The incomplete scorecard update: It seems to be getting longer

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 could face penalties if not attended to almost immediately. Missing players could be deemed as "ineligible players" and the penalties that go with that could be applied after the next Management Committee meeting on July 3rd. So I would highly recommend that the clubs listed as having missing information attend to it with due haste. 21st May: Copdock & O.I. Ladies II v Melton St. Audrys Ladies - Ladies T20 Section B - Melton players needing adding to the scorecard, now that they have been registered. 10th June: Coggeshall III v Maldon IV - Div 9 South - One Coggeshall and one Maldon player missing 10th June: Witham III v Kelvedon & F. III - Div 9 South - no result and no scorecard entered 11th June: Thriplow v Easton - Ladies Challenge - three Easton players missing 11th June: Frinton v Melton St. Audrys - Ladies T20 Section B - One Frinton unregistered and four Melton missing 11th June: Shotley Peninsula v Battisford - Ladies T20 Section B - no scorecard entered 17th June: Yoxford v Nowton - Div 5 - no scorecard entered. 17th June: Copford II v Copdock & O.I. III - Div 8 - Two Copdock players missing 17th June: Maldon IV v West Bergholt II - Div 9 South - One West Bergholt player missing 17th June: West Mersea II v Coggeshall [...]

Veteran teams left without a win

M H Two Counties O 50s v Nomads C C at Kelvedon C C on 20/6/2017 ( Timed Game ) Two Counties 269 for 3 dec. P Tomkins 128no, N Meakin 69, P Patel 28 ret hurt.  P Crego 2-60. Nomads 270 for 6 J Thornton 74, N Cader  46, J Gallant 43, J Antonis 42 M Blake 31. T Oram 3-90 Nomads won by 4 wickets. On a hot summers day at the picturesque Kelvedon ground the M H Two Counties O 50s entertained the Nomads CC  when batsmen took full advantage  of the helpful conditions. Batting first the Two Counties got off to a blistering start, unfortunately Skipper Pat Patel had to retire hurt on 28 with a muscle  injury that saw him miss the rest of the game. Phil Tomkins from the Kelvedon club scored a brilliant undefeated 128 on his debut and led the batting charge  Nick Meakin  (69) in his usual hard hitting style partnered Phil in a great stand of 159. The Two Counties declared with their total of 269 for 3 giving their opposition a fair chance. Paul Crego was the pick of the Nomads bowlers and his final analysis was 2-60. The Nomads made their intentions clear and took full advantage of some wayward deliveries. They were always up with the required  run rate and their first five batsmen were always positive in their approach and a close finish always looked likely. John Thornton made a deliberate 74 and he was supported well by Navaz Cader (46), John Gallant (43), Jude Antonis (42) and Michael Blake ( 31 ). Mark Comber (1-38) was the pick of the home bowlers and  it was he who made the initial [...]

Double defeat

M H Two Counties O 50s v Halstead Vets at Halstead C C on 14/6/2017 ( 45 over game ) Two Counties O 50s  210 for 5 S Henderson 71 ret hurt, K Ross 40, E Davy 34.  C Roper 3-40 Halstead Vets 212 for 7  M Johnson 103no, R Holman 42,  J Rose 30. C Hills 3-39, K Ross 2-47. Halstead Vets won by 3 wickets. At the fabulous Halstead ground the M H Two Counties batted first on a glorious summers day. The Two Counties side found runs hard to come by early on against a pacey home attack, Steve Henderson however got the Two Counties going with a fine 71, that was cut short by an injured groin that forced him to retire hurt. He was helped early doors by Jon Wiseman 27, and in particular Kevin Ross 40 who had a good stand with Steve before he had to retire. Eric Davy tried to keep the pace up before he fell to the wiles of Chris Roper 3-40 who was the most successful Halstead bowler. The Two Counties couldn’t force the run rate expected in the later stages of their innings and ended on 210 for 5 probably 20 or so runs light. Chris Roper was backed up well by Justin Rose, Mark Johnson and David Sears. Halstead lost a couple of early wickets when Neale Dakin and Mark Waithman were dismissed by Mark Comber and Chris Hills with the total on 28. Mark Johnson, however, with a superb undefeated 103, took the game by the scruff of the neck and shepherded Halstead home to a comfortable 3 wicket win with three overs to spare, He was aided by  good knocks [...]

Allison stands down with immediate effect

It is with regret that Allison Heathcote has had to step down from her role as League Secretary. Her paid employment has now become much more demanding and she feels that this will have a detrimental effect on her ability to continue with her secretarial role. In addition, Allison is shortly due to have another operation on her arm as a result of those tragic events in Tunisia some two years ago. We all send our best wishes for a successful operation and of course, our best wishes for the future. So, the search for a new secretary starts. Nominations for a volunteer to take over the role of League Secretary as from the AGM in October would be most welcome. In the interim, correspondence should now be directed to Assistant Secretary Alan Rogers at rogers9bh@btinternet.com
