In 2014 the Leinster Cricket Union decided to introduce new arrangements for registering players competing in Cricket Leinster Open and Women Competitions. A player can now register directly through the Cricket Leinster website. There is a fee of €15 for all registered players who are 18 or over on 1st January of the current year.
Cricket Leinster, in conjunction with its partners and sponsors, is responsible for the promotion and development of cricket in the province. Great strides have been made in recent years helping new clubs to form, bringing the sport to new areas, introducing boys and girls to the sport in primary schools and supporting cricket for young people with a disability.
The cost of providing for these efforts is over €100,000 per annum and rising. Nearly all of this money goes on employing Cricket Development Officers and Coaches who go into schools and clubs across the province. There is a lot more work to be done and new areas to be visited. The money collected from players is dedicated solely for the purposes set out above.
In order for an adult player to be eligible to play in any competition under the aegis of Cricket Leinster, a person must, subject to regulation 1.2, meet one of the following criteria:
1.1[i] be eligible to play international cricket for Ireland under current International Cricket Council [ICC] Rules
1.1[ii] be approved by the Open Competitions Committee to play cricket in Leinster as an Overseas Player in accordance with the relevant section of these General Playing Regulations
1.1[iii] be an EU national resident in Ireland, a non-EU national resident in Ireland who is entitled to reside and work in Ireland or a full-time student of a recognised second or third level college in Ireland,
1.1[iv] be part of a ‘cricket exchange programme’ as approved by the Open Competitions Committee under the relevant section of these General Playing Regulations.
1.2 A person shall not be eligible to play cricket in a Leinster competition under S1.1 [ii]. [iii] or [iv] if that person has played, within the previous 12 months prior to the receipt of application, in a First Class Match as defined by the ICC or in an overs competition for countries, provinces or regions that would normally participate in First Class Cricket or such other overs competitions as the Open Competitions Committee considers the equivalent of the above.”
In order to play in Open and Womens Competitions run by the Leinster Cricket Union [LCU], all players must be registered. For youth players, those under the age of 18 of 1st January of the current year, registration is made on their behalf by a parent / legal guardian or by the club of which they are a member.
Where a parent / guardian is making the registration the process includes the granting of permission for the youth player to compete in adult competitions. Consent is also required in respect of other governance matters relating to child safety and data protection.
While it is normally expected that a parent / guardian will make the registration, in some cases the club concerned will have arranged with the LCU to undertake the registration process. In such cases the club will ask a parent / legal guardian to sign a consent form which will be forwarded to the LCU. You should check with your club to determine if such an arrangement is in place before registering.
There is a €5 fee for registration. This is required to validate the registration process. Any monies received will be used solely for the support and promoting of youth cricket in Leinster.
