Braintree withdraw from Division Two

The league have received notification from Braintree CC that following their AGM and concern about sufficient player resources on a Sunday in 2019, they have reluctantly made the decision to withdraw from the NECL.

This will unfortunately, reduce the second division to six teams, meaning just ten fixtures in the campaign. Once again we would implore clubs in the Second Division to re-arrange rained off and conceded games where possible, so as to maximise cricket in the division.

Due to withdrawing after the League AGM, Braintree will be fined £100 as per Rule 12 of the league rules.
