A Message from Our Sponsor Dear fellow cricket lovers Well, the Ashes down-under weren't great were they! And in my humble view things won't improve until the basic structure of the game at county level is dramatically improved. You simply can’t have 18 teams and we surely have to have a competition whereby the best players in the land – under central contracts with England – can play in county cricket, otherwise all the players coming through the county game to Test level will never compete against the best, which is surely a must. However, I am happy to say the structure of the Saracens Hertfordshire Cricket League goes from strength to strength. That doesn't just happen and it's down to people like Tony Johnson and others who by their own incredible efforts over some 20 years or more have made our League one of the largest in the country. I've often quoted him, but President Mandela said, "sport speaks to youth in a language they can understand". That's why cricket is so important. It includes kids, it enables them to play in that all-important thing called a team – teams not gangs! – and in my view, it makes us better people. Here's to a great summer of cricket. All the very best

Nigel

Foreword 2018 It has always been a privilege to write the first few paragraphs in our annual handbook, but this year it is more special, as we are celebrating two significant milestones for Hertfordshire cricket. It is 50 years since the county first embraced league cricket and we are entering the 25th season for the Hertfordshire League as we know it today. Looking back, we would like to think that we, along with the many committee members in the past, have left a legacy on which those coming forward to run league cricket in the next decades will continue to develop our sport. Our achievements and direction of travel over the last 50 years are well documented in the coming pages, from various contributors and show how much has changed. The cycle of formation, breakaways and mergers is typical of any business with growing pains and in that respect, we are no different. You are the judge of whether you think it has been for the good or not, whether it be versions of the points systems, match rules or match formats, but I suspect that the fundamental changes in the coming season, as voted for in February, signal a major turning point. Time will tell. We decided in the depths of winter that we should celebrate our first half century with an event, once our season has ended, at the headquarters of cricket. By the time you are reading this, you will have had the first opportunity to order tickets for your club to join us at Lord’s on Friday 21st September in the Nursery Pavilion for our Celebratory Dinner. All clubs have a chance to attend, and I hope that as many of you as possible will take your minimum allocation of five places and come and have a good night out and show your support for our League and sponsors. After the initial allocation, clubs will be able to bid for extra places or tables depending on the number of unsold tickets . We have made a big commitment to Lord’s and thanks go to Tony Rhodes for his ongoing efforts as organiser of the event. Barry Hellewell, as you will see in his Secretary’s Report which follows, has penned a detailed synopsis of all you need to know about what happened in 2017 and some of what is ahead for this year, so I will stick to offering a few thoughts looking forward. It will not surprise you that our role is to be predominantly in sync with the ambitions of the ECB and to provide cricket for all, a pathway to greatness for those with the extra talent and an enjoyable experience for those of us in “clubland”, players and spectators alike. Sounds simple, but often proves to be the opposite. All the press and speculation on city-based franchises, cricket on free to air, the expansion of white and pink ball cricket and the worldwide appetite for test cricket has moved on in the last twelve months, and we must try and anticipate how any of those might have an impact on clubs and therefore drive the direction of the league. The debates at club and league level on issues such as start time, end time, length of game and format continue to be voiced around the country, and the club vote at our AGM in February, to remove the option of declaration cricket for this season in all but our Premier and Championship divisions, is a major shift in direction . This change already appears to have become our “Brexit” vote, so we will monitor the effect on participation as the season unfolds. We will review the impact, along with the AGM decision to reject shorter matches in the lower third of the divisions, and publish the results in the autumn. What, if anything, should or can we do about the relative demise of Sunday cricket? Despite best efforts, many clubs have still not cracked the problem, either because players are not available, or the belief that the cost of keeping the club open is not sustainable. The Readers 8


Trophy and the T20 cup draws are in place, but, as last year, only around 20% of our clubs are participating. Numbers remain steady but have not increased, despite those teams that do sign up every year giving us positive and valuable feedback. More clubs this year have agreed to enter a team in the County Under 19 Competition and, after reviews of its inaugural year, many of our clubs have signed up to the ECB’s “All Stars Cricket” initiative which is aimed at getting vast numbers of 5 to 8-year-olds into local clubs to see if that sparks their interest in cricket. I mentioned earlier that increased costs are a potential inhibitor to the wellbeing of clubs, so it is reassuring to know that our financial position remains very healthy for yet another year. Thanks are again primarily due to Nigel Wray and Saracens for their continued backing as our prime sponsor, since 2000, and to Neil Pullen and his team at Kookaburra Readers, who are pleased to remain as our supplier of sponsored league balls. We work closely with both organisations to promote their brands and help clubs by various means to reduce running costs, as mentioned in Barry’s report. For the third year running we will credit to each club for their ball order costs at 15%. We have also announced a joint venture fund with Herts Cricket Ltd of £60,000 to offer interestfree loans up to £5,000 repayable over two or three years for clubs to carry out specialist endof-season works on their grounds. We believe that this makes effective use of our reserves without depleting them, supports those clubs that need extra help and goes towards our aim to improve facilities throughout the County. Full details will be available before the start of the season. Our thanks are due once again to Mike Wood for spending so much of his time working with the developers of our website on the latest batch of enhancements, many of which are designed to provide for more online reporting and, with the theme of cost-savings for clubs in mind, offer the potential to reduce fines. Two bits of news regarding the ECB Association of Cricket Officials. Firstly, umpires’ courses have gone online as well as being classroom based, and hopefully more players and/or budding umpires will be able to get to grips with the myriad of law changes in place for this year. Secondly, the long-awaited availability of an IT based ECB product that links without fuss to Play-Cricket, to enable live scoring, has now arrived and should hopefully address the shortage of qualified or competent scorers. As I announced at the AGM, Colin Munday decided to stand down from his role as Treasurer due to workload pressures, so I would like to record our sincere thanks for his years with us on preparation and production of our annual accounts, and we wish him well for the future. I am pleased to say that we have found an ideal candidate, Ross McCaskill, to take on Colin’s role with effect from the start of the season, subject to a vote at an EGM to be held before the Captains’ meeting. With a view to succession planning we are always looking to co-opt anyone interested in taking on a role on one of our committees, so please make yourself known if you want to talk to us. Finally, my personal thanks go to the members of our Executive Committee and its associated sub-committees, who travel the extra mile every year to keep the wheels turning; and on their behalf, I express our thanks to the many volunteers in our clubs out there who richly deserve all the support we can give them. Have a successful and enjoyable season.

Secretary's Report 2017 (As delivered to the AGM)

Is this really my ninth secretary’s report? I know that time doesn’t pass more quickly as you get older but can it really be nine years since Richard Bayliss stood down after fourteen years as League Secretary? As we enter our twenty fifth year as the Herts League and the fiftieth year of league cricket in Hertfordshire it is, perhaps, a time to reflect. That is done in detail in this year’s commemorative edition of our handbook and the very same Richard Bayliss has written affectionately about league cricket in Hertfordshire over that period. Thanks to Richard and his co-contributors for all his and their efforts in producing that history you will have to wait for publication to read it. For my part I shall, as usual, confine my thoughts to 2017 although the point is that if you take the date away we do much the same now as we have ever done. The details may have changed but the principles stay the same. We provide a structure within which nearly 3,000, largely amateur, cricketers take the field every Saturday between the start of May and the first week in September and mostly have a cracking good time so doing. Welwyn Garden City had a better time than most, winning the end of season play-off in a tense game against Totteridge Millhillians, where they won with one wicket in hand. They also finished top of the league in the regular season. With the exception of 2016 the same team has won both since the top sides came back into our league from the Home Counties Premier League and whilst some may question the need for the play-offs, the cream generally seems to rise to the top. West Herts sped through the Championship and are back in the top division replacing Luton Town and Indians who were there for only one season. After two years of the Championship runners up winning the play-off with the second bottom side in the Premiership, Hoddesdon failed at the last hurdle leaving Hertford where they were for 2018. In the cups, Bishop’s Stortford won the Readers T/20 and Broxbourne beat Knebworth in the Trophy final. At Northchurch on a cold damp September Sunday, the hosts beat Old Elizabethans in the Sunday T/20 final. Well done to all winners who picked up their prize money and trophies at Allianz Park in a very successful presentation day in October. Congratulations are also due to Reed who beat all-comers in winning the National Village Trophy at Lord's in September. 2017 was a first for us in that in the Premier and Championship limited overs season we had ‘pyjama cricket’ with pinks balls and black stumps. Whether other leagues have done so before us I know not but we gave it a go and I think the vast majority of players, spectators and clubs enjoyed it. Readers, through their parent company Kookaburra, supplied the pink ball (another first in that it was an Australian manufactured ball) and although there was some criticism of the ball in that it was, perhaps, more suited to Australian conditions, it did the job and for the coming season Readers have developed their Premier league ball by ‘colouring’ it pink and we will be the first league to try that. The whole thing was launched at the captains’ meeting with a multi-coloured photo- shoot before the meeting where most sides had representatives donning their coloured gear and smiling or grimacing at the camera. The traditional conservatism of the game is fast being replaced by innovation at the professional level and many believe that we must do the same to keep the club game thriving. The Hampshire league, which has over 306 teams, has lost 40 teams over the last 2 seasons 10


Coloured clothing comes to the Herts League

due to, among other things, the length of the game, late finishes and travel distances. On the agenda for the AGM are two motions which hope to address our concerns in this area (shorter games in divisions 7a to 10b and Rickmansworth’s proposal to have all games below the Championship of a limited overs nature) and whilst we have fared better than Hampshire, with the number of our teams remaining constant, we must not be complacent. We are joined by two new clubs for 2018. Lutonian bring their two teams and Markyate their only eleven into our structure. We wish them well and hope they enjoy their first taste of Hertfordshire League cricket. We try not to stand still and although an attempt at the 2017 AGM to introduce points incentives for providing qualified umpires below division 6b was roundly defeated there is no doubt that better officiating produces better cricket and all clubs should try to provide non-playing umpires if at all possible.The same is true of scorers. But here the continuing confusion that surrounds the various computerised scoring systems does not help to provide a coherent way forward and we must still ‘watch this space’ until the ECB and others get their ducks in a row. Then we might be able to make progress. That said Peter Hinstridge and his team managed to fill all but one of the 908 panel appointments for the season and Peter was also appointed ACO Eastern Region Chairman in 2017. The financial position is very healthy and we were able to give back to each club 15% of their ball costs and provide every club with a Kwik cricket set and a groundsman’s tape under the Saracens branding scheme. Both Saracens and Readers continue to provide brilliant sponsorship as they have done for many seasons which enable us to support all clubs and maintain a healthy bank balance. Colin Munday is standing down as Treasurer at this year’s AGM. He produced audited accounts for three past years in his first year in the job but due to a recent illness and a desire to travel the world in his retirement, he wishes to hand over his calculator to someone else and we have advertised on the website for a replacement. Thank you Colin for all your help. 11


Secretary's Report (cont'd) Our new all singing, all dancing website was launched in March thanks almost entirely to Mike Wood’s time and effort. Although we engaged Dragonstack to do the nuts and bolts there were times when we thought it might never happen and it was only through Mike burning the midnight, daylight and any other oil that you can think of that we were ready for the start of the season. A systems demonstration at our March Committee meeting showed that it had been worth the wait. As a result of the streamlined reporting system on the site, this year’s fines are down and we hope that with various ‘tweaks’ to the system over the winter that it will be even better in 2018. Whilst we can make our procedures easier to comply with, there are still failures that cost clubs money unnecessarily. Yes, the fines are down but they are still there. 2017 was also a year when many clubs were penalised by points deductions, which in some cases led to promotion being denied. One club was not promoted due to their facilities not reaching the standards necessary for their position in the structure. Another club was deducted points for playing an ineligible player throughout the entire season having not complied with the Home Office visa requirements. Again a sizeable number of captains could not show valid DBS clearance and their clubs were deducted points. At least with the DBS verification system now on-line those problems should be a thing of the past. On the disciplinary front there were 21 penalties imposed, 17 of which were accepted by the clubs. There were four hearings, two appeals, three teams had been issued with warnings, and there were eight letters of apology and code of conduct reminders were sent to six teams. One player committed a level four offence and was reported to the ECB. The committee works very hard, together and individually to keep the league running as smoothly as possible but sometimes things do not run with the precision of an operating theatre. That is not for want of effort or commitment but more because we are all volunteers with many other things to occupy us and we are human. Decisions are not taken lightly and a balance needs to be maintained between slavish adherence to our rules and constitution and the ethos and spirit of a recreational cricket league. We may not agree with the Home Office visa guidelines which to me are there to satisfy a desire to keep down immigration figures rather than to help develop home grown cricketers but we have to comply with them. We could turn a blind eye to our facilities requirements but they are there to help improve and maintain standards and if there are failings they must eventually be addressed. The DBS requirements are there for good welfare reasons and cannot be ignored and our disciplinary code has a real purpose which is to maintain the spirit of cricket and common decency within the game, attributes that have always been its hallmark. Clubs and players that feel hard done by should reflect on those sentiments and realise that they have a major role to play in keeping our league as a thriving place to play the amateur game and to continue with its development in the changing recreational environment. If we are not to suffer a decline in membership, a drop off in standards and disenchantment with the game as it changes, then we all have to pull together. 2018 marks the 25th year of the combined Hertfordshire League and the 50th year of league cricket in Hertfordshire. Tony Johnson will say more about that in his remarks in the handbook and at the AGM by signalling how we hope to celebrate that landmark. Tony along with Mike and others have been involved for all of those 25 years. Thanks are, as always, due to the efforts of the committee during the year and those co-opted to help in the many ways that are necessary to keep things on track. We may not be the biggest amateur league in the country (Hampshire seem to have that crown) but we are one of the best and I hope that we can continue to thrive in 2018 when the sun comes out and the heating is turned up. Barry Hellewell February 2018 12


Umpire & Scorer Registration Process

Background

Every club with a team playing in the Premier Division, Championship and Divisions 1 to 6b is required to register with the League every Umpire that it considers to be attached to the club whether that umpire has been supplied to the League Umpires Panel or will be standing in a match below Division 2b Scorers officiating in matches in the Premier Division, Championship and Divisions 1 to 2b must either be qualified at ECB ACO Club Scorer Level or have obtained dispensation from this requirement from the League.

Procedure

The registration of umpires and scorers will follow the same process as that used to register players. Within the Registration area of the League website you will be able to enter the name of each umpire and scorer attached to your club. For each umpire and scorer so registered you will be asked to indicate which category is applicable, as follows: Category Panel Qualified Dispensation Granted Club – DBS checked Club – Not DBS checked

Description An umpire listed on the Saracens Hertfordshire League Umpires’ Panel An umpire who has attended Stage 1 and Stage 2 courses or their equivalents. A scorer who has passed an ACO Level 1 course or equivalent. An umpire or scorer who has received dispensation from the League Umpires & Scorers Sub-Committee Any other club umpire or scorer not covered above, but in possession of a current DBS certificate Any other club umpire or scorer not covered by any of the above categories

Request for Umpire or Scorer Dispensation

A club seeking to obtain dispensation is required to complete the form ‘Request for Umpire Dispensation’ or ‘Request for Scorer Dispensation’ for each umpire or scorer for whom dispensation is being sought. The forms are available for download on the League website. The completed form should be sent by email to: Umpires: Peter Hinstridge peter.hinstridge@btinternet.com Scorers: Mike Arnold mikearnold.home@btinternet.com Please provide the details requested on the form, particularly concerning cricket, umpiring and scoring experience as applicable. We are looking for sufficient evidence of competence to allow an umpire to stand or a scorer to score despite not having attended a course and passed the examination. The expectation is that any person for whom dispensation is sought will have an adequate level of experience and have a current DBS certificate obtained through cricket or an application in progress. The objective of the match rule is to raise the standards of officiating and is not intended to prevent competent umpires and scorers from continuing to support their club. Attendance on a course without passing the exam will be regarded as adequate grounds for dispensation. Please note that dispensation is granted only for the current season. The objective remains to raise standards by requiring umpires and scorers to attend a course and further opportunities to achieve this will be provided during the winter, including one or more weekend courses in addition to the evening ones. 13

In Premier divisions and Divisions 1, 2a & 2b, the appointed umpires, shall return the team sheets to the League Registrations Officer for checking. Each club is responsible for ensuring that their players are correctly registered on the League website or on playcricket. com (whichever applies). Should any club be found to be playing a player under the wrong category, the club will forfeit 50% of the points they have gained thus far in the league for the team that the player has most represented. It is within the league’s powers to also ban players from the team thus punished from subsequently playing for lower teams, in line with 13, c, i above.

23


f)

If a club is found to have played a player under a false name, the team(s) which that player has represented will be automatically relegated. It is within the league’s powers to also ban players from the team thus punished from subsequently playing for lower teams, in line with 13, c, i above. Any team breaking either of these rules will face an extraordinary disciplinary procedure which could result in one or more of their teams being relegated automatically or possibly expulsion from the league. Any player transferring clubs (within Herts League) between 1st May and 30th June shall complete a transfer form, jointly with his new club, for submission to the League. A player moving to another Herts League club at any time shall be eligible to play for the new club only if all financial and other obligations to the former club have been discharged. The league has the power to suspend players from all matches in the League until the clubs involved agree that a player’s obligations to his original club have been discharged. Players changing clubs during the close season are outside of the jurisdiction of the league and it is always down to individual clubs to enforce their own policies around the payment of subscriptions and match fees. i On or before July 31st, in the event of a proven allegation against an unregistered player the team fielding the ineligible player will have 5 points deducted. Should the unregistered player be Under 18 on the day of the match, the penalty will automatically be 30 points. ii From the 1st of August onwards, any team that fields an ineligible player, will incur a 10 point deduction, excepting where the player is Under 18 on the day of the match, in which case the penalty will be 30 points. iii For the avoidance of doubt, a captain registered on the League website as captain who has not been DBS checked is deemed an ineligible player and the club will face the penalties in i) and ii) above.

14. Fixtures

All league fixtures shall be arranged centrally by the Fixtures Secretary and circulated to all clubs. No alteration shall be made to that list without the consent of the Fixtures Secretary acting on behalf of the Executive Committee. In the event of a club being unable to fulfil all fixtures on any day, the playing of the senior sides’ match(es) shall take precedence. If any match is postponed, which can only be with the consent of the Executive Committee, the match must be re-arranged to be played within 28 days of the original date, provided such date is before the final scheduled day of the season. If a date cannot be mutually agreed by the two clubs concerned, then the postponed match must be played on a date designated by the Executive Committee. Any team which fails to fulfil three fixtures in its division, may be asked by the Executive Committee to withdraw forthwith from that division, and all matches involving that team shall be declared null and void, with no points awarded. Any such decision to remove a team shall be made before 31st July in any season. Any team unable to fulfil a league fixture must advise its opponents by 8:00pm on the Thursday preceding the match and obtain formal acknowledgment of the cancellation from an officer of the opposing club. Failure to comply with these requirements will result in a financial penalty of £150 in total, payable to the opposing club. Non-payment of the penalty within 14 days shall attract a penalty on the same basis as set out for subscriptions under rule 10b, payable to the opposing club. Any club failing to meet its obligations under this rule will be fined additionally by the League at a rate not less than three times the outstanding debt. Any team failing to fulfil three or more fixtures during a season may be subject to demotion to a lower division in the following season, at the discretion of the Executive Committee. Where both fixtures between any two teams during the same season are arranged to take place at the ground or grounds of one of those teams the visitors shall pay to the home team the sum of £100.00 as compensation for having to provide the facilities twice in that season.

15. League Structure

a) The league will be divided into an appropriate number of divisions in a single structure with the exception of the regional divisions. All teams shall have the same rights to promotion to a higher division, providing the minimum requirements for facilities have been met.

d) The Executive Committee shall have the discretion to vary the numbers promoted and relegated between the regional divisions depending on the number of clubs participating in those divisions. e) In all cases, if any of the clubs in a promotion place is deemed ineligible, due to the standard of facilities or for any other reason, only the club finishing in the next place below the promotion places may be considered for promotion. f ) Clubs eligible for promotion shall be promoted only if their facilities are deemed acceptable by the Executive Committee. g) Where two or more clubs finish with the same aggregate of points, the club with the higher number of wins shall be placed higher in the league. If still equal, then the club with fewer losses shall be placed higher. If still equal, then the club with the higher scoring rate in completed matches, based on runs per wicket, shall be the higher. h) In the regional divisions the side finishing top will be the side that has the best average points score. That average shall be calculated by dividing the total number of points accumulated throughout the season by the number of games played. The number of games played shall not include games where an opponent has conceded a game or games against it but will include a game or games that it has conceded against its opposition. Where two or more sides finish with the same points the procedure in g) above shall apply. For the avoidance of doubt no points will be awarded for conceded matches in the Regional Divisions.

16. Officials, Team sheets, Results and Facilities Reporting

a) Clubs may face a fine of ÂŁ10 for failure to submit averages or other specific information required by the Results Secretary and notified to clubs. b) All clubs are required to co-operate in reporting results, when requested, to press agencies and newspapers. c) A facilities reporting scheme will be operated throughout the league. d) Any club which fails to submit a report when required and in accordance with the time limits and arrangements specified by the Executive Committee shall be subject to a fine of ÂŁ20, for each occasion it fails to report.

Hertfordshire Cricket has updated their affiliation package to meet these requirements, which include offering clubs in Hertfordshire more support. Clubs who affiliate to Hertfordshire Cricket are offered a variety of benefits. Further details of Hertfordshire Cricket affiliation package are available on http://www.hertscricket.org/page/clubs/club-affiliation-package/club-affiliation-package-9768/ Saracens Hertfordshire Premier Cricket League is a Hertfordshire based league.

Overseas Players, Managed Migration & Player Registration

All non EEA citizens will require prior permission (a visa) to come to the UK to participate in sport if they do not hold: • British passport (or is a spouse/ dependant of) • European passport (or is a spouse/ dependant of) • Ancestral visa

Most common visa types within Cricket are: • • • • •

Tier 5 Creative & Sporting Standard Visitor Visa Non Visa Nationals (not an actual visa) Tier 5 Youth Mobility Tier 4 (Student)

The ECB are not registered immigration officials and cannot offer definitive advice. Our understanding of the immigration rules for each visa is:

Tier 5 Creative & Sporting: Designed for professionals in their home country coming to UK, and acting as a professional. Can:

Be employed as a player and/or coach for the main sponsor, (or another “sponsor” under the Supplementary Employment rules).

Cannot:

Seek any other type of employment other than what they were granted permission for to enter the UK.

Non Visa Nationals: Nationals of Non Visa Nations such as Australia and New Zealand are not required to apply for a visa to visit the UK if they are here for less than 3 months initially, extendable to 6 months. They must comply with the Standard Visitor Visa (sports) immigration policy. Can:

Play sport whilst in the UK, as an amateur, providing they are classified as an “Amateur” by the Home Office.

Receive reasonable expenses for travel and accommodation (a reasonable amount would be based on the cost of living in that geographical location).

Cannot:

Seek employment – paid or unpaid.

Coach in any capacity.

Play sport as an amateur if they are classified as a “Professional” by the Home Office (paid or unpaid).

Tier 5 Youth Mobility Scheme: This provides individuals (aged 18 to 30) from certain countries an opportunity to come and experience living and working in the UK. Can:

Seek employment (but not as a sportsperson or coach).

Act as a Coaching Assistant, providing it is under direct supervision of a qualified coach

Receive reasonable expenses for travel and accommodation (a reasonable amount would be based on the cost of living in that geographical location).

Cannot:

Act as a professional sportsperson – paid or unpaid.

Play or Coach sport as an amateur if they are classified as a “Professional” by the Home Office

30


Tier 4 (Student): Most commonly used by students from abroad studying at a University in the UK. Can:

Play sport whilst in the UK, as an amateur, but only for their local club or the Education Institution they are studying at.

Cannot:

Be paid to play.

