In order to provide the most effective selection process possible, the Leeming Spartan Cricket Club and its Committee have devised a Selection Policy to ensure that all members are aware of what is required of them, which will enable our Selectors to successfully complete their roles.

Our Chairman of Selectors this season is our President Peter Coombs, who has taken on the role to provide a much required wiser head at the top of the Leeming Spartan selection process. Peter will be aided by Marc Dodds, Nick Manifis, and Peter Waite as selectors this season.

For more information about the Leeming Spartan Cricket Club’s policies, please click here.


It is a condition of your membership at the club that you follow the points listed in the Club Selection Policy. 

The policy is used in order to provide the best possible selection process to our club members.

Selections are uploaded each Thursday night after training (no later than 10:30pm) on the Selections page of our website.

Notice To All Players:

Listed below are the requirements for all players – please help ensure a smooth process by cooperating with these requirements:

  1. If you are playing the current game and not available for the next fixture please advise your captain during or just after the match, who will advise the Chairman of Selectors (TBA)
  2. If you are not playing the current game or subsequently become unavailable please advise the Chairman of Selectors as soon as possible, or as soon as you know of your unavailability via the selection hotline on 0478 982 043

Notifying The Club Of Your Unavailability:

If you know in advance that you are unable to play a match, it is of the utmost importance that you notify the club through one of the following ways:

  1. Visit the Selections Page on the club website and fill in the absentee form (this is the primary way to notify the club of your absence)
  2. Contact the Selectors via the Selection Hotline on 0478 982 043
  3. Inform your captain the match before your unavailability (only applicable if you know in advance)
  4. Check the Selections Page on the club website each Friday to ensure you have not been selected
  5. Contact the Chairman Of Selectors Anthony McGhie
  6. Inform the Club in person at a training session by speaking with a Selector (and no-one else)

YOU MUST COMPLETE ONE OF THE ABOVE TO NOTIFY THE CLUB OF YOUR ABSENCE!

Getting someone to notify the club on your behalf will not suffice and you may miss future matches because of this!


Ensuring You Have Not Been Selected (If You Are Unavailable):

If you have notified the club of your unavailability, it is recommended that you complete one of the following to check there is no error and you have not been selected:

  1. Listen to the Selections Presentation on a Thursday night and ensure your name is not listed
  2. Check the Selections Page on the club website immediately after training
  3. Contact the Selectors via the Selection Hotline on 0478 982 043 (either Anthony McGhie or John Ipsen)
  4. Contact us immediately if there has been any error

ALTHOUGH OPTIONAL, IT IS IN YOUR BEST INTEREST TO ENSURE YOU AREN’T NAMED TO PLAY WHEN YOU ARE UNAVAILABLE AS IT MAY IMPACT FUTURE SELECTION!


Ensuring That You Have Been Selected:

If you are unable to attend training on a Tuesday or Thursday please complete one of the following to confirm your selection:

  1. Check the Selections Page on the Club website each Friday to ensure you have been selected
  2. Contact the Selectors via the Selection Hotline on 0478 982 043 (either Anthony McGhie or John Ipsen)
  3. Phone the Leeming Spartan Cricket Club on 9310 1416 between 8.30pm and 10.00pm on Thursday
  4. Contact the Chairman Of Selectors
  5. Inform only the Selectors in person at a training session by speaking with a Selector

YOU MUST COMPLETE ONE OF THE ABOVE TO ENSURE YOU HAVE BEEN SELECTED – DO NOT ASSUME YOUR POSITION IN ANY GRADE!

It is up to you to confirm your selection in a grade – not the Selectors. It is not feasible to liaise with all 95 registered club members each Thursday night to make sure they are aware of their selection, so the Leeming Spartan Cricket Club kindly asks that you please ensure the grade you have been selected for.


How The Selection Process Takes Place:

Teams will be selected on the Tuesday during training, and announced each Thursday.

It is your responsibility to inform the selectors of your inability to play prior to the selection announcement on Thursday evenings.

Where relevant, players who train will get preference over those non-trainers. Players who perform will go up in the grades!

For more information please see the Selection Committee page on the website or head to the Selections page to view team selections.


Selection Disputes Banner

Member Understanding:

The Leeming Spartan Cricket Club kindly asks that you always behave in a proper manner when speaking to selectors or voicing your concerns.

We understand that with six sides, and therefore 66 players each week, it is impossible to please everyone.

However, it is important to remember that no individual is bigger than the Club, and as such, decisions will be made in the best interest of the Leeming Spartan Cricket Club.

As such, we provide you with an avenue to voice your concerns on our website via our Complaints Page, and you may choose to remain anonymous when using this page.

We take your concerns extremely seriously, however, we reserve the right to decline any suggestions.


Persuasion Warning:

It is important to note that captains and other members (“your mates” at the Club) do not have the power to persuade members to play where they see fit, that is; when it is different from the announced selections.

A member does not have any authorisation to alter selections, particularly after the naming of the selections on the Club website.

Under NO circumstances are you permitted to persuade a player to play somewhere other than where he has been selected.

Failure to comply will result in immediate expulsion from the Leeming Spartan Cricket Club.


The Leeming Spartan Cricket Club (Inc.) thanks you for your understanding.
