Disciplinary action taken against Bootle
Tuesday 28th August 2018

The L&DCC's Management Committee met with representatives of Bootle CC today.

The meeting was convened to discuss the events following the abandonment of the Ray Digman Knockout Trophy semi final between Bootle and Northern on Sunday August 12th.

The umpires reported Peter Booth of Bootle CC for abusive behaviour with obscene language and the club has dealt with this.

Social media postings by the Bootle captain Craig Prince were abusive to the Northern captain James Cole and the Management Committee imposed a two week ban on Craig Prince, suspended until the end of the 2019 season.

Prince was also directed to apologise to Northern CC and James Cole.