Seek employment that is not part of the subject they are studying - Coach in any capacity - unless it is part of their course they are studying.

Home Office definition of Professional vs Amateur: Paragraph 6 of the Immigration Rules set out the definitions for an amateur and a professional sportsperson: An “Amateur” is a person who engages in a sport or creative activity solely for personal enjoyment and who is not seeking to derive a living from the activity. This also includes a person playing or coaching in a charity game. A “Professional Sportsperson”, is someone, whether paid or unpaid, who : is providing services as a sportsperson, playing or coaching in any capacity, at a professional or semi-professional level of sport; or being a person who currently derives, who has in the past derived or seeks in the future to derive, a living from playing or coaching, is providing services as a sportsperson or coach at any level of sport, unless they are doing so as an “Amateur”. Deriving a living is defined as receiving payment for playing cricket and does not need to be the sole earnings. A person may also be considered as “seeking to derive a living” if they have played as part of a player pathway**. ** Player “Pathway”: A player may be considered to be on a “Pathway” and therefore classified as a “Professional Sportsperson”, if that person has played cricket above U17 at state/ province/ territory level (paid or unpaid) in any country.

Responsibility of Clubs: Clubs wishing to use the services of a Player who is in the UK, but not on a Tier 5 Creative & Sporting (Non FCC) visa, must ensure that the visa the person has, allows them to play and/or coach. They must make their own checks, and not solely rely on information that Agents provide them.

Overseas Players, Managed Migration & Player Registration (cont.) Sanctions and Penalties ECB:

If any club found to be playing an individual who is in breach of their visa the process is to: • Inform the Home Office of the breach • Recommend to the club that they no longer use the player • Inform the league and request that they take the appropriate action as per the league rules The same process will apply if a player, in breach of the visa rules, was denied registration in one league to be found registered in another. Home Office: “Employment” can be paid or unpaid. In cricket, the club Chairman holds the legal responsibility for all activities in the club and is therefore the “Employer” An employer who has not carried out the correct checks or chooses to ignore the requirements • • Faces a penalty of up to £20,000 • • The individual concerned could be stopped from entering the UK or deported • • If the club holds a current Tier 5 Sponsor License they can expect this to be withdrawn

Therefore clubs must ensure that registration details provided to SHPCL are correct. Penalties for wrong-doing are clearly outlined above, however they may also be subject to further SHPCL penalties.

1.1.

Disciplinary Regulations

Aims and Jurisdiction

The England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) is committed to maintaining the highest standards of behaviour and conduct in the game of cricket. The ECB Premier Leagues (the Leagues), including the Saracens Hertfordshire Premier Cricket League (the League), which operate within the jurisdiction of the ECB, share this commitment and take it very seriously. 1.2. These ECB Premier League Disciplinary Regulations, incorporating the Code of Conduct and Spirit of Cricket (as set out in paragraph 2 below) (Disciplinary Regulations), have been adopted by the Leagues and are intended to provide guidance and ensure uniformity in dealing with any alleged breach of the Code of Conduct. 1.3. The Disciplinary Regulations shall be complied with by all those who participate in the Leagues, including players, clubs, club officials, club members, the Leagues, representatives of the Leagues, umpires, and any other person or body who is from time- to-time engaged in cricket-related activities under the auspices of the Leagues (Participants). (For the purposes of paragraph 2 below, ‘players’ shall be deemed to include other Participants if the context of an alleged breach of the Code of Conduct so requires.) 1.4. Subject to the mutual recognition provisions (at paragraph 9 below), the League shall be responsible for the enforcement and administration of the Disciplinary Regulations in relation to Participants registered to the League and/or participating in cricket-related activities under its auspices. All Participants, by virtue of their registration with the League (whether directly or via a club) and/or participation in cricket-related activities under the auspices of the League, agree to be bound by the Disciplinary Regulations. 1.5. All Participants are required to cooperate with the Leagues in regard to discipline. Without prejudice to the generality of this requirement, every club shall take all reasonable steps to ensure the proper conduct of its Participants in accordance with the Disciplinary Regulations and shall not act in any way which is prejudicial or detrimental to the interests or reputation of the League(s) or the game of cricket. 1.6. There is nothing in the Disciplinary Regulations preventing or discouraging clubs from applying additional or stronger penalties in regard to breaches of the Code of Conduct beyond those set out in the Disciplinary Regulations, whether or not penalties may apply under the Disciplinary Regulations. To this end, it is important that clubs have their own code of conduct and disciplinary procedures in place. 1.7. At all times it is to be remembered that the core aim of the Disciplinary Regulations is to maintain the highest standards of behaviour and conduct in the game of cricket. The procedures detailed in the Disciplinary Regulations are intended to be fair, straightforward and proportionate to the needs of the Leagues and Participants, respecting fundamental principles of natural justice and fairness but recognising that those involved with the procedures will not typically be, and do not need to be, legally qualified. Therefore, as long as the principles of natural justice and fairness are not infringed, minor practical or technical points will not serve to invalidate the procedure or any decisions or findings under the Disciplinary Regulations. 1.8. In the event that any incident or other matter occurs which is not provided for by the Disciplinary Regulations (whether it relates to conduct, jurisdiction, procedure or penalty), then the Chairman of the League’s Discipline Committee or his nominated deputy (Discipline Chairman) or the League’s Disciplinary/Appeal Panel may take such action as considered appropriate in the circumstances, taking into account the specific circumstances and the principles of natural justice and fairness. 1.9. In the event that any alleged breach of the Code of Conduct falls under any other relevant ECB regulations (as may from time-to-time be in force), such as the ECB Safeguarding Complaints and Disciplinary Procedure, or is subject to investigation by the police or other public authority (or analogous body), or is subject to any other legal/regulatory process, the Discipline Chairman or the League’s Disciplinary/Appeal Panel may temporarily suspend the procedure under the Disciplinary Regulations.

2.

Code of Conduct and Spirit of Cricket

2.1. Code of Conduct 2.1.1. Captains are responsible at all times for ensuring that play is conducted within the Spirit of Cricket (as set out in paragraph 2.2) as well as within the Laws. 2.1.2. Players must at all times accept the umpire’s decision. Players must not show dissent at the umpire’s decision or react in a provocative or disapproving manner towards another player or a spectator. 2.1.3. Players shall not intimidate assault or attempt to intimidate or assault an umpire, another Participant or a spectator. 2.1.4. Players shall not use crude and/or abusive language (known as “sledging”), nor make offensive gestures or hand signals, nor deliberately distract an opponent. 2.1.5. Players shall not use language or gestures that offend, insult, humiliate, intimidate, threaten, disparage or vilify another person on the basis of that person’s (or that person’s perceived) age, race, religion, sexual orientation, colour, descent or national or ethnic origin. 2.1.6. Players shall not use or in any way be concerned in the use or distribution of illegal drugs or other criminal activity. 2.1.7. Participants shall not make any public or media comment which is prejudicial or detrimental to the interests or reputation of other Participants or the game of cricket in general. In this instance, media shall include (but not necessarily be limited to) press, radio, television, external websites, club websites, social networking sites and club match programmes. Nothing in this provision shall prevent any comment which constitutes honest opinion in regard to cricketing matters and which is made in a fair and respectful manner. 2.1.8. Participants shall not publicly disclose or comment upon any alleged breach of this Code of Conduct. 2.1.9. Participants shall not act in any manner which is against the Spirit of Cricket, otherwise improper, or prejudicial or detrimental to the interests or reputation of the League(s) or the game of cricket. 2.2. Spirit of Cricket Cricket is a game that owes much of its unique appeal to the fact that it should be played not only within its Laws, but also within the spirit of the game. Any action which is seen to abuse this spirit causes injury to the game itself. The major responsibility for ensuring the spirit of fair play rests with the captains. 2.2.1. There are two Laws which place the responsibility for a team’s conduct firmly on the captain. Responsibility of Captains The captains are responsible at all times for ensuring that play is conducted within the Spirit of the Game as well as within the Laws. Player’s Conduct In the event of any player failing to comply with the instructions of an umpire, criticising his decision by word or action, showing dissent, or generally behaving in a manner which might bring the game into disrepute, the umpire concerned shall in the first place report the matter to the other umpire and to the player’s captain, requesting the latter to take action. 2.2.2. Fair and Unfair Play According to the Laws the umpires are the sole judges of fair and unfair play. The umpires may intervene at any time, and it is the responsibility of the captain to take action where required. 2.2.3. The umpires are authorised to intervene in cases of: • Time wasting • Damaging the pitch • Dangerous or unfair bowling • Tampering with the ball • Any other action that they consider to be unfair 2.2.4. The Spirit of Cricket involves RESPECT for: • Your opponents • Your own captain and team • The role of the umpires • The game’s traditional values 34


2.2.5. It is • • •

against the Spirit of Cricket: To dispute an umpire’s decision by word, action or gesture To direct abusive language towards an opponent or umpire To indulge in cheating or any sharp practice, for instance: • Appeal knowing the batsman is not out; • Advance towards an umpire in an aggressive manner when appealing; and • Seek to distract an opponent either verbally or by harassment with persistent clapping or unnecessary noise under the guise of enthusiasm and motivation of one’s own side. 2.2.6. Violence There is no place for any act of violence on the field of play. 2.2.7. Players Captains and umpires together set the tone for the conduct of a cricket match. Every player is expected to make an important contribution to this. 2.3. Failure to comply with the provisions of the Code of Conduct may lead to disciplinary action, irrespective of a proven breach being related to a match not under the jurisdiction of the League.

3. Breaches and Reporting

3.1. Any Participant in breach of the Code of Conduct shall be liable to penalties in the manner prescribed in the Disciplinary Regulations. 3.2. A breach of the Code of Conduct will normally be categorised as Level 1, 2, 3 or 4, as set out in Appendix 1. 3.3. Reporting of Breaches by umpires 3.3.1. Subject to paragraph 3.3.3, for a first Level 1 breach of the Code of Conduct in a match, the umpire(s) should warn the player as to his future conduct and advise him and his captain that any repetition in the match will result in a formal report. 3.3.2. If any player receiving such a warning then commits a further Level 1 breach in the match, the umpire(s) should advise him and his captain that they will be submitting a formal report. 3.3.3. Should the umpire(s) consider that the first Level 1 breach is sufficiently serious, they have the authority to decide to submit a formal report without having previously issued any warning. The player and his captain should be advised accordingly. 3.3.4. In all instances of any perceived Level 2, 3 or 4 breach, the umpire(s) should complete a formal discipline report. 3.3.5. Any alleged breach of the Code of Conduct subject to a report by an umpire should be notified by telephone by the umpire to the Discipline Chairman within 24 hours of the end of the match. The written report should be sent, preferably by email using the standard discipline form, to the Discipline Chairman and be received within 72 hours of the end of the match. 3.4. Reporting of Breaches by Participants 3.4.1. Any allegation of a breach of the Code of Conduct by a Participant made against another Participant which arises from an incident during the course of a match or on the field of play should be reported by a team’s captain to the umpire(s). 3.4.2. Any allegation of a breach of the Code of Conduct by a Participant made against another Participant which does not arise from an incident during the course of a match or on the field of play should, ideally, be notified to the Discipline Chairman promptly after the incident giving rise to the allegation. Subject to any direction from the Discipline Chairman, a written report should be produced, which should allow the Discipline Chairman to understand i) the background to the alleged incident, ii) why a breach of the Code of Conduct is alleged and iii) the Level of breach alleged. Where possible, notifications and reports should be submitted to the Discipline Chairman by a club secretary or directly through playcricket.com (or in such other manner as may be directed by the Discipline Chairman). 3.4.3. The Discipline Chairman shall have an overriding discretion to accept or decline reports submitted under paragraph 3.4.2. Save for exceptional circumstances, such reports shall not be accepted relating to any alleged breaches of the Code of Conduct which have been, or could have been, reported by an umpire pursuant to paragraph 3.3.5 (the Discipline Chairman may 35


contact an umpire for his observations/views on allegations/the content of any report) or where there has been undue delay in making a notification or report. 3.4.4. Any complaints submitted under paragraph 3.4.2 must be made in good faith. The submission of a report which is trivial, vexatious, made for tactical reasons or otherwise improper may itself be treated as a breach of the Code of Conduct under paragraph 2.1.9.

4. Procedure

4.1. The Discipline Chairman shall, as soon as reasonably practicable following receipt of a report, inform the secretary of the concerned club (or other Participant as appropriate in the circumstances) that a report has been made. Clubs will have to deal with such matters and confirm their decision to the league within 72 hours of referral or the matter will go to hearing under rule 5 below. 4.2. Any Level 1 or Level 2 breach of the Code of Conduct should in the first instance be dealt with by the Participant’s club (in accordance with the guideline penalties detailed at paragraph 6 below), and the secretary of the club shall notify the Discipline Chairman within 48 hours of any action taken by the club or which it proposes to take. 4.3. Within 48 hours of receipt of notification from the secretary of the club as to its action or proposed action, the Discipline Chairman shall consider the matter and resolve: i. To take no further action except to record the complaint and notify the club of his decision; or ii. To endorse any action taken by the club and confirm that no further action is required; or iii. To refer the matter for a full disciplinary hearing (Disciplinary Hearing). Level 3 or 4 complaints will automatically be subject to a Disciplinary Hearing.

5.

5.1.

Disciplinary Hearings

At least seven days’ notice in writing of the Disciplinary Hearing shall be given to the Participant, either directly or via the secretary of his club as appropriate. The notice shall specify the alleged breach(es) of the Code of Conduct and the Level(s) of the alleged breach(es). 5.2. Where a charge against a player is referred to a Disciplinary Hearing, his captain and club may be charged separately under their responsibilities as set out in the Code of Conduct above. 5.3. In any case which is referred for a Disciplinary Hearing, the Discipline Chairman shall convene the Disciplinary Hearing within 14 days of the decision to refer. Any delay may only be granted at the discretion of the Chairman of the Disciplinary Panel (appointed in accordance with paragraph 5.6). 5.4. The accused Participant shall be entitled: • To submit written statements ahead of the Disciplinary Hearing; • To attend the Disciplinary Hearing; • To state his/its case (in the case of a club, by its secretary or other official); and • To be legally represented or supported by a colleague; and • To call witnesses. 5.5. If the Participant is to have representation present at the Disciplinary Hearing then the details of that representation must be given to the Discipline Chairman not less than 48 hours before the date of the hearing. 5.6. The Disciplinary Hearing shall be conducted by a Disciplinary Panel appointed by the Discipline Chairman and shall consist of not less than three persons and not more than five persons drawn from a list approved by the League’s Management Committee. The Discipline Chairman shall appoint one of the Disciplinary Panel members to act as Chairman of the Disciplinary Panel. None of the Disciplinary Panel should be connected with the Participant or any relevant opponent at the time of the alleged breach, or any Participant who might directly benefit from any disciplinary action. 5.7. A Participant involved in disciplinary proceedings will be solely responsible for meeting such costs or expenses as it or they may incur, including the cost of any legal or other representation. 5.8. The standard of proof shall be on the balance of probabilities.

6.1.

Penalties

If at a Disciplinary Hearing a breach of the Code of Conduct is proved, the Disciplinary Panel shall have the power to impose one or more of the following penalties, together with such order as to costs as it deems appropriate: In the case of a player:• To require the player to submit appropriate letter(s) of apology within a specified time; • To record a reprimand and to give a warning as to future conduct; • To impose a fine, not to exceed £500; • To suspend the player for one or more specified matches and/or for a stated period of time; • To deduct League points from the player’s team; and • To expel the player from the League. As a guideline only the following penalties should be expected in regard to suspensions for matches: Level 1 2 to 6 matches Level 2 3 to 8 matches Level 3 4 to 10 matches Level 4 A minimum of 10 matches In the case of a club:• To require the club to submit appropriate letter(s) of apology within a specified time; • To record a reprimand and to give a warning as to future conduct; • To impose a fine; • To deduct League points from the club’s team; • To expel the club from any competitions of the League; and • To relegate to any lower division of the League or to a ‘linked’ league. In the case of any other Participant • To require the Participant to submit appropriate letter(s) of apology within a specified time; • To record a reprimand and to give a warning as to future conduct; • To impose a fine, not to exceed £500; • To suspend the Participant for one or more specified matches and/or for a stated period of time; • To deduct League points from the Participant’s team; and • To expel the Participant from the League. 6.2. Panels may take the following factors into account when determining the penalties to be imposed: • If the accused Participant has pleaded guilty; • The Participant’s previous disciplinary record; • The position of the Participant (for example, if a player is a Captain); • The conduct of the Participant subsequent to him/it being warned and told that he will be reported; • In any case involving a player, the regularity with which the player plays cricket and at what level(s) of cricket he plays (for example, a fixed period suspension of two weeks is likely to have a more serious impact upon an ECB registered cricketer who plays regularly when compared to a purely recreational player who plays infrequently); • Whether conduct occurred on or off the field of play (as a guideline only, conduct occurring off the field of play will typically, save where there are significant aggravating factors, be more appropriately dealt with by the imposition of a fine); and • Any other mitigating or aggravating factors relevant to the circumstances of the breach. 6.3. The Disciplinary Panel shall have the power to suspend the operation of any part, or all, of the penalty it imposes for such period and subject to such terms and conditions it deems appropriate. 6.4. Where applicable, penalties may be carried over to apply in the following season. 6.5. Decisions of the Disciplinary Panel (a finding that a complaint is proved or not proved or a 37


6.6.

decision on penalty) shall be by majority vote; where necessary the Disciplinary Panel Chairman shall have a casting vote. In accordance with the Cricket Discipline Commission (CDC) Regulations, it is envisaged that in any case where a suspension is lawfully imposed upon an ECB registered cricketer by the Disciplinary Panel such a suspension shall be recognised by the CDC. ECB registered cricketers have a right of appeal to an Appeal Panel of the CDC and, in the event a suspension is imposed upon an ECB registered cricketer by the Disciplinary Panel, the Discipline Chairman shall, as soon as practicable, report the matter in writing to i) the ECB Head of Cricket Operations (First Class) and ii) the ECB Head of Non-First Class Cricket.

7. Appeals 7.1.

Where a breach of the Code of Conduct has been proved at a Disciplinary Hearing, a Participant shall have the right of appeal. This right should only be exercised in good faith upon reasonable grounds. Where more than one Participant (e.g. a player and his club) appeals in relation to the same incident, they must do so separately. 7.2. A notice of appeal setting out the grounds must be given in writing to the Discipline Chairman within seven days of the decision of the Disciplinary Panel being communicated to the Participant in writing, together with a deposit. The amount of the deposit shall be £250 for each Club and £100 for each other Participant exercising their right of appeal. 7.3. If a notice of appeal is given, the penalty shall not take effect pending the hearing of the appeal, which shall take place as soon as is practicable and in any event within 14 days of receipt of notice of the appeal. 7.4. The appeal shall be by way of a new hearing before an Appeal Panel (Appeal Hearing). The Appeal Panel shall be appointed by the Discipline Chairman and shall consist of not less than three persons and not more than five persons drawn from a list approved by the League’s Management Committee. The Discipline Chairman shall appoint one of the Appeal Panel members to act as Chairman of the Appeal Panel. None of the Panel should have been part of the original Disciplinary Panel, be connected with the Participant or any relevant opponent at the time of the alleged breach, or any Participant who might directly benefit from any disciplinary action. The Participant shall have the same rights of attendance and representation, and to call witnesses as they had before the Disciplinary Panel. 7.5. If the Participant is to have representation present at the hearing then the details of that representation must be given to the Discipline Chairman not less than 7 days before the date of the hearing. 7.6. Non-attendance at the Appeal Hearing by a Participant without good and valid reason for such non-attendance will automatically result in forfeiture of their right of appeal. 7.7. The Appeals Panel may confirm, vary or reverse the decision of the Disciplinary Panel and it shall have the power to increase the penalty and award costs of the Appeal Hearing and forfeit the whole or part of the deposit (in reaching its decision, the Appeal Panel may have regard to whether the right of appeal was exercised in good faith and upon reasonable grounds). Decisions of the Appeal Panel shall be by majority vote; where necessary, the Chairman shall have a casting vote. 7.8. The decision of the Appeals Panel shall be final and binding.

8.

8.1. 8.2.

Non Payment of Fines

Any fine levied must be paid to the treasurer of the League within 28 days of the club being notified of such fine. Any fines still outstanding at the end of that 28 day period shall be increased by 100% of the original fine. At the end of that period the secretary or chairman of the offending club shall be notified to the effect that the fine is outstanding and given a reminder that if after a further period of 14 days from that reminder, the fine is still outstanding, a deduction of five points shall be made in regard to the team from which the fine arose (or, if the fine does not arise from a particular team, the club’s first team).

9.5

Mutual Recognition of Penalties

The League and clubs shall mutually recognise and give full effect to any penalty imposed by the Disciplinary and Appeal Panels of the Leagues (as defined at paragraph 1.1). The League and clubs shall recognise and give effect to penalties imposed pursuant to any disciplinary or relevant regulations of all competitions under the auspices of County Cricket Boards, as defined and listed in the ECB’s Articles of Association from time-to- time, and any other competitions as directed by the ECB from time-to-time (the Recognised Competitions). The League and clubs shall mutually recognise and give full effect to any disciplinary penalty imposed by ECB recognised competitions. For the purposes of this paragraph 9, a Participant may not play in matches under the auspices of the League whilst serving a suspension given by any other of the Leagues or a Recognised Competition. For the avoidance of doubt, in the event any other of the Leagues or a Recognised Competition suspends a player for a consecutive number of matches or for a period of time, that player may not play in any matches under the auspices of the League until that suspension has been served. In order to give effect to the mutual recognition of penalties between the Leagues and Recognised Competitions, the League may report and receive information in regard to penalties imposed upon Participants pursuant to the Disciplinary Regulations to and from the ECB and Recognised Competitions. Information will be shared about the penalties imposed on Participants on a ‘needto-know’ basis with such Participants and other persons/bodies as are necessary to give effect to the penalty.

10. Data Protection Consent

Each Participant shall be deemed to have agreed, for the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998 and otherwise, that their personal data may be processed and disclosed in accordance with, and for the purposes of the implementation of, the Disciplinary Regulations.

11. Confidentiality

11.1 All disciplinary proceedings which take place under the Disciplinary Regulations shall be confidential and shall take place in private. 11.2 The Leagues and the ECB shall have the right to publish any written decision of a Disciplinary Panel or Appeal Panel, including (but not necessarily limited to) publication on their websites, and Participants shall be deemed to have consented to such publication.

