FCCL have a rule that no club can have 2 sides in the same division and it must be the higher XI in the higher division etc...

It has brought about some interesting scenarios when you have clubs with their different XI's only division apart and 1 should get promoted and/or 1 should get relegated - so therefore the committee have to decide what to do about promotion and relegation to make up the right numbers.

But it is the only way to do it otherwise you can get into all sorts of possible situations where clubs possibly fix things.

@pablomarmite - Can i ask does the league play the fixture between the 2 XI's at the start of the season to reduce the risk of fixing the game?

No mate the fixtures are played as arranged, so they took place mid and late in season. In the those leagues the clubs arrange the fixtures not the league. Two other leagues also have two teams from the same club in them.

Surely the club should only have there 4th XI promoted? Highest team goes up. The alternative is to fine the club for not playing its strongest 4th XI. That club sounds seriously screwed up!

There is a starring system in place which the league secretary is supposed to police. One guy got a ton for 4s two weeks later he plays for 5s against 4s!

The club have obviously just played the system.

I'm not sure why a club would want 2 sides in the same division. The players have nowhere to move up to. Our club uses the 4th team to introduce colts to senior cricket, we will have no more than 4/5 adults play each week, the hope being that these boys, and girls, move up through the system.

I wonder what the jump is to their 3rd team and 2nd team.

The First XI league is a closed league for 1st XI only of which there are 4 divisions/sections.  Then the leagues for  2s 3s etc is open there are 8 divisions/sections of 8 teams. Some clubs run five and six sides so with an open league structure like this and allowed to play in same division inevitably two will end up in same division. It is my opinion that the open league is fine just no two sides should be allowed in same league.
