40-OVERS PER SIDE PREMIERSHIP GAMES
SWOFFERS Premiership cricket will be 40 overs per side in 2015 and sides have been given the go ahead to bring in guest players from the UK and beyond in a bid to raise the strength of the game.
The Premiership will be concentrated into a six-week slot in the second half of the season to maximise use of university students returning to the island and following a recommendation from the annual domestic cricket discussion meeting held at the Cobo Bay Hotel on Monday, more games are likely to be played on a Saturday.
The top flight of the evening league will comprise just 5 teams - St Pierre, Cobo, Rovers, Wanderers and Griffins, played on grass over 10 weeks from 2 June.
The meeting gave the green light for top division registered players to drop down to Division Two in the early weeks of the season - with players been allowed a maximum of 2 games and clubs restricted to a maximum of 2 top flight players in any one game.
This new allowance is intended to ensure teams turning out with 11 players and the top players are encouraged not to take on key roles during these guest appearances.
THE funeral of long serving GACUS umpire Allen Barnett will be staged at Le Foulon at noon on Wednesday 17 December.