Appendix 1 – Breaches of Discipline

Certain conduct, whether on or off the field of play of play, amounting to a breach of the Laws of Cricket and/or the Spirit of Cricket has been categorised into 4 levels which are set out below. The conduct and the categories listed are not, and are not intended to be, identical to those specified in Law 42. Law 42 sets out the standards of player behaviour and sanctions to be applied by the umpires during the match. These Disciplinary Regulations set out a wider framework against which conduct will be assessed and sanctions imposed post-match:Level 1 a) time wasting by either the fielding side or the batting side b) abuse of the cricket ground, equipment or fixtures c) showing dissent at an umpire’s decision by word or action d) using language that is obscene, offensive or insulting and or the making of an obscene gesture e) excessive appealing Level 2 a) showing serious dissent at an umpire’s decision by word or action b) inappropriate and deliberate physical contact between players in the course of play c) charging or advancing towards an umpire in an aggressive manner when appealing d) deliberate and malicious distraction or obstruction on the field of play, regardless as to whether such conduct is deemed to be fair under law 42.5 e) throwing the ball at or near a player, umpire or official in an inappropriate and dangerous manner 39


40

f) using language or gesture that is obscene or of a serious insulting nature to another player, umpire, team official or spectator g) changing the condition of the ball other than as permitted by Law 42.3 h) the bowling of fast short pitched balls that result in the bowler being disallowed from bowling further in that innings i) causing avoidable damage to the pitch contrary to Laws 42.13 and/or Law 42.14 that results in a five run penalty being awarded Level 3 a) intimidating an umpire b) threatening to assault another player, team official or spectator c) using language or gesture that offend, insult, humiliate, intimidate, threaten, disparage or vilify another person on the basis of that person’s (or that person’s perceived) age, race, religion, sexual orientation, colour, descent or national or ethnic origin d) the deliberate bowling of any high full-pitched ball contrary to Law 42.8 Level 4 a) threatening an umpire b) physical assault of another player, umpire, official or spectator c) any act of violence on the field of play d) using language or gestures that seriously offend, insult, humiliate, intimidate, threaten, disparage or vilify another person on the basis of that person’s (or that person’s perceived) age, race, religion, sexual orientation, colour, descent or national or ethnic origin The conduct listed in Level 1 to Level 4 above cannot be considered to be exhaustive. Where any alleged breach falls outside the conduct above, whether on or off the field, the Discipline Chairman shall determine the appropriate Level with reference to the following factors: • the level of harm caused (or potentially caused) to the interests or reputation of the League(s) or the game of cricket in general; • whether any alleged language used or gesture made may offend, insult, humiliate, intimidate, threaten, disparage or vilify another person on the basis of that person’s (or that person’s perceived) age, race, religion, sexual orientation, colour, descent or national or ethnic origin; • whether it is alleged that any conduct was intended to cause physical harm to another person, or such harm was reasonably foreseeable; • whether it is alleged that any conduct was intended to cause distress to another person, or such distress was reasonably foreseeable; • whether it is alleged that any behaviour caused harm to a child, or such harm was reasonably foreseeable; • the level of harm/distress the alleged conduct caused (or may have caused) to another person; • whether it is alleged that any conduct was criminal or otherwise unlawful; and • any other factor relevant to the particular circumstances of the alleged conduct. In determining the appropriate level, it is again to be remembered that the core aim of the Disciplinary Regulations is to maintain the highest standards of behaviour and conduct in the game of cricket. The Level determined for an alleged breach of the Code of Conduct should be proportionate to achieve that core aim.

Social media

For the avoidance of doubt, any postings online and/or on social media (Twitter, Facebook or similar/equivalent platforms) also fall to be determined in accordance with the factors above. In relation to such cases, it should be noted: 1. Participants are to be considered responsible for any posting(s) on their social media account(s) which are caught by the factors detailed above (the fact that a posting may have been made by someone else in the Participant’s name will not necessarily prevent disciplinary action being taken); 2. Disciplinary action may result from repeating comments made on social media by others (e.g.‘retweeting’) which are caught by the factors detailed above; and 3. The deleting of any inappropriate content, whilst advisable, does not of itself prevent disciplinary action being taken.

CCC Sovereign Trophy 2017

The League representative team played two rounds in the 2017 competition. In the second game we came up against a very good side from the Caribbean Cup Competition. We had a very friendly game against a side rather better than us. The CCC had changed the rules to allow overseas players to play in the competition for 2017 and our view is that this is against the spirit of the competition. We wrote to the CCC to express our opinion and let them know we would not be entering for 2018. In the event, they changed the rules back but did not inform us until after the deadline for entry!

Diary of the Season 2017 Week 1. 6 May.

Such a cold day. My season started as the umpire who had to stand at both ends in a Hatfield park. The hosts were 10-4 after 6 overs chasing 299 so maybe it could soon be over soon, as the temperature was dropping further. Unfortunately (for me) the home side opted for batting practice and the last wicket didn’t fall until the 50th over! LBW. The 70 year-old batsman, Alan, was plumb and gave me a genuine thumbs up as he walked off. Another season is underway. This was 19 rungs below the top flight but let’s hope every player behaves like Alan, until September. This review, however, is not about my season but is my attempt to follow in the magnificent footsteps of Richard White and Jack Sheldon who spent countless hours analyzing the tables and events, compiling annual reviews continuously since 1998, when Richard produced the first one - just a single page. Thank you, Richard & Jack. Our endless thanks should also go Mike Wood who makes sure we all know the results within hours. Every week, for four months. This speed of service has been made possible by the use of technology and systems which Mike himself has introduced. As we celebrate 50 years of league cricket, in this handbook, it is worth reflecting that Mike has been sacrificing his Saturday nights to bring us the results for 30 of those 50 years. The 2017 season brought another major advance as the new web site went live and we entered the world of apps, to record the results. This also meant a major challenge, as captains tried to cope with the new reporting requirements. Following publication of the first set of results, Mike told me: “Most clubs have been great, but one or two were stressed and a bit rude!” I ponder whether some people (probably not reading this) realise this is our recreation, not a multi-billion pound business, such as football’s Premier league. Back to the cricket. My approach, different to Richard and Jack (just to be different!) involves looking at events on a week-by-week basis, building to the climax of the final week-end and, for the elite, the play-offs. Obviously I will be putting considerable focus on the top end of our structure, which is where champions are made but I hope I can unearth a few gems from matches in the lower reaches. With more than 130 matches every week, within 27 divisions, there should be plenty of opportunity. Looking at the first week’s results, last season’s Premier Division play-of finalists, Radlett & Welwyn Garden City, both started with impressive wins. I notice that the Hon. Sec’s club, Hoddesdon, made a storming start with wins for all four teams. The results sheet for the first set of limited overs matches included some exciting games. For example in 5B where Mill Hill Village scored 281 and held off a great chase by Holtwhites Trinibis II who fell two runs short with nine wickets down; similarly in 7B where in a match of 522 runs, Potters Bar III beat Rickmansworth II by just two runs, both teams using up all of their 50 overs; while in 8A, in a lower scoring game but equally close, Harpenden IV scored 151-9 but Hertford IV chased well while losing wickets and reached their target with nine wickets down and just two balls to spare. Angus Kildare held the innings together, carrying his bat for 61*. The season underway with the dog walkers out at Mill Hill Village

85


In the regional divisions, there must have been similar nail biting among the players of Parkfield & Headstone II, Potters Bar IV and newcomers West Herts VI, who all got over the line with nine wickets down. We also started the season with a record breaking performance. Eversholt II in 6B put 10-man Abbots Langley II to the sword to the tune of 433-1. (Darren Ward 218*, Alan Garratt 134* - retired). Two bowlers went for over 100 runs off their 10 overs. In reply, the demoralised Abbots batsmen had no response and only one reached double figures. Eversholt thus recorded the highest ever league score in any division by a team batting first and also achieved the highest ever margin of victory - 379 runs, beating the previous record by 19.

Lewis Hodgins, Hemel Hempstead Town

Competing with Darren for the individual performance of the day was Hemel’s Lewis Hodgins who wrapped up Kings Langley’s innings with a hat-trick of sorts, taking the last three wickets in two overs, all caught and bowled. Earlier in the div. 1 match he had scored 42. His captain, Nick Hodgins, must have been proud as well as delighted. Well done son.

The first league tables were pretty meaningless but did contain a new feature, a bonus 5 points for every team if their club had sent a representative to the pre-season captains’ meeting. In fact only one club failed to attend and, as we would see later, it made a difference to one of their teams which had a good season and finished second but with those five extra points could have taken the champions pennant. Footnote, in the interests of brevity, some club names will be abbreviated in this review from hereon, eg Luton Town & Indians will be referred to just as Luton. With apologies to the purists and to those abbreviated clubs for any annoyance caused.

Week 2. 13 May A chance for teams to test whether the previous week’s results suggested a big season ahead, or the portent for a long and difficult campaign. Reigning Premier division champions, Welwyn GC, made a clear statement with their eight wickets victory. At the other extreme, Luton must have feared the worst after being bowled out for 102, barely an improvement on the previous week’s 99. There were few stand-out results elsewhere but division 7B offered two, in different ways. Rickmansworth II must have been preparing for another defeat, having been dismissed for 93 but they ran out winners against Baldock II by 24 runs. Was it a ’sporting’ wicket? In complete contrast, the division produced one of the highest scoring competitive matches of the day with Dunstable III outscoring Stevenage III who had notched up 267-7. In terms of runs, that was bettered in 3B by Langleybury II who overhauled Potters Bar II’s 273-7 but even that aggregate was beaten in 9A, by one run, in a very different type of match. Potten End had rattled up 477-4, before bowling out 9-man Bayford & Hertford II for 72! For Potten, Michael Gurney (159*) and Azeem Akhtar (129), led the way. Potten thus broke a record which had stood for just one week, eclipsing Eversholt II’s opening day salvo. That, in turn, had broken a record which had stood for less than a year, when 419-4 had been amassed by….Potten End. A footnote provided by Bayford is that Potten’s score of 477 was, co-incidentally, the total aggregate age of the under-strength Bayford team! Their average age of 53 might also be a league record! 86


Week 3. 20 May The first wet Saturday of the season. Many matches didn’t get started and others soon succumbed to the encroaching rain. The Duckworth-Lewis-Stern method was used in two matches. In the Premier division, DLS allowed Totteridge Milhillians to become the only team to boast a 100% record after just three weeks; whereas in a much closer game in the Championship division, Sawbridgeworth’s 113-8 off 42.2 overs, batting second, was just enough to beat Langleybury’s 117 all out. Elsewhere there were a couple of close encounters. In 4A, a match reduced to 32 overs each, Parkfield & Headstone finished two runs short of Watford Town’s total of 133; then in 7B St Margaretsbury had just one wicket in hand when they passed the Stevenage III total of 133. Not a week that will remain long in the memory.

Week 4. 27 May Totteridge Milhillians were not celebrating their 100% record in the top division for long. North Mymms posted 272-9 and bowled out the league leaders for 212, Rhys Wynne taking 5-32. As one of three teams on 105 points, Welwyn GC went joint top. Close results abounded elsewhere, such as in 2B, where Welwyn GC II compiled 266-7 but were overhauled by Allenburys & CH, who lost seven wickets but reached their target off the first ball of the last over. Most of the top order contributed what was a fairly comfortable run chase, led by Andrew Szemiako with 73 off 53 balls. And games didn’t get any closer than the visit of Southgate Compton II to Old Elizabethans III. The visitors reached 180-6 in their allotted overs, which was almost enough but the hosts matched the score, losing eight wickets en route. Elsewhere, starting in 4B, Hoddesdon II only lost three wickets in reaching 193 and it was almost enough as they took nine of Northampton Exiles wickets but Exiles crept over the line and took the 30 points, with overs to spare. Reed III couldn’t quite match that, having been set a target of 205 by Bayford & Hertford II in their 9A match. Reed fell just four runs short, losing their last wicket in the 50th over. In division 10A, two of the three teams with 100% records faced each other and recorded one of the highest scoring matches of the season. However, the Boxmoor II score of 265-6, although excellent, was nowhere near enough when chasing Old Albanian III’s 321-8. It may have been a chastening day for Boxmoor as the club’s 1st XI, in 6B, was put to the sword by Frogmore, who scored 372-5 with centuries for Steven Moules (114) and Jack Massey played some better shots on his way to captain Jack Massey (106) plus 89 from 706 runs for Frogmore during 2017 50 balls from Chris Anstey.

Week 5. 3 June We reached the first milestone of the season, the last round of limited overs matches, (except the regional divisions, which played 40 overs per side throughout the season). In a league of 287 teams, the tables showed just 12 with 100% winning records by the end of the day. A few others could point out that the previous week’s rain prevented them from 87


recording the perfect start. In the Premier division, Welwyn GC were one of those unlucky teams and after five games they were tied on 135 points with Totteridge Milhillians. At the opposite end of the league, in division C west, various circumstances meant Hatch End II had bizarrely played only one match by this stage! There were a couple of tight finishes in division 1, led by Harpenden II who were nine wickets down and had only three balls to spare when they overhauled the Stevenage total of 191. Gary Brown carried his bat for Stevenage with 106*, whereas, in contrast, Harpenden’s highest scorer reached only 29. Leverstock Green also had to thank their last pair and mainly no. 6 Sam Revel who finished 63* for getting them over the line. They had chased Northwood’s 214 and eventually had the relative luxury of 10 balls to spare. The highest successful run chase came in 2B where Eversholt passed Welwyn GC II’s score of 236-8, in the 48th over. For Eversholt, Ryan Harding’s unbeaten 112 was central to their victory after Andrew Macmillan had taken 5 for 50. A tighter finish came in division C East where Hoddesdon IV had only one wicket and two balls left, when they overtook Hatfield Hyde III’s 199-7. Victory looked a long way off when three of Hoddesdon’s first four batsmen recorded ducks but Tom Grover with 68 steadied the ship before no. 8 Peter Draisey, with 40, set up the final push. In 6B, Frogmore welcomed back Ryan Carey for his only appearance of the season, after having moved north. He reminded everyone of his quality with a hat trick against Abbots Langley II, setting up a win by six wickets.

Week 6. 10 June Would the first round of timed matches make a difference, slightly reducing the opportunities for teams which rely on their powerful batting line-up? Perhaps, in a few cases, as four of the 12 teams with 100% records couldn’t maintain their success. In the Premier division, however, powerful batting seemed the order of the day as in all five matches it was the teams which batted 2nd which came out on top. Leading the way, in terms of runs, was the match between the top two in which Totteridge Milhillians scored an impressive 260-9 but were passed by Welwyn GC in the 52nd over, for the loss of only five wickets. Owais Shah, with 88* off 84 balls and Daniel Blacktopp, with 68, led the charge. Perhaps the standout performance was by Radlett, who successfully chased the score Ton Jenkins, Radlett of 230 set by Letchworth GC and didn’t lose a wicket in the process. William Bates with 96* had anchored the Letchwoth innings, with Kurtlyn Mannikam taking 5 for 48 but Radlett’s openers stole the show. Fraser Crawford scored 109* off 106 balls and Tom Jenkins 114* off 128 balls. Harpenden almost matched this, losing just one wicket in pursuit of the Stortford total of 217, Gregg Cooper 94*, Hemish Ilangaratne 41 and Ben Clements 79* taking the Fraser Crawford, Radlett plaudits.

88


Similar feats were achieved in the Championship division, where coincidentally all five matches were also won by the teams batting 2nd. Among these, Langleybury scored 261-2 (in only 36 overs) to beat Botany Bay and Reed amassed 249-6 to defeat Hoddesdon with overs to spare. In contrast, Chorleywood had lasted only 18 overs when bowled out for 48 by table-topping West Herts, with Will Jones taking 7 for 22. The Stags openers were untroubled in reaching their target. Most eye-catching among the close results elsewhere was in div 4B where Northwood Town scored 197 (Kyle Lawrence 90*) and Broxbourne II finished on 197-9 when the overs ran out, with Niall Robinson almost completing the job single-handedly, carrying his bat for 95* while watching the last six batsmen each manage only single figure scores. Almost a similar scenario in 3A where Southgate Compton chased Hertford II’s 230-7 and fell just short, on 229-9. Wheathampstead’s top two teams were in the news, for different reasons, with both weakened by the absence of half of their regular 1st teamers. In 3B, the 1st XI had just one recognised regular batsman, David Corran, who held the innings together against Sawbridgeworth, scoring 125*. It was his maiden century. Defending 222-9, George Jarvis stepped up with 7-26 (his first five wicket haul) but the last Sawbo pair survived seven overs and a dropped catch, to earn a draw. Meanwhile, Wheathampstead 2nds, in 7B, were on the receiving end of a remarkable performance when Stevenage III bowler, Manoj Kumar, took a hat trick with the last three balls of his first over. In his next over his first two balls brought two more wickets. So, five wickets in five balls, setting up a victory by 10 wickets. It was a day for remarkable bowling performances, as in 9A Potten End’s Michael Gurney returned the amazing figures of 9 for 3, as Shenley III were bowled out for 32. In 10B there was an odd spectacle in the match between the Manoj Kumar took 5 in 5 for Stevenage 3rd XIs of hosts Watford Town and Rickmansworth. During the tea interval, the pitch, which is out of sight of the main pavilion, was scuffed up on a full length in front of one of the wickets, by persons unknown. In response I would like to think that common sense overruled the laws and the captains agreed to continue the game to a finish by bowling just from one end. The visitors won by more than 100 runs, so perhaps adapted more easily to the unusual circumstances. Sadly, week six saw the first withdrawals of the season, with Potters Bar V and Kings Langley IV pulling out of their respective regional divisions.

Week 7. 17 June On what was probably the hottest match day of the season, there was no shortage of tight finishes, mostly in the top half of the league structure. Leading the way was Radlett’s match at Bishop’s Stortford where the visitors did the hard work by bowling out Stortford for the relatively meagre total of 164 (Randeep Sanghera 5-30). In reply, from the apparent comfort of 78-3, Radlett’s reply subsided to 155-9 and when the experienced Kabir Toor was snared a few overs later, the visitors had lost by just one run. Travis Hussain, led the Stortford bowling attack with 5-38. At the top of the Premier division, Welwyn GC’s eight wicket victory over Luton kept them top and the gap widened ahead of the chasing pack as 2nd and 3rd placed teams North Mymms and Totteridge Milhillians both drew, with the latter hanging on at 202-9, a long way short of Letchworth GC’s challenging total of 300-5. 89


Other matches which caught the eye included Harpenden II’s three wicket victory over Broxbourne in division 1. Chasing the visitors’ total of 252-6 (George Davis 125), Harpenden squeezed home for the loss of seven wickets with just one ball to spare. Bryn Luffman’s little cameo of 17* off eight balls, in the last two overs, was decisive. An even tighter finish came in Dunstable II’s visit to Chipperfield where the hosts made the most of the conditions by scoring 290-7 off their 53 overs. After a blistering 122 from Mark Smith, and 64* from Adam Lewis, it all came down to the last ball of the game, with six runs needed to win. Skipper Sam Marshall was facing and promptly launched the ball over long on for six! Just as tight, going to the end of the 100th over, was the draw in 6A between Bovingdon (194 all out off 51 overs) and Old Camdenians (194-9 off 49 overs). Chipperfield Clarendon’s defeat in 4A was their first of the season, one of six clubs to lose their 100% records, including West Herts at the top of the Championship division. West Herts probably felt their record would remain intact when they reduced Reed to 124-7 but the tail wagged and the eventual target of 199 proved too big for the visiting Stags who subsided to 132 all out. In the regional division B west, the youth policy of Redbourn IV was rewarded when U13 player Ben Emmins bowled the final over, with Berkhamsted IV requiring only five runs to win. The youngster held his nerve and conceded just four runs and the match was tied.

Week 8. 24 June The sun continued to shine on the run makers, with Totteridge Milhillians leading the way with a daunting total of 405-3 against Radlett, in the Premier division. That’s the fourth highest score ever by a team batting first, behind the Eversholt and Potten End efforts mentioned above (but of course TM had the benefit of 60 overs). The early retirement of Totteridge opener Justin Le Fort proved only a minor setback as Jonathan Miles took over, scoring 202 not out from 178 deliveries including 21 fours and nine sixes, the 2nd highest score ever in the Premier division. It wasn’t enough for victory, however, as Radlett hung on at 231-9 when stumps were drawn. Welwyn GC maintained their comfortable lead in the Premier division but were taken all the way by lowly Hertford who scored an impressive 279-6 in their 60 overs (William Ray 118) and had Welwyn eight wickets down when they reached their target in the 53rd over. Welwyn had been wobbling after losing four wickets for 14 runs in mid innings but 50 from no. 8 Shay Emerton made sure the earlier work of Daniel Blacktopp (92) and Jamie Southgate (81) wasn’t wasted. A Radlett team was also involved in the match with the highest aggregate score of the day. That came in 8B where table toppers Radlett IV took on 3rd place Greenwood Park and having been inserted, compiled 353-5 declared in 49 overs, with veteran Nick Fielden scoring 140. Greenwood took on the challenge but lost wickets regularly and still had 10 overs left when they finally succumbed for 199. Close results elsewhere included Hatfield Hyde squeezing home by one wicket with two balls to spare against Stevenage II and St Albans III chasing the Harpenden IV score of 190 and getting home with one wicket and one ball to spare. In 5A the Old Cholmeleians score of 133 proved just enough to beat Old Haberdashers whose careful reply took more than 47 overs but they still fell short, by just two runs. On a day where batsmen prospered, let’s celebrate the top bowling performance, which came in 10B. Idris Hussain took 8 for 12 for Harpenden V against Hertingfordbury II. 90


Week 9. 1 July We reached the halfway point of the season - a good time to take stock. At the top of the Premier division Welwyn GC had opened up a 52 points gap over North Mymms, with Radlett a further 16 points behind, although their cause was helped by the fact they became the only winners among the leading pack today, with most of the rest engaged in uninspiring draws. At the foot of the table, Luton, with just 23 points, were already well adrift of 9th place Hertford. A gap was also opening at the top of the Championship division, where West Herts had two wins and 42 points more than Hoddesdon, with Reed and Dunstable just behind. Welwyn GC’s draw in the Premier meant the end of their 100% record and with St Albans West Indian and Harpenden III suffering their first reverses, it meant only three teams could boast ‘played 9, won 9’ records. They were Old Albanian III in 10A, Harpenden V in 10B, and Parkfield & Headstone II in regional A west. West Herts V were also running at 100% but had played and won eight games plus one concession. A further five clubs remained unbeaten, with only rained off matches preventing Old Haberdashers II and newcomers Old Eastcotians being listed among the 100% elite teams. With the benefit of hindsight, I can tell you that in the 27 divisions, only five clubs who were top of their divisions at this half-way stage, failed to go on and win their respective titles. On the field today, the big match was probably in 6B where top dogs Frogmore, eight wins out of eight, took on 2nd place Eversholt II, seven wins and one ‘no result’. The outcome was very close, with hosts Eversholt winning the toss and batting first, scoring 226-7 off their 53 overs but failing to bowl out Frogmore, who held on at 205-9. There was an unwanted entry into the record books in 10B, where Old Elizabethans III were bowled out for just 17 by Northwood III. This is the fourth lowest total ever by a team batting second, in any division, since the League was formed in 1994. The star turn of the day was Chorleywood’s Ryan Evans, in the Championship division. In an unbroken spell he found the outside edge at will, including five catches for keeper Scott Aspinall. Ryan had taken all eight wickets when he had Reed’s number 10 dropped at slip and the pair put on 61. Ryan later removed the number nine and a rare feat beckoned. It was not to be. His friend Jeremy Hinds bowled just three balls and took the last wicket! Ryan finished with 9 for 46.

Week 10. 8 July The reverse fixtures from the opening day of the season and another milestone week of sorts, as the teams in the main (non-regional) divisions completed their 5th timed match, following their five limited overs games.

A comparison of the two sets of tables showed that the majority of teams who were at or near the top, or foot of their division, after the limited overs matches finished on 3rd June, hadn’t moved much, five weeks later. There were a number of teams, however, which enjoyed or suffered different fortunes in the timed matches and therefore made significant moves. The highest division seeing these movements was 2A where Stortford II won five out of five timed matches, taking them top. 91


Similar achievements elsewhere saw Totteridge M II climb from 8th to 3rd, in 2B; Hatfield Hyde went from 8th to 2nd in 4A; and 5B where Clifton went top, having been 8th after the limited overs games and were tracked by Hitchin II who won four out of five, moving up to 2nd from 7th. Similarly, in 9B, Rebourn III’s clean sweep of timed matches sent them top, while Abbots III’s four victories took them off the bottom to mid-table. Among teams going the other way, the club which seemed to suffer most was St Margaretsbury, whose 1st XI won just one match, slipping from the top of 2B to 5th, while in 7B the club’s 2nd XI dropped four places, from 2nd, after failing to win any of their timed matches. Failure to win any matches also cost Holtwhites and Watford Town II, both slipping from comfortable positions into the relegation zones, in divs. 2A and 4A respectively. The competitive action on the field this day saw a clash of the top two in the Premier division, with Welwyn GC strengthening their position further after a six wickets win over North Mymms, chasing down 244-8 in 53 overs (Daniel Blacktopp 124). Radlett took Mymms’ 2nd place, following an easy win over Hertford. In the Championship division, a second defeat of the season for West Herts (losing to 9th placed Ampthill) raised the tension. The real story here was the 1st XI debut for West Herts of 14 year-old Tom McCormick. Tom took 3 for 16 in his six overs at the top of the innings and then in pursuit of 171 to win, scored 72*, but in vain. Big news in the Championship division was at the foot of that table. Botany Bay were already losing touch in 10th place with 63 points but after picking up just one point against 2nd placed Hoddesdon, later found themselves 100 points behind the 8th placed team, as the result of a big fine. The deduction of 50 points was imposed for ‘multiple registration violations’ dating back to the first match of the season.

