Eastern Counties League

Essex enters teams in the Eastern Counties League, the Metropolitan Cup and the Tollemache Trophy. Admission to the A, B and C squads is decided by the selection sub-committee using an objective process based on results. In particular this takes account of performance in county, regional and national events. Note that selection for the Metropolitan Cup C team can be achieved via the Club Pairs competition and that only A squad players will be considered for the Tollemache.

Applications from members to join the squads are welcome. 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
