Clubs in the JCT600 Bradford League can now sign players from outside the league after the start of the season.
A proposal to change rule 23 was proposed by Undercliffe and read: “Players contracted to play cricket outside the Bradford Cricket League with a country, county or minor county may be allowed to play in the league as long as they play before July 31”.
The proposal was passed 19-15 at the league’s annual meeting last night at Pudsey Congs.
Previously the rule stated that such players must be registered before the start of the season but next season they can be registered up to midnight on Thursday, July 25.
This was one of three rule changes approved at the annual meeting.
The number of points awarded for an abandoned match has been reduced from five to three for the 2013 season. This was approved 24-10.
The final rule change means there will now only be one class of life membership.
All recipients of the Sir Leonard Hutton Trophy will become life members, along with any individual the board feels have given outstanding service to the league.
This was passed 34-0, and anyone so honoured will be eligible to attend board meetings but cannot vote.
