Instruction and Guidance for Umpires - June 2016

The Seevent Board strongly recommends that all Umpires standing in its competition (at whatever level) be covered by insurance in any event that they be sued for negligence under Health and Safety Laws or other.
This might arise if any player(s) be injured and it can be proven that this transpired because of a wrong decision made relevant to fitness of play, to include ground, light or weather (to include lightning).
Every Umpire officiating in the Seevent Competition must therefore take the time and trouble to read and understand the latest recommendations from the ECB/ACO regarding fitness for play and to comply with the Laws of Cricket. It is not the responsibility of the Seevent Board to publicise these recommendations.
However when and where possible the Seevent Board will post on its website any changes to the current advices (June 2016).
All current members of the ECBACO are automatically covered by insurance which is included in their annual subscription. Anybody who is not a member of the ECBACO (to include anyone who has not renewed his/her ECBACO membership) who stands in the Seevent Competition is strongly advised to make their own arrangements regarding this personal and necessary insurance cover.
For further guidance please contact the Seevent Hon. Secretary in the first instance.

Seevent Playing Regulations 1.4

Please note that is no actual cut off time to comeplete a match and that all matches should be completed if at all possible as per Playing Regulation 1.4.

The Close of Play Time is ONLY used for the calculation of overs remaining to be played following an interruption. If, in the opinion of the umpires, the conditions for the players are safe, and the light playable, the match will continue until the required number of overs has been bowled or one side has won.

Constitution, Rules and Regulations

These have been updated as a result of the decisions at the AGM and can be found via the Constitution, Rules and Regulations page.
It is essential that Captains, Organisers and Umpires are familiar with them for the coming season.
The Committee have agreed the following by way of clarification:

Qualification of players:

Rule 2 (b): All players must be registered on the Seevent National 60+/70+ County Cricket Play-Cricket website. No unregistered player will be permitted to play in any Championship match. Click here for the guidelines on how to register your players for the Seevent Championship.

Rule 2 (h) is new and means that a player may not play for their 2nd XI once he/she has played 7 or more games for the 1st XI in the coming season.
This helps define the words ‘regular members of the 1st XI’ in Rule 2 (i).
2(i) is meant to cover using 1st XI players making up the numbers in the 2nd XI, rather than genuine cases of borderline 1st/2ndXI players. Counties will want to use common sense in following this rule and not debar players from having a full game of cricket.

The reference to ‘current international players’ in 2 (i) means those who represented England in the season 2015 or in 2015/16 overseas. If Counties want to play such a player in their 2nd XI for whatever reason, they should contact the Secretary. A list of current internationals will appear Here shorlty.

Players who are not eligible for a County or Wales under Rule 2 (b) require special registration. Counties and Wales should ensure that such ineligible players are specially registered with the Secretary before they play in a match. A list of such players will appear Here shortly.

Penalties for playing an ineligible player are set out in Rule 2 (g).

Please remind all your scorers and all your officials who enter scorecards that all losing teams should be allocated the appropriate number of batting and bowling bonus points. The winning team receives the standard 22 points for a win only.
