  2. The two GP events are open only to players giving first allegiance to Essex because the winners can represent Essex in National competitions.
  3. The BP events are open to any EBU members.
  4. The Warboys and Club Pairs are restricted to ECBA members, but with the further restriction that the Warboys is restricted to past and present Essex A or B squad members, who are excluded from the Club Pairs (which is otherwise open).

Notes

  1. National Pairs: From 2015, the County heats will be discontinued, so this competition has been dropped from the Eve Goblets. There will, however, continue to be Trophies awarded to each member of the Essex pair that progresses furthest through the competition and is highest placed.
  2. Teams of 4 Plate: Free entry for first- and second-round losers in the Teams of 4. Direct entry is possible for a fee of £10.
  3. Various: This competition is in abeyance for the the 2017/18 season. It may be resurrected in future years.
  4. Warboys: This is now a 4-session training scheme for the Essex A/B Squad. It is by invitation only, £5 / session. It is not envisaged that it will have an overall winner, so the status of the trophy is moot. In addition, a B-Flight event for the C-Squad is under consideration.
  5. League Cup: This competition (was) open to any Regional League Team, but is currently in abeyance.
