Shepherd Neame Essex League News story

SNEL Update

29 May 2020

Many of you will have seen the news from the ECB yesterday that the domestic professional game is now postponed until August 1st and the recreational game continues to be suspended until further notice.

Full ECB statement can be found here -

We understand that for many of our members clubs and in turn your members this update will be a big disappointment - we also understand that for many there will be frustrations - especially with the news that other sports are now starting to return to normal.


We continue to hope for more guidance and information from the ECB and will pass on anything that we are updated on.


In the meantime...


  Club Survey


As sent out last Friday - this is now more pressing - we have had half of clubs reply to this survey - please can any club that hasn't done already please fill in the survey by the end of this weekend (May 31st).


The league would like to take the opportunity to find out about how member clubs are currently doing and also the members’ thoughts on the future of the season. We have put together a survey that the league exec committee would like all members to fill out.


You can find all the questions on the survey in the attached document – please talk to your committees about the answers you need to give. Then fill out the survey here


We will not share any private information collected from the survey.


Please only one response per club and please don’t email in answers  - use this link
