If you aren't already, you need to be a registered play-cricket user. In order to do this, go to the main play-cricket site http://www.play-cricket.com/ and click on the Sign Up link at top right of the page. Fill in the necessary details, and validate your account. There is no need to set up another login in order to claim a site
Then login to the main play-cricket page http://www.play-cricket.com/ via the Login link, using your user name and password, and in the Cricket Directory section in the middle of the page, click the 'apply for your site' button.
Select a category of Clubs, the relevant county in the County field, type the first few letters of the club name in the Keywords field, change the Status dropdown to All and click the Search button. This should produce a list of possible matches, of which your unclaimed site may be one. Take a look at the Status column
- If the name isn't in the list then try making the search less specific; if you still can't find it then please contact us and we can add your club to the list
- If it shows as Active then someone else has already claimed the site on behalf of the club. If you don't know who then please contact us
- Inactive means that it has been previously claimed and then made inactive by the club. We can reactivate
- If it says Unclaimed then click the Select icon by the correct entry and proceed as below...
Please fill in all, or as many, fields as you can; in particular enter both addresses required, 'office' and personal, your position within the club, and set up all the teams that your club is currently running, or may have run, as this will enable us to link up any games involving your teams that other people may already have entered. Once you have done this, we will then be able to activate your site for you.
The instructions above also apply to leagues; simply substitute Competition for Club where relevant. If it is a cross-county league then it is better to leave the County field as All when searching, to cover all possibilities. The instructions about setting up teams do not apply when claiming a league site.
