Welcome to the Parker Building Supplies East Sussex Cricket League Play Cricket website.
Among the objects of the League are: To promote, encourage and foster the playing of cricket, interest in cricket generally and in particular in the County of East Sussex, and to organise cricket on a competitive basis within the spirit of the game.
We have currently 57 clubs in membership with, at the beginning of the season, some 120 teams in 12 divisions.
If you are considering affiliating your own club to our league please contact the Hon. Secretary.
If you want to learn more about the individual clubs and teams in our league you may wish to go to our own website which is to be found at www.escl.org.uk.
This is where you can access important messages, read the minutes, consult the fixtures, check your club’s details in the database (which because it is updated every week is always more up-to-date than the printed version), refer to the rules and appendices and much more. Please acquire the habit of visiting www.escl.org.uk regularly and often to ensure that your club has not missed some important announcement. This applies out of season as well as during the summer months.

Umpires' Marking Scheme 2014 Season
Firstly we thank all the captains who have taken the time and effort to fill in the umpires' marks form this season.
Sadly, though, a few have either forgotten or simply not bothered and this may reflect in this week's (Thursday 18th September) committee meeting deciding to deduct points from clubs who have failed to submit the form on occasions. I do not believe this will affect any promotion or relegation places, though.
We would also like to thank all the umpires who have participated in officiating league fixtures this season, and to report that ALL umpires were of a sufficient standard over the course of the season. The marks have been collated and by the middle of next week all umpires who officiated in at least 5 games will receive a letter with their marks in it. If you umpired fewer than five games please contact the league on firstname.lastname@example.org and a mark will be provided to you.
Thanks once again, Chris