No shortage of excitement in matches elsewhere; in no particular order: Div. 3B, Hertford II chased and overtook the Met Police total of 239 with only 4 balls remaining. Also with two balls remaining but eight wickets down, Eversholt overhauled Abbots Langley II’s excellent 248-7 in 6B Great Gaddesden had the comfort of five balls to go when overtaking Luton IV’s 176 but had lost nine wickets when they sneaked home in the 8A clash. A victory for the team batting first in the highest scoring game came in 9B where Preston III scored 215-6 and saw Old Minchendenians get within reach of victory, when Iain Williamson took four late wickets before there was a final run out on 214, for a one run win. Talking of high scores, Aldenham scored 322-4 (Charlie Munroe 170 from 110 balls; a career best and second highest score in the club’s history) then bowled out Chorleywood II for 256. Another run feast, worthy of mention was the regional div. C east match (40 overs per side) where unbeaten Old Eastcotians needed only 29 overs to score the 243 runs to beat Parkfield III’s 242-7. Sadly, there was another withdrawal from the League this Charlie Munroe batting for Aldenham week. Reed IV in the regional div. B east. 92


Week 11. 15 July Previously unbeaten Welwyn GC lost! And how. The Premier division leaders were 68 points ahead when they went to Potters Bar who were languishing in 8th place. In a rain affected game Welwyn had to chase the hosts’ 263-9 (Steve Gale 90) but were all out within 27 overs for just 93. Destroyer in chief was 20 year old James Ilott, son of Mark, ex-England and Essex and a familiar surname to Herts League players who came up against his grandfather (John) and uncle (Nigel) in their pomp at Watford Town! James finished with figures of 7 for 31 off 13 overs.

The Premier division also produced what we hope is a never-tobe-repeated abandonment, during Letchworth GC’s visit to North Mymms. The hosts were doing quite well, having scored 208-9 in 45 overs, and had Letchworth GC 82-5 in the 29th over. It was then that Mymms player Dan Millard, fielding at short leg, was hit TWICE within a few balls. The first was heading for his throat but he managed to put a hand in the way to take some of the impact. More seriously, he was then hit on the head by a full-blooded sweep shot – the ball still nearly reaching the boundary rope. Not that Dan knew that as he was laid out cold and the ambulance had to be called. Fortunately he had been wearing a helmet. Both teams were shaken by the events and the match was rightly abandoned. Dan was hospitalised for a few hours but soon recovered and later paid tribute to his Mymms team-mates, the Letchworth players and the paramedics, all of whom provided great support. Dan was playing again within weeks, however, and says he would be happy to field at short leg in the future, if required. Brave man.

As we digested the results that night, wondering why the match had been abandoned and fearing the worst, other results paled into insignificance. At the time, perhaps only those involved could appreciate the close matches that had taken place. For example in div. 1 where Broxbourne matched Northwood’s 220 in the last over. Match drawn. As was the 8A result where Hertford IV, even with four wickets in hand, fell one run short of Great Gaddesden’s 226-9 when the overs ran out. But a tie in 4A where Stevenage II scored 193-6 (Adil Zargar 91), then took the last Parkfield wicket off the 5th ball of the last over, with two run outs and three ducks among the last four batsmen. Earlier Martin Nevill had taken 5 for 57. Three teams also forfeited proud records. London Colney hadn’t lost all season in 6A but went down by 38 runs to 9th placed Cockfosters II. There was a similar shock result in 6B, with the first defeat for Eversholt II, to another 9th placed team, Hatfield & Crusaders II, by 93 runs. One notable draw, in 10A, meant the end of Old Albanians III’s 100% record. The individual stand-out achievement of the day came in the Championship division, where Flitwick’s Khizer Manzoor dominated the home derby against Ampthill Town, taking 9 for 28.

Week 12. 22 July It rained. It poured. And yet six games were somehow completed. Five out of the six were in the regional divisions. Good pitch covers are clearly not the only answer.

Week 13. 29 July It rained again! This time 19 matches reached a conclusion; 11 in the main divisions; the remainder in the regional divisions. Virtually all matches started on time but then the rain came in. Of those which managed to finish, low scores in the first innings became the common factor. Followed in many cases by a quick run chase to beat the conditions. St Albans West Indian took the prize here, requiring just 9.2 overs to overhaul the Sawbridgeworth II total of 102.

A lot of rain fell in July!

Among the soggy abandonments, there was one notable performance. St Albans III included 12 year old Harry Seagrave, with clearance from his county coach. In the division 8A fixture against Hertford IV, batting at no. 5, Harry top scored with 61 in a total of 202. One to watch for in the future. One other ‘result’ of note was in regional div. B west. Bushey IV v Redbourn IV was recorded as ‘void’. The match was not played as a result of gypsies camping on the Bushey pitch. Sadly, it was not to be an isolated occurrence.

Week 14. 5 August The last round of timed matches. Unfortunately, the rain of the last two weeks had not disappeared completely and a number of matches suffered. Of these, three were in the Premier division but the rain couldn’t save leaders Welwyn GC, who for the second time were bowled out for under 100. This time to Radlett. All out for 73 and defeated by 143 runs. It was a match which swung dramatically, with Radlett collapsing from 201-3 to 220 all out (Simon Bridgewater 6 for 18 from five overs and finishing off the innings with a hat trick) but only two of Welwyn’s batsmen reached double figures and the end was swift. Totteridge Milhillians also won, losing only three wickets chasing Potters Bar’s 232-8, thanks mainly to Ben Howgego (130*) and Jonathan Miles (86) who put on an opening stand of 193. The top of the league now had a more competitive look as Totteridge had closed to within 11 points of Welwyn GC, compared to a gap of 72 points a month earlier, with the top two set to meet a week later. Radlett, a further 21 points behind, were also still in contention. At the foot of the table, the first issue of the season was virtually resolved. Even with four games to play, Luton’s 63 points meant they were 134 points adrift of the 8th placed club, and 67 behind 9th place Hertford, meaning almost certain relegation, unless a miracle and the Championship play-off could save them. In the Championship, faltering displays by West Herts, coupled with the rain in previous weeks, meant a change at the top. In the previous week Reed had been the only team to play in this division and recorded a win. Now they capitalized with another win, as did Hoddesdon, while West Herts were going down to Flitwick by six wickets and thus moved down to 3rd, after leading the table since 20 May. 94


St Margaretsbury’s seemingly routine 41 runs win over Bushey in 2B was far from it, thanks to Nick Sheffield who took four wickets in four balls, allowing the ‘bury to defend a score of 128. Nick's final figures were 6-2-14-6.

Over the period of nine timed matches in the main divisions, the big movers and shakers appeared to be in the middle reaches of the league. In 5B for example, where Flamstead’s six recent victories had taken them from 6th place to the top spot. In complete contrast, in the same division, Shenley Village II’s form had seen them drop from 1st to 8th. There were similar contrasting movements in 8A; Datchworth II moving up from 7th to 2nd, while Hertford IV’s lack of victories meant a fall from 3rd to 8th. Above all, the form team seem to have been Mil Hill Village II in 9A. Six wins moved them up from the relegation place of 9th, to the 2nd promotion slot. That meant promotion was not yet assured for run-away leaders Potten End, 94 points ahead, the biggest lead in any division.

Week 15. 12 August For the final run-in, limited overs cricket returned and the weather improved. In the Premier division, the battle of the top two went the way of Welwyn GC, bouncing back from the previous week’s stumble with a convincing win by seven wickets. The team’s all-round strength was on display as the bowlers took all 10 Totteridge Milhillians wickets inside 50 overs, restricting the visitors to the moderate total of 177. WGC’s early batsmen then capitalised, reaching their target in the 36th over. Totteridge M remained 2nd, while Radlett kept up the pressure on the leaders with another win, as did Harpenden and North Mymms, back in 4th and 5th places respectively and it looked as though these five clubs would be competing for the four play-off places. One other result of note. Luton won for the first time, beating Potters Bar by 37 runs, providing a glimpse of the miracle they needed by narrowing the gap to Hertford to 42 points. It would be a tall order, however, with fixtures against Welwyn GC and Radlett yet to come for the Wardown Park team. The Premier was not the only top division where the top two were facing each other. In the Championship, Reed had to defend their newly acquired top slot against free-scoring Hoddesdon and it was the Lowfield team which triumphed, after bowling out Reed for 143. Reed fought back and took six wickets but the new leaders crossed the finishing line with more than three overs to spare, thanks largely to Sam Davies, whose 56* was the highest score on either side. West Herts also bounced back, meaning just 12 points separated the top three teams. At the foot of the table, Botany Bay’s relegation was also confirmed. With three matches still to play, the points gaps in other divisions meant a number of promotion and relegation places were decided. Those celebrating promotion included Northchurch in 3A, 95


Frogmore in 6B and Harpenden in 10B, while in 9A, Potten End not only celebrated promotion for the second successive year but with a gap of 112 points to the 2nd placed team, they were also certain of winning the divisional champions trophy. Relegation issues also settled included Hemel III in 5B, Broxbourne III in 7B, Kings Langley III in 9B and Flamstead II in 10B. As for the day’s matches, there were two results worthy of commendation. In 5A, Bentley Heath started the day just five points above the relegation zone but lost only one wicket in scoring 190 to defeat mid-table Preston II. Meanwhile, 7A claimed the highest run chase in the new round of limited overs matches. The glory went to Berkhamsted II, with 235-6 in 49 overs, to overhaul Old Owens II. In 4A, Chipperfield Clarendon had occupied first place for most of the season but dropped to 4th after being comprehensively beaten by Cheshunt, by nine wickets, There were unusual circumstances, however, as the travelers who had caused problems at Bushey two weeks earlier, returned to the area and occupied the lovely Chipperfield Common ground. It was agreed to switch the 1st XI fixture to their 2nd ground and declare the Chipperfield III match void, in regional div. B west. The Chipperfield groundsman told me afterwards that he possibly prevented another ground occupation by calling Kings Langley to warn the club that an eviction order had been granted and the travelers would be on the move that evening, looking for a new ‘home’. The club and local residents sprang into action by parking cars around Kings Langley Common to prevent access. The modern equivalent of circling the wagons. A club which enjoyed the day was Hitchin. With a score of 135, the 1st team were looking at another defeat in 2A until Haseeb Bawja stepped in with a hat trick and a clatter of wickets saw opponents Abbots Langley subside from 67-2 to 87 all out. Meanwhile, a notable and perhaps heartbreaking batting performance for Hitchin II came from 16-year-old Ollie Howell against Kings Langley II in 5B. Ollie was bowled on the last ball of the 53rd over, for 99.

Week 16. 19 August As we entered the last three weeks of the season, the focus was on league positions, rather than performances, with many issues being settled. In the main divisions (non-regional) today’s results meant seven promotion places and nine relegation places were confirmed. There was still much to play for, however, throughout the league structure. Among those clubs already anticipating their rise into a new division in 2018, the day’s results meant only six had now realised their dream of the no. 1 position. In addition to Potten End from the previous week. These champions elect were Northchurch in 3A, Frogmore in 6B, Tewin in 7A, Pirton in 8A and Old Albanian III in 10B. In the Premier division, the previous week’s top five remained in contention for the playoffs but Welwyn GC cemented top position and opened a 42 points gap over Totteridge M who moved into 2nd as a result of Radlett’s thumping 119 runs defeat, by Stortford. A far cry from the one run margin earlier in the season and at such a crucial stage. 96

Not much movement in the Championship division, where the top two recorded victories, (2nd place West Herts beating 4th place Reed). Division 1, however, became much more interesting, not least because it was confirmed that Harpenden II, who moved from 2nd to top spot this week-end, would not be promoted wherever they finished. That’s because 2nd XIs are not eligible for promotion to our Premier divisions - and the top two divisions comprise our ‘Premier divisions’. Old Owens and Hemel had been in contention for most of the season but Leverstock Green, who had been moving up gradually, beat local rivals Hemel by five wickets and now took 3rd, which would be good enough for promotion. Old Owens slipped to 4th after going down to the bottom team, Stevenage, finishing 12 runs short, with nine wickets down, chasing 225. Elsewhere there was a clash of the top two in 10B, with challengers Hoddesdon III taking on already promoted Harpenden V. On the day this was mostly about bragging rights, which went to Hoddesdon, by four wickets, with 11 balls to spare. The quality of veteran Nick Gandon (4 for 33 and 32 runs) probably made the difference for Hoddesdon. Let’s not ignore the regional divisions at this stage, although their average points system and too many conceded matches reduced the element of excitement (except for mathematicians). After this round of matches, only a couple of divisions, (A west and B east) looked as though they would go down to the wire. This was especially the case in B east, where Old Habs II would go into the last two matches leading Totteridge M by 0.33 points!

Aldenham retained the Herts Village Trophy on 20th August beating Frogmore in the final

Those regional divisions also served up a couple of the closest matches on the day. In A west, 3rd placed Mill Hill Village III took on 4th placed Bushey III and, chasing 190, won by one wicket with just two balls to spare. No such high scoring in B west, where leaders West Herts V subsided to 45 all out. That proved enough, however, as they bowled out mid-table Chipperfield Clarendon for just 32! Interestingly, the match of 77 runs lasted a total of 45 overs!

Week 17. 26 August The penultimate week-end. A feature of this and the final week-end (with hindsight) were the number of matches which paired teams in contention for titles or promotion and in some cases, relegation. Starting, for example, in the Premier division. Totteridge Milhillians, in 2nd place, guaranteed a play-off berth by defeating 3rd place Radlett by seven wickets. Meanwhile Welwyn GC’s victory over Hertford (by 202 runs!) guaranteed their top place in the ‘regular season’ table. For the victors Adil Arif scored 128 and Owais Shah 96*. In the Championship division, 4th placed Flitwick’s defeat of 3rd placed Reed ended the latter’s interest in promotion. They had the consolation, however, of a place in the upcoming National Village Cup Final at Lord’s on 17 September. It was a relegation place at stake in 2B, where 8th placed Bushey scored 221- 3 to defeat 9th placed Allenburys & CH and guarantee another year at that level. The top two in 4A were separated by just six points at the start of the match between leaders Sandridge and chasers Dunstable II, with the positions reversed after Dunstable’s 227 was more than enough runs, as they restricted Sandridge to 165-8. Both, however could be caught in the final week of the season by the teams in 3rd & 4th positions, although those two, Parkfield & Headstone and Southgate Adelaide, would be playing each other. 97


In 5B the top three teams were involved in close matches. Leaders Holtwhites II batted first against 3rd place Hertingfordbury and had to work hard to defend their 50 overs total of 205-8 and managed to do so, winning by just five runs, taking the last wicket mid-way through the 50th over. Meanwhile the tension must have been just as great towards the end of the match between Flamstead, who started the day in 2nd place and Mill Hill Village. Flamstead probably thought they had done enough by bowling out their opponents for 86 but lost eight wickets in reaching their target in the 28th over. Just one rung below, in 6A, the top two had already confirmed their promotion when they faced each other. Leaders London Colney took the match by 12 runs but Old Albanian II scored enough points to keep alive their hopes of the title if results went their way in the final weekend. At the other end of the table, basement team Old Camdenians started the day just nine points behind 8th placed Cockfosters II but ended the day 33 points adrift, after defeat by five wickets and therefore relegated.

In the next division, 6B, it was a relegation place at stake when 8th placed Letchworth GC III visited 9th placed Chipperfield II, with the two teams separated by just one point. In a match of 496 runs it was the home team which was left in greater fear of the drop after going down by 32 runs. It was the top two in contention in 7A, although Tewin had already been crowned champions and they duly won again, by 17 runs, leaving Bushey II only just ahead of two other teams, going into their final match. One of those teams was Watton-at-Stone, whose match against 9th placed Southgate Adelaide II caught the eye. The promotion hopefuls had to chase the daunting Southgate total of 317 for victory and managed it in the final over, with four balls and two wickets to spare. Another match involving the top two came in 8B where leaders Radlett IV went down to Greenwood Park by 22 runs but accumulated enough points to guarantee their promotion. Even with their victory, Greenwood would still need nine points in their final match to go up and they also had the opportunity to overtake Radlett, if results went their way. There were also a couple of table topping clashes in the regional divisions and in spite of the negating affect of the average points system, one of the results did make a difference. That was in A west where Parkfield & H II had started in top place but slipped to 2nd after losing by 24 runs to 3rd placed Mill Hill Village III. Frogmore, who scored 341-4 to win their game, took over at the top. The other clash of the leaders was in A east where Datchworth III cemented their position in 1st place by beating nearest rivals Southgate Adelaide III. The match of the day came in this division, Baldock III and St Margaretsbury III both being bowled out for 125, the last ‘bury wicket falling off the 5th ball of the last over.

Week 18. 2 September One of the benefits of splitting the league into divisions of 10, which happened in 2015, is that more games have some relevance to the top or bottom of each table at this stage of the season. Many issues had been settled in the preceding weeks but we went into this final round of matches, in the main (non-regional) divisions, with exactly half of the promotion and relegation places still to be decided and in only four of the divisions below the Premier did we know which team would be champions. 98


In the Premier, we knew that Welwyn GC would finish on top but they went down to only their 3rd defeat of the season, to 5th placed Harpenden, which wasn’t enough, however, for Harpenden to break into the top four who would compete in the play-offs. The Harpenden victory was largely down to Gregg Cooper who carried his bat for 76*. The Championship division was particularly competitive and a win for West Herts and defeat for Hoddesdon meant the senior team from last season’s Club of the Year could celebrate a second successive promotion and a return to the top flight. Their final match wasn’t plain sailing, however, especially when they stood at 119-5 in pursuit of Dunstable’s testing target of 227. It was Ian Gurney who made the difference. Fresh from his bowling return of 4-51, he hit a run-aball 53 to see his side home. Hoddesdon remained 2nd and would go into the play-off against Hertford, for the final place in next season’s Premier division. Division 1 had an even more interesting scenario before the final matches. We knew that topplaced Harpenden II were out of the equation, leaving three clubs to compete for two promotion places. Hemel, in 4th, were depending on other results as well as needing to win, to stand any chance and the miracle duly happened. Kings Langley, who had languished in the bottom two for most of the season, completed their great escape by beating 2nd placed Leverstock Green by 29 runs and a heavy defeat for 3rd placed Old Owens meant Hemel leapfrogged both teams to go 2nd. Leverstock Green, who had been down in 8th before the timed matches, took the other promotion place. In the first week of the season it was Hodgins jr who made the headlines for Hemel. Now, in the final week and with the pressure on, it was Hodgins sr who showed the value of experience, taking 5-24 to ensure his side could chase a manageable target. Well done dad. In 2A it was the relegation battle that provided the greatest interest. Hitchin, in 9th, needed to win to stand a chance of escaping and did so emphatically, after chalking up a score of 305-5. Above them stood Holtwhites Trinibis who were bowled out for just 93 but had picked up enough bowling bonus point to remain safe, just four points ahead of Hitchin. Reviewing results elsewhere, there were several nuggets of interest, starting with Southgate Compton in 3A, who were 6th in the table with just two games remaining but today took the 2nd promotion place. Then in 3B the top two teams met and it was 2nd placed Bayford & Hertford who finished the stronger, taking the 30 points necessary to stay five points ahead of Luton II. In 4A, Southgate Adelaide enjoyed a similar scenario to Hemel (in div. Representatives from Southgate Compton with Saracens Marcelo Bosch 1), moving up from 4th to 2nd, and Matt Gallagher and the Division Three A Trophy thanks to their own win over 3rd place Parkfield & H, along with defeat for Sandridge who had started in 2nd. At the foot of that table, North Mymms moved up from 10th to the safety of 8th, after beating Stevenage, who were thus condemned to relegation by dropping to 9th. A notable performance in 4B came from Matt Bowles of Reed II against 2nd placed Hoddesdon II. In 4.3 overs he took 5 for 11 including a hat-trick, the last three wickets to fall. Old Haberdashers and St Albans II were level on points at the top of 5A going into their final matches. Old Habs lost while St Albans were defeating 3rd placed Hatfield & Crusaders and so the silverware was decided. In 5B, as in div. 1, a Kings Langley team played a key part in 99


the promotion issues and in this case they also benefited significantly. From the depths of the relegation zone, Kings Langley II took on top dogs Holtwhites Trinibis II and won (by one wicket) which pushed Holtwhites down to 2nd, below the victorious Flamstead and elevated Kings Langley II to the safety of 8th place. Bovingdon, in 6A must have been deflated after they successfully chased the mammoth 300-6 set by Rickmansworth, only to learn that they had been relegated, remaining in 9th place by just two points. One consolation for Bovingdon this season was seeing senior batsman Ian Arnold pass 10,000 runs for the club. The key matches in 7B took on the look of play offs, involving the top four teams. First placed Old Elizabethans II beat Dunstable III, who remained 4th. Sandwiched in between them were Hatch End and Potters Bar III, locked on 393 points and now meeting in a winner-takes-all contest. The spoils went to Potters Bar III, bowled out for 177 but then dismissing Hatch End for 145 in the 46th over.

Ian Arnold, Bovingdon

It was also 2nd v 3rd in 8A where Datchworth II started with a 22 points advantage over Flitwick III, a critical difference in view of Flitwick’s victory, with three balls to spare, as Datchworth held on to their promotion place with a six points cushion. And 2nd v 3rd again in 10A where Boxmoor II were in a fight for the six points they needed to be assured of promotion and were given a hard time by Watford Town III until the points target was reached. Then they let their hair down and romped to victory by three wickets. And that was where my league season finished, one of two non-playing umpires (a rarity at this level), bathed in sunshine on the very pleasant Boxmoor Common, ‘The Oval’, where the club has played for the last 160 years. And as a fitting send-off for the season, the match was played against the backdrop of a mediaeval tournament in the adjoining field, with cannon fire ringing in our ears.

Corben Oriel, Redbourn

Let’s give the honour of the final match report this season to Redbourn IV and their under 13 age group player Corben Oriel. His team were lying second in regional div. B west and were up against already promoted West Herts V who, chasing 176, needed just four runs to win with two wickets and two overs remaining. Undaunted, Corben bowled the last two batsmen in successive balls, ensuring his team could celebrate promotion.

Postscript Transgressions by two of the divisional winners resulted in retrospective points fines by the League management committee, which had a serious impact on the teams involved. Northchurch, who headed 3A for most of the season, enjoyed the services of a high quality Australian but it was discovered that he had played previously for Queensland U19s. Under ECB rules he was therefore classed as a non-amateur, making him ineligible to play in any division below our Championship division. As he had played for the whole season, the fine was severe, amounting to a deduction of 105 points. This meant that Northchurch finished mid-table, allowing Hertford II to join Southgate Compton in the promotion places. In 5A, St Albans II were found to have played three ineligible players in their last two matches, both of which they won, taking them to the top of that division. The fine was a deduction of 30 points, dropping the team to 3rd. Leverstock Green II, beaten by St Albans II in the penultimate match, took the final promotion place instead. 100


Two other post-season decisions affected some relegation issues, between divisions 1-3B, in some cases reprieving teams who thought they had fallen through the trap door. First, after their traumatic season in the Championship, Botany Bay decided to withdraw their 1st XI from the League, thus turning their 2nd team, which was relegated from 6B, into their 1st XI for 2018, playing in 7B. Then St Albans West Indian were told they could not be promoted from 3B due to poor facilities marks and their failure to carry out improvements requested the previous year. The club subsequently withdrew from the League, ahead of the 2018 season.

