Update - Safe Hands, Umpire Marks, Covid Update

16 Jul 2021

A quick update ahead of what finally looks like a sunny weekend.

Safe Hands

A reminder to all clubs that you need to be Safe Hands compliant by July 31st. If you have any issues make sure to talk to the Help Desk on the Safe Hands portal or to any of the ECiC representatives.

Umpire Marks for Halfway 

We have published club marks from umpires for pitches, grounds and discipline.


Covid Update 

Everyone will be aware of an increase in cases being reported across the country. We have certainly had more reports of members of our clubs who are having to isolate. 

Please can all clubs keep up their great work in battling the pandemic by continuing to follow current ECB guidance.

The ECB will be producing updated guidance on Monday - we will have a look at what this is and discuss it at our Executive Committee meeting on Wednesday.

T20 Finals Day

Good luck to the clubs playing in T20 finals day this Sunday at Billericay CC. I unfortunately cannot attend due to work commitments - but I hope the day goes well and there are some well-contested matches.

As ever if there are any issues please let me know.
