2018 SEASON DATES  First game on May 9. Fixtures scheduled up to July 11.
July 18 & July 25 will be rain days


Proposals being put forward at the Gloucester Evening Cricket League 2017 AGM
The AGM will be held on Wednesday 31 January 2018

POSSIBLE CHANGES TO THE FORMAT – The driver for (a) to (c) is to reduce conceded games

a) Reduced team size in the lower Divisions (which can be increased if both captains agree
beforehand). (i) 11,10,9,8 for Divs 1-4 respectively, or (ii)11,11,9,9 or whatever

b) If agreed team size is 9 or 8, then bowler limit increased to 25% overs per bowler

c) Fewer overs, with starts at 6.30pm

d) Is there any appetite to have some interface with the CGCA Challenge Cup?
Maybe our top
two teams at the end of June go into the CGCA knock-out?

Minutes of the 2017 AGM held on 31 January 2018

Present: Representatives from Aston Ingham, Birdlip & Brimpsfield, Coopers Edge, Cranham,Gloucester AIW, Highnam Court, Ullenwood Bharat, Upton St Leonards and Woodpeckers.

Apologies from Ernie Allen (retiring chairman), Charlton Kings, Painswick and Tibberton

1. Andy Russell took the Chair in the absence of a chairman.

2. The 2017 season was, by and large, very good. Just 4 games were cancelled for weather, thanks to having spare rain days. But there were 12 conceded games – too high a figure. The 2017 winners – Ullenwood Bharat, Charlton Kings, Tewkesbury and Painswick were congratulated.
The meeting was content that no individual trophies would be awarded.

3. The Treasurer reported that after the pushes to reduce money owing from clubs, the financial position is better than it has been for many years. There is £443.20 in the bank. There is therefore no need to change the affiliation fee which stays at £5 per team. It was decided that three new perpetual trophies would be purchased to replace those lost – we only have the Division One trophy at the moment.

4. Alan Shackell (Coopers Edge) was elected chairman. Andy Russell (Secretary), Paul Singh (Treasurer) and Paul Brooke (Committee member) were re-elected. Alan then took the Chair.

5. Full membership was approved for Woodpeckers and Dymock. Cranham CC’s application to join was accepted.

6. The 2018 Divisions were approved. At the moment there are exactly 24 teams. Tibberton CC has stated it may not be able to continue and it was decided that if that happens then Woodpeckers would be promoted to Division 3 to take Tibberton’s place.

7. The proposals sent out with the AGM calling notice for new formats were discussed, but were all rejected. However the meeting suggested flexibility on team size, start time and number of overs should be possible if agreed. Captains must agree by the Tuesday evening before a fixture if they wish to alter start time and team size. It is too late to change those details after that. Captains are also advised that if they start late they should reduce the number of overs to finish in the light.
