Dear Clubs, further to the vote to restructure Rereational Cricket in the West Midlands as promised we are providing an update.
The West Midlands League Cricket Forum Working Party has been formed to consider the finer details the re-structure of BDPCL and the associated County Cricket Leagues at the end of the 2018 season met for the first time recently .
The following topics were discussed: -
The immediate priority is to resolve numbers 2 and 3 above and it was agreed that those clubs who are affected will need to make a final decision on their destination by 31st July 2018. Those clubs will be contacted, shortly, by BDPCL or the County Board to which they are affiliated, to discuss their preferences.
The Working Party consists of
County League Representatives (Adam Phillips (SCCL) Kevin Herbert (SCCC) Graham Seal (WCL) Stuart Lampitt (WCL) )
BDPCL (Nick Archer)
ECB (Richard Cox and Ged McDougall)
County Cricket Board Lead Officers (as required)
In observation – Bernard Szypulski (WCL Chair) – Mr Szypulski is attending due to the size of the WCL/the interaction with Cotswold Hills League/League Governance matters.
