Missing Umpires reports

Below is the list of umpire reports that I have yet to receive. I suspect that most of these are as a result
of captains who are still using the on-line report when I have asked on a number of occasions to use the
old style pro forma instead. Whilst the on-line form works from the website, it will tell you that the report
has been sent, it is very hit and miss as to whether they reports are actually received in my inbox. I do
not really appreciate all the extra work in trying to chase up these reports and is also causing
consternation to the umpire’s panel. Please can you re-submit these reports using the old style form.
Thanks – Alan

Players that are not registered – a warning

August is approaching, which means that the end of this season is not now that far away. Promotion and relegation issues will start to become the focus of attention for many. Sadly though there may be a handful of clubs whose admin is going to let the club down. I am referring to the sluggishness that a few clubs show in registering players, and/or playing players whose registration then proves to be problematic due to infringing existing and published ECB guidelines. Life could be made easier for a lot of League officials and Club officials if the sections of the League’s Official Handbook were read and understood by Club officials before putting teams out on the field of play.
There is one matter of an under-age player that played in a match recently that will be dealt with in due course by the Management Sub-Committee.
However, what may be of more significance are the following currently outstanding player registrations.
May 19th: J.Druitt (Copdock & O.I. IO) away to Little Bardfield Village.
June 30th: K.Cooper (Elmstead II) home to Eight Ash Green.
July 7th: two unknown players (Coggeshall III) away to Halstead III.
July 7th: one player (Tuddenham) away to Walsham le Willows.
July 7th: Joseph Rinaldi (Haverhill II) away to Abberton & District.

Doubtless this weekend’s matches will add to this list. So if you have players to register, I would suggest that it is done as fast as possible.

Pleased to report that most of the above have now been dealt with, but why does it need such a reminder to get clubs to do it???

Eye & District withdraw from the League

Worlington still in the National Village Cup

Worlington are through to the National Village Cup Quarter Finals for the first time after securing a 35 run victory over 2015 finalists Foxton.
Batting first, Worlington closed their innings on 288-7 with Jimmy Watson (130*) scoring his third century of the tournament to put himself firmly at the top of the competition’s run scorer list for the year. Charlie Tunstall, with 53, provided the support.
Tunstall then collected three wickets to cap off an impressive all-round performance, helping dismiss the Cambridgeshire visitors for 253.
Worlington now host Mayfield CC of the Sussex Cricket League, on Sunday 22nd July, match commences 1pm.

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.

Every season of the Championship

The Two Counties Cricket Championship started life in 1971, and two players that we know of, has played, at least one match, in every single season of the League. Those players are Halstead’s Simon Rippingale, and Rick Jones  for Copdock & Old Ipswichians or for Ipswich, and we would like to know if there are any other players who can match that record.  If so can they please contact Steve Isaac via the Results line number to let him know.
