Provision of refreshments to visiting teams
in Yorkshire League matches
In response to queries from member clubs, the YCBA has decided that EBU advice on the provision of refreshments should apply to matches played in the Yorkshire League. In return for not having to travel, the home team is expected to provide refreshments to both teams.
When the away team is aware that one of more of its players has a special dietary requirement, it is recommended that their match secretary or captain should contact the home team’s representative, not less than ten days before the date of the match, to discuss whether it will or will not be possible to provide for that requirement.
There is no obligation on the part of home teams to make such provision, or expectation that they should, and players with such dietary requirements may of course bring their own food with them.
Home teams may consider it reasonable to include in the refreshments item(s) that are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
