Fines to date
Tuesday 16th June 2015

In days of austerity when some clubs are worrying where the next penny is coming from, or as in one case, being threatened with relegation or even possible extinction because they have lost ClubMark owing to their inability to field an Under 9 XI, the L&DCC has issued the following statement:-

The fines from 1st October 2014 to 31st May 2015 amount to just over 2400 based on reports from the Assistant Results Secretaries and other sources.

The following eleven clubs have fines totalling over 75:

Ainsdale, Birkenhead St Mary's, Formby, Liverpool, Lytham, Maghull, Orrell Red Triangle, Parkfield Liscard, Rainhill and Southport & Birkdale.

The total fines are approximately 400 more than at the same stage last year which is mostly attributable to the large number of conceded matches.  Even though we reduced the fine for 3rd XIs conceding, the total fine for all concessions is 620.  Missed general meetings also contributes over 500 to the total.

The eagle eyed amongst you will have noticed that reference is made to eleven clubs but only ten are listed.

Is that a typing error or just that someone can't count?
