Legal action over an overseas player
Thursday 3rd August 2017
Clubs anticipating engaging the services of young overseas players for next season may wish to read the following articles concerning Frinton on Sea Cricket Club and a young Australian cricketer.
The outcome may prevent UK players from going abroad to play cricket during our winter.
If Frinton win, it could eventually set a precedent that would clear the way for many other players to return to action in club cricket across England and Wales. While around 110 players are understood to be directly affected by the ruling, the consequences for future generations could be far reaching.
The case is being heard in court in Chelmsford today.
