MCCL Registration Procedures
All Clubs must keep up to date the status of their currently registered players with respect to the MCCL’s rules on eligibility – i.e. which are players are resident, and which are non-resident.
All clubs must have made available to the league’s registration officer, an up to date listing of :
a) all resident players the club wishes to be eligible for 1st XI MCCL games,
b) all non-resident players who the club intends to field in any MCCL match.
For clubs playing in the ECB Middlesex Premier League, it is also a requirement that all players be registered with the ECB, through the Play-Cricket web site.
All ECB Category 3 players (exempt players excluded) and all MCCL non-resident players must submit new registration applications each playing year to maintain their registration and so eligibility for MCCL play.
All other players will be deemed to continue to be registered from year to year providing they have played at least one 1st XI game in the preceding three seasons.
Prior to 31st July
Clubs may register new players to make them eligible to play 1st XI MCCL cricket by submission to the league registration officer using the procedure below:
To register either a new player or an existing unregistered club member, the club must first make a provisional registration application. This provisional application must be made no later than midnight on the Wednesday prior to the player’s first anticipated Saturday game. Provisional notification must be made through the League’s web site. Any additional clarification or assistance if required, can be obtained via a telephone call to the league registration officer.
If the provisional registration procedures are followed the player will be considered registered for the following Saturday’s games. An exception to this would be when a player is already registered and has played for another MCCL club in the current season. In these cases MCCL committee approval for the transfer must be granted before the player becomes registered and so eligible for his new club.
ECB Registration - this must be done through the ECB Play-Cricket system, following whatever procedures are in force at that time.
After 31st July
Clubs require league committee approval to register new players. All applications after 31st July must be made in writing (via Email) to the registration officer.
Applications from players new to a club will almost certainly be turned down unless exception circumstances apply which the committee feels justifies granting the registration application. Notification of any exceptional circumstances must be made in written request.
Applications from existing, but previous unregistered, club members may be considered more favourably, but still require committee approval. It is suggested that all potential 1st XI players be properly registered prior to the 31st July deadline, allowing clubs maximum flexibility of selection!