A few facts. Only three teams remained unbeaten all season: Frogmore (6B), Old Albanian III (10A). and Old Eastcotians (regional C west). No team had a 100% record but Old Eastcotians won all seven matches they played and the other two were rained off. In only four divisions did the team which was leading the table at the halfway mark, fail to go on and take the title. They were divs. 4A, 4B, 5B and A west. (This ignores the special situation in 3A). Seven teams enjoyed their 3rd successive promotion since the league was reorganised in 2015. 11 teams were promoted for the second successive year. Two teams bounced back with promotion after being relegated the previous season.

Leading players The averages can be seen in full starting on page 126 of this handbook but it is worth picking out a few of the leading performers, who made such a difference to the success of their teams. For Premier division champions Welwyn Garden City, Owais Shah, a man with more than 16,000 first class runs to his name, topped the division’s batting averages with 686 runs at 85.75. Harpenden’s Ben Frazer, with 33 wickets at 13.43, was the season’s leading bowler at the top level. The top two teams in the Championship division had good squads but each had a player who made the difference and topped the averages. For Hoddesdon it was Jayden Broodryk whose 724 runs were scored at 65.82. At West Herts, Will Jones was the only player throughout the whole league to take 50 wickets. This was achieved at the very economical average of 8.02 runs per wicket. In division 1, Northwood suffered relegation, finishing in last place but could boast the division’s leading batsman in Nirrushan Raveenthirarajah with 522 runs at 58.00. Old Owens fared better than Northwood but didn’t gain promotion despite boasting the best two bowlers, Muhammad Ahmed with 26 wickets at 9.38 and Rob Sibley who took 21 wickets at 12.29. Elsewhere, the stand-out performances included a near monopoly of the 3B averages by St Albans West Indian, with two of the four leading batsmen and the top three bowlers. That was almost matched in 6B where Frogmore bowlers took the top three places. Their captain, Jack Massey, led the pack with 22 wickets at 7.32, and was also the division’s leading run scorer, with 706 runs (average 50.43). Another near-monopoly came in 9A where Potten End provided the top three bowlers in the averages and three of the top five batsmen. Michael Gurney’s bowling average of just 3.61 was the lowest in the whole league structure and for good measure he took fourth place in the division’s batting averages, having scored 537 runs at 48.82.

All-rounder Chris Munroe playing for Aldenham

It was a family affair in two of the divisions. In 5B Flamstead’s Tom Ridley headed the bowling averages, helped by a best of 5 for 7, his 33 wickets 101


costing 9.52. That was just ahead of brother Jack, who took 30 wickets at 10.53. In 10A the family connection was at Aldenham, where Chris Munroe topped the divisional batting averages with 533 runs at 76.14, while his brother Charlie was the leading bowler, with 27 wickets at 8.78, Charlie also appeared in the batting list with 397 runs at 56.71. Div. 7A offered the leading players whose averages were at the levels which usually make the Hon. Secretary gasp with incredulity when calling up the winners to receive their trophies at the AGM. Leading batsman Luke Frey (Berkhamsted II) scored 762 runs at a near-Bradmanesque average of 95.25, including a best of 180*. His bowling counterpart was William Pickworth of Tewin whose 20 wickets cost a mere 94 runs, meaning an average of 4.70. In 7B James Fitzgerald of Old Elizabethans II was better than Bradmanesque, recording an average of 100.50, scoring 603 runs. He was the only player throughout the league with an average of over 100. Congratulations go to Heyden Hoddesdon IV, champions of regional division C east, for being the only player to top both the batting and bowling averages. In eight James Fitzgerald, Old Elizabethans innings he scored 344 at 57.33 (highest score 139) and as the leading bowler took 19 wickets for at 7.26 (best of 6 for 20). The final word goes to 54 year-old Graeme Roe of Langleybury III, who doesn’t appear in the official lists, even though he averaged 101. He scored 505 runs but his nine not outs meant he didn’t achieve the qualifying mark of six completed innings! As one of the main priorities for batsmen is to not get out, I am delighted to pay tribute to Graeme here for his exceptional season

The play-offs Details of the Premier division and Championship play offs can be found on pages 103-107 of this handbook. For the record, the semi-finals involved Radlett, who lost by four wickets to Welwyn Garden City; and North Mymms who scored 219-10 and lost to Totteridge Millhillians who were 59-3 in 9.4 overs when rain stopped play but went through to final having finished above Mymms in the league season. The final was also rain affected and very close, with Totteridge Millhillians reaching 222-6 in 50 overs but losing on the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern method to Welwyn Garden City who scored 213-9 in 45 overs. In the Championship play-off, to decide who would take the final place in the Premier division next season, Hertford, with 242-6, comfortably beat Hoddesdon, who were 152 all out. Richard Bayliss

2017 Premier Division Play Off Semi-Finals Digswell Park 9th September 2017

Welwyn Garden City won by 4 wickets Radlett 202-9 (50 overs) Welwyn Garden City 208-6 (43.2 overs)

Fraser Crawford 47, Tom Jenkins 44, Joe Cooke 37, Kabir Toor 25, James Southgate 3-26, Julian Chinn 2-20 Owais Shah 78*, Connor Emerton 28* Fakir Dungaria 2 – 21 (7)

A heroic effort by WGC’s ground staff led by Simon Bridgewater produced a dry, slow but true wicket and a playable outfield on a largely sunny day. These two teams know each other well having contested the Play-Off final in 2016 and shared the honours in the league matches in 2017. Radlett won the toss and elected to bat, getting off to a very useful start as 83 runs came from the opening 20 overs with no loss of wickets. Tom Jenkins rode his luck, Fraser Crawford was more careful and Shah’s 10 overs were expensive, as were Bridgewater’s 3 in this period. Dropped catches did not help but the ground fielding was excellent and Connor Emerton’s 7 overs for only 20 runs tied down one end. As Radlett tried to accelerate the batsmen took chances and paid the penalty. Smart fielding from James Southgate, Andrew Nolan and Daniel Blacktopp caused the run outs of Jenkins for 44, Crawford for 47 and Kabir Toor for 25. With Joe Cooke being kept in check and then dismissed for 27 by Southgate in an impressive spell of off-spin bowling, the back of the Radlett innings had been broken. 142 – 2 in the 35th over became 171 – 8 in the 43rd. It was clear that a score of 200 was achievable but not much more. In reply WGC were far from secure with Arif being bowled for a duck in Sangkera’s 3rd over and then losing Champion (24) and Blacktopp (17) with only 53 on the board. But Owais Shah was looking very secure and 52 comfortable runs came along in 10 overs before his partner Southgate had a rush of blood and was stumped. Two more blows to the WGC innings occurred when Andrew Nolan and Shay Emerton also fell cheaply and at 134 for 6 the game was far from won. Daniel Blacktopp, Welwyn Garden City batsman & wicketkeeper

But WGC bat deep and Shah was still there. He found a most capable partner in Connor Emerton who calmly progressed to 28 not out as he himself marched along to 78 not out from 86 balls ending the match with a six.

Both Shah and Emerton could have been deemed man of the match but Southgate’s bowling at a key stage and the overall excellence of his fielding gave him the honour. Paddy Carlin

Totteridge Millhillians Progress to Final

In the second semi final Totteridge Millhillians progressed to the final due to their higher position in the Premier table after their match with North Mymms fell victim to the weather. North Mymms 219-10 (49.2 overs) Totteridge Millhillians 59-3 (9.2 overs)

Nesan Jeyaratnam 66, Hamza Qayyum 54 Adnan Mohammed 5-37 (10), Joe Wray 3-50 (10) Jonathan Miles 29, Ben Howgego 24 Rhys Wynne 2-5 (1.4), Rhett Bridgens 1-32 (5) 103


2017 Premier Division Play Off Final Digswell Park on September 16th 2017

Welwyn Garden City won by 1 wicket (DLS) Totteridge Millhillians 222-6 (50 overs)

Steve Selwood 70*, Chris Mason 41 Simon Webster 34, Simon Bridgewater 3-43 Alex Chalker 2-31

Welwyn Garden City 213-9 (45 overs)

Daniel Blacktopp 74, James Hewitt 54 Owais Shah 39, Simon Webster 3-45, Shaun O’Brien 2-36, Jack Cattrall 2-28

The 2017 Saracens League season ended with a tremendous game of cricket which was decided off the very last ball. Again the WGC ground team led by Simon Bridgewater produced a playable pitch after a dreadful week’s weather and it was utterly fitting that he should pick up the bowling honours and score the winning run – the only run he had scored in the league all season! Sometimes you get what you deserve. With uncertain weather about and Duckworth Lewis lurking, it was no surprise that WGC captain Andrew Nolan asked Totteridge Millhillians to bat first. Shah’s bowling was again relatively expensive but Connor Emerton was again very good, shattering Howgego’s stumps in his 4th over and completing an 8 over spell for only 28 runs beating the bat frequently. Jon Miles and Simon Webster however looked mostly secure taking the score to 70 in the 20th over before the former ran out of patience against Bridgewater’s slow bowling and was caught in the deep. Almost immediately afterwards Webster did the same as Hewitt pulled off a magnificent catch. But Selwood was batting very well and when Shaun O’Brien also lost patience against Bridgewater he found a useful partner in skipper Chis Mason as the pair took the score to 218 in the penultimate over of the innings, Selwood finishing on 70 not out. The final score of 222 with a slowish outfield looked slightly, but only slightly, under par but with 5 overs gone and both WGC openers dismissed and the score 10 – 2 it looked a very good total. Opening bowlers Webster and the Aussie Cattrall were right on top and Blacktopp and Shah were initially bent on survival. At this time the weather became most unpleasant – it was dark even allowing for the pink ball - it was drizzling and sometimes raining harder. Neither side wanted to come back for a replay and, to their credit, the 2 umpires and the fielding side decided they could stay out no matter what until the 20 over Duckworth Lewis target became relevant. The target score had already been reduced to 213 from 45 overs, so after each over past the 20 the D-L par score became of great interest as the weather was still threatening. The partnership between Shah (30) and Blacktopp took WGC level with D-L. Southgate was out cheaply but James Hewitt came in to score 54 in 42 balls and take the game very much in WGC’s favour. With Blacktopp in and Hewitt scoring rapidly WGC reached “what could possibly go wrong” territory – score 183 – 4, 9 overs left and 30 needed.

104


Of course it did go wrong. Blacktopp on 74 hit one magnificent straight drive and then mishit to mid-off. 10 runs later with 6.5 overs to go and 20 needed Hewitt (54) did the same thing. Andy Nolan was LBW; Alex Chalker hit 2 boundaries and was bowled, as was Connor Emerton, by Shaun O’Brien. With 2 overs to go the last pair, Julian Chinn and Simon Bridgewater, were at the wicket and 7 runs were needed. Neither had batted much in 2017 and Bridgewater had not even scored a run. Somehow Bridgewater survived an over from Cattrall and in the last over Chinn hit a terrific boundary off Shaun O’Brien and then took a single to leave his partner wanting 1 run from 3 balls. The first two were missed but Bridgewater somehow squeezed the last to midwicket to win the match. Dan Blacktopp was awarded man-of-the-match, but perhaps the spinner/ground manager Bridgewater really deserved it. Paddy Carlin

Welwyn Garden City - Premier League Champions and Premier Division Winners 105


Hertford Retain Premier Division Status Balls Park on September 9th 2017

Hertford won by 90 runs *Hertford 242-6 (50 overs)

William Ray 77, James Riddle 53*, Elliot King 33 Bill Thorne 3-43

Hoddesdon 152-10 (41.3 overs)

Rob Walters 68, Antony Higgs 21 John Ryan 3-31, Scott Ruskin 2-25

After a challenging season, in which they had mustered just 2 victories, Hertford had a final opportunity to retain the Premier Division status as they took on local rivals Hoddesdon in a promotion/relegation decider at Balls Park. With heavy rain the previous day, the Balls Park wicket and outfield were in remarkably good condition and on winning the toss, Hertford captain Richard Leather chose to bat first. Hoddesdon were able to find some early swing and kept the Hertford pair of Will Ray and Ian Harris under control. Ray and Harris batted patiently, taking the score to 34 before Harris played a big shot out of frustration at Kevin Walls, and in dragging his back foot the slightest margin, gave the Hoddesdon keeper Grier all the opportunity he required to remove the bails and dismiss Harris for 6. Having seen off the opening spell from Davies, Ray and his new partner King, were able to build momentum. Even so, a slowish wicket and an even slower outfield made scoring difficult and boundaries were hard to come by. As the mid-innings drinks break approached Ray passed 50 and Hertford were gradually building the kind of platform from which to take advantage in the latter stages. Just as they looked to take the attack to Hoddesdon, they were pegged back, with the impressive Thorne removing first King and then Richard Leather, as both were bowled chopping the ball on to their stumps. When James Leather was trapped LBW by a Walters delivery which skidded low from round the wicket, Hertford were in danger of having wasted their early good work. Jamie Riddle, fresh off a prolific season captaining Hertford's second XI, came to the crease seeking to carry his good form into the high-pressure situation. For the next few overs, Ray and Riddle rebuilt looking to get Hertford into a position to effectively use the final 10 overs. Will Ray's excellent innings finally came to an end when he was trapped LBW by Thorne for 77, Hertford were 155-5, but had plenty of batting to come. Joined by the energetic Cowell, Riddle took control and started to pick the scoring rate up. A quick partnership of 40 took Hertford to 195-6 when Cowell was caught by Brown, running in from the square leg boundary. Brown may have been regretting taking the catch, as when he returned to bowl a couple of overs later, the new batsman Slater took an immediate liking, hitting a couple of powerful strokes, including a large 6 into the carpark. This was a decisive over, with the momentum fully swinging towards Hertford. Riddle and Slater took Hertford to an impressive 242-6, Riddle making an excellent 53* and Slater an important 24*. At the halfway stage it was Hertford who held a slight advantage, with runs on the board a precious commodity in such a pressurised game. With early wickets the order of the day, James Leather duly obliged removing left handed Ashley Leat for 0 in the first over. This brought the key Hoddesdon pairing of Rob Walters and Sam Davis and for a few overs they made Hertford sweat as they punished some wayward bowling from Slater. Undeterred, Slater then produced his second moment of magic for the day, as he bowled Davis with a brilliant delivery which clipped the top of off stump. Hertford were buoyed by this dismissal and started to pile the pressure on the incoming Hoddesdon batsman Clarke. Jon Ryan entered the fray and 106


looked in complete control from his first over, proving extremely difficult to score off. Walters was now being kept off strike for large periods, and although he did not become frustrated the pressure was building further. Ryan then bowled Clarke with another fantastic delivery to reduce Hoddesdon to 61-3. Hertford seized the initiative once again as Folland removed the next man Sturdy LBW in his first over and Achillea was then stumped by Cowell of the bowling of Ryan to leave Hoddesdon 72-5. With Walters still at the crease Hertford were aware that this game was far from won, and had to endure a quiet period, where Hoddesdon worked hard to get themselves back into the game. As the game was building to a crescendo, something had to give, and it did, Higgs called Walters through for a quick single, having chipped the ball just out of the reach of bowler Ryan. James Leather swooped at mid-off and threw on the run to Cowell, narrowly beating Walters and crucially removing him for a well made 68. Hertford now sensed the opportunity to finish Hoddesdon off. Ryan first bowled Brown for 1, finishing an exceptional spell of bowling with figures of 10-1-31-3. Ruskin joined the party, beating the defences of first the obdurate Higgs and then Thorne to leave Hertford within 1 wicket of victory. Despite a dropped catch and a couple of adventurous strokes from Grier, Hertford held their nerve as the game was wrapped up with another run-out and Hertford celebrated a fantastic victory and complete team performance. At the end of a challenging season, Hertford saved their best for last and gave plenty of reasons to be optimistic for next season. With so much change over the last winter, Hertford can reflect that in the circumstances they achieved their ultimate objective, and that the years experience for a young side, will hold them in much better stead for the 2018 season.

Readers Herts 20/20 Cup 2017 *Bishop's Stortford 151-8 Beat Potters Bar 151-9 by fewer wickets lost

Potter Bar lost to Bishop's Stortford in a last ball heartbreak in a thrilling final to conclude an excellent Herts T20 finals day at a scorchingly hot Letchworth CC. Stortford boosted from their semi final win over Hertford, managed to slip in Herts 12th man Dom Chatfield, fresh from his unbeaten 137 the day before to make the task even greater for Bar, depleted by four players due to Herts and Middx U17 commitments. However Stortford won the toss and batted first on a fresh pitch but lost wickets at regular intervals as Bar caught and had a real energy about them in the field. Stortford had a powerful top order and got off to a good start but Bar kept plugging away. Skipper Eddie Ballard went for 15 as Mitch Dennis held a catch and the impressive Joe Burslem went leg before for 32. 51 for 2 was soon 65 for 4 as Chatfield went for 7 and Palmer for 1 as Bar were right into the long Stortford batting line-up. James Scott bowled Chad Barrett for 10 but as always in T20 cricket, runs still came at a lick and the ask to Tom Burslem 28, Stortford crabbed up to 151 from their 20 overs. The bowling and fielding from Bar was very good throughout and the wickets were shared around. So 152 to win for Bar and they got off to a good start as James Scott found the boundary four times within the first three overs. However he perished for 20 and there was then a nice partnership between Harrison Palmer and Drew Hawley flourishing as Bar looked in good fettle. However Harrison Palmer went in scruffy fashion as he was run out when both batter and bowler appeared to be entangled on the ground and the bowlers end of the pitch resembled a Boxing Day sale queue at 9am. The result saw Harrison Palmer depart for 13 and Bar 58 for 2. Stortford took pace off the ball as Bar kept up with the rate but as wickets tumbled the DLS kept rising and then started to look second favourites. Drew Hawley (40) and Callum Baylis (30 off 21) kept Bar in with a punchers chance. Bar wanted 11 off the last over and needed 3 off the last ball. Wickets were level but Bar were behind on the scores after 6 overs. Alfie Duke, who'd clubbed 8 in three balls slogged the final ball off to long on. Just as the ball appeared top be heading to the fence, a desperate dive and stop and throw ensued Bar finished one run shy, and lost the cup on losing more wickets. Mark Shepherd

Northchurch Take the Sunday T20

*Old Elizabethans 111-9 lost to Northchurch 114-3 by 7 wickets Fantastic fielding performances ensure the black and ambers successfully navigate finals day to earn a trophy with the last match. With the evenings drawing in, it was always going to be tight to fit in the three matches of the Herts League T20 finals day at The Meadow, however, the floodlights were not eventually required as Northchurch provided the energy to illuminate a final played in gathering gloom. For a chance at adding the cup to their division three pennant, the hosts had earlier dispatched Langleybury in a potential banana skin of a semi-final, made all the more slippery by the ten o’clock start after the club’s presentation evening. George Liveing (24) and Steve McGiffin (25*) were the main contributors to a straightforward run chase, after Northchurch had restricted the fellow plucky villagers to 84 on a very dewy field which gave great value for shots. Chief tormentors with the ball were Charles Fidler (two for 11), Oliver Johnson (two for 18) and slow man Tom Garraway (nought for seven), all from spells of four overs. The second semi-final provided the best match of the day as Old Elizabethans came from behind to win in thrilling style. Datchworth had batted first and, mainly thanks to 79 from captain Tom Bennett, posted a better-than-run-a-ball 125. Old Elizabethans struggled to keep up with the rate and looked for all money like they would finish short until number six, Charlie Busby, came to the crease and nailed an unbeaten 48 from half as many balls to see the Barnett side home. And so to the final which, in spite of the rain, had all the ingredients for a great game. Old Elizabethans play in a division higher than Northchurch and had a vocal cohort of travelling fans, along with momentum from their first game. Northchurch had the home advantage and would take confidence from having beaten their opposition twice in the league in 2016. It was difficult to find anything to decide between the two sides. Tom Vila, standing in for a very poorly Lee Johnson who had led the team so brilliantly to the final, elected to bowl first after winning the toss; it looked certain that the whole game would be played in the rain and it would surely be preferable to field in the better of the conditions. Old Elizabethans raced to 45 from five overs, with consecutive sixes from Patwary giving Northchurch some early cause for concern. However, an over of spin from Garraway slowed the run rate before the skipper came on to remove the big hitter with his very first ball. From there, Northchurch seized the initiative. Thanks to exceptional fielding, in support of some very tight bowling, Old Elizabethans failed to get another partnership going and lost wickets steadily throughout the innings.

Fidler was excellent, especially in his second spell and finished with fine figures of one for 18, with 13 dot balls, from his four overs. A change of ends worked for David Vila, who knocked middle stump out of the ground to remove Charlie Scutt with the third ball of his second spell. Tom Vila came back for one over in the middle of the innings and enjoyed immediate success coming around the wicket to the left handed hero of the semi-final, Busby, whose off stump cartwheeled spectacularly in the direction of the pavilion. Garraway had the tough job of controlling things with his off-breaks when OE’s were looking to accelerate but managed to sneak in 12 dot balls and made scoring sufficiently tough to draw two run-outs, one coming from an explosive direct hit by McGiffin. Ollie Johnson came on to bowl three overs at the death and, with a spell of two for six, demonstrated why he had collected the John Lay bowling trophy the previous evening. Taking the momentum into the second half, Northchurch felt that the 112 needed to win would be achievable with sensible batting, though the weather had the potential to force the tempo of the innings. Ten overs would constitute a game, with the run rate the only consideration should it be rained off after that. The openers made a solid start and were up with the rate against the off-spin of OE’s captain Nav Akhtar and the skiddy left armers of Busby. Liveing latched onto anything short and Hobley rotated well. The run rate slowed after two wickets in consecutive overs from Dom Goring, who found a bit of zip on an increasingly damp pitch. Northchurch found themselves behind at the halfway point, in worsening conditions and with fielders starting to slip. Coming off at this point would mean a win for the visitors but the umpires were excellent in keeping the game on. A stroke of luck for Garraway, who survived a cacophonous appeal for caught behind, provided the impetus for him to kick on and he played with characteristic freedom to get a partnership going again. When Hobley was bowled by the returning Busby for a well compiled run-a-ball 30 that would earn him the MoM award, Northchurch still required 36 from 40 balls. After his very successful season in the UK, it was perhaps fitting that Steven McGiffin was the last man to take guard in 2017. In spite of the wet, cold and dark, he played himself in with easy style before joining in the fun with Garraway to end the match with 13 balls to spare. The winning runs sparked cheers from the brave Northchurch supporters, who were by now huddled together on the veranda, and sent them scurrying into the warmth of the pavilion to watch the presentation of a very well earned trophy. As Summer shook hands with Autumn in the closing stages of a brilliant day, it felt like just the right time to be drawing a line under another magnificent season of cricket at The Meadow. Thomas Vila

John Barker Cup 2017

This cup was donated in 1998 by the Hertfordshire County Cricket Association in memory of Hitchin past-President, John Barker. It is awarded, each year, to the senior League club which throughout the season exhibited the highest levels of fair play and sportsmanship, both on and off the field. The task of determining the marks to be awarded to each club in each match it played was given to the League panel umpires. The marks are derived from those awarded by the umpires after each match, in the categories of Hospitality (of the home team) and Behaviour (of both teams). For each category the total marks awarded were then averaged and the mean of these averages taken to yield an overall performance mark. These marks were then used to produce a "league" table for the 50 teams in the top 5 divisions.

The Premier Division ceased to exist in October 2001 when the top-flight clubs voted to play under the full auspices of the Home Counties Premier Cricket League, forming Division Two (East) of that competition. All clubs returned to the Hertfordshire League in 2014 to form a Premier Division and Championship. Their records are shown below.

