On 7th September in the 1st XI match between Southport Trinity and Caldy four players were reported by the umpires. The Southport Trinity player Ashkay Sreenivasan was banned for one week for abuse of equipment and also banned for another week suspended until the end of 2020.  The Southport Trinity player Mark Prince was banned for two weeks for abuse of an opponent and also banned for two weeks suspended until the end of 2020.  Two Caldy players, James Ashcroft and Alan Mellor, were banned for for one week for dissent and were also given one week bans suspended to the end of 2020.

On 14th September in the 1st XI matches between Bootle & Formby and Rainhill & Lytham a player from each of Formby and Lytham were reported, one for dissent and equipment abuse and the other for equipment abuse and loud foul language.  Both Formby and Lytham were not prepared to take disciplinary action so the Disciplinary Committee had no option but to refer the offences for a Disciplinary Hearing (Clause 3.2.3 of the L&DCC Disciplinary Regulations).  A hearing will be held at the end of October to hear these appeals.  If the clubs' failures to act are found to be based on unreasonable grounds the clubs and players can expect to receive increased penalties.
