League restructuring hits the buffers
The proposals announced last month for a restructuring of the Senior Leagues in the 2021 season have met with opposition from clubs in a recently conducted consultation exercise.
The Union says that while, 'There was overwhelming support for change, some suggestions for variations to the proposals were also received principally relating to the number of teams in each league.'
The proposal put to clubs was for 12 teams in both the Premiership and Section 1 with the remaining 8 teams comprising Section 2.
In its update to clubs the Union also states: "It was also clear that many clubs did not wish for the proposals to take effect until season 2022 and the Board has agreed with this."
"The Board has now asked the Domestic Cricket Directorate to review the proposals in light of the responses working towards proposals for change to be tabled at this years’ AGM, for implementation in the 2022 season."
