Clubs with teams in the Russell Court Open Competitions Division 2 have sought clarification on the issue of relegation at the end of the 2017 season.
There are a series of issues to be considered and these are part of the Open Competitions D1/D2 Focus Group deliberations. These include maintaining competitiveness in different divisions, whether all Division 2 matches should be played on the same day as Division 1 matches, whether having divisions comprising of 1st teams and those with 2nd teams is the best course, and helping clubs establish strong bases.
Cricket Leinster wish to confirm that there will be no relegation from Division 2 for the 2017 season. The issue of promotion to Division 2 will be dealt with separately in due course.
