Helmet Directive

The ECB have issued a directive concerning the wearing of helmets by persons under the age of 18yrs.

The directive states that:- All young players who have not reached their 18th birthday must wear a helmet with a faceguard when batting and either a helmet or BS face protector when standing up to the stumps when keeping wicket. A young player acting as a runner must also wear a helmet even if the player they are running for is not doing so. The directive applies to both Junior and Senior cricket, also in practice and in matches when playing with a hard ball.

It is the policy of Huddersfield Central Cricket League that all Clubs in the League will fully comply with the above ECB directive.

Whilst there appears scope for parents to sign a consent form for their youngster not to wear a helmet, legal advice is that this will probably not hold up in Court, and therefore, Clubs should not adopt this procedure. The directive is applicable from now and it is the responsibility of all Clubs.
