3 Mar 17 Match Day Misconduct Offence (MMO). Umpires who decide that they are going to Issue an MMO must ensure that on the day, they inform the player concerned, that he is going to be reported. If there is difficulty in carrying out this action, require the team captain of the player involved, to bring the player to you, so that he can be informed. Should you still be unable to inform the player make sure that the team Captain and the Club concerned are informed and that they confirm that the player has been informed. Alternatively inform the player by text or email. Record details of your actions on the MMO. Failure to inform the player that he will be reported will result in no action being taken against the player (Current EH disciplinary procedures). If in doubt contact a member of the CHUA committee.
