Incomplete scorecards (18/8/17)

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. 30th July: Hadleigh v Shotley Peninsula - Ladies T20 Section B - three Shotley players missing 5th August: Bardwell v Frinton - Ladies T20 Section B - three Frinton players missing 6th August: Shotley Peninsula v Melton St. Audrys - Ladies T20 Section B - No scorecard details. 12th August: St. Margarets v Coggeshall II - Div Four - T.Austin still to be registered by Coggeshall 12th August: Halstead III v Melton St. Audrys - Div Seven - one Halstead player missing 12th August: Bardwell v Bury St. Edmunds IV - Div Nine West - one Bury St. Edmunds player missing

Vets at Mistley

M H Two Counties O 50s v Mistley Seniors at Mistley C C on 16/8/2017 (timed game ) Two Counties 240 for 8 dec M Southwell 71no, J Stuck 29, M Paget 28no. S Everett 2-42,  J Orriss 2-26, A Uren 2-32 Mistley 240 for 9, R Mills 100no, C O’Connell 50,  C Hills 3-56, A Parsons 3-54 Match Drawn At Mistley in their cricket week the M H Two Counties just managed to snatch a draw when Mistley looked to have the game won. Batting first the Two Counties struggled against some very good early bowling and fielding  M Johnson 1-39 and  J Orriss 2-26 putting the brakes on Two Counties efforts. The Two Counties lost wickets at regular intervals, both John Stuck 29 and John Gallant 27 got started but couldn’t go on. It was left to a stand of 79 between Martin Southwell, 71no, and, Mark Paget, 28 no, against some ‘interesting’ bowling that allowed The Two Counties to declare on 240 for 8. Mistley set about their task with gusto and from the offset made their intentions clear with Colin O’Oconnell  shining with a well struck half century and aided by Trevor Mills the Home side looked on course to get the required runs.  Richard Mills shone with an aggressive 100 with excellent shots all round the wicket. Chris Hills 3-56 and Alex Parsons 3-54 tried hard to stem the flow but Richard looked to have  shepherded the Mistley side to a good win. With 9 runs required in the last over Mistley lost Simon Everett in that over and with one ball remaining they needed 2 off the final delivery but only managed to get a single to leave them [...]

Post-deadline Registration conditions

There has been some confusion about the part of Rule 13a which deals with the registration of players after August 1st. To clarify, for all registration after that date permission must be obtained from the MSC via Alan Rogers in the first instance and the following guidelines should help to clarify whether or not this is likely to be granted. • Unless there are exceptional circumstances, applications for registrations will only be granted in Divisions 7, 8 and 9. We simply will not allow promotion and relegation issues to be skewed in the higher divisions at the end of the season. If an application is granted in the lower divisions then the player’s record will be looked at closely once he starts to play. • The player’s previous record for the season will be taken into account before a decision is made so it would be advantageous to include stats and clubs played for at the time of the request. • It is requested that clubs in Divisions 7, 8 and 9 keep registration requests to a minimum. • An application, once agreed, is for the team for which it was requested. • Permission will be granted to players under the age of 16. If such a player has played for another club in the TC Championship, then the youth transfer form must be completed. • Permission will be granted to all lady cricketers providing that the club they are leaving agrees. Transfers both within the TC Championship and from other Premier Leagues or feeder leagues are pretty well certain to be declined after August 1st unless there are really exceptional circumstances. To be honest it’s probably not even worth asking. Rick Jones

New record opening partnership

Alex Price and Joe Fowler after breaking the Division One first wicket partnership record against Mistley.  The previous record of 281, had been set by Halstead against Braintree in 1995. Also yesterday, in Division Five, Great Bromley's Ed Fairley took new division best bowling figures of 9-15 against Kelvedon & Feering II, removing Maldon's Tim Bache from the record book, after he took 8-24 in 2013.

Appeal Tribunal result

APPEAL TRIBUNAL Before: Mr David Lamming (barrister), Chairman Mr Philip George (solicitor) Mr Toby Pound (solicitor) The Appeal Tribunal met on 4th August to considered Frinton on Sea CC’s appeal against the MSC decision taken at the Committee Meeting on 3rd July (under Rule 13a) to deduct 36 points from Frinton on Sea CC for playing an ineligible player in the Division 1 match against Maldon CC on 1st July and to award 20 points and the match to Maldon CC. Their findings are attached and can be accessed by clicking this link. However the main issue is covered in para 72 which we show below. 72. We have already noted that we have been given no information as to the nature of Mr Reed’s current employment (outside cricket) in Frinton-on-Sea (or elsewhere in Essex). We note, too, that although Mr Reed states (witness statement para 16, A69) that he does not, and has not, earned a living from cricket and plays as an amateur in Perth, he gives no information as to his employment or means of living in Australia. We consider that we cannot ignore Mr Reed’s own statement on the cricket mentoring website in which he not only describes himself as “an aspiring young cricketer” but also “a top order player.” We note, too that the webpage (R53) is headed “World’s leading online cricket coaching service.” It seems to us inconceivable that Mr Reed would not expect to be paid for the services he is effectively advertising. Accordingly, we conclude, on the balance of probabilities, that despite his assertion to the contrary, Mr Reed is not engaging in cricket solely for personal enjoyment and that he is, whether directly or indirectly, seeking [...]
