Stage One: Setting up individual access and club sites. Setting up administrator rights. Setting up League teams

Stage 1.1

Those in your club who are going to enter results etc. need to sign up with Play-Cricket.

How?

N.B. The sign-in name and password relate to any and all Play-Cricket web pages, not to a specific club or league. See below on how to link your name with a club.

Stage 1.2

Your club must have a Play-Cricket website.

How?

The basic web site, sufficient for you to meet County League requirements for entering player names and results is set up by play-cricket. See other help guides on this web site and elsewhere on how to customise your web site.

Your club web site will have a name (set by Play-Cricket) something like: http://clubname.play-cricket.com/ You and others can go to that directly, or by using the search boxes from the main play-Cricket website. Suggest you bookmark or make your club web site one of your “favourites”.

Stage 1.3

Those in your club who are going to enter results etc. need to be on-line members of the club site and have admin rights on it.

How?

Once you are accepted as a member, and an administrator, when you sign in on your club's website and click on your name, you will see the options are to Log Out, to Edit Account and to go to Administration.

Stage 1.4

Each of your County league teams must exist on your club web site.

How?

The County League administrator needs to know which team is which, so usually, if you have more than one, if you can, call them 1st XI and 2nd XI to make it obvious. When you can’t use those names, please can you tell the County League web site administrator (see below) which names are the teams in the County League.

Stage Two: At the start of the season – getting linked to the league.

The County League will create the fixtures and they will appear automatically on your web site. As long as your teams exist, these will be linked to the League by the Leage Administrator. If a team doesn't exist, the League Administrator will get in touch with your club to get it set up.

You might see fixtures duplicated. This can happen if another club enters its own fixtures and connects them with you. Once the system is adopted by all this shouldn’t happen, but in the first year or so could be a problem. If you see duplicates, try to work out which one is the ‘official’ fixture received from the GCCL site, and delete unofficial ones – if you see fixtures when signed in as admin you see a red “X” for deletions. You should not be able to delete official League fixtures.

Seeing Fixtures and Results

At any time, you, or anyone, can see your fixtures and results, whether signed in or not, whether admin or not. You are offered search facilities to look for a particular date range or team. Click on the "Matches" or "Fixtures" or "Results" tabs at the top of your club's Play-Cricket web page.

Play-Cricket only shows dates in the future as fixtures. Past fixtures are only displayed under “Results” (whether the result has been filled in or not).

You can only alter fixtures and enter or alter results if you signed in with administrator rights.
