On Thursday 19th April we have another evening of explaining the MCC New Laws of Cricket - the presenters being experienced Umpire Course tutors : John Mangham, Paul Chambers and Brian Jones. I also hope Steve Garratt ex-1st Class Umpire will be with us.

This meeting is not only for Panel umpires who could not attend last week's presentation but moreso it is perhaps essential that captains and club umpires attend to be aware of these New Laws for the coming season.

The meeting is at Trent Bridge (Radcliffe Road end) in the Boundary's Edge Suite (1st floor) starting promptly at 7.15p.m.

Every club has received information about this; it is to be found in the package with the League Handbooks that accompanied your club's cricket balls from the Distribution Evening.


Following on from the latest committee meeting, the make of the divisions for 2017 have been confirmed.

There are a few changes from the previously released divisions so please check the following link to the play-cricket site for confirmation of where your teams will play in the summer.


If thunder follows a lightning flash by thirty seconds or less, people in the open are at risk of being struck by lightning. (This is based on the fact that in 30 seconds, the sound travels about 10km, so, in these circumstances; the lightning is less than 10km away). (A) Play shall cease immediately, in the event that a lightning flash is followed by thunder less than 40 seconds later. Play shall not resume until 30 minutes after the l...ast lightning flash. (B) Immediately following the suspension of play, persons may enter the field of play in order to lay pitch covers. However, no person may remain on, or enter, the field of play in the event a lightning flash is followed by thunder less than 30 seconds later (where the thunder is within 30 seconds), or for 30 minutes thereafter. (C) ALL players, officials and other participants shall remain off the field of play for the duration of the period that play is suspended under this Playing Condition. If there are no covers available, the extra allowance of time is not required Rationale: To avoid the odd circumstance of people leaving the field, then running back out to cover the pitch!!

For guidance only as from ACU.

From umpire secretary Paul Massey

This is covered under the general requirements that the match is played with strict regard to the health and safety of the players. If there is lighting around, then the teams should leave the field. There is also the issue that the players are not covered by the normal club insurance should there be a lighting strike and the teams or umpires were aware of the possibility of lighting - which they usually are.