Howard Marshall

16th August 1935 to 22nd September 2017

Howard Marshall proudly displaying the National Village Cup in 2012

Howard Marshall, who died at the age of 82, re-located to North Hertfordshire from Harrow in the early 1970s and began playing for Reed CC soon afterwards. He was a tidy wicket-keeper and useful batsman capable of scoring a few solid runs. The cricketers changed in the Village Hall and drank afterwards in the Cabinet public house and the fixtures were mostly friendlies against local village clubs. Howard was soon part of Reed CC’s Committee and he successfully applied for grants from the National Playing Fields Association and Lord’s Taverners to enable the Club to purchase surplus land adjacent to the village green from North Herts District Council. Building a Clubhouse started in the winter of 1976 /7. Howard often related the story of fitting the roof tiles during a snowstorm. This Clubhouse boasted such luxuries as separate changing-rooms, a bar, a kitchen, toilets and showers; things we current players all take for granted now but in 1976 only large “Town” Clubs had similar facilities. Howard installed all the pipework and plumbing and by all contemporary accounts he did most of the work himself. Howard became Club Captain in 1974 and led the team for four seasons in an honourable and fair manner and whilst winning was important, it was accompanied by a need for full team involvement. He served two separate terms as Club President, 1981 to 1997 then from 2007 until 2012 and was honoured with Life Membership of Reed CC in 1998. Howard’s proudest moment in his long association with Reed CC was their victory at Lord’s in the National Village Cup Final of 2012. He thoroughly enjoyed the celebrations and post-match Gala Dinner hosted by MCC in the Long Room. Increasing ill-health during 2017 meant that Howard was unable to witness first-hand Reed’s progress in the competition but received frequent updates as the campaign played-out including Reed’s second Village Cup victory at Lord’s that came only five days before his death. Howard was able to raise a celebratory glass once the match was over knowing that the Cup would be heading back to a place of prominence inside the Clubhouse that he had done so much to construct. Prior to his death, Howard had been pleased to hear the news that the Club Committee had agreed to a proposal that the Clubhouse be named the Howard Marshall Pavilion in his honour.

Alan Fantham

20th July 1935 to 1st January 2018

Northchurch CC announced the passing of Alan Fantham, peacefully in Watford General Hospital on New Year’s Day, aged 82. Alan was a passionate Northchurch supporter, working tirelessly for the local parish council, championing village projects and badgering authorities for support and finances. His first love (aside from his family of course!) was the cricket club, following in his father’s footsteps. He worked tirelessly on and off the pitch in order to provide Northchurch with the facilities and strength of character it has today. His un-measurable contribution will never fully be known but included general maintenance in and out of the pavilion, groundsman, captain (opening bat and opening bowler!), secretary for 37 years, chief mole-catcher and despite failing health, he still managed to win local grass cutting contracts, generating thousands of pounds worth of essential funds for the club. It is only since his passing that we have truly realised the full extent of his administrative contribution. Alan was born in the village in 1935, just a cricket ball’s throw from the ground. Whilst he enjoyed most sports, his cricket career was exceptional, taking over 3,500 wickets with his medium pace, swing bowling and very loud appeals! He also scored over 27,000 runs (probably worth twice as many today, remembering the general standards of pitches then) and taking a few hundred catches as well! He was always keen for Northchurch players to play for the village and was heavily involved in the forming of The West Herts Cricket League, providing many players' first experience of league cricket in the hope they’d not be tempted to leave. He inspired generations of Northchurch children to get involved in the game he loved and even during his last few days in hospital, was more concerned with the club’s well-being than his own health! Under his stewardship, Northchurch added a new, brick clubhouse (now named after him), an extension to the playing area, achieved by the purchase of nearby land, artificial nets, a digital scoreboard and so much more. He will be sorely missed and the club would like to thanks members and friends for the hundreds of kind messages received since his passing. His funeral was held at St Mary’s Church, Northchurch on Saturday 27th January and the huge attendance was testimony to the unselfish work he carried out and his contribution to village life in Northchurch.

The Battle for the Real Ashes Urn - Made in China!

So the serious bit first … over 50s cricket has been thriving throughout the UK for a few years now. It’s highly competitive, well organised, good quality and a great way to spend a Wednesday afternoon during the first half of the cricket season. On top of that we have taken our brand of cricket to exotic places: 2016 – an England squad visited the exotic island of Sri Lanka, an opportunity to play on the test grounds of Kandy and Galle (The Red Fort!). 2017 to South Africa … excellent vineyards and food compensated for the lack of quality opposition! Word has spread about this over 50s lark and 2017 brought the Australians over for their first ever tour. They came over with a full tour itinerary, including three ‘test’ matches (Wales, Midlands, South East England) and 17 games against counties, So the main Test match arrived – their words not ours – South East England v Australia. Welwyn Garden City, Friday 4th August; 50 over game; 10 overs a bowler max. Decent tour performances abroad squeezed me into the squad along with fellow SHPCL players Duncan Watson (no fixed abode!-formerly Chorleywood), Lee Channer (Langleybury), as well as Mel Hussain and Tim Smith (Bishop's Stortford). An odd start to proceedings as the Aussies request the national anthems before the game (real chess players these Aussies) and chaos ensues as WGC go hunting for an AV System. Eventually we are all lined up looking splendid and dignified in blazers. Australian national anthem up first – I thought I had gone deaf – know I might not be a great cricketer but over 25 years of attending England rugby matches has made me an expert in our national anthem and they heard it – all barrels. Toss completed, we are in the field. We open up with the young pup from Suffolk, Cooper, and the wily Tim Smith who still plays in our Premiership. I know now why – he is a real magician. This guy can put a ball on 50 pence piece. He sees a chink in their opening batsman defence. Four balls all land on the same spot-first three straighten, fourth cuts to first slip. A miraculous catch at first slip, inches from the ground -wrong hand. Smith squeezes the life out of their number 3 allowing just one run off 10 balls, before he plays all-round an in swinger- LBW. Suddenly I am on and as usual on these occasions the adrenalin gets the better of me. Four overs have gone by in a whirl and despite one maiden I have gone for 16 runs. I am probably saved from the axe as Tim Smith finishes his great spell (2-29) and is replaced by left arm spin of Newman. My adrenaline vanishes and then I feel more rhythmic. 5th over, 1st ball, leg cutter, comfortable catch by Temor makes me feels as if I have made a contribution. Second ball is a jaffa (to a right hander) it lifts from just short of a length straight at his chest and diverts off the seam towards first slip. There’s a clear nick- only problem is that it’s a left hander facing me – from nowhere Andrew Davis (wicket keeper/ Berkshire and top man) leaps down the legs side to take it both hands. Fair play to the batsman he walks and hat trick ball beckons.

Tony Rhodes picks up the bowling award for his 4-26 172

Suffice to say no hat trick but with Newman turning the screw at the far end, I just go for wickets. Luckily for me it works. The number six tries to hit his way out of trouble …. Nice catch Watto!


Enter their skipper who soon holed out to our skipper at short mid-wicket. The Australians are in trouble – 69-7. Enter Heaton at number 8 who has one piece of luck when my best ball of the day takes his edge straight into Temor hands – bloody hell I’ve got a five for – but somewhere between the celebration and reality Temor has dropped the simplest catch of the day. It happens, let’s get on with it – I’m causing problems and its fun – way it’s supposed to be! Watto (Right arm off spin) replaces Newman. Whilst all this carnage is going on their number 4 has stroked himself to 36 and out of nowhere leaves his crease. Watto sees him coming pushes it through and bowls him – Australia in serious trouble at 86-7. My spell has finished (10 overs 4 -26). Australia are now just trying to bat the fifty overs scoring just 25 runs off 12 overs, then at 111-9 look sunk, with 5 overs left. Enter McGhee former opening bowling partner of Craig McDermott. He settles himself in for a couple of overs and then smites the ball to all parts of the ground - 32 not out of 23 balls and Australia finish on a respectable 154-9. Our response is built around the solid opening partnership of Hussain and Alam. Despite some good bowling by the Aussie openers we put the bad ball away and after ten overs sit comfortably on 42. Only two wickets are down when we pass 100 in the 22nd over. A couple of injuries to Aussie bowlers helped. Mel reaches his 50 in the 27th over off 89 balls. Dutton goes for a well-crafted 32 and we only need 20 odd to win and in spite of losing another wicket, the Aussies know the game is up. We win in the 36th over with Hussain 84 not out. Its big handshakes between both teams along with a few beers and a ‘barbie’ – not quite Aussie style but the thought was there. Presentations are then held. I pick up the bowling award (but if truth be known the control of my team mates gave me all the luck) – Mel won MOM for his top innings and then we receive what we had all been waiting for –The Ashes. A big cheer - only for someone to point out it said "Made in China" on the bottom – laughter all-round. But what’s great is we are already talking about the return in Australia.

Tony Rhodes NEWS UPDATE: Australia over 50s to host World Cup in Sydney in November, confirmed. To be followed by a three-match one-day series against England. The Ashes Urn is up for grabs.

Reed Crush Sessay in Another Lord’s Triumph Reed’s skipper Tom Greaves hammered the ball over the Pavilion boundary to win the Watson’s National Village Cup for Reed for the second time. It was a fitting way to end a match which Reed had dominated from the moment Greaves won the toss and put the opposition in under overcast conditions at Lord’s. Opening bowlers Jack Tidey and Toby Fynn contained the Sessay openers to 34 from the first 10 overs and Fynn (6-2-17-1) made the first breakthrough having opposing captain Wilkie caught by Stuart Smith from a lofted drive. Tidey, bowling through the pain of a damaged shoulder, conceded just 28 runs from his allotted 8 overs, but it was the change bowlers, Greaves and Karl Ward, who really put the shackles on. Greaves took the next three wickets to fall for a miserly 19 runs, including a spectacular diving, overhead catch by Smith, running backwards at mid-on, which nearly knocked him out and kept him off the field for a short time. Ward then chipped in with two wickets, the pick of which was a lightning quick stumping by Richard Wharton from a leg-side wide, leaving Sessay tottering at 81-6. It took a defiant knock of 46 by Chris Till to gain some degree of respectability to the score, although Mitchell Cooper fired out two more wickets – another spectacular stumping by Wharton included. Till drove the last ball of the innings fiercely towards the boundary to complete his fifty, but the safe hands of Ward thwarted him and gave Sean Tidey his wicket, leaving Sessay on 164-9 from their 40 overs. It was a fine bowling and fielding display, every catch pouched safely.

Richard Wharton, (Reed CC) Man of the Match

When they batted, Reed lost William Heslam and Rob Lankester cheaply, but Richard Wharton was already into his stride, seeing off the dangerous Stuart Peirse, and when he was joined by James Heslam the runs really started to flow. The pair put on a fine stand of 107 before Heslam was stumped for a masterful 54 and Wharton finished 86 not out before Greaves put the cherry on the cake with his big 6 as Reed totalled 170-3 with four overs to spare. Richard Wharton was the obvious choice for Man of the Match as Reed once again beat a Yorkshire-based Club who were defending Champions. This time it was Sessay who had had a successful League season by winning promotion and in 2012 it had been Woodhouse Grange. This was another great day out for the Reed faithful at the Home of Cricket. Well done Tom and the Reed team! Peter Wholley (Reed’s Scorer at Lord’s) 174


Hertfordshire Association of Cricket Groundsmen

The Hertfordshire Cricket Grounds Association has continued to support all cricket facility providers within the County where necessary with a broad range of member benefits. The Association has continued its prime function of giving expert advice and guidance from professional groundsmen across all matters pertaining to the preparation, management and maintenance of cricket grounds. Furthermore, the Association enables members to access specialised machinery and equipment and provides ground maintenance equipment for hire in addition to negotiating discounts for bulk purchase of seed, soil and fertiliser. As well as its role as facilitator, the Association also organises its own workshops on machinery servicing and maintenance and various events on pitch and outfield maintenance and renovation. The annual Derek Dredge Award for quality of ground was once again awarded by the Association. In 2017 the recipient was Leverstock Green Cricket Club. This award is sponsored by the Hertfordshire Cricket Grounds Association and by A.T.Bone, who renovate the winner’s square free of charge. During 2017 the Association has continued to fund members taking Foundation Courses part A and B to the tune of 50%. Courses have taken place at Letchworth and St Edmunds College, Ware: 20 delegates attended the first of these and 12 the latter. Both courses were run in conjunction with the Bedfordshire Grounds Association and attracted a number of participants from Beds. In February 2017 a Groundsman’s seminar on Spring preparation was held at Flitwick Cricket Club with a number of speakers, including soil research expert, Alex Vickers, and a demonstration by Taylor Rigby. In addition, the IOG has run a Level1 course in Winter pitch preparation and maintenance in October 2017 at St Albans School run by Phil Jeggo, our new Regional Pitch Advisor. The Association, through its pitch advisor, has consulted with a number of clubs in order to make improvements to their squares and outfields during 2017. As an additional resource, the Association continues to provide members with access to the ‘trailer’ of specialist equipment for hire, particularly for end of season renovation. A number of clubs have taken up this offer. To help raise the profile of groundsmanship, the Association was invited to the ECB OSCAs at Chelmsford in September 2017 to present recently created awards to groundsmen in the Eastern Counties. The Hertfordshire winner was Mark Hobley. In conjunction with Sisis, the Association organised a very interesting and informative Pitch Renovation Day at St Albans School in September 2017. Over 200 groundsmen attended this conference from all over the country. The soil analysis and 3 practical demonstrations of pitch scarification with a variety of machinery were particularly helpful. During 2018, due, in part to the re-organisation of cricket administration in the region, with Beds, Cambs, Herts and Hunts now being served by one team entitled, ‘Cricket East’, the Bedfordshire Grounds Committee are going to join the Hertfordshire Cricket Grounds Association to create a new Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire Cricket Grounds Association. After consultation with Martin Darlow, CEO of Cricket East, Jerry Dovey is to be appointed as the Pitch Advisor to both Herts and Beds. Phil Jeggo has taken over from Andy Clarke as the Regional pitch advisor. The Association has, during the 2017 season continued to work with the Saracens Hertfordshire Premier League on operating the ECB Premier Leagues Pitch marking criteria for the Premier and Championship Leagues. The Association advises clubs on improvements that might Chris Wood, President HACG be made to comply with their league status. The Association’s Committee consists of: Chris Wood (President) -ECB Pitch Adviser. Richard Robertson (Chairman)- Reed C.C. Peter Wholley (Secretary) – Reed C.C. Jerry Dovey (Treasurer and Pitch Adviser) - Letchworth C.C. Phil Jeggo – East Midlands Region pitch advisor. Ian Smith – Turf Consultant at St Albans School. Rob Kendle – Director ATBone. Ben Wallis – Chief Operations Officer of ‘Cricket East’. The HCGA Management Committee meets three times a year, holds an AGM once a year and meets on an ad hoc basis when required.

Celebrating the First 50

Hertfordshire is celebrating 50 years of league cricket this year, although this ‘new dawn’ had many doubters when competitive cricket was first proposed, back in 1968. This section of the handbook marks the anniversary with a number of special contributions. These create an historical record*, while also informing current playing generations about the many changes which have taken place over half a century, which have helped to create the high quality Herts League which we all enjoy today. At the same time, we are celebrating 25 years since the Herts League was created as a single structure, through the merger of the Bryan Herts League and the Farren Herts Competition. After a welcome message from Angus Fraser, Head of Cricket at Middlesex, this section includes: The definitive history of the early days of league cricket, written by Bob Simons and published in his book ‘Cricket in Hertfordshire’ in 1996. Some personal recollections from former players who were there at the start: James Wright (currently President of Hertfordshire County Association), Brian Collins (former League Chairman), and Vince Ferrigno (a key mover in the formation of the break-away league in 1973/4). A current player’s perspective from a Herts boy who has gone on to play at the highest level Steven Finn. The view of an overseas player, representing the several hundred from around the world who have played in Hertfordshire. The South African Shane Burger (Gauteng & Radlett) talks about the value of league cricket to his development. Richard White reflects on Herts League players who have also appeared at first-class level, remembering some of the top players he has witnessed from the scorebox. Administering one of the country’s biggest leagues can be a mighty burden and three contributors examine developments and improvements in their areas – the Results Service (Mike Wood), Umpiring (Peter Hinstridge) and Facilities (Mark Shepherd) The success of the Herts League would not have been possible without the support (mostly financial) of sponsors, some of whom have provided their recollections and observations. Finally, spread throughout this section are a number of statistical summaries, including an analysis of the leading teams; how the league has changed, as observed in its key milestone years; and a summary of those clubs who came and went. *In compiling this historical record, it became apparent that one small area of doubt remains. Tring Park (ironically no longer in the Herts League) were crowned the first league champions in 1968, when the table was based on an average points system, but how many games did they play and win to achieve the title? Bob Simons’ book says: “Tring won the title after completing only 5 games (won 4. drew 1). A library search of the records of the Welwyn Times and Hatfield Herald (November 1968) showed Tring having “played two, won two”. So Tring Park were asked for their recollections and the answer was: “won 3, drawn 1”. Further research required! 176


The Vital Role of Clubs and Leagues To launch this special section of the handbook, we invited former England player Angus Fraser MBE, who developed his skills in club cricket, to give his views on the importance of club cricket and league cricket within the structure of the sport. Angus took 177 wickets in 46 Tests and 886 first class wickets in total (plus 392 wickets in List A matches) between 1984-2002. Back in the 80’s, when I were a lad, my Saturdays during the summer were spent playing league cricket for Stanmore CC. Some of the grounds we played at – Teddington, Enfield and Ealing – were very pleasant. Others – which I would prefer not to name – less so. In those days Graham Pauncefort captained Stanmore CC. Pauncefort was quite a contentious character around the clubs of Middlesex and Hertfordshire, and he insisted that those who played for Stanmore on Saturday also made themselves available on Sunday. Sundays were regularly spent travelling to Hertfordshire, where we would play afternoon games against clubs like Hertford, Tring, Radlett, Letchworth, Watford Town, Berkhamsted and Cheshunt. Occasionally we would travel even further north to Dunstable or Luton. I actually made my 1st XI debut for Stanmore at Tring. As I sit here now writing this piece I look back at those days with a huge amount of fondness. By and large the games were played at lovely grounds. These clubs had characters and the players knew each other well. The social side of playing was still strong and occasionally the post-match joviality concluded with some silly games and a sing song. My lift home, Pauncefort, was often the last to leave – his favourite call to the opposition captain was ‘leave the keys, we’ll lock up’. The opposition didn’t always appreciate the goading remark, nor did my parents appreciate my brother and I being dropped off at home at 11pm, especially as we had school or college the next day. Those days, sadly, have long gone but cricket remains a game that teaches you social as well as physical skills. In my position as Managing Director of Cricket at Middlesex CCC I am often asked what I want from Club/League cricket. I believe Club/League cricket has a far bigger role than providing counties with professional cricketers. Yes, I welcome and compliment every club if they find and develop a cricketer who makes his way through to Middlesex’s professional staff, but this is not the reason why they exist. Clubs exist for a number of reasons. They exist, and hopefully thrive, to allow men and women to play this game we love. They exist to provide families and friends with extremely enjoyable and social afternoons. They exist to allow local communities to come together and to enjoy all this wonderful game has to offer. If, every now and then, this environment produces a Steven Finn or Tom Helm then all well and good but, to me, that should not be their priority. Middlesex CCC is an extremely fortunate county for many reasons. One of them is that the county borders Hertfordshire and that cricket in Hertfordshire continues to produce many fine cricketers. A high proportion of those cricketers play for Middlesex and long may that continue. And, moving forward, I can only see the numbers of players we get from you increasing. In closing I would just like to congratulate Hertfordshire on reaching its 50th Anniversary of League Cricket in the county. I hope the year goes well and that cricket continues to thrive in the county. Have a great year. Angus Fraser 177


The Rise of Competitive Cricket

This is how the late Bob Simons recorded the advent of league cricket in the county, in his excellent book, ‘Cricket in Hertfordshire’, published in 1996. We are grateful to the Hertfordshire County Cricket Association for giving us permission to reproduce these extracts. Club cricket is an ideal summer recreation; played in lovely surroundings, it provides agreeable exercise and social contact, but it is nothing without the edge of competition. Until the late Sixties, Hertfordshire cricket was pursuing its accustomed course, with clubs playing roughly the same opponents year after year. But change was in the air. Many players felt that there was a lack of purpose in friendly games and the new generation needed the stimulus of organised competition. There were misgivings. Some regarded league cricket as an aberration, more in keeping with the gritty northern atmosphere. They felt that playing for points was an unnecessary intrusion on the free and easy southern game and would lead to bad feeling and negative play. But the tide of league cricket which had already spread into neighbouring counties was irresistible. In 1966, after Welwyn Garden City Club suggested to the County Committee that it should look into the possibility of a league, a meeting of affiliated clubs was called in the Welwyn pavilion. Seventy people attended and heard a report from Rarnon Subba Row on how the Surrey League was conducted. Following considerable discussion, most clubs voted in favour of league cricket but the concept of several divisions was opposed, mainly by those who disliked the idea of being placed in a lower division. The County Club, while making it clear that any league must be organised by the clubs taking part in it. agreed to set up a Study Group. This Group, consisting of three County Committee members and four others, carried out an extensive survey, They reported back to the clubs who then formed a Committee to establish a Competition in 1968. This began as a very loose arrangement which hardly rippled the surface of the existing scene. Provided that they met seven others in the Competition. clubs could play who and when they liked. 4 points were awarded for a win, 2 for a tie and 1 for a draw. Positions were decided on the best average points. This was not ideal as the number of each club's fixtures varied and some had much stronger opposition than others. The deficiencies of the system became apparent in the first year when Tring won the title after completing only 5 games (won 4. drew 1). The second year of the Competition provided a much more genuine contest with 33 clubs taking part including most of the senior sides in the county. In their first year, Berkhamsted shrugged off the loss to St Albans of their most dangerous bowler, Brian Collins, and took the title with good aggressive cricket. They won 11 matches, drew 3 and lost none. 14 further clubs took part in a newly formed Group 2, which was won by Sandridge with Bovingdon runners-up. In 1970, some clubs played as many as 23 matches, some as few as 10. Royston were worthy Champions, winning 10 of their 12 matches. Sawbridgeworth, Radlett and Chorleywood joined the Competition in 1970; O.M.T. and Bishop's Stortford opted out. A league for 2nd Elevens of Group 1 clubs began this year with 28 participating; Group 2 had now grown to 20 clubs. Ambitious Langleybury joined Group 2 in 1970, were runners-up that season and winners in the three following years. Bishop's Stortford returned to the fold in 1971 and carried off the title the following year. 178


The winners of the Competition in 1973 were Old Finchleians. 36 clubs took part in Group 1 of the Competition in 1973. For some time, there had been talk of altering this unwieldy arrangement. Early in 1972, all member clubs were asked whether they were in favour of changing to a more genuine league, and the majority replied that they were. A Special General Meeting was called on 21 April 1972 to discuss the Committee's proposals. These entailed splitting the Group 1 clubs into two Divisions; Division 1 to consist of the top 20 clubs, according to their average position since taking part in the Competition, Division 2 of the remaining 16 clubs. There would be promotion and relegation. The prospect of being placed in the lower division caused great concern in some of the oldestablished clubs. They felt that the method of selection was unfair as it was based on a system in which each club's fixtures varied in strength. Furthermore, the idea that after one bad season a club could be condemned to meeting inferior teams with poor amenities in the lower division was not acceptable. After a heated exchange of views, the Committee was authorised by a small majority to proceed with their plans. The dissident clubs, labelled "rebels" and "splinters" by the Competition Committee, resolved to preserve their status by forming a separate league of the senior clubs in the county. With Tony Puncher, captain of Sawbridgeworth, as Secretary, and Fred Taylor of Radlett as Chairman, they formed a Steering Committee which invited sixteen clubs to join the new set-up. At the Inaugural General Meeting of the new body, held in Radlett pavilion on 12 April 1973, it was announced that eleven clubs had accepted the invitation to join and five had declined. The reluctant clubs were approached again and eventually all of them agreed to take part. As one of them said: "We are responsible for providing the best cricket we can for our members and we do not feel we should run the risk of being left out in the cold". The whole affair had caused an unprecedented commotion in Hertfordshire cricket. There was disagreement and bitterness between clubs and between individuals within clubs. Both sides felt they were acting fairly and in the best interests of their members. The Hertfordshire League began operating in 1974, and in time the two organisations settled down to provide separate strands of competitive cricket in the county.

