All Stars Cricket
Jan 31, 2018, 9:08 pm

Our club has signed up to the All Stars program this season and we are really looking forward to seeing young children using our facilities.

We have a number of playing members along with our coaches who want to become activators to help run the 8 week program.

With the help from the Northumberland Cricket Board we will be hosting a free taster session on Tuesday 1st May starting at 6pm till 7pm.

Our 8 week program then starts Tuesday 15th May starting at 6pm till 7pm running up to and including 3rd July.

By registering for All Stars Cricket, the children will be guaranteed eight weeks of jam packed fun, activity and skills development.

The programme is suitable for all children aged 5 to 8, new to cricket and sport as the sessions are designed to teach the basic skills of the game. Every child will earn stars as the weeks progress that match the skills learned during the programme:  

  • Batting – hitting a moving ball
  • Throwing – underarm and overarm
  • Catching – small and large balls
  • Bowling – overarm
  • Running – lots of movement
  • Teamwork – fun games with friends
  • Communication – the basics of cricket
  • Spirit of Cricket – how to respect others

First Net
Jan 30, 2018, 9:01 pm

29th January saw our members rock up to the Bede School in Blyth for our first indoor net to blow away the cob webs. Not a bad turnout for the first one.

Just wonder how many are sore on Tuesday and Wednesday, especially the old guard.

"Professional Sportsperson"

The term "Professional Sportsperson" is defined by the Rules as someone, whether paid or unpaid, who:

"is providing services as a sportsperson, playing or coaching in any capacity, at a professional or semi-professional level of sport; or

"being a person who currently derives, who has in the past derived or seeks in the future to derive, a living from playing or coaching, is providing services as a sports person or coach at any level of sport, unless they are doing so as an "Amateur"."

The Home Office has advised that it would consider that the following are likely to be included in the definition of "Professional Sportsperson":

* players who have played for professional or semi-professional clubs at junior levels, which may include under 19s teams, whether they were paid or not;

* coaches of junior teams of professional or semi-professional clubs, whether they were paid or not;

* former professional sportspeople who have formally reverted to amateur status according to the rules of their sport; and

* players who have played representative sport for their state, country, or territory, whether they were paid or not.

"Amateur Sportsperson"

A person who engages in a sport or creative activity solely for the personal enjoyment and who is not seeking to derive a living from the activity. This also includes a person playing or coaching in a charity game.

"Seeking to derive a living"

A person may be considered to be seeking to derive a living if they are part of a Player Pathway.

"Player Pathway"

Player “Pathway” definition: A player may be considered to be on a “Pathway” and therefore classified as a “Professional Sportsperson”, if that person has played cricket above U17 at state / province / territory level (paid or unpaid) in any country.

"Reasonable expenses"

What is considered reasonable will be based on the cost in the geographical location of where the person is living - Reimbursement of airfare, board & lodgings.

The Home Office definition for "Payment" of "reasonable expenses" for a player travelling on a Standard Visitor Visa (SVV) is stated as follows:

"The applicant must not receive payment from a UK source for any activities undertaken in the UK, except for the following:

(a) reasonable expenses to cover the cost of their travel and subsistence.

(Refer to the Immigration Rules Appendix V: visitor rules under Clause V4.7(a))
