior Cricket Committee, to determine the title holder for the year. The top club in each division shall be determined by the number of points gained in the season. In the event of two or more clubs finishing with an equal number of points, the top club shall then be determined by taking account of the following:

a) the number of league matches won by the clubs concerned during the season. If the matter is still unresolved, then

b) the points gained from the head to head matches between those clubs. If the matter is still unresolved, then

c) the proportion of average number of runs scored 'for' per wicket, to the average number of runs scored 'against' per wicket.

19.10 Any Cup match in which it is not possible to obtain a result by other means (wickets lost) shall be determined by a bowl-out. This will initially involve five players from each side who will bowl two over arm deliveries each. The side which bowls down the wicket the most times shall be the winner. Thereafter, if the scores are equal, the same players will bowl one ball each alternately to achieve a result on a ‘sudden death’ basis.

19.11 Where no specific provision is made in junior rules, senior rules must be followed. Breaches of any rules relating to the junior competitions are liable to penalties at the discretion of the Junior Cricket Committee. Objections and appeals against any decision of the Junior Cricket Committee must be made to the Junior Cricket Secretary, in accordance with the procedures defined in Rule 14.

Registrations

19.12 Registrations shall be required for all juniors playing in the Under 15 and Under 18 age groups only and shall be made directly on to the Wetherby League website (www.wetherbyleague.co.uk) under 'Junior Registrations'. Clubs are required to provide the full names of all players and to specify the age group appropriate for their date of birth. (For clarity, players need only be registered for their club once, in their correct age group, and any Under 13 and Under 15 players registered for Under 15s are automatically eligible to play for their club in Under 18s. Clubs must note that Under 9s cannot play above Under 13 level and Under 11s cannot play above Under 15 level.) In order to be eligible to play, all players must have been registered on the League website no later than 11.59 p.m. on the day before the player is first required to play. Failure to do so will result in a £10 fine and the match (and three match points in a league game) will be awarded to the opposition.

19.13 A junior registered for one club may register for another club in a higher age group but may not then play for his original club in the higher age group.

19.14 Transfer of players between clubs in the League requires the permission of the Junior Registration Secretary and a player cannot play for a new club until such permission has been given. In Cup competitions a player who has played in a previous round cannot play for a new club in a later round.

Match Results

19.15 Match results for all Under 9 to Under 18 league and cup games (completed, abandoned, cancelled) must be entered in to the appropriate 'Initial Junior Match Result' area of the Wetherby League website (www.wetherbyleague.co.uk) by the home club by 11:59 p.m on the day of the match. If a match is played at a neutral venue then it is the responsibility of the designated home team or, in a cup final, the first drawn team to submit the match result. Failure to do so will result in a £10 fine.

19.16 Match returns for all Under 15 and Under 18 league and cup games (completed or abandoned) must be entered in to the 'Full Junior U15/ U18 Match Return' area of the Wetherby League website (www.wetherbyleague.co.uk) by the home club no later than 11:59 pm on the third day following the match.
