Eastern Counties League

Essex enters teams in the Eastern Counties League, the Metropolitan Cup and the Tollemache Trophy. The ECBA welcomes applications from members to join the county representative squad. Admission to the squad is decided by the selection sub-committee and is dependent on performance in county, regional and national events. If you wish to be considered to represent Essex please submit a summary of your results in recent years to the chair of selectors.

As well as the honour of representing your County, a victory is rewarded by Green Points on the scale of 1.0, 0.75 and 0.5 GPs respectively for A, B & C Teams. 

Three documents have been issued formalising various matters:

  1. ECBA Squad Captains' Duties
  2. ECBA Team Captains' Duties
  3. ECBA County Representation Players' Code
2018-2019 ECL Dates & Selection

Availability forms were sent out to the selected individuals on 25th January with responses required by 21st February 2018. The Season Programme and the team election for the various matches have now been published - see the table below. Further details will be added when known. 

The Tollemache Qualifier is scheduled for 17th - 18th November 2018 at Solihull.

General Notes
  • In advance of the match date any problems or queries should be referred to the relevant Squad Captain (Robert, Bernie or Jon).
  • Any problems on match day should be referred to the relevant team captain for the day.
  • Please would all reserves note that they are expected to remain available right up until the match start time as illness/emergencies can happen at any time.
  • If the relevant squad captain is not playing in a particular match, the team captain on the day should send the score sheet and match result to the squad captain immediately after the match - to be followed in due course by a short report on team performance, plus copies of the hands if they are not already available online.
