Now that the lockdown regulations are to continue until 19 July I propose that we continue to charge match fees of £10 for home matches and £5 for away matches as at present. The only exception is if the club at away fixtures provides teas (as some clubs are now doing) players pay a match fee of £10 to cover the costs. After 19 July when normal arrangements should apply, match fees will be £12 as previously agreed at the 2019 AGM. Captains please note when completing collection sheets.
Payment of match fees - We have had a case recently when some players said they would pay match fees online. Subsequently not all did and this has caused extra work for officials. In addition it left the captains short of the necessary money on the day to pay all expenses at the end of the match, again creating an extra amount of work for your treasurer. Please ensure you can pay match day fees in cash on the day to help the club remain efficient and to fulfil its commitments to our host clubs and officials.
Subscriptions - many thanks to the majority of players who have paid their subscriptions. However I note that some who are representing the County have yet to pay their subscription. Please sort this with your captain at the next fixture or pay online with your name and reference subs. Subscriptions should be settled by the end of June after which consideration will be given to including other members who have paid their subscriptions but as yet have not been selected. If you have not done so, please avoid embarrassment by paying your £10 as quickly as possible.
