Due to current road works in Maidstone town centre it is advisable to try and avoid this area or leave additional time to reach the ground.

We would like to tank a majority of Clubs of their excellent inputting of scorecard to date this season. A few notes for the less well inputs.

“Unsure” is not an acceptable entry. If you are unable to find a player on Play-Cricket, please email with the name you cannot find.

Please add fall of wickets to scorecards. This is expected, especially at 1st XI level. Record partnerships cannot be calculated without.

Another reminder – please check ALL your scorecard by Wednesday lunchtime each week and add missing catchers or other errors to save us having to chase you for detail.

Please will those adding results on a Saturday evening please try to remember to add umpires at the time. It is important for the League to know who is umpiring matches.

Please will all Club Play-Cricket administrators check their away scorecards each week to ensure their opposition has entered the full details of the game (catchers, unsure players etc.) by Wednesday lunchtime and add any missing detail. Thank you. Please also see Scorecard update HERE

Players Over the age of 18 – The ECB strongly recommends that all adult recreational cricketers wear helmets for certain activities, preferably which meet the most recent British Safety Standard.

Under 18′s – The position in relation to U18′s currently remains unchanged, and is governed by the ‘ECB Guidance on the Wearing of Cricket Helmets by Young Players’ card provided with the recent copy of the magazine and also found at

We have two sides entering the CCC Sovereign Trophy this year, Divisions 1/2 and Divisions 3/4/5.

The Division 1/2 team will be manged by Liam Tegg 07584 302237 and have a bye in the first round with their opening match to be on 25th May at a home venue tba.

The Division 3/4/5 team will be managed by Mark Tucker  and will play at Minster on 11th May against the Caribbean Cup Club Competition XI.

Please contact above if you would like to be considered for selection.

Gravesend will be emailing affected Club, but please could 1st XI Saturday oppositions visiting the Bat & Ball arrive for games after 11.00 a.m. as due to junior cricket their Clubhouse will not be open until then and car park congested.

It is sad to announce that Hollingbourne 2nd XI have had to withdraw from Division 4, 2nd XI for 2016.

Only one side from this Division and Division 5, 2nd XI will thus now be relegated this season.
