WDJCU Secretary Ann Hargie writes, “Please see the online document summarising the new leagues, and rules, for this coming season as defined by the WDJCU Committee. This has been discussed at length and is predominately in alignment with the Cricket Scotland Pathway. There has been an addition of an Under 12 hardball league to allow a transition period due to the volume of last season’s Under 11 teams and the age jump from Under 11 to Under 14. Club registration is accessible on the website, and if clubs could return their submission by January the 27th deadline please. May I also ask that all clubs update their contact details for each age group if there has been any changes within their club structure please.”
