Scarcroft CC & the Wetherby League fixtures 2018

Scarcroft CC have today requested that they field only one team in the 2018 Wetherby Cricket League and that this should be their second team. They have told us that they have lost a significant number of 1st team players and will not be able to field two sides. To keep the balance of each division as level as possible this request has been accepted.

Scarcroft 1st team will be removed from Division 1 and any 1st team cup competitions they had entered whilst their 2nd team will continue to compete in Division 3. They will be treated as a second team moving forward. Therefore they will be entered into 2nd team cup competitions and will not be able to field an overseas player.

The departure of Scarcroft 1st team will result in the following changes to the 2018 WCL set up:

Kippax will replace Scarcroft in Division 1

Walton Park will replace Kippax in Division 2

Scholes 'A' will replace Walton Park in Division 3

We were also informed this week that there are to be changes to the York & District Cricket League fixtures. Two teams in the Y&D Premier League have merged. This has left their Premier League short of a club which will result in clubs moving up through their Divisions. This could affect the fixtures of Bilton CC and Wetherby CC which in turn affect the Wetherby League fixtures.

As a result of the above the WCL has no option but to do the 2018 League fixtures afresh. Therefore please disregard previously distributed League fixture lists. We hope to have the amended fixtures to you by the end of this month but we must now wait until the Y&DCL have completed their amended fixtures. The cup draws will remain the same save the removal of Scarcroft from the Senior Evening Cup.

We hope that there is a silver lining to this change, allowing us to find better solutions to the challenges we have had with Division 4. With Scarcroft dropping to 1 team we will now have an even number of teams in the 2018 WCL. There will be 10 teams in Divisions 1, 2 and 3 and 12 teams in Division 4. Teams in Division 4 will now no longer have a blank weekend, save for the Bank Holiday weekends and hopefully the Division 4 fixtures won’t include so many Sunday fixtures. Any clubs who were looking at moving their current Sunday fixtures no longer need to do so until the revised fixture list is created.

In light of the recent news regarding East Keswick and Scarcroft can any clubs who think they might be struggling please let us know urgently so we can have a conversation. We don’t want to be in a position where we are again left facing a rework of the League fixtures.

Apologies to any clubs who have produced printed fixtures booklets/cards but we have no other option.
