Start Times of Fixtures Now Earlier

Please note that the start time for fixtures moved to 1.00pm on 18th August, and for the next week (25th August) and will move again on 1st September to 12.30pm.

Spirit of Cricket

"In addition to remaining responsible for the Laws of Cricket, MCC has also long believed that the game should be played in accordance with its traditional 'spirit'." So begins an article on "What is MCC Spirit of Cricket?"
ESCL would like to remind teams (and their captains in particular) of the importance of honouring that Spirit, whatever the circumstances.
May what remains of our current season be both competitive and sportsmanlike.

Bowling Restrictions for the Second Half of the Season

The Rule is 9 overs per bowler in 40 and 45 overs - OVERS PER BOWLER In 45/40 over matches the maximum number of overs a bowler may bowl is 9.

This is to confirm that it is 9 overs per bowler, it was thought that this would aid clubs lower down the league who struggle to find bowlers.

High Easter CC of Essex

My club, High Easter CC of Essex are looking to organise a Sussex tour in September. We play in the T Rippon Mid Essex division 3 and we'd be medium strength, just looking for a friendly, social game.The dates we need a game on are Saturday 15th or Sunday 16th September
Best Regards, Jon Norgrove, High Easter Cricket Club, jwwnorgrove@gmail.com

Payment for Teas

Nothing has changed regarding the payment for teas in the ESCL area. There is some confusion because if a club has a first XI in the SCL area, it falls to the home team there to meet the full cost of tea.

Next year, a decision will have to be made which system to adopt county-wide, but for the moment we have this split system.

Playing Conditions for new SCL in 2019

Dear Club,
The Adult Leagues Group would like to know what our recreational cricketers want to see from the new league in terms of playing conditions and associated matters. Therefore, we have created a survey designed to obtain as much feedback as possible. The link below will take you to the survey, which should take about 5 minutes to complete and will be open until 13th August.


Over the next few days, the link will be posted on the league website, social media and e-mailed directly to all registered Play Cricket users, but please also disseminate this e-mail throughout your membership. That way, everyone in your Club can have their say in the future direction of recreational cricket.

The feedback received will be used to inform the proposals that will be voted on by Clubs at the AGM in October.

Kind Regards,
(on behalf of the Adult Leagues Group) Gary Stanley, 07775 933 311; www.sussexcricket.co.uk



Next possible committee meeting Thursday 13th September 2018 at 7.00 pm at Buxted Park
