For years I have thought that the maximum points a team can gain from a match is 20. Not so it seems, as today's Ladies T20 Section B match between Shotley Peninsula and Hadleigh has been entered into Play-Cricket like this: Shotley Peninsula Hadleigh Game Points 0 15 Penalty Points 24 47 Batting Points 95 88 Bowling Points 0 0 Total Points 71 56 Certainly a new record for the competition, but one that will not last beyond amendment!!!

Copdock & O.I. III have had to make their fourth concession of the season tomorrow, when they were due to play Sudbury III. Under Rule 17a, they do not suffer any additional points deduction, but the team will not be accepted for entry into the Two Counties Cricket Championship for the following season unless they gain the approval of the Annual General Meeting, and then they will have to start in the lowest division.
Worlington defeated East Bergholt in the all Two Counties tie of the National Village Cup Regional Final. Batting first, Worlington posted 324-3 from their 40 overs thanks to personal bests from openers Graham Ford (136*) and Ziaf Kulasi (151). East Bergholt then closed on 252-6 in reply with George Foster's knock of 90 the best effort for the visitors. The win gives Worlington their third Regional Title in the competition, and they now host Langleybury CC of the Saracens Hertfordshire League in the first National Round (last 32) on Sunday 24th June
There is a worrying trend in scorecards not being completed, a number with missing players. This is somewhat surprising in so much as, team cards with all the players names should be being exchanged prior to matches starting, so the scorers should know whom is participating. As of Saturday morning, 16th June, the full list of incomplete scorecards is as follows: and some go back two weeks now. June 10th: Melton St. Audrys v Shotley Peninsula, Ladies T20 Section B: Scorecard not started. June 10th: Woolpit v Felixstowe & C. II. Ladies T20 Section B: Woolpit need to register one player. June 9th: Nowton v Kelvedon & Feering II, Division Five, Kelvedon player missing. June 9th: Dunmow II v Eye & District, Division Eight: Seven Eye players are "unsure". June 9th: Kelvedon & F. III v West Mersea II: Division Nine South: one West Mersea player unregistered. June 2nd: Mildenhall II v Copdock & O.I. II - Division Two: Scorecard not even started. May 6th: Bury St. Edmunds v Copdock & O.I. - Ladies T20 Section A: Alex Stanford listed as playinng, but has not been registered. I hope the threat of further points deductions will get this list dramatically reduced in the next couple of days.

It is very distressing to report that there is a group of players going around clubs in the Suffolk area, and registering to play in the Two Counties Cricket Championship for those clubs using different but similar names, different dates of birth, and varying places of birth and entry dates into the UK. The clubs involved are all now aware of the situation that they may have been duped and no blame is being attached to the clubs, and they have agreed not to select the players from now on. The players, on the other hand, are now having their "multiple" registrations withdrawn. It is possible that the players may now approach another club, and we wish to make clubs aware that all may not appear to be as it seems with them, and that registration will be futile. The players, not all necessarily at all three clubs, have turned out during 2017 and 2018 for Ipswich & East Suffolk, Yoxford, and now this season they have also turned out for Copdock & Old Ipswichians. The names have been as follows: for Ipswich & East Suffolk, Akhtar Khan. For Yoxford, Ahkter Khan, Ankit Singh, Santosh Sasanjani, and Dhaval Sasanjani. For Copdock & Old Ipswichians, as Aktar Khan (registration was rejected), Ankit Sajnani, Dhaval Sajnani, and Santosh Sajnani. Obviously the results of matches may have been different had these players not been playing in them, and this entire matter will be dealt with at the next Management Sub-Committee Meeting.
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.
