DISCIPLINE REPORTS - AGREED ACTIONS

Date: 29th May 2019

Several disciplinary reports have been received and dealt with by the respective clubs.

20 April - New Brighton v Bootle - 1st XI Prem - Vishal Tripathi - dissent and abusive language - 2 week ban 1 of which suspended plus an extra week suspended 

20 April - Birkenhead Park v Spring View - 2nd XI Div 1 - Dan Jordan - dissent and abusive language as captain - 2 week ban 1 of which suspended plus an extra week suspended  

18 May - Lytham v Rainford - 1st XI Tyler Cup - Ben Saunders - dissent and equipment abuse as captain - 3 week ban 1 of which suspended plus an extra week suspended 

25 May - Spring View v Maghull - 1st XI Div 2 - Cameron Lawrenson - dissent and abusive language to umpire and opponent - 3 week ban 1 of which suspended plus an extra week suspended 

 

CONCLUSION : these incidents recorded above almost all involve dissent and abuse towards umpires, including two committed by team captains.  The Management Committee is determined to put an end to this disrespectful behaviour. 

In future, following the report of a disciplinary offence, bans of at least the minimum period given in the tariffs (Handbook pages 94-95) will be applied. 

When a captain is the reported player at least one additional week will be applied. 

Suspended bans, as a deterrent to a player offending again, will be in addition to any immediate bans and may extend beyond the normal 12 months period.
