Club Vacancy

The South Yorkshire Senior Cricket have a vacancy in the Championship Division for the 2019 season.  This vacancy is open to any club outside the pyramid system, which meets the strict criteria of entry to this level and are within the catchment area of the Yorkshire South pyramid.  Clubs interested in this vacancy or interested in applying to join the SYSCL at any level must ensure they follow the YCB Guidelines "Transfer of clubs" which are; 

9.4.1    A Club affiliated to A member league shall not negotiate with another member league with the intention to leave the former to join the latter without first obtaining permission, in writing through the YCB Club Transfer Form, from the member League to which it is affiliated. Such permission shall only be withheld if the club has failed to fulfil its financial obligations or has failed to observethe Rules of the member (league) in respect of withdrawal of membership which should not conflict with the Rules of the YCB. In the event of a dispute between the parties not being resolved within 21 days YCB may be asked to mediate in special circumstances on a case by case basis.

9.4.2    Permission to negotiate shall not be interpreted as resignation or dismissal but should the date by which resignations are due to be received pass without further written notification of future action from the club, the written permission to negotiate shall then be deemed to be invalid without further action being necessary by the member (league).

9.4.3     Clubs (or one of their teams) wishing to resign from any League or Association should give notice in writing before 30th June in the year previous to the season in which they intend to play in the new League or Association.

9.4.4   A list of clubs whoare promoted or relegated into another league within the pyramid structure will be given to the YCB at the end of the season. Transfer forms will not be required. 

Any successful applicant will be placed at a level appropriate to their current status. For access to Division 2 and above, applicants must field a 2nd XI in a bona fide Saturday League, although this does not necessarily have to be the SYSCL.

The SYSCL Championship is the only route via the pyramid system into the ECB Yorkshire South Premier League.
