Please note that any club failing to attend will be fined under league rule, Meetings 6g.
INFORMATION: Please note there is no captains meeting this year.
Please note that Derbyshire CCL do not allow dual registration.
Therefore you are either SNCL registered to play Saturday's or for the DCCL.
This, we believe, is the only league in the country enforcing this rule.
If you wish to transfer to the DCCL then please be aware your SNCL registration must be removed or your transfer will not be accepted by Chris Higginbottom. We will not remove the SNCL registration without the player contacting the league to request it.
As the ECB request we make every effort to "Get the game on" we believe the above is against this spirit.
If a player wishes, due to their circumstances, play across borders for two club's in order to get a game, the SNCL will not stop them.
Of course, via the Notts CB any player, banned by any league, will not be allowed to register and play during that ban.
