In the event of the league ceasing to exist, and following the discharge of all debts and liabilities, all assets at the time of dissolution shall become the property of the affiliated member clubs. No individual member(s) may obtain any asset from the league.
The League shall be members of Cricket Wales and the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and affiliated to any other bodies which may be advantageous to the League.
This section refers to League fixtures and any competition, arrangement or function organised and controlled by the League, or to cases where the South Wales Junior Cricket League has been requested by both parties to intervene or adjudicate. The League strongly recommends that all member Clubs, adopt the appropriate parts of the following Disciplinary process, which will enable it to accede to requests to intervene and adjudicate, as well as to gain co-operative action of all member Clubs to the rightful Disciplinary Process of one of them.
(a) It shall be a disciplinary offence:
(i) For any player in connection with, or in the course of, League fixtures and any competition, arrangement or function organised and controlled by the League to misconduct himself, or to act at any time in a manner calculated to prejudice the good name or interests of the League.
(ii) For any Club to fail properly to control or discipline its players, or to act in a manner calculated to prejudice the good name or interests of the South Wales Junior Cricket League.
(iii) Providing that the disciplinary procedure including right of appeal can be shown to have followed the model identified in clauses 18-20 of the WCA Constitution, then the WCA will take disciplinary action against any League or club that plays a cricketer during the period of a ban by an affiliated league or club under the clause 20(a)(ii).
The Players and/or Club committing an offence shall be liable to penalties in the manner and as described hereafter.
(b) For the purposes of these Rules the expression ‘the player’ shall throughout these Rules be deemed to mean and include not only any player, but also any member or official of any Club or if appropriate any other person involved in any incident of possible misconduct occurring on the field of play, or on the premises of the Club as may be appropriate in the particular circumstances.
(c) Any complaint or report will be investigated only if made in writing to the Secretary of the League within 7 days of the alleged event.
(d) Before any penalty is imposed there shall be a disciplinary hearing before the Disciplinary Sub-Committee of the League. At least 7 days’ notice in writing of the hearing and of the alleged offence shall be given to the player, or in the case of a Club, its Secretary, in writing. The player or Club shall be entitled to attend the hearing, to be legally or otherwise represented and to call witnesses — as shall the South Wales Junior Cricket League.
(e) If at the hearing the Disciplinary Sub-Committee find the alleged offence proved it shall have the power to impose one or more of the following penalties:
(1) in the case of a player:
(i) suspension for one or more matches or sine die
(ii) a fine of not more than £25
(2) in the case of a Body:
(i) expulsion from the League
(ii) expulsion from any competition of the League
(iii) deduction of points
(iv) a fine not exceeding £100
(f) A player or Club found by the Disciplinary Sub-Committee to have committed an offence or upon whom the Disciplinary Sub-Committee has imposed a penalty shall have the right of Appeal to the Appeals Committee. Notice of Appeal setting out the ground must be given in writing to the Secretary of the SWJCL within 7 days of the notification of the decision of the Disciplinary Sub-Committee together with a deposit of £10. Upon receipt of the Notice of Appeal the penalty shall not take effect pending the hearing of the Appeal.
(g) The Appeal shall be by the way of a rehearing. The player or Club and the League shall have the same rights of attendance and representation, and to call witnesses as they had before the Disciplinary Sub-Committee. If leave is sought to present any fresh evidence to the Appeals Committee, particulars of such evidence and of the reason why it was not presented to the Disciplinary Committee must be forwarded to the Secretary of the League.
(h) The Appeals Committee may confirm, vary or reverse the decision of the Disciplinary Sub-Committee. The Appeals Committee shall also have the power at its discretion not to return the deposit where it considers the appeal to be without merit.
(i) The decision of the Appeals Committee, or, if no appeal, of the Disciplinary Committee shall be final and binding.
