DISCIPLINARY ACTION

Date: 7th July 2017

A club player, official and qualified umpire has been banned for sending an obscene and offensive email to the L&DCC Management Committee.

Karl Skelton of Southport & Birkdale CC objected to decisions made by the Cricket Committee regarding several failures to follow procedures laid down in the Playing Regulations for matches to be rearranged because of ground unavailability.  His email of 24th June to the Management Committee was grossly offensive and wholly inexcusable.

This offence is not directly included in the L&DCC Disciplinary Regulations and falls to be dealt with by the Chairman of the Disciplinary Committee under Clause 1.8.

The Chairman, Richard McCullagh, has imposed an immediate 6 week ban from playing, organising, officiating or participating in any cricket with a further 6 weeks suspended until the end of the 2018 season.
