Resolutions for 2016 AGM

Resolutions for the 2016 Annual General Meeting

Resolution 1 – Committee resolution
It is proposed that the selection policy for 2017 be adopted

Rayleigh CC Selection policy 2017

This policy sets out guidelines for the selection of adult tams in 2017. The guidelines should be followed by the selection committee whenever possible but it may be necessary to overrule them if very late drop outs occur, for example, on a Saturday morning.

As a first principle the rules of the leagues within which the club plays, and the rules of the club as a whole will be followed.

For the adult teams the team captains from each team or a suitable representative if the captain is unavailable shall form the selection committee. An independent Chairman of the selection committee shall be elected at The Club Annual General Meeting. 

The teams shall be selected primarily on the basis of ability, and the aim is to produce in each team a balance of abilities e.g. batting, pace bowling, spin bowling and a specialist wicket keeper. Thus ideally if an opening batsman is unavailable he should be replaced by on opening batsman from the next lower side. captains will normally stay with their team. Vice captains shall be treated as other players except in the absence of the captain.

Players dropped from a team should be contacted personally by the relegating captain with an explanation. Players must be aware that their selection for a particular team depends upon and is frequently governed by the availability of other players. For example, a player may appear to be ‘dropped’ after a good performance if a similar player previously from a higher team becomes available. Availability is not within the control of the selection committee and it can only work with what is available. Players returning from absence cannot assume that they will return to the team they last played for.

Prior to selection each team captain will check on the availability of his players and propose his selection to the committee. This will be discussed and the team selected by the committee as a whole. The captain shall advise all players of their selection as soon as possible after the selection meeting. The captain of the lowest team on each day shall also select a number of reserves. Should any player become unavailable after selection any movement of players should be discussed by the affected captain and the captain of the next lower team to agree a suitable replacement and the captain of the lowest team shall select a suitable player from the reserves. In normal circumstance, no player shall be moved more than one team up or down from their last appearance.

Players will be expected to play in the team where they are chosen. Exceptionally a player may request to play at home due to work / home commitments.  Similarly, a parent may ask to play in the same team as his son or daughter.  Such requests will be considered the committee but these requests will normally only allowed if the team requested is one team lower than the player would not play in.

All members of the selection committee should have an up to date DBS clearance.
