Click the link to get a report of the results in each of the 12 Divisions for the 2016 season. This will be updated once the 2017 season has begun.
All Divisions;


Clubs and umpires are reminded that we are now in a limited over situation in respect of points awarded in games. Should a game get curtailed and enough overs are completed to obtain a result the points for the game will be 30 points for the winning side, the losing side will receive only the bonus points earned.
Therefore in a reduced overs game that is completed, the minimum 9pts rule DOES NOT APPLY. If the game is abandoned the usual 9 Points, or Points Earned if greater than 9, will apply.

Any queries on the playing conditions should be addressed to the PCSC Chairman Andy Shanks or the League Chairman Derek Barnard.


The East Sussex Cricket League will be playing Limited Overs Matches with effect from Saturday 8th July. Divisions 1-5 will play 45 overs per side and Divisions 6-12 40 0vers per side. All clubs should read carefully the playing conditions as shown on pages 69 to 71 of the Handbook. Clubs —must— use the Parker Discs which should be placed as per instructions on Page 71. Failure to use the discs will entail severe penalties.

Any queries on the playing conditions should be addressed to the PCSC Chairman Andy Shanks or the League Chairman Derek Barnard.

Completion of Match Scorecards

Clubs are reminded that scorecards must be completed on Play-Cricket.com by no later than 6pm on the Tuesday following each match.
Late completion will result in a 2-point deduction per missing name.
Your club website will alert you to any scorecard containing unsure players on the admin home page, so please check this regularly.
League contacts received a message on Sunday 9th July to this effect. Dave Procter


Umpires (and players) are respectfully reminded that there is no such thing as an automatic leg-side wide in our league's cricket, at any stage of the season.
Any ball which is bowled wide of the off side or leg side becomes a wide if it is sufficiently wide that in the opinion of the umpire it is impossible to execute a normal cricket shot.

If you are a club player who does not have a game on the following Saturday
