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.

Three concessions, thus far, from tomorrow’s fixture list. In Division Nine East, Yoxford II have now conceded to Woodbridge II, joining the Division Nine South match between Kelvedon & Feering III and Witham III which was conceded over a week ago by Kelvedon. Now, surprisingly and possibly uniquely, in Division Two, Copdock & O.I. II’s have conceded their home match, which was going to be played away from home, to Braintree. It will mean that they have conceded both of their League matches against Braintree this season.

Incomplete scorecards, and unregistered players

As the season reaches its conclusion, we still have seven scorecards that need completing. Some because players need to be added, some because players need to be registered, and in these instances the guilty club could face points deductions if we reach the end of the season and this matter has not been attended to. Finally, in one case, we are missing the entire scorecard.
The full list is as follows, in the hope that those clubs members can appeal to their admins to complete to avoid their clubs being punished. One club seems to feature quite heavily.

28th July: Division Eight: Coggeshall III v Dunmow II. Coggeshall need to register “Johnny Allen”.
18th August: Division Eight: Coggeshall III v Copford II. Coggeshall need to register *James Dallinger”.
18th August: Division Four: Woodbridge v Elmstead II. Elmstead II need to complete their team, one player is “Unsure”.
26th August: Ladies T20B: Woolpit II v Bardwell. Bardwell need to register “Lily Indra”.
1st September: Division Four: Coggeshall II v Elmstead II, the entire scorecard has yet to be entered.
1st September: Division Four: Tuddenham v Abberton. Tuddenham need to register “Paul Gibbins”.
2nd September: Ladies Challenge: Thriplow v Easton. Four Easton players are “Unsure”.

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.

Two clubs penalised for ineligible players

Two Division Two clubs, Ipswich & East Suffolk, and Copdock & O.I. II, have both lost the points they gained, plus an additional 16 points each. after fielding ineligible players against Haverhill and Lakenheath respectively. Lakenheath did gain 20 points from the match against Copdock & O.I. II, but Haverhill only originally picked up 18 for their victory over Ipswich & East Suffolk, so, in accordance with the rules, they have now gained the full 20 points from the match.

The offending clubs were both given warnings that they were likely to be infringing the regulations, but failed to make any efforts to recifty the situation.

There is every possibilty of further penalties being applied, as the administration of more than a couple of clubs is sadly below the required standard at the moment.
