With the weather not having been great recently and more to follow today in some areas, I thought it would be useful to remind managers on what to do if your match is rained off.

If you are not looking to replay it, please add an abandoned result on Play-Cricket, adding any scorecard details that might have happened before it rained if you started. If you didn't start, it still goes down as abandoned.

If you are wanting to replay it, you need to email Graham Beck with the new date inside 7 days of the original match. You don't have to replay it inside 7 days, but we do need a date by then. Once the 7 days have lapsed the fixture will be locked and can't be amended.

Similarly if you do need to change a match date and both teams agree, please email Graham to change the fixture date. We are not expecting this to happen very often and opposition are not obliged to agree to a change.

It's great to see so many full scorecards being published. This is going to create a great legacy for these young players to go back to games they have played in for many years to come and should provide useful evidence for Talent ID and ongoing player monitoring at county level.

Finally there are more friendly requests below. Please let me know if you would like to be added to the list.
