Bosham CC Selection Policy 2023
Approved at player meeting January 2023
League Cricket Selection 2023
All league/cup teams will be selected by the “selection committee”.
For 2023 the selection committee will be Tom Glennie (1st XI Skipper), Ant Ender ( 1st XI Vice), Mike Abrey (2nd XI Skipper), James Ellis (2nd XI Vice).
For fridley T20s Keith "Beefy" McGregor will oversee team selection.
It is the responsibility of all players to inform a league captain of their availability via Teamo, or another method agreed with the selection committee by no later than 6pm on the Sunday before the league game in question. Failure to do so will likely result in non-selection.
The selection committee will not be held responsible for not selecting players who has not made themselves available by the required process above.
The club will not de-select a player (member or non-member) to accommodate a player who did not make themselves available in the correct manor but later makes themselves available.
You are required to tell a captain (or on Teamo) about all injuries or restrictions to your playing time when stating your availability.
The committee will announce teams by Monday evening for the upcoming Saturday, so if a player is not selected they have as much notice as possible.
If your availability changes please message the captain of the team you have been selected in.
All paid-up members will be selected before non-members. Unless paid up members do not make themselves a aisle by the state deadlines.
Player’s adherence to the Club Code of Conduct.
Commitment to the club across all aspects of club life. Helping at the ground, juniors, fundraising, one off projects, and other aspects of helping maintain and grow the club for the community.
Consideration of player’s fitness, ability and form.
To, wherever possible, give fair chance to play for those who wish to and are committed to play regularly.
To be consistent in rationale for selection and non-selection. The balance of the side on any given week.
If a player is not selected, having made themselves available, an explanation will be given to that player. Players not selected for league or cup cricket will have priority to play in upcoming friendlies.
If a player plays one week in the 1st XI but the following week is selected in the 2nd XI the 1st XI skipper or vice will inform the player personally of this and the reasons for the selection. If there is a gap between weeks played and a player on their return is selected in a different team it is up to the returning player to ask for personal feedback if required.
T20 & Friendly Cricket:
Paid-up members will take preference over non paid-up players in all forms of cricket.
Although the vast majority of players who want a Saturday game get to play, on some rare occasions it is tough not getting picked when you want to play or in the team you want to play in most. However, if you have a dispute over a selection issue that you feel was not explained or was unfair, please contact a member of the selection committee, they will discuss the matter with you and with the rest of the selection committee if appropriate. If you feel that does not resolve your issue please contact the club chair who will hear your issue and then investigate on your behalf. Further investigation and discussions may not be resolved the week of that specific selection but you will be heard in full and responded to as a valued member of the club.
