North Essex Cricket League

In the driest of summers, the ironically named It's Not Really Wet Rain, is a recommended read for any cricketer. Written by highly respected cricketer Simon Swinn, the book maps the first seventy years of Abberton Cricket Club, the most successful NECL club. Many landmarks for the club are charted against modern history milestones in an entertaining way.

To reserve your copy at £10, contact Marc Fox on 07540 256560 or via the Abberton website or facebook page.

Harpenden Cavaliers, are basing their 2018 tour in Colchester, from 15-17 June 2018. They are still looking for a 40ov/timed games on Saturday 16 June. This will be their 20th tour, having previously been all over the UK, and they invariably get invited back, which must be a good sign! They play competitive cricket but in a great spirit, and always put plenty of cash behind their hosts' bars. 

If you can accommodate during this weekend, please contact Fraser Tant, Harpenden Club Captain

I have been asked by Karachi Gymkana to try and organise 3 fixtures for them between Sunday 8th July and Thursday 12th July 2018 whilst they are touring down at this end of Essex. Frinton entertained them 2 years ago and we have agreed to host them on Wednesday 11th July, so they require 2 other games between these dates. They are of a decent standard cricket wise and very sociable. As they are in Pakistan at the moment, if a Club is interested, please contact myself on 07432 689935.

Many thanks
