The new season and "Green" result sheets

The first matches of the new season were played yesterday and several umpires were unaware that the BDCL "Green" result sheets were no longer required to be completed. Not only were some umpires unaware but also several clubs!! Whatever our feelings are regarding the discontinuation of the "Green" sheets it is a situation that we have to live with.

In the event that umpires need to report late starts, no scorers, late completion of over's, time delays, or any other matter they would normally endorse on the result sheet then the instruction is, at present, that they inform the League Secretary, G France, by whatever means they can, e.g. email, post, phone, etc. Also ensure that both team captains and scorers know your name and number.

Whilst this is not entirely satisfactory at present we see no alternative way of doing this.
