If clubs haven’t done already please make sure that scorecards have been fully updated and confirmed on play cricket. (cross pressed to become a tick).




The forecast for much of Essex seems to involve the dreaded ‘R’ word tomorrow.

Please can all clubs remind themselves and their members of the guidance on wet weather. 

Players should bring their own clothing and equipment to battle the elements.

League matches cannot be rearranged due to weather.

All captains should make sure they are aware of the rain regulations -

Also a quick reminder that all changing rooms should be closed - that includes allowing individuals to enter and get changed on their own.

Useful Tips For Hygiene Breaks

The ECB have created some useful advice for captains and umpires - please see attached.



Thanks to those clubs that have already organised fixtures for round 1 - indeed we have already had our first result.

Please can the remaining clubs organise dates asap.

Please can home clubs arrange umpires - attached are a list of panel umpires who may be available to officiate.

I hope that the weather misses us tomorrow and we get another good week of cricket.
