Why the county player rules?  The SNCL is designed to cater for smaller community based clubs and, where appropriate, larger clubs that have too many members for their needs of regular league cricket to be adequately accommodated. The spirit of this competition is to provide league cricket for youth players who might otherwise be denied this opportunity. For these reasons, the use of county players in this competition is carefully regulated to promote equality and fairness. The current ruling allows teams to include one (boy) county player per fixture.

When can a county player take part in an SNCL fixture? A single (boy) county player may take part in any SNCL fixture.

What is the definition of a county player? A county player is defined as a child who is included in ANY youth county squad in a respective season.  In years where an U17 squad is not named at the beginning of the year, restrictions will apply to those who have competed at county level (at any age) the previous summer. See 2017 Norfolk County Squads here.

Must this always be the same county player? No, you may rotate as many as you like as long as only one is included in each fixture.

Back to top

Can girl county players take part in SNCL fixtures? Yes – currently no restrictions apply. Clubs may include as many girl county players as they wish in their teams (both SNCL & zipleague).

Back to top

Can a county player be included above their age group e.g. an U13 boy playing in an U15 team? Yes they can but their inclusion will count as the single allowable county player.


Back to top

What happens if we or our opponents field more than one county player? There is no reason to do so but if this happens then the fixture will not conform to league regulations. The game may go ahead on the basis the result is declared void with no points awarded to either team. See no result games.

What are the rules for zipleague? All teams may include a maximum of one boy county player and an unlimited number of girls.
