The Union wrote to clubs in September 2014 advising that following meetings with clubs it would further look at the current League structures within the Premier and Senior Leagues before reporting back to clubs with an update prior to the 2015 season.
The Domestic Cricket Directorate led by Neale Matthews has consulted with a number of individuals/clubs across all the relevant leagues over the last months and subsequently reported back to the Union’s Management Board Meeting on 19th February.
The Board have unanimously accepted the recommendation of the Domestic Cricket Directorate which is that currently there is no clear desire amongst clubs to amend the current league structures. Therefore, the Management Board does not intend to hold any “special” meeting of clubs prior to the start of the 2015 season to discuss league structures and will not put forward any notice of motion in relation to the amendment of senior league structures at the 2015 AGM.
However, whilst the Management Board recommend no change to the current league structures at present, it does acknowledge that clubs still have the right to submit notices of motion ahead of the 2015 AGM proposing that league structures be amended for the 2016 (and/or 2017) season.
All clubs should therefore be fully aware that there is potential for this to happen and that the league they might envisage being in for the 2016 season as a result of 2015 results could potentially differ should any proposal brought to the AGM be successful.
