  • Results from Durham and Cleveland Men's inter-county matches On Nov 7&8 at Nunthorpe Squash club.

23/11/15

 
  • Ghost Players. Once teams have played 4 matches they become subject to the 'ghost player' rule  (4f).

    Any player that is nominated for a team that has played 4 matches but has not played will be temporarily removed from the player list until they do play. The main effect of this is that players ranked below the ghosted player will move up and could become ineligible for lower teams. e.g if any second team player is ghosted out, third team player number 11 would move up to 10 and so would not be allowed to play for the third team until the ghost returns and plays a match.

    Note that this takes effect from the following week, so teams already selected for the current week would not be penalised. This is because there is a week allowed to submit the scorecards, so you would not necessarily know who had played this week and who was ghosted out     

    There is no need to notify League secretary if a ghosted player is making a return, they remain eligible throughout. 9000 will be added to the ghost player's ranking so that they still appear on the website, but if they return and play it must be in the same order as they were previously nominated.
