Welcome to the Marshall Hatchick Two Counties Cricket Championship

The Marshall Hatchick Two Counties Cricket Championship is an amateur league, and is a feeder league into the East Anglian Premier League. Membership is open to clubs based in Suffolk and Essex.

Annual General Meeting – main points

The Annual General Meeting of the Two Counties Cricket Championship was held on Wednesday, Octobwer 10th at Colchester Rugby Club.
The main points emanating from the meeting were as follows:
The meeting vote in favour of the Management Sub Committee’s acceptability of and registration of Overseas Category 3 players, as was circulated to all clubs prior to the meeting.
Alan Rogers has stood down from his role as League Secretary, but will remain as Assistant Secretary with the brief of managing the Ladies and the Handbook production. Steve Isaac will take over the role of Assistant Secretary in charge of results, as well as remaining in his current position with regard to Play-Cricket and the Web site.
The League, is therefore, still seeking someone to fill the role as League Secretary, but without those previously mentioned roles being added to their work load.
Scott Button (Yoxford) is replacing Ross Stannard as one of the Suffolk clubs’ Representative. Everyone else will remain in their current seats on the Management Sub-Committee.
All five teams that sought continued participation in the League after exceeding the maximum number of concessions were all re-elected to the League.
The application from The Real Oddies CC to join the Sunday division was withdrawn on the morning of the meeting.
The Management Sub-Committee’s proposal to regionalise all the divisions with the exception of Divisions 1 through to 5, was discussed and rejected, with clubs no longer concerned about the distances they will travel. So the League pyramid will remain as it is. Chappel & Wakes Colne II and Worlington III have entered the League, so following the withdrawals of Brightlingsea and Eye & District during the 2018 season, numbers will remain as they were in 2019.
Three clubs, Hadleigh, Melton St. Audrys, and Woodbridge were all absent from the meeting, though Hadleigh did notify the League in advance of their absence.
All subscriptions and appeal deposits remain unchanged.

GET THE BEST SEAT IN THE HOUSE BY BEING AN UMPIRE

The Association of Suffolk Cricket Umpires and Scorers, which has members in Suffolk and Essex, is on the
lookout for new recruits. Full training will be given at an ECB-approved course early in 2019 and successful
candidates can then stand in league, county youth or festival matches for which you receive a fixed expense
rate. If you feel like putting something back into the game, as well as having the best seat in the house, details of the umpiring course can be obtained in the first instance from Terry Snell on 01449 760574 or by e-mailing terence.snell@btinternet.com

If you would like to get involved in scoring, then please contact Andy Broome at andy.broome2@virgin.net

Bury St. Edmunds remain in the EAPL

Bury St. Edmunds defeated Frinton by 10 wickets, which coupled with Norwich’s 123 run defeat against Sudbury, has moved Bury St. Edmunds out of the relegation berth at the foot of the table. Therefore, should Worlington come out on top in the play-offs then it is possible that a number of third placed clubs in the Two Counties Cricket Championship could find themselves promoted. They will certainly be hoping that Worlington do them a massive favour.
Worlington make the relatively short trip to play Saffron Walden tomorrow, starting at 11am, while Norwich entertain Fakenham in the other Semi-Final. You can follow the progess of both matches via the East Anglian Premier League results page, or via Total Cricket Scorer.

Captains’ Umpires report

Please note that the on-line umpire report is not working properly. Although it may accept your entry and say that the report has been sent, I’m sorry but the reports are not reaching my inbox. The problem will hopefully be sorted soon.
In the meantime can you please complete the old style form that I sent to your championship reps yesterday morning. Also, there were a number of reports that were sent over the last two weekends but were not received by me. Again, please can you check the list that I distributed and resubmit using the old style form.
Many thanks.
Alan Rogers
