Umpire/Scorer Training

Pre-season TVCL training this year will be arranged by the ACOs from Berkshire and Buckinghamshire. It was mutually agreed to divide the normal pre-season meet into two, because of numbers and the amount of training required.

The sessions are:

Berks COA: Sunday 2 April 2017 (Wokingham CC): DLS training for umpires; Wednesday 19 April 7.00pm (Slough CC); DLS training for DLS managers, scorers & captains.

Bucks ACO (training/social evenings Tring Park CC 7:30 p.m): Tuesday 18 April: DLS; TVCL Regulations for 50/50 & 100-overs Formats (plus other issues);  Tuesday 16 May  Law 42 & other issues [20/3/17]



2017 Season - Reminders

• Captains in L1-4 are likely to get automatic notices from WTU of their umpiring appointments for the forthcoming weekend. For most L4 and some L3 matches these notices will tell you that you have a club umpire rather than a panel one. This may seem confusing but it does actually say, very clearly, ‘Club Umpire’. The reason for this is that you need to complete assessments for all umpires, both panel and club.[updated 7/3/2017]

• For captains and scorers in Levels where there are Win/Lose matches which are affected by the :weather the DLS G50 parameter should be set to 245.


TVCL League Structure 2017

Updated details of the 2017 structure have been published - go to the Documents page (under 'Contacts & Administration') . The structure at Level 9 has been changed.and there are now only 9 teams in Division 6a following the withdrawal of Chiswick and Whitton 3.

The reviseded full fixture list for 2017 also appears on the Fixtures pages of the website [7/3/2017]


Links with Play-Cricket

In the close season we have established contacts with Play-Cricket and progress is being made towards .getting our results and scorecard data accepted automatically. In view of past problems we do not wish to say any more thanthis at present, but we are hopeful that something will be working in the coming season.

This would mean that clubs which use Pitchero, whose system, simply downloads what is on Play-Cricket, would avoid having to enter these details twice - but we are not there yet! [7/3/2017]


Website Statistics

Nerds - and others - may be interested to see how busy our new website has been! Since January there have been well over a quarter-million visits and over 7 million hits. Details are under the Documents section (in the 'Contacts & Admin' menu). The link address is http://www.tvlcricket.com/documents/TraffictoNov22.pdf - unfortunately this link does not work directly but it's given here so you can copy and paste it into your browser if you're confident with using this method.

TVCL Expansion - Update

The Thames Valley Cricket League is one of the largest leagues in the country, covering a broad area to the West of London and including clubs from across seven different counties. It is an integral part of the Home Counties Premier League structure.

The League invited applications from nearby clubs to join a proposed expansion of TVCL in 2018 and the window for submissions is now closed. Sixteen applications have been received from prospective clubs.

The consultation and ground survey process has begun and the Development Sub Committee will make their recommendations to the Management Committee over the course of the next month. Once approved by the Management Committee, the final list of clubs proposed for election to the League will be presented for voting at a Special General Meeting on 26th April.
