NOTES TO CRICKETERS
Selection meetings will take place every Monday evening. Please ensure that you set your availability via the club app (Pitchero) no later than 5pm on Monday for the following Saturday. Teams will be posted via the app and on the Club website.
Once a member has declared him or herself available to play, they are not expected to cry-off. However, the committee understands that, very occasionally, a cry-off is unavoidable. If you have to cry-off, please contact your team Captain by telephone as early as possible.
When a player cries off, it can affect up to 5 Richmond teams, weakening sides and potentially leaving one team short. Persistent or specious or late cry-offs will be reflected in subsequent selection decisions.
Members who persistently arrive late for match meet times can expect the Selection Committee to take punitive action against them. This may include players being dropped down through the sides, irrespective of their normal team position.
Arrival times for all matches are at the discretion of each Captain. As a general rule of thumb, the Committee expects that all players should be on the ground a minimum of 60 minutes before the scheduled start of a match.
If planning to travel to an away match without calling at the Club (“going direct”), please first check with your Captain that your car is not needed to transport other players. Only travel direct once your Captain has been informed and agreed.
Match fees are paid by every player, at the end of each match, as a contribution to the costs of teas, balls, ground hire, umpires and scorers. Please pay your match fees promptly via the club app (Pitchero). The rates for 2023 will be confirmed prior to the first matches of the season.
