Welcome to the South Yorkshire Senior Cricket League. Est. 2001
South Yorkshire Senior Cricket League

Wombwell Will Field One Team in the 2019 Season

Wombwell Main CC are to field one team in the upcoming South Yorkshire Senior Cricket League (SYSCL) season.

Initially Wombwell had entered two teams – a first team in Division Two and a second team in Division Six – but after discussions with the league it was agreed that the club would only be represented in Division Six.

David Ward, SYSCL chief executive officer, said: “Wombwell lost a number of players during the close season and made a request on 27th March 2019 to the SYSCL to withdraw their 1st XI from Division 2 and compete with one team in Division 6 for the 2019 season. 

“Whilst we had great sympathy for Wombwell’s request, initially we rejected it on the basis that the League wanted to maintain 12 teams in Division 2, but also we didn’t wish to create a precedent where future clubs could withdraw if they felt their squad could not compete at that level.

“Subsequent discussions with Wombwell over the number of last season’s 1st XI players that remained with the club made it clear that this action would not only put them as a club in a situation where they were uncompetitive, but the level of competitiveness would threaten the long term existence of the club.  At this stage it was still our intention for the credibility of the League to retain 12 teams in Division 2.

“Following this process, the SYSCL LMC met on 11th April 2019 and decided Wombwell will be allowed to withdraw their 1st XI from Division 2 and compete in Division 6 as Wombwell’s 1st XI for the 2019 season.  This will allow them to remain competitive and rebuild to a situation where they can field a 2nd XI in 2020 season.”

Further to this decision it means that Worsbrough Bridge will be given a Bye to Round 2 of the Mick Savage Trophy and Division 2 will remain at 11 teams, meaning 20 fixtures with two ‘Bye Weeks’ for each team.

As per league rules promotion and relegation will be confirmed by 30th June 2019.
