Pre-AGM Forum Notice

The League are holding a pre-AGM forum at Totton & Eling CC on Wednesday 17th April starting at 19:30.

This forum will help shape the 2019-20 season and beyond with major changes to rules and the setup of the League being considered. It will provide an opportunity for any club representative(s) to have their say on issues facing the League and its members, suggested resolutions to them and also bring any ideas forward for the League to consider. Whilst not mandatory, we strongly encourage each club to send at least one representative who has experience of a Sunday evening to share their clubs views.

The agenda will be as follows (subject to change):

  • List of attendees and apologies
  • Result of meeting with the Places Leisure Management
  • Results and discussion of Pre-AGM Survey
  • Any other business

A free buffet will be provided and Totton & Eling's bar will be open. If you wish to attend, please e-mail Mike Varney (webmaster@shicl.co.uk) so we can gauge likely attendance figures.


Pre-AGM Survey: Results

The results of the pre-AGM survey are in and can be found by using the link below:

Download the results

Furthermore to these results, the League is planning an open forum one evening in April (exact date and location to be confirmed) where teams will be welcome to discuss the ideas raised in the survey and any other topics they believe have been missed which require discussion. There will also be updates on the League's efforts to gain use of the third court.

These discussions will then be formed into proposals for the AGM in June/July. Whilst not compulsory, clubs will be encouraged to send as many people who wish to attend to have their voice heard. Refreshments are planned to be provided.


Pre-AGM Survey: Have Your Say

With the continual scheduling and timing issues the League is facing fresh in people’s minds, we have put together a short survey aimed at gauging views on a variety of plans aimed at improving the experience for everyone across the season. These views will then be collated into proposals to be voted on at the AGM later in the year.

This survey is aimed at responses on an individual basis (rather than one per team) so please forward this to as many players, coaches, parents, anyone who has experience of a Sunday evening that would like to have their say.

Finals Night 2018-19

The schedule for this season's finals night has been confirmed for Sunday 31st March and can be found on the relevant pages of the website.

If any club wishes to get in contact with him, his number is 07738 878404.


No Fixtures For The Next Two Weeks

With the leisure centre booked with other events for the next two weeks, there are now no fixtures until 10th February. We'll see you in a few weeks.


Chairman's Message

A message from our chairman, Tony Wharton, regarding the amount of time matches are currently taking.

TO ALL TEAMS

Matches are taking over an hour and the following must happen or warnings/penalties will be instigated:

  • Teams must be ready 10 minutes before the scheduled start; that means:
    • reporting to the duty desk
    • completing and signing the team sheets and handing them to the duty team
    • making sure the scorers are ready with the required scoresheets (white and yellow for the home team; pink for the away team)
    • conducting the toss and informing the duty team

  • the Teams must be ready to start on time, that is, in place and fully dressed and equipped for the moment the preceding match finishes
Wasting time - Managers/captains are responsible for making sure no time is wasted in starting either innings, regardless of when the preceding match finishes. Any undue delay will be penalised by a warning and umpires will ensure teams do not waste time. These measures are a necessary effort to make matches run on time and we do not wish to impose penalties unless necessary.


Locks Heath Under 16's Withdrawal

Locks Heath Under 16's have chosen to withdraw from the league; as a result, fixtures for the Under 16 Division are currently under review.

  • 6th January - Compton & Chandlers Ford vs Locks Heath

Remaining Fixtures

Due to the cancellation of the February 4th fixtures we have had to reorganise the fixture list for the remainder of the season and also extend the season to April 8th.

As we have to accommodate variables such as cup rounds, university terms and other individual club nuances, there will have to be a reconstruction of the remaining fixtures - so please check carefully when these are updated. We have tried to keep as many of the original fixtures in tact, but this is not always possible.


4th February

Due to a scheduling conflict, the majority of the fixtures originally arranged for 4th February have had to be postponed. Details of when these matches will be played will be sent out as soon as possible.


Happy New Year

Happy New Year from everyone at the South Hampshire Indoor Cricket League.


Merry Christmas

Last Minute Changes

Due to another scheduling issue with Fleming Park, some Easter Sunday fixtures have been lost. Attempts are being made to re-arrange for this Sunday (6th). Please check your e-mails and the website for more info.

This issue affects:

  • Langley Manor vs. Hythe & Dibden A
  • Broadstone vs. Hursley Park A
  • Peartree Wasps vs. Sway Seahawks
  • Southampton Community B vs. Friends
  • Oakmount vs. Bramshaw
  • Whalesmead Thistle vs. Hythe & Dibden B
  • BAT vs. Burridge B
  • Southampton University D vs. CooperVison

Please let one of the committee know ASAP if you are able to raise a side and play your fixture this Sunday (6th).


A Joint Message

If any cricket player or spectator is injured whilst playing or watching cricket at Fleming Park Leisure Centre, then the League and the Centre accept no liability. You play and watch at your own risk.

Please ensure that players wear the appropriate protective gear and that you take care whilst playing or watching.


Double Booking Issues

Unfortunately the league has fallen foul of some double booking issues with Fleming Park where their system seems to be inadequate and we have lost another Sunday (31st January) and possibly some of 14th February.

It seems certain that we will have to play some games on days other than Sunday to be able to complete the league programme. These could be either Saturday 16th January or Wednesdays or Thursdays in Jan/Feb. Can you please let us know which of these would be preferable for your club. It is hoped at this stage that no team will be required to play more than one non-Sunday fixture (subject to any further cancellations).


Scoring Solution

If both sides wish to have a scorer keep score during matches, please have the home team use the white and yellow copies of the scoresheet and the away team use the pink sheet.

Thanks to Compton & Chandlers Ford for the suggestion.


Cup Draws

Congratulations to all teams who made it through the recent rounds of the cup competitions. The draws for the next rounds have been made and will be put on the website over the coming days.
