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 (revised) scale of 1.0, 0.75 and 0.5 GPs respectively for A, B & C Teams. 

ECL Roles, Responsibilities & Code of Conduct

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

The Selection Committee met in early January 2018 to decide the composition of the squads for the 2018-19 season. 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 selections 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 a venue TBA. For more information (in due course) follow this link

The situation with regard to the Metropolitan Cup will be announced when confirmed. 

This page includes links to the ECL tables on the EBU Website and to the Butler-scored spreadsheets / reports (when available).

Note that for home matches, automated scoring & reporting, including Butler scoring, is being prototyped. The old-format Butler spreadsheet has also been produced. Any slight differences are down to diverse rounding strategies.

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.
  • The "A" Team Captain should send the match results sheets for all three teams, together with the completed and signed Result Sheet, (home matches only) to Keith Thompson as soon as possible after the match.

 

 

2017-2018 ECL Dates & Selection

The Selection Committee met on 7th January 2017 to decide the composition of the squads for the 2017-18 season. Availability forms were sent out to the selected individuals on 29th January with responses required by 21st February 2017. The season Programme and the team selections 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 18th - 19th November 2017 at St John's Hotel, Solihull. For more information (in due course) follow this link

The situation with regard to the Metropolitan Cup will be announced when confirmed. 

This page includes links to the ECL tables on the EBU Website and to the Butler-scored spreadsheets / reports (when available).

The season has got off to a great start with all three teams winning their opening matches against Norfolk, but sadly this was more than reversed when all three teams lost their next matches against Cambs & Hunts. 

Note that for home matches, automated scoring & reporting, including Butler scoring, is being prototyped. The old-format Butler spreadsheet has also been produced. Any slight differences are down to diverse rounding strategies.