A personal recollection

Hertfordshire President James Wright has been a major figure in Hertfordshire cricket for over 50 years, spanning an era which saw the birth and rise of league cricket in the county. A oneclub man, with Hitchin, James played in the formative league and its successive structures for over 25 years. Between 1965 and 1990 he took over 1,400 first team wickets for the club, which included several hundred in the Herts League over a 22 year period. James made his Hertfordshire debut in 1972 and was capped in 1980, taking 89 Minor County Championship wickets at an average of 21.46. James has also been a leading administrator having served as Treasurer of the County for 18 years, becoming President this year. At Hitchin he was, at various times, Treasurer and Chairman of the club. He is also a former Auditor of the Herts League. Against this impressive background, James gives his retrospective view of league cricket in the county. Back in 1967 club cricket was completely different – uncovered wickets; pitches prepared by volunteers; any score over 200 was “too many”; all games were “declaration” games; no warm ups; Sunday fixtures for many clubs were all day fixtures; and most players played both days at the weekend. There was much bar talk after games of the introduction of league cricket and the idea was well received by players. It would be a way of knowing how good your club was in comparison with other Hertfordshire clubs. There were no changes in match rules and any fixture played between two clubs in the league was treated as a league game with the league table based on average points earned over the season. Tring won the league having won both of their two games played and for a few years those sides finishing high in the league were not necessarily the strongest – the strength of a club’s fixture list being a factor in the final placings. In 1973 there was talk of a breakaway league of the major town clubs and whilst some were not in favour initially it was not long before all those invited agreed to create this new league. So in 1974 sixteen clubs changed their fixture lists so that each club had a fixture against all the others either on a Saturday or a Sunday. The playing strength of some of these clubs has fallen (Berkhamsted, Cheshunt, Hitchin, St. Albans and Watford) but now they are beginning to re-emerge. The first winners in 1974 were Berkhamsted where Brian Collins was a major force and then we had a period of five years when Hertford dominated the league. They had a magnificent all round team with Laurie Clough, Laurie Wright, David Ottley, Eric Riddle and John Cundle scoring most of their runs and a variety of bowling in Stuart Cradock, Roger Kent, Mick Eldred and John Cundle taking the majority of the wickets. Harry Galbraith was the captain who got the best out of his team. Alan Burridge and Chris Thomas made Watford a formidable side in the early 80s and David Surridge, Stephen Plumb and Tim Smith made Bishop Stortford a difficult side to score runs against and they won the league in three years between 1986 and 1988. I retired from 1st team cricket in 1990 having played the first 22 years of Hertfordshire league cricket. Throughout this time games were played competitively and afterwards teams mixed socially over jugs of beer. Friendships were made, many of which for me have continued to the present day. Cricket and the Hertfordshire Cricket League are responsible for much of my happiness.

2nd XI league cricket enabled to me to continue playing cricket competitively in the 1990s and at “my” level. Initially it was on the same town grounds which I enjoyed going to but from 1994 my eyes were opened to many other beautiful grounds in Hertfordshire. The introduction of promotion and relegation meant that fixture lists changed annually and some fixtures between local rivals were lost. I have two regrets. Firstly the strength and growth of Hertfordshire League cricket contrasts strongly with the decline of Sunday club cricket. Secondly promotion and relegation inevitably leads to players wanting to play at the highest possible level and moving clubs. I understand these reasons but I fear that clubs are losing their roots. Also almost every club is doing wonderful work coaching and developing young cricketers. At the time these clubs should be reaping the dividend of their time and efforts in improving young cricketers, they move to play at a higher level. Hopefully they will return in years to come. I now watch a little league cricket but one can’t help reflect on how standards compare over the last 50 years. There is no doubt that, as in the first class game, the fielding is infinitely better. I also believe that the current day tailender is a much better batsman than in previous decades, a reflection of current coaching. However I am not convinced that the top batsmen nowadays are any better than their counterpart. Yes, they make higher individual scores but the wickets are completely different – paid groundsmen with covers v voluntary groundsmen preparing uncovered wickets. In my opinion it is harder to compare the bowling. Bowlers learnt to use the conditions which tested batsmen and with no restriction on how many overs an individual could bowl, bowlers got on top and stayed on top. The league is to be congratulated on what has been achieved over these 50 years. When I started town clubs ran two or three teams. Now we have clubs with five or six teams playing Saturday league cricket. I hope everyone enjoys their league cricket as much as I did.

The 1973 Revolution

Vince Ferrigno, now 80, was captain of Watford Town and a central participant in the group which decided to form a breakaway league in 1973. He recalls the events surrounding that momentous decision. Most of the senior clubs never treated the Herts Competition seriously, mainly because you had to play only seven or eight fixtures to qualify for a position in the league table. The situation became serious in the 1972/73 when it was proposed by the Herts Competition committee that new leagues would be formed, based on the results of the 1973 season. Fixture lists would have to be adjusted to accommodate the participants, demolishing overnight the years of work by clubs in building up strong fixture lists, based on playing the top clubs in their area. Tony Puncher of Sawbridgeworth was the main mover in the formation of a new Herts League. He approached me at the Competition AGM to express his concerns at the proposal and suggested an alternative approach. He had done some early days computing and had come up with a list of 11 or 12 top clubs who (bar one or two alterations) all played each other and therefore could form the nucleus of the new league, without too much disruption. We arranged a meeting for a small group at Sawbridgeworth. In addition to Tony and myself, the attendees were Les Wingrove (Barnet) and Martin Sutcliffe and Trevor Morley (both Letchworth). We all agreed that the principal of a Herts League based on Tony’s formula was worth a go and arranged to meet in a months’ time. At that following meeting Tony had recruited Radlett and consequently Fred Taylor came on board - our future Chairman. It was agreed that we should each contact three or four nearby clubs, mine being West Herts, Hemel Hempstead, Berkhamsted and Tring, to appraise them of the proposals. All the clubs contacted obviously had different agendas amongst their members, eg my own club had a breakaway group of players who only wanted traditional ‘friendly’ club cricket. Eventually, all the clubs we had contacted agreed to join, so the decision was taken to launch the Herts League in the 1974 season. The big attraction for all the clubs was that their fixture lists remained pretty much in place. League fixtures would be played on a Saturday or Sunday from May to September, wherever they fell in their existing fixture lists. There would also be no relegation. As an aside, one of the bonuses of having Fred Taylor as Chairman was that, as he lived in London, he would host our meetings over dinner at the Cricketers’ Club, just off Baker Street. Memorable evenings! Unfortunately, Tony Puncher’s work took him away from Hertfordshire, so he could only watch from a distance how his formative ideas were developing. Evidence of our success came a season or so later, when the Thames Valley clubs followed our format in the formation of their own league. We did have a meeting with the Herts Competition but no agreement could be reached, so the new Herts League was up and running and I believe from these small beginnings it went from strength to strength. 182


Which are the Top Teams?

Cricket loves its statistics and we have taken the stats available from the two eras of the Herts League (1974-1993; 1994-2017) to work out which teams have been the most successful. This always means 1st XIs playing at the top end of the league (based on the methodology described below), not the most successful club. The merit table for the 20 years of the former Bryan Herts League shows some major changes compared to the 24 seasons of the current Saracens League. Only a handful of those now enjoying Premier Division success were also among the top dogs in the previous era. Surprisingly, none of the top five in the period up to 1993 could repeat their success in the current era. Among the ever-presents, only Bishop’s Stortford, Hertford, Radlett and Hemel Hempstead are in the top 10 in both tables, plus a ‘qualified’ entry for North Mymms who were latecomers (in 1985) to the elite group which formed the 18 strong Bryan Herts League.

To see how all teams performed, not just 1st XIs, go to the web site www.hertsleague.co.uk where a complete spreadsheet of data has been condensed to provide a meaningful table of the teams which have competed for 10 or more seasons. For those wondering about the methodology, the 1994-2017 table uses the hierarchy of the league, plus the Home Counties League, recording the finishing position of each team and weighting that performance within all the divisions. The team that won the top division gets 1 point, second 2 points etc all the way down to the bottom team of the lowest division, in any year. Adjustments have been made for the Home Counties years and other changes in our structure. So those at the top of the table are the teams which earned the fewest points. To qualify for inclusion, a minimum number of 10 years of participation in the League has been applied, to produce a meaningful table (similar to requirements for the annual batting averages). This is a very similar process to the table for 74-93 from a much simpler era when there were just 18 clubs in the 1st XI table. The resulting table is simply an aggregate of the finishing positions, divided by the number of years in the league

Brian Collins Remembers

Brian Collins will always be remembered as a top player and top administrator. Playing for Hertfordshire, Brian took 363 wickets in the Minor Counties Championship – including a best of 8 for 7! He served on the League committee, initially representing Berkhamsted, from 1977, becoming League Chairman in 1983 and President in 1994, finally retiring in 1996. The Hertfordshire Cricket League has many fond memories for me. Having played cricket in my teenage years at GNAA, then a sports club for the Great Northern Railway company in Enfield (now known as Holtwhites Trinibis), followed by a year at Cheshunt, I moved with my new wife to Berkhamsted and joined Berkhamsted CC in 1963. All the cricket was then friendly, so called, with most being fierce local rivalries played home and away in the season. Soon after I moved, Tom Austin at Hitchin was canvasing opinion around the main town clubs with a view of starting a cricket league. The Hertfordshire competition was formed, which was in those early years a little farcical really, as you continued to play the clubs you already played but they counted as points in the Competition. Soon, the senior clubs, led by Tony Puncher of Sawbridgeworth and Vince Ferrigno of Watford Town, formed the Hertfordshire League consisting of the senior and top clubs. Dear Fred Taylor of Radlett was the first Chairman. Fred was a great guy, a lover of traditional cricket and no mean cricketer but not a lover of league cricket and he often reminded us so! Despite this the League was very successful from the first year. It was competitive and slowly expanded, with many players in the League putting themselves in prime position for selection for Minor Counties representation. I had been a thorn in Fred’s side, always in his ear as some of us wanted to see the League expand and develop and in 1983 Fred stood down and I took over as Chairman. I was very fortunate to have a great committee, especially Richard Bayliss who was Secretary throughout my tenure. One thing that Richard and I, together with other forward-thinking committee members, wanted to see was integration of the Hertfordshire League with the Hertfordshire Competition, with promotion and relegation between divisions. The Herts League sides were not easily convinced, the main reason being their possible relegation from the top division, which was to become the Premier Division. Looking at the makeup of the divisions now, some may well say that was justified! After this rocky ride the two cricket leagues amalgamated in 1994, into the The Hertfordshire Cricket League. The Hertfordshire Minor Counties Committee supported the move, as it gave all cricketers and cricket clubs playing in the League the chance to develop, be it a village or small town club, each having the same opportunity. This certainly has been the case, as history shows us. I was fortunate to play minor counties cricket for Hertfordshire over a 20 year period, although mainly in the 1970s, and club cricket with Berkhamsted until mid 80s, before I moved to St Albans and I finished my playing days at Leverstock Green. Having retired to Poole in Dorset I now play bowls which I love and would recommend to cricketers ending their more active sport life. I watch local cricket, sometimes Hampshire and often England at the Aegis Bowl. Time moves on and friendships fade but I still remember fondly my adversaries and colleagues from those successful days. I am proud to have been part of Hertfordshire’s cricket history and wish the Hertfordshire Cricket League continued success, both on and off the field. I will this evening raise my glass to you and all my old cricketing pals. Good health guys. 184


A Remarkable Performance

Among Brian’s many wonderful performances, this was probably the most remarkable, playing for the League’s representative team in the Club Cricket Conference Inter-League Competition.

To England via the Herts League

Steven Finn is probably our most successful ‘home grown’ cricketer in the current era. He made his Test debut in 2010 and the same year became ICC Emerging Player of the Year. He has since won 36 England Test caps, taking 125 wickets and played for his country in 69 ODIs and 21 T20 internationals. A Middlesex player since 2005, Steven has taken 522 first-class wickets to the end of 2017. Here he reflects on his introduction to cricket and development as a fast bowler with Herts League clubs. I spent my childhood around Herts League cricket. My father, Terry, who many reading this will know, was a fearsome left arm fast bowler. My earliest memories are of being pushed around Watford Town CC in my pushchair by my mum, Diana, or anyone one who would spare me the time. This is where my passion and love for the game came from. The club was a hub of activity for playing and non-playing members to come down and share experiences. Winning together and losing together as a club. These values have been instilled in me from the very beginning and have led me to be able to appreciate them at a professional level. This is where my cricketing development started. Chucking a cricket ball that was way too big for me around the outfield after the day’s play. Trying to convince anyone to face up to me until it got too dark. Even then we’d give it a good go. As I continued on my path through youth cricket I was helped along the way by some amazing people. It is only when you are older and slightly wiser that you realise what these people have sacrificed to make it possible for you to learn the game. Without these people cricket would be far worse off. Some of the fondest memories of my life are from going down to Langleybury on a Sunday morning and being able to practise cricket with my friends. The atmosphere at the club was something special because there was a shared passion for the game. I remember being coached by Eddie Gunning, Lee Kirby and David Williams from the age of 8 through to playing in the first team when I was 14/15. Honing the basic skills of the game in a fun way that gave all of us a solid foundation from which to explore and learn the game. The sentiment of going to practice on a Sunday and having fun with your friends is something that you constantly try to remind yourself of, once you play the sport professionally. I will frequently try and take myself back to the shed at the bottom of the third XI pitch and reconnect with the young boy that played the game with an innocence and freedom that can become so lost. The importance of the people who teach children the fundamental skills of the game can be underestimated. I know that because I was taught well when I was younger and I was able to adapt and create my own style around that. Without the basic skills, there is no foundation to work with. It is a fine line though, because it would be such a shame to see a player’s individualities coached out of them. (We are guilty of this from the bottom to the top of the game). It is often the people with quirkiness 186


about them that will progress to the next level and it would be sad to lose a potentially exciting talent because they were different and didn’t conform to the perceived norm. Playing men’s cricket at an early age was invaluable and I attribute my accelerated development through my teens to this experience. As I said earlier, I played my first game of 1st XI cricket for Langleybury at 14/15 years old, so I had to learn quickly to compete against men who were stronger, more experienced and better cricketers than me. I think that if you were to ask a lot of elite level cricketers, they would say that having to compete with men in league cricket, taking them out of their comfort zone, was something that stood them in good stead when they played the professional game. Being exposed to these experiences definitely made me a better player and better equipped to handle the pressure when an old county professional was trying to smash me out of the park. For this reason I decided to make a switch to West Herts in 2007. I was 18 and needed to play the highest level of cricket available to me in the area. Home Counties division two east. Here I was thrown in to a team that had ex professionals, excellent minor county cricketers and guys who had been consistently successful in club cricket. As well as a high quality overseas player in Neal Parlane. It was a tough decision to leave my boyhood club, but I made the decision for purely cricketing reasons. I wanted to develop faster. I had to earn these guys’ respect, and there was a pressure to perform. It was a step up in class again but being exposed to these challenges as a young man helped me gather experience of situations that I could take into my professional career. I’m a big believer in letting young players play, make mistakes and learn from them. That is the best and most effective way of learning and club cricket in Hertfordshire is definitely a place where young players can do this. That summer I made my championship debut for Middlesex against Gloucestershire at Bristol. I did well and have been fortunate enough to make a career of something I love. My development as a youngster had a big part to play in this. I hope that, in the future, more young players from the Herts League are able to follow their dream and play the game professionally and have a great time along the way.

The Overseas View - Shane Burger

Many players from overseas have been recruited by Herts League clubs, which strengthens their club and their teams and in return helps in the development of a young cricketer. An outstanding example is Shane Burger, a South African who scored over 10,000 runs and took over 400 wickets for Radlett. Back home, Shane went on to become South Africa “Proteas” A assistant coach which toured Australia (2015/16), when he also picked his country’s Coach of the Year award. He is now the National Academy (SA) assistant coach. Shane talks about the importance of his years in the Herts League I arrived at Radlett in April 2004 where, unbeknown to me at the time, my 12-year journey with one club was just starting. My initial intentions were to do only one season overseas and then return and continue my professional career in South Africa, with the Lions Franchise, based in Johannesburg. Over 12 years at the club I found myself living in various scenarios and locations which included a married couple, a bachelor, my own flat sharing with various other countryman and not to forget the Cat and Fiddle (pub). I was issued with a bicycle in my first year and was upgraded with various vehicles over the next 11 years. Replacing Dave Houghton as the overseas player at Radlett was a daunting task to say the least and as a 21-year-old at the time I would be expected not only to perform on the field but also carry out duties as director of coaching and a few other responsibilities. In my first year I just wanted to impress and do as much as I possibly could to gain everybody’s trust and try make a difference wherever I could. After returning for a few years my ambitions changed into wanting to leave a legacy. My time on the field with Radlett was filled with positives and negatives as I am sure is the case with most clubs. Winning trophies and titles was always something I have prided myself on as an individual and always tried to carry into teams, whether as a leader or just as a player and performer. For me, however, the most important achievement in the tenure was working with certain 7 and 8-year olds upon my arrival and then in my final few years seeing those very “youngsters” make their debuts for the 1st team. The impact of this will hopefully have left the club in a better place than when I arrived and for me that would be a legacy that would make me and my conscience happy. Life overseas away from home teaches you as a young aspiring professional to handle your own matters and basically grow up and mature far quicker than any other experience could teach you. Dealing with washing of your own clothes might sound a simple task but until you are faced with it only then do you realise how important it is to take responsibility in your life and get the simple chores done to be able to achieve the tougher ones. My experience with the club has no doubt made me the person I am today and has aided in where I am currently in life. My dream was always to play professional cricket and after that become a coach who can guide younger players. I feel I have achieved this and I have Radlett and Herts cricket to thank for the grounding they gave me, teaching me how to deal with the challenges and pressures, which ultimately prepared me for my future. I can’t put a value on the memories and the friends I have made and I will treasure these for the rest of my life. Words cannot express the gratitude and thanks to everyone who played a part in my 12-year journey. As a result, my heart is in a happy place. I count Hertfordshire and more importantly Radlett as my home away from home and I will always feel this way Shane Burger 188


To the First-Class Game.... and Back Again.....

Long-time League Statistician, Richard White, who also wrote the season reviews for the handbook, until 2012, takes a look back at some of the players who have graced the first-class game as well as playing their cricket in Hertfordshire at some stage. His personal reminiscences include a mix of English qualified players and some of the many overseas players brought in by Herts League clubs and who have performed at a higher level, ‘back home’. (This is an edited version of an article you can see on the League web site. Details at the end). The 2017 cricket season saw me reach a personal milestone in my scoring career as I passed 1,500 first matches for Sawbridgeworth. Since I started in 1984, I have seen over 200 players who can legitimately claim to have played first class cricket. Many of these achieved this status playing university cricket, mainly for Oxford and Cambridge and also for the likes of Durham and Loughborough who were given first class status in more recent years. This round-up, however, will concentrate on the international players I have seen in Hertfordshire plus other notable individuals who left a lasting impression. So in no particular order...... Mark Ilott was a player I saw at either end of his professional career. First as a 15 year-old in 1986 when he took just one wicket against my team, before making a slightly bigger impact in 1988, again taking just one wicket but striding out at number 11 to face the final ball with the scores level and promptly hitting the winning run. Later that year, he began a distinguished 14 year career for Essex, for whom he made 192 first class appearances (633 wickets) and 185 in List A (limited overs) matches, taking a further 232 wickets. He played the first of his five Tests for England in the 1993 Ashes series (12 wickets in total). It would be another 20 years before I saw him play again in club cricket, when he took 5-53 for Potters Bar in the 2008 Home Counties Premier League Also making his England debut in the 1993 Ashes was Peter Such, who took 6-67 in the first Test at Old Trafford, before winning another 10 caps in the next six years. He made over 300 first-class appearances between 1982 and 2001 and it was 2009 he turned out for Totteridge Millhillians for a Herts County Cup second round tie. Roland Butcher played for Middlesex between 1974 and 1990, and was the first black player to represent England, featuring in three Test matches against the mighty West Indies on their ill-fated tour of the Caribbean in early 1981. After his retirement from the first-class game, he spent several seasons at Stevenage in the 1990s, including taking on the captaincy. Two years later he made a surprise appearance for Sawbridgeworth Sunday 2nd XI at Matching Green which was remarkable for his score of 109 off 46 balls which included 62 off two overs - hitting hit his first five balls for six, with the last ball of the over narrowly falling to clear the boundary rope. Steven Finn was born on 4 April 1989, which meant the young, gangly, tall fast bowler was 33 days past his 16th birthday when he lined up for his league debut for newly promoted Langleybury against Sawbo on the opening day of the 2005 Home Counties Premier League season. He took a wicket in a brace of six over spells, finishing with figures of 12-5-25-2. Within a month Finn became Middlesex’s youngest ever first-class debutant, playing against Cambridge UCCE. He made his Test debut in Bangladesh in 2010 and played the first three Tests of England’s triumphant Ashes tour the following winter. Owais Shah played 71 limited overs internationals and six Test matches for England between 2001 and 2009 but by 2014, he was playing for Welwyn Garden City in the newly formed Herts Premier League in addition to his role as a T20 specialist for Hampshire.

