The Devon Cricket League needs to change parts of its Constitution, Playing Rules and Playing Regulations to align with the new All Through League structure which will apply from the 2018 season. It is also the opinion of a number of Club Captains that some modernisation is required.
At meetings with the Chairmen of member clubs, the new draft proposals were discussed. Since then, Captains and senior players have considered these drafts and feedback was supplied to Ray Allen (Acting Playing Rules Officer), who amended the documents prior to further discussion at the Divisional meetings. They will now go forward to the AGM. In order to view the draft Constitution please click here, for the draft Playing Regulations here and for the draft Playing Rules here.
Once the three documents have been adopted by the AGM, a short list of Amendments will be voted on. To view these, please click here.
The Devon Cricket League Annual General Meeting will be held at the Exeter Court Hotel on Friday, 24 November 2017 starting at 7pm. To view the Agenda for the meeting, please click here.

The aim of the Tolchards (www.tolchards.com) Devon Cricket League is to provide competitive cricket in a league format that meets the aspirations of all the players across the county. Currently the membership comprises 67 clubs represented by 150 teams and is arranged in separate 1st and 2nd XI league structures. From the 2018 season the structure of the Tolchards Devon Cricket League will change to an "all through" league with the C Division & below being regionalised into East & West Divisions.
The Devon Cricket League also runs county-wide Cup competitions. These are now organised into the T/20 format
