Please note for the close season that the process for player registrations and transfers have changed. Please see HERE. Club administrators now need to keep an eye out in their Play-Cricket admin section for such requests which should, as with the old process, be dealt with in a timely manner.

The ECB have issued a very important document regarding a recent Court case and overseas players and visas. Please take some time to read this, as in particular it offers advice on certain visa types. See the document HERE

Please will ALL away Clubs check scorecards by close of business on a Wednesday each week to add missing details.

Sadly for a number of Clubs a number of relegation issues were settled yesterday and likely promotions and more relegations will follow next week.


Season to date details HERE

The time of season arrives where we start to very carefully watch ‘strength’ of teams. Unless with good reason, regular 1st team players should not now suddenly be dropped to your 2nd XI! If in doubt about selection please email for a decision. Please do not leave it open for debate afterwards.

Congratulations to Tunbridge Wells who won the ECB National Kent County stage yesterday.

The Kent Cricket League beat KCCC County 2nd XI by five wickets in the first of two Twenty games at the County Ground Beckenham today. The County 2′s set the KCL 147 to chase which the League side reached in the 19th over. Second match abandoned by rain.

To all Kent League Clubs and Chairmen, Men and Women members and cricket lovers. I would be delighted if you could share the attached Information here about my forthcoming Fundraising Cricket Match at Whitstable CC, it’s Next Sunday 2nd July.

The reason for the Event is to raise funds to support the Children in Sri Lanka who have been badly effected and displaced in some cases from their homes and most significantly have lost all of their possessions including school books and bags to carry to school. My objective is to raise the Funds necessary to replace school bags and exercise books as a first target. The bags will carry the logo ‘Made in Kent ‘if we reach our target.

It would be great if you could come and support the day and in any case you would be welcome to make a donation to the cause by contacting me directly. I can give you Bank details to transfer a donation to or if you like to receive a raffle prize or item to Auction on the day. I imagine any of you familiar with The Whitstable Cricket club will enjoy seeing some of our ‘more mature legends’ who will be performing in the game! Also those of you who may have been to Sri Lanka will know how generous and enthusiastic about the game of Cricket people are their and how it would significantly help them to raise some funds to support them.

Many thanks to you all and enjoy your Season’s in the Sun! John Butterworth(JB Whitstable CC&Sri Lankan Tourist)
