Five new teams were voted in at the Greenwood Hire Derwent Valley Junior Cricket League AGM at Sherburn Cricket Club.
Snainton’s application to join division B of the under-15s league was accepted, as was Ebberston and Kirkbymoorside’s in the under-13s league and Mulgrave and Nawton Grange’s in the under-11s competition.
The meeting had a full attendance of 19 member clubs, which was brought up to 20 by the addition of new club Mulgrave.
A proposal for a change of rule to be allowed to play eight-a-side matches in the under-15s league was carried by six for and four against.
The rationale behind this change was to hopefully make it easier for the smaller village clubs to be able to put out a side.
League sponsor (Greenwood Hire) announced they had agreed to continue with sponsorship for the 2015 season.
Twenty-eight junior players received their individual League Merit Awards which were presented by League President Derek Hall.
