MCC Changes to Law 41.7 - Beamers
MCC have just announced changes to the Law that saw bowlers suspended after two non-pitching deliveries. This will come into effect next season so all umpires and players need to read and understand the changes which can be viewed at:
Interested in becomind a scorer? Then this could be for YOU?
We are looking to hold a scorers level 1 course over two weekends during Feb March 2019.
Should you feel this would benefit your club in any way for (both present scorers or potential scorers) please reply to this e-mail address. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Idealy we would also like to use local cricket clubs to host these events as we are trying to keep the costs down and this would help a great deal.
Please let me know if your club would be able to help and if you have anyone interested.
Information on obtaining new or re-newing DBS certificates
A number of OCA umpires need to apply for DBS certificates and some will be about to expire, so the following notes may be of assistance?
The important thing is that ALL UMPIRES must hold a current DBS....
1. Ian Royle can initiate the process for anyone who needs a DBS, either new or renewing, and would need name as on passport/driving licence, date of birth and email address.
2. Any club welfare officer should also be able to do this or the welfare team at OCB
3. Anybody who obtained their DBS through the ECB will get a reminder.
4. The 3 year time scale is decided by the ECB as the governing body but the DBS certificate itself only has an issue date not a "sell by" date. This is the same for any organisation to decide how long they want to leave it before a new certificate is required as technically the certificate is only valid on the day of issue when the checks have been completed as you could get a conviction the day after your certificate is issued!
5. OCB Welfare team can check if somebody has a certificate as they get a full list of those issued through ECB for the county.
