Photo ID

Photo ID cards are now andatory requirement for the Division One, Two and Three for both 1st and 2nd elevens.

The new league season is knocking on our door and the Registration Secretary is waiting to receive completed new registration forms from all member clubs in both 1st and 2nd divisions. These forms together with four passport size photos of each player needs to be sent to Naresh by the end of March, for him to process and prepare your clubs cards. He would like to be able to distribute all member clubs their photo id cards at the ball collection evening

Please note: If the player/s and the club are not in possession of your player/s ID cards, that player/s will not be able to play in any league match until these cards are received. It is difficult for Dhiru to process cards at one time all arriving in the last couple of weeks before the season starts as he cannot guarantee to have these done in time for the start of the season

DBS checks and Self Declarations

Who needs a DBS check?
The following list has been developed by the ECB as guidance for clubs. Club Child Welfare Officers, however, will need to assess the role of individuals within their clubs in making a decision on whether or not to require a DBS Check.

All Middlesex Championship Panel Umpires are required to have a DBS check. In addition ACU&S scorers are also required to have a DBS check.

DBS checks have to be done through the ECB using a ‘Disclosure Application Form’. This form, plus instructions regarding its completion, can be obtained from the League Secretary Sue Galagher. DBS checks have to be repeated every three years. League Secretary Sue Gallagher is able to verify DBS.

Self Declaration forms should be completed via the Club’s Child Welfare Officer.
