The Disciplinary Regulations stipulate that the County Disciplinary Secretary must be notified within 48 hours of any red card offence otherwise a player’s case may be delayed We try to hear every case quickly, but as a player is banned from the date of the red card, that delay may result in the ban lasting longer than may be necessary.
Under the Regulations, we can offer postal hearings for first-time offenders where the offence is deemed to be low entry. This can mean a player returning to playing quite quickly.
