Witham penalised

An official warning was issued on 27th June to the effect that in the event of the panel umpires reporting Witham CC for not having a non playing scorer, then a 5 point penalty would be imposed.

Such a report was received by the umpires who officiated their match against Woolpit last weekend. Therefore, in addition to usual financial penalty, an administrative penalty of 5 points has been deducted.

Update incomplete scorecard list (14/7/17)

The following is a list of all the matches where the scorecard has not been fully completed in Play-Cricket. Players missing from the scorecards/squads who have not been registered by their club, should have been completed by the Monday evening following the match. I am sure that Alan Rogers will have his eyes on this, and the offending clubs are now facing penalties if not attended to almost immediately, with one club already having been deducted points. Missing players could be deemed as “ineligible players” and the penalties that go with that could be applied. So I would highly recommend that the clubs listed as having missing information attend to it with due haste.

11th June: Shotley Peninsula v Battisford – Ladies T20 Section B – no Shotley players entered, 2 Battisford missing
25th June: Melton St. Audrys v Battisford – Ladies T20 Section B – one Battisford player missing
27th June: Shotley Peninsula v Felixstowe & C. II  – Ladies T20 Section B – no players named added
1st July: Yoxford II v Stradbroke V. – Div 9 East – one Yoxford player missing
1st July: Kelvedon & F. III v West Mersea II – Div 9 South – one Kelvedon player missing
8th July: West Mersea v Stowupland – Div 6 – one Stowupland player missing
9th July: Felixstowe & C. II v Ipswich & E.S. – Ladies T20 Section B – two Ipswich & ES players missing
9th July: Maldon v Hadleigh – Ladies T20 Section B – one Hadleigh player missing

To be honest, this is very very poor on the part of some of these clubs.

Victory at Kesgrave

M H Two Counties O 50s  v Audi Suffolk Alliance at Kesgrave C C on 12/7/2017 ( 45 over game)

Two Counties  190 for 6. P Tomkins 67, M Southwell 38no. G Wellen  3-49

Suffolk Alliance 136 for 7  L Cruse 50, A Gallant 48. M Southwell 2-17

M H Two Counties won by 54 runs.

The M H Two Counties O 50s played an enthralling match at Kesgrave C C  against their counterparts from the Audi Suffolk Alliance. Throughout the whole game the batsmen had to battle hard for runs against bowling from both sides that was a very high standard.  Batting first the Two Counties struggled for runs and lost Gerard Artindale, Stephen Henderson and Edgar Dunkley with the score on 34, all perished trying to up the run rate against the very consistent bowling of A Barnes only conceding 16 runs in his 9 over spell while G Wellens 3-49 was the main wicket taker with figures of 3-49. Two Counties were indebted  to Phil Tomkins from Kelvedon who battled on with fight and desire to notch a brilliant 67, he was aided and abetted later in the innings with a determined undefeated 38no from Martin Southwell and skipper Pat Patel 21 who showed the talent to get the Two Counties to a respectable 190 for 6 in a real battling 45 overs. A Thompson 1-26, R Harris 1-40 and M Whitmore 1-49 all bowled very well and the Two Counties final total always looked vunerable.

The Suffolk Alliance side set about their task with endeavour but some superb bowling and astute captaincy from Pat Patel kept things well in check, Chris Hills 1-23, Tony Oram  and Mark Comber only conceded 20 odd runs in their 9 over spells while Martin Southwell also put the brakes with 2-17. Lance Cruse 50 and Andrew Gallant 48 fought hard to get on top of things but it was the Two Counties day only conceding 2 boundaries in the whole 45 overs a quite remarkable feat. Dougie Andrews 20 had a late flurry but it was all to no avail as after their 45 overs the Alliance team could only muster 136 for 7 giving the Two Counties a remarkable win on the day by 54 runs. The Suffolk Alliance side were excellent hosts and the evening was completed in great spirits with the after match celebrations as enjoyable as the hard fought match.
Kindest regards

Registration deadline day

While it will be impossible for us to generate the “excitement” of Sky Sports’ Transfer Deadline Day, with reporters camped around net facilities on grounds, we must remind all member clubs of the League, that the Registration window will slam shut at 23:59:59 on Tuesday August 1st, After this time no new registrations for this season will be accepted, unless permission has been granted by the League.
Now this does have repercussions on those clubs who are tardy in completing scoresheets and player registrations, as any players who have played before that time, and whom have not been registered, will be treated, under League rules, as “ineligible players”, with the penalties applicable to that infringement being rigorously applied.
