Results and Play-Cricket Housekeeping
As we start the 2017 season, just a few final reminders to with submission of results and Play-Cricket.
Teams in Division One, Division Two and T20 using neutral umpires must submit an online assessment (available on the website) of the standing umpires by the following Friday, or risk a points deduction.
Scorecards must be posted on Play-Cricket by a member of the home side within 48 hours of the match being played. The result should be confirmed by a member of the away side by the following Friday, by clicking on the ‘cross’ to turn to a ‘tick’.
To get to the Results page in Play-Cricket the administrator must be in ‘Site Administration’
Fines for Play-Cricket will be suspended until the 1st June to ensure that everyone using the new system is acquainted and any teething issues ironed out. Obviously to meet the deadline of the Weekly Round Up if administrators could attempt to meet the 48 hour deadline in the first month, and if not, let me know the reasons, so that I can help resolve any issues.
Just some pointers that may make life easier at the beginning with Play-Cricket –
Firstly merging duplicate player records
If there is more than one instance of player in your members database use the Merge Records option to combine into one record (Guide is attached). The parent record should be a Full Name of the player – if a player has personally registered with Play-Cricket and your club themselves, they will not have an asterisk against their name in the members list – and this should be the parent record if you have to merge.
Secondly, adding players to your NECL squad
To ease selection of picking players for opposition administrators please try to add as many of your NECL players as possible to the NECL squad – for most clubs this will just be for your NECL 1st XI, but for others you will need to add players to NECL T20 and NECL 2nd XI squads.
