Disciplinary Report Agreed Action 02 2015 - Andrew Horsfield (Newton le Willows)
Thursday 18th June 2015

An Umpires' report has been received from a recent 1st XI First Division match and  a ban have been issued.

In the match Maghull v Newton le Willows on Saturday June 6th, the Newton le Willows player Andrew Horsfield was reported for repeated verbal abuse and dissent warranting a minimum TWO week ban.

Horsfield was already subject to a TWO week ban suspended to the end of the 2015 season for an offence committed in August last year thus creating a potential minimum FOUR week ban.

Changes to the L&DCC Disciplinary Regulations, approved at the 2015 AGM and based on those recommended by ECB, include a requirement for an automatic hearing for a ban of FOUR or more weeks. 

A hearing was therefore held on Monday June 15th and the panel imposed a FOUR week ban (one week already served) commencing at midnight on Friday June 19th.  In addition the panel imposed a further FOUR week ban suspended for twelve months from the date of the offence.
