CCL Issues Social Networking Caution
Cornwall Cricket League has issued some advice whilst on-line.
The following is a direct quote from the Corwall Cricket League's April Newsletter. It is important, and has the full support of CCC. Please read and bear in mind whilst using Social Networking sites! Thanks, Ken Taylor, Secretary.
"The LMC’s stance to any derogatory comments on these sites or in the media by players, club officials or any other person participating in cricket under the aegis of the CCL is as follows:
"Cricket is a game that owes much of its unique appeal to the fact that it should be played not only within the Laws but also within the Spirit of the Game and the ECB Code of Conduct. Any action which is seen to abuse the Spirit or the Code causes injury to the game itself, its reputation and to its future. Such actions and their potential damage are not just confined to the field of play but include verbal and written abuse (wherever found) of or by clubs, associations, governing bodies, players, officials, club members and supporters involved in Cornish league cricket and its associated competitions. Such verbal and written abuse, including that made on social networks, will be referred to the LMC Disciplinary Committee for determination against the standards laid down in the Code of Conduct and the Spirit of Cricket".
