League News

Website Update


Sadly due to the sudden passing of John Hepburn the league website administrator, the league are having to rethink the website and are looking to move all administration and information over to the North Essex Cricket League Play-Cricket website.

First up the Weekly Results will no longer be uploaded to current website, but should be available on the Play-Cricket website by 10pm on the day of the match as captains or representatives of the HOME side should upload the Results Summary to Play-Cricket following the match.

Tables will automatically be updated as results are entered into Play-Cricket.

Full scorecards should then be entered into Play Cricket within 48 hours of the match by the HOME side. Away side can make corrections or help out if necessary.
Currently there are a number of matches from the start of the season that are still not completed on the system. If they are not completed by this Friday, then fines will start to be imposed.

Games currently needing action ;
18th April Division 1 Colchester & E.E. v. Cavaliers – Incomplete scorecard (both innings)
25th April Division 1 Colchester & E.E. v. Springfield – Only CEE batting completed
9th May Division 2 Sudbury v. GHL – GHL opener showing as Unsure
2nd May Division 3 Coggeshall v. Witham – only Result Summary completed
9th May Division 3 Witham v. Real Oddies – a number of Real Oddies players not in member database for that club.

If you are the Away Side and you know your team for the next NECL game, please make life easier by adding the full team to Play Cricket before the start of the game.

Umpire Assessments
If you have neutral umpires appointed by the league, an Umpire Assessment should be completed by both clubs, for both umpires after the game. These are being automated by Play-Cricket (probably to a clubs Play Cricket administrator) – some have been completed without any problems.

However, there are some outstanding, so can these please be addressed as soon as possible…again the first port of call maybe your club Play-Cricket administrator.
April 18th Div 1 Colchester & E.E. v Cavaliers (both teams)
May 2nd Div 2 Great Waltham v. Great Totham (both teams)

Other information will be migrated from www.necl.co.uk to NECL Play-Cricket (https://nessexcl.play-cricket.com/Aboutus ) over time, so please bare with us at this time.