Owais Shah 189


In May 2015, he played a major part in what I now regard as my favourite league game of all-time. He helped rescue WGC from 134-6 to make 288-7 from their 50 overs, scoring an unbeaten 127 from 94 balls. In reply, my team looked dead and buried at 116-6 but mainly through Alex Axon’s 101 off 80 deliveries and Ben Waring’s 56, the last over began with four needed and one wicket to fall. Alex Chalker bowled a leg side wide and the batsmen ran three and an extraordinary victory was completed. Shah never failed to reach fifty in the four occasions he played against us, scoring 360 runs at an extraordinary average of 180. William Porterfield and Kevin O’Brien would go on to star for Ireland in both the 2007 and 2011 World Cups, with the latter scoring the fastest century in the competition’s history (50 balls) in an extraordinary win over England. In 2004 they both lined up for Millhillians in the Home Counties Premier League and were in the team which collapsed to 16 for 5 in the first seven overs, against Sawbridgeworth, with Porterfield the only player in their top five not to register a duck. A fluctuating game ended in a draw! In the return fixture the Irish pair were nowhere to be seen in the Millhillians’ line-up but it did include a 20 year old West Indian and future captain Darren Sammy, He who later appeared in 38 Tests, 126 limited-overs and 65 T20 internationals between 2007 and 2017. Early in the game, Daniel Hull despatched Sammy for a huge six but Sammy exacted revenge, one of his five wickets (for 55 runs). He later scored a quickfire 39 off 40 balls. Kiwi Rob Nicol joined Canterbury’s state side in the 2009-10 season after eight seasons with Otago. He made the move after scoring a record-breaking 1,181 runs for Hitchin, which saw them promoted to the Home Counties Premier League for the only time in their history. His international commitments restricted him to just four appearances for the Lucas Lane outfit in June 2010, the second of which came against Sawbridgeworth when he scored a century before lunch. He represented New Zealand in two Tests, 22 ODIs and 21 T20 games, becoming only the second Kiwi player (and seventh overall) to score a one-day century on debut. Monty Panesar took 167 wickets in 50 Tests for England between 2006 and 2013. His two appearances for Luton Town and Indians against Sawbridgeworth came in contrasting games in my club’s history. In 2003 where he batted number six, scoring 14 and then he claimed an early wicket before it rained and Panesar finished with figures of 2-83 in a drawn game. It would be another 13 years before we encountered him again, when we visited Totteridge Millhillians, having not won a league game in the previous 12 weeks we recorded a 38-run victory and his return was a meagre 2-40 in 10 overs. He bowled in tandem on that day with John Emburey, who claimed 147 Test match wickets for England between 1978 and 1995. His classical action remained exactly had I remembered it from all those years ago - even though his first delivery went down the leg side for five wides!. Shane Thomson was St Albans’ overseas player for the last three seasons of the 1980s, before going on to play 19 Test matches and 56 limited-overs internationals for New Zealand in the next six years. In 1997 he retired from the professional game at the age of 28. The all-rounder finished on the winning side in all three games he played against Sawbridgeworth, which coincidentally were all decided by the same margin of six wickets. In 1987 he memorably scored 94 not out off just 62 balls (10 fours and seven sixes), the sort of explosive innings now associated with T20 cricket but very rarely seen in this era. One of the greatest skills in cricket is the capability for a fast bowler to knock over the tail and one of the finest exponents of the art I’ve seen was all-rounder Kaushalya Weeraratne. The Sri Lankan all-rounder was the overseas player at Potters Bar in 2006 and 2007 and went on 190


to represent his country in 15 limited-overs internationals and five T20 matches. His two league seasons yielded 1,246 runs and 55 wickets in 33 league games and he finished on the winning side in all five games he played against Sawbridgeworth. In 2007 he produced one of most impressive seam bowling displays I’ve seen. He returned his best figures for Bar of 13.2-7-27-8, which included a devastating second spell of 6-11 in 7.2 overs. If I had a pick a team of the best opposition players I’ve seen in the last 15 years, one of the first names on that list would be Neal Parlane, who gave outstanding service to West Herts between 2005 and 2010. In 99 league appearances he scored 4,708 runs at 58.12, including 14 hundreds. In the first match I saw him play, he top scored with 95 (out of a total of 267-6), which was more than all of my team combined as we were skittled for just 92. Statistically, Neal’s best season was 2008 when scored over 1,000 runs, reaching that target against Sawbo in the penultimate game and the following year we lost by 10 wickets in just 14.4 overs with Parlane smashing 74 not out from just 46 balls. He played 103 first class matches in New Zealand’s Plunket Shield for Canterbury between 1996 and 2011, scoring 5,602 runs at 35.91 plus over 2,500 runs in 108 List A matches. One of the best and most talked about players of his generation. To say former Pakistan A batsman Shazhad Malik made an immediate impact as Langleybury’s overseas player in 2005 would be a huge understatement. He scored hundreds in his first three league matches following his late arrival in mid-June but thanks to a stunning slip catch he went for 12 as his side collapsed from 38-3 to 120 all out and we raced to a 10 wicket victory before tea. Two years later he despatched an unbeaten 110 off 53 balls against an attack that included Andrew Richardson and Ryan Cunningham, who both played first class cricket for Jamaica. His most extraordinary innings was 403 in a Bertie Joel Cup fixture against the Middlesex Tamils - in just 138 balls.

Shazhad Malik

Richard Smith represented Trinidad and Tobago in 70 first class matches between 1990-91 and 2001-02 and was a team-mate of a certain Brian Charles Lara. I had not previously heard of him until we travelled to Watford for the last game of our 1996 campaign where he produced one of the most extraordinary innings I’ve ever seen. He didn’t hit one ball in the air, striking 16 boundaries in an unbeaten 133 from just 141 balls. We lost by nine wickets! Daan van Bunge represented the Netherlands in the 2007 World Cup but made headlines for the wrong reasons as he was hit for six sixes in one over by South Africa’s Herschelle Gibbs. Three years earlier he was plying his trade at Hoddesdon and against Sawbridgeworth he scored a majestic 92 from 91 balls before being caught at deep long off by a fielder I don’t think he realised was there! Other notable former first class players I’ve witnessed have included Gareth Berg (Stevenage/ Radlett – Middlesex/Hampshire), Shane Burger (Radlett – Gauteng), Nigel Felton (Berkhamsted– Somerset/Northamptonshire), David Ligertwood (Berkhamsted – Surrey/Durham), Bill Merry (Stevenage – Middlesex), Andy Needham (Watford – Surrey/Middlesex), Wayne Osman (St Albans/Hitchin – Northamptonshire), Steve Plumb (Bishop’s Stortford/Saffron Walden – Essex), David Surridge (Bishop’s Stortford/Hertford – Gloucestershire) and Michael Voss (Radlett – Transvaal). I can add Danny Wilson (Essex) and Ryan Cunningham (Jamaica) who I have been privileged to see play for my club Sawbridgeworth. Richard M.

Then and Now

Cricket at club level has changed considerably since 1968. Sadly, few records exist from that first league season. During the subsequent 50 seasons there were two milestone years from which we can judge the progress of league cricket (and knock-out cricket) if we look at a snapshot of those intervening years. They were 1974, the first season of the breakaway Herts League and 1994, the ‘reunification’ season which launched the Hertfordshire League in which we play today. Here are a few random facts, taken from the handbooks for those years. (Pages/ paragraphs refer to handbooks for that year) 1974

30 Years of Results!

I first played cricket at the age of 11. In 1975, on advice of the sports master at school, I joined Leverstock Green Cricket Club (LGCC), playing in the Under 15 Junior team. I made my senior debut in 1978 against Hatfield on the lovely ground in front of Hatfield House. I have held positions of 1st XI Captain, Chairman and Club Captain. Back in the 80’s Leverstock Green was a member of the Hertfordshire Cricket Competition, Group One and I attended a meeting where they were asking for two representatives to sit on the Management Committee. As I sat quietly a voice from behind me shouted “Woody will do it”. So, in 1985 I was elected to the Management Committee thanks to Brian Shepherd, one of our current top umpires and still a friend! I enjoyed the opportunity to be involved with running the Competition and soon started looking at ways we could improve the running of the League. A year later I was elected to the post of Assistant to the Secretary, who was then Charles Holroyd and started to get involved with the production of the results. By 1988 I was producing the weekly results newsletter and posting it out to all the clubs and newspapers. Results were sent in on cards and transferred to a Cobol program I wrote at work that made up the tables and I then printed it out on my work’s best printer. We made a big jump in 1990 to a number of results secretaries receiving the results via answerphone messages. Clubs had to report the result on the day of the match to an answerphone. After moving jobs I carried on using the facilities at my original company remotely (it’s good when your Dad looks after the computer room!) and then drove Liz, my wife of only a few months, to the office to print out and copy them onto Competition headed paper. She still worked for the company, but after a few weeks got hauled into her boss’s office to be asked why she was in the office every Sunday copying documents. Apparently a security guard reported her for copying company secrets! We then had to find a better solution for the next season. I purchased a computer and the Competition sourced a second hand photocopier so I could copy the documents at home. The photocopier made a handy coffee table! The production process peaked at the distribution of 154 copies of the results and tables news sheet. Each news sheet consisted of 2 or 3 pages, printed, put in envelopes, addressed, stamped and posted on the Sunday morning following the round of matches. Liz was very much involved with this process too, I would never have been able to do all I do without her unending support. I even had my young daughters helping stick stamps on envelopes. In 1994 the Herts Competition merged with the senior league in Hertfordshire to form the Hertfordshire Cricket League. In 1996 I officially became the Results and Fixtures Secretary, a position I still hold today. In 1999 I saw the opportunity to improve the communication to all member clubs through the development of a League website. The initial site just held a small amount of information about the League and the results/tables. As better technology became available we reduced postage costs by sending half the newsletters by automated fax from the PC. Over the next 16 years the site was enhanced to contain records of all matches played and league tables since the formation of the League in 1994 and details of the founder Leagues. The site also held details of the 13,000+ registered players, umpires appointments, directions to grounds, averages and other statistics and A typical morning in the Wood household, League admin on acted as a valuable resource for all member the table, teas bought and kit ready! clubs and interested parties. 194


From the early 2000’s each home team in all the League’s divisions telephoned one of five divisional results lines. We employed the use of an automated answer service to take the results. This stopped the odd club ringing someone’s home at 6am (that club was fined for a late result!). A team of five results collators, including myself, listened to the messages and entered the results into a proforma spreadsheet. I then collated these spreadsheets at around 10.30pm each Saturday evening. I designed and developed a computer program that calculates the tables from the results taking into account the League's complex points system. The results and tables were published via email to 900 subscribers worldwide, including a number of ex-pats and overseas players, and uploaded to the www. hertsleague.co.uk website. By the mid-2000’s the site had over 3,000,000 hits each season, with a peak of 3,600 unique visitors on a single day. The results process took about 2 hours on a Saturday night to complete and I spent 4-5 hours each week during the season updating or modifying the website. I was very honoured to receive, from the ECB, a Natwest OSCA (Outstanding Services to Cricket Award) in 2005 during a presentation dinner at Lord’s. I later also received an ICC medal for services to cricket during their centenary year. During the 2008 season I decided there must be a better, more automated way to report and collate the results. I designed a process of teams sending their results via Text Message to an SMS provider. This message was relayed to our website where some software updated the results and tables automatically. The results could now be seen appearing in real time on the website using a mobile phone. This was a massive leap forward and allowed the results collators to have their Saturday nights back! The software was developed by a company in India and enhanced over the next 8 years as points systems changed. The solution was also licensed to the Beds League for their results which they used until last season. Most people found the reporting process easy, but a few had issues with the codes and formatting of the SMS. The natural Mike and Liz Wood with the progression was to develop a website designed to work on a NatWest ECB OSCA in 2006 PC, phone or tablet and complement it with a mobile App to report results. I designed the site and App and with the help of a company based in Spain developed a new site just in time for the start of the 2017 season. It took quite a lot of time and effort to get right, partly because the developers had never heard of cricket before! A key benefit of the site is that the whole process on a match day can be automated including sending a reminder to the team captain 15 minutes before the deadline if the result has not been received. These reminders extend to Facilities and Umpire Marking so reducing the number fines the committee has to impose. For 2018 the site has been enhanced further with reporting of Facilities and Umpires Marks now possible through the Apps. Umpire fines will also be added automatically and the newsletter formatted without any intervention. So after 30 years of spending hours on the results it can all be done without any addition manual work. The ultimate succession planning! Of course, there is still lots to do including generating the fixtures and I am very grateful to John Northall who has taken over this task over the past 5 seasons. There is also the collating and typesetting the League Handbook and Match Day book, providing these to the printer in camera ready pdf format which takes up most of February and March. I have really enjoyed the last 30 years and, although not everyone is pleased all the time, I receive many complimentary notes from the clubs. I just need to keep thinking of the next enhancement! All thoughts welcome as always.

Umpiring - A Continuing Success Story

Umpires and scorers play an important part in cricket and have played their part in the development and evolution of our league cricket. For the first 25 years, a remarkably precise half of the life of league cricket in the county, umpires were provided by the participating clubs. Those clubs were responsible for ensuring that they had a suitably qualified and capable umpire for each match. Inevitably, as with all situations where a club provides its own umpire, there were some concerns about competence and impartiality at times but in general and most of the time it worked well enough. By 1993, the Hertfordshire League had grown to cover a total 18 clubs. In that year the League decided to establish an Umpires’ Panel for the first time, to provide neutral umpires for all First Eleven matches. Initially this panel comprised 32 people, drawn primarily from the participating clubs. The following year, 1994, saw the merger of the Bryan League and the Farren Competition to form the new Hertfordshire League which exists today. The panel continued to provide umpires to all Premier Division 1st XI matches: 18 umpires each week. In the following season the match rules were amended so that Panel umpires were provided for all 1st XI matches in both the Premier Division and Division One. To meet the additional demand for umpires, the Panel was increased to 42. The next significant milestone was the launch by the ECB in 2000 of the new Premier League structure. The SHCL became part of the new Home Counties Premier Cricket League (HCPCL), with our Premier Division becoming one of the two feeder leagues. The HCPCL established its own Umpires’ Panel and a number of the best umpires in the SHCPL were invited on to that panel. At the same time the SHCL rules changed to require Panel umpires to be provided for Premier Division and divisions 1 & 2: 20 matches and 40 umpires per week. The panel was increased to 65 people, both to cover the extra matches and to provide umpires to the new HCPCL Panel. In 2002 the Premier division became the HCPL Division 2 East and came under the control of the HCPL. As a result more of our best umpires transferred to the HCPL panel, with some continuing to stand in the SHPCL. The panel provided umpires to divisions 1 and 2, with 30 umpires covering 15 matches each Saturday. It was at around this time that the panel came under pressure. Insufficient umpires were being recruited and the HCPL was putting a heavy demand on umpires from Hertfordshire. For several years the viability of the panel came under close scrutiny and there were some matches each season in Division 2 where one of the sides was required to provide an umpire to cover shortfalls. Thereafter, with improved recruitment, the situation slowly recovered. In 2010 a major rule change was carried: with the goal of raising standards of umpiring a requirement was introduced for trained or qualified umpires in all matches in divisions 3 to 6. During 2013 moves were begun to establish our own Premier league and this culminated in a vote being passed that saw all SHPLC clubs return for the 2014 season. Two new divisions, a new Premier League and Championship, were created. This lifted the number of matches covered by panel umpires to 50 across the top five divisions. That we have been able to satisfy this increased demand and provide some umpires to sides in divisions 3A/B and 4A/B reflects the current healthy state of umpiring in Hertfordshire. 196


Managing the panel, making the appointments and analysing the marks is a challenge and one that has grown as the size of the panel and the number of matches covered has grown. Amongst the key tasks are to seek to have the best umpires for each match and to identify and encourage umpires to reach their potential. For the first decade from its inception in 1993 Roger Abraham ran the panel, soon supported by Peter Yates and then later by Dudley Eckworth. From 2003 responsibility passed to me, assisted from last season by Anthony Levy. Currently we make in excess of 900 appointments every season. Over the years we have been fortunate to have had some excellent umpires, some of whom have progressed to the Minor Counties and County 2nd XI level. There are many I could name, familiar and popular faces that have put a lot into SHPCL cricket. Amongst these are John Ilott, Nick Hall, Alan Price and Dudley Warnford, and more recently, Tim Caldicott. Many will remember Allen Wells who umpired over many decades and was kind enough to provide some memories to assist with this article. I must finish on a more cautious note. Although we have been successful in Hertfordshire there are many leagues and parts of the country where numbers are in decline and increasingly matches are being played with one or no non-playing umpires. It is vital that clubs continue to encourage and nurture umpiring: it is a great way to see the game at close hand and contribute to the continued health of both the league and the game. Peter Hinstridge Chairman, Hertfordshire Association of Cricket Officials

The standard and organisation of umpiring has improved considerably over the lifetime of the Herts League and those other essential officials, scorers, have also seen major advances in recent years, thanks to advances in technology and training. ACO Regional Scorer Officer for East Region and Harpenden stalwart, Mike Arnold, is currently at the forefront of scorer development, regionally, for the Association of Cricket Officials and is pictured here opening a seminar on the ECB's latest scoring software, held at Lord's. 197


Facilities Reporting through the years….

I was asked as the current holder of the title of Facilities Co-Coordinator to take a look back at how facilities have improved and how things have moved on since the early days, well the 1990s.

Mark Shepherd co-ordinates the Facilities on the League Committee

The facilities marking came in during the very early 1990s when England were making more changes than the average Premier League manager and beer was a £1 bottle. Alas it wasn’t all sunshine and raves for many cricket venues. Tired and smelly changing rooms, showers that would keep the keenest of medical scientists busy with the delights that lay on the shower floor and it was a delight if a team lower down the structure had a sightscreen, let alone two.

It was the brainchild of my old dad, Brian Shepherd who was sick and tired of going to some of these venues who thought it would be an idea for visiting clubs to mark their day out, on a printed card on the outfield, sightscreens, wicket, toilets, showers and changing rooms. Whilst it was done at a trickle clubs soon became embarrassed that their facilities weren’t just viewed as ‘character building’ and started to get their houses in order. As the 90’s progressed, clubs were starting to invest in more equipment for the wickets, which saw better cricket, quicker scoring and when 200 was no longer deemed as a total that frightened the ‘wotsits’ out of a team batting second. Teams lower down the structure were encouraged to invest in sightscreens where in the previous years, batters would have to squint to see the ball emerge from the trees or worse lobbed up in the direction of a late setting sun which caused more angst than the bowler itself. The changing facilities were slowly improved, albeit the 90’s cricket coffins that could have hid a body they were that big made even the biggest of areas look a tad bijou. As the league got bigger, more and more clubs, with numerous elevens, entered into league cricket but with the new influx, certain criteria had to be met before they signed up for League cricket. Nowadays the criteria is far stricter. The Premier League clubs now have to have decent covers, which enables more cricket to be played. In the late 80’s 90’s games were called off on a Friday due to a lack of protection. That rarely, if ever happens in modern day cricket. Premier Leagues see umpires mark the grounds now so that there is now a balanced view on how the ground stands up for a game of cricket. These marks are sent to the ECB where they can evaluate and the league can see if the groundsmen need help, where grants are now readily available. Throughout the league pyramid, all 27 divisions see away captains mark their hosts on a home and away basis on pretty much the same scenario as the best part of 30 years ago. Even the perennial dumping ground of the scorebox are now marked and slowly those are starting to be a part of the clubs improvement plans, with many now electronic. 30 years ago, only Lord’s and Headingley were so. Don’t get me wrong, Rome wasn’t built in a day, but facilities are constantly improving. Cricket should be a welcoming place for all ages and an environment where families can enjoy the delights of the game in a pavilion that is clean, tidy and not cluttered with old netting, a slip cradle and dust that’s older than the pictures on the wall. Mark Shepherd 198


A Sponsor’s View - Farren & Sons Ltd

Returning to the seasons of 1991 – 93, I cajoled my senior business partner within our company, Farren & Sons Ltd, to allow me to sponsor the Herts Competition, filling in from a gap left by others, at short notice. In hindsight today, it appears a fairly paltry sum at the time and nothing like the sums now paid by our current sponsors. However, £3,000.00 some 27 years ago, with inflation since, was important to the continuance of my love, Hertfordshire cricket. At the time, I was personally responsible for the setting up of the ‘Facilities’ marking system and drove that through in Committee because I was fed up going to grounds where the wickets were poor and those offending clubs did little or nothing to improve their lot each year. Also, the variance in Clubhouse facilities was vast, some offering the very basic facility of poor teas. No excuses for that, just plain laziness. I also carried out the duties of Herts Fixture Secretary in the age prior to computers – everything was done manually but the fixtures were completed by an ‘independent draw method’ and out on time as would be expected. At the time, I was captaining my club’s second eleven at Potters Bar, still a decent league standard when you were turning out five elevens each Saturday and the reporting procedures were telephoned ‘back to base’ before commencing my entertainment duty with the opposition, win or lose, until closing time. This Brian Shepherd umpiring enjoyable past-time never happens any more. in the Herts League This was my personal commitment during the season. In those days, nobody took holidays during the season; they were committed to play cricket – no messing. I can remember, very fondly, one particular weekend when Potters Bar put out the same 1st and 2nd eleven for both Saturday and Sunday, save for just one change. Immense. That doesn’t happen anymore where even 1st XI’s cannot guarantee putting out their ‘best side’ even though ‘drinking vouchers’ are involved. This is why I pushed the majority shareholder of the company I worked for to sponsor the Herts Competition for those three years. I realise that it was only an infill until a more substantial sponsor was found but was so committed to see ‘my league’, my life, prosper and not go through a ‘sponsor-less’ period. My conscience can rest easy on that. My business partner and I had a falling out shortly after that and I walked out of the company in disgust at a seconds notice. Sitting on regular Committee, I had wonderful times with great friendship attached. Too many names to remember now so forgive me for missing anybody out but the sterling work of Woody, TJ, Charles Holroyd (God Bless his sole) and Barry Hellewell come to mind amongst many others. When gongs are given out willy-nilly, why are the likes of Woody and TJ not recognised for their efforts in sport? Forty years or more of solid commitment cannot just get swept under the carpet? Cricket in Hertfordshire was relatively strong at the time and I was totally committed in putting funds in, however meagre, to pay for the league’s running costs. With the coming of professionals and coaches in the most recent years, standards have risen enormously that help to entertain all and long may Hertfordshire cricket improve over the coming years. However, It must also come with personal enjoyment and above all with respect for your fellow cricketers – the Spirit of Cricket must reign supreme. Brian Shepherd 199


A Sponsor’s View - County Knockout

Furnell Transport helped to pioneer knockout cricket for the Herts League clubs, by becoming the sponsor of the first countywide competition, which started in 1986. In 1998 the sponsorship was taken on by another haulage company, Becker Transport of Stevenage. That support continued until 2006 and after three years without sponsorship, Readers took on the support of the County Cup.

Commenting on his decision to sponsor the first KO competition, Managing Director David Furnell said: “What better way of mixing business with pleasure than supporting the Herts League cup competition, with the final at Hemel Hempstead CC, where my company is based. During our 12 years of sponsorship, all of us at Furnell Transport enjoyed many a happy hour with our customers and suppliers, with our bank manager as well, watching some excellent games.”

A Sponsor’s View - Saracens RFC

In the first year of the new century The Herts League and Saracens RFC struck a landmark sponsorship deal. Now, 19 years later, perhaps it says everything that the sponsorship is still going strong and Saracens have twice been crowned European club champions! In the year 2000 handbook Saracens’ Managing Director, Tim Lawler, announced the new community partnership and described the excitement of being associated with a new sporting venture, “a crosssport partnership providing mutual benefit to both parties.”. He also revealed how it was “the energy, enthusiasm and record of innovation – characteristics that Saracens pride themselves in – that really attracted us to the association.” Tim talked about how Saracens would take great pride in being associated with all of the League’s activities, “especially those involving young players, centurions, 5-wicket takers and unsung heroes – all the people that really make it all happen.” He closed by emphasising how Saracens want to be an active partner in community sport. “We’d really like to work at making a difference,” he said. In 2004 Tim moved on from Saracens into a role where he could still make a difference, as Chief Executive of SportsAid. In the following article he reflects on the importance of partnerships in sport, at all levels, It is with great pleasure and pride that I write this piece. A pleasure because being involved with the good things that can happen in sport is why I work in sport; and pride, as I look at the continuation of the vision we shaped at Saracens to always reach out into the various communities in which the club might operate – the Saracens Hertfordshire Cricket League being a blue riband example. After seven tremendous years at Saracens, I took the opportunity to diversify a little and work in a multi-sport environment, by joining SportsAid. This national charity recognises and helps the next generation of Britain’s sporting talent and since 1976 has supported many of the most recognisable names in British sport. These range from Daley Thompson to Victoria Pendleton and more recently Mo Farah, Jessica Ennis-Hill, Adam Peaty, Tom Daley and Rebecca Adlington, to name but a few. Whilst rugby (and cricket, of course) remain close to my heart, it has been a wonderful experience to get to know a little more of many other sports, particularly those synonymous with the Olympic, Paralympic and Commonwealth Games. That prompts me to consider just how impressive it is to think that league cricket has been played in Hertfordshire for some 50 years. A solid shift indeed and all the more significant when one considers just how much has changed in life, let alone sport, since 1968. How did we get by without mobile phones? Or email? Or social media? Or Duckworth-Lewis and the TMO? Was there any sport on TV back then? I seem to have since watched some astonishing moments during the Mexico Olympic Games that year, so there must have been some coverage! Perhaps this serves to highlight the enduring and adaptable nature of sport. Sport is perhaps the ultimate meritocracy – for the most part, on any level, you get from it what you are prepared to put in. The many values we all cherish in sport of teamwork, enjoyment, common cause, trust, resilience, tenacity, ambition and so on are true across the ages and they endure and adapt for each generation. We can only call ourselves custodians of these things, not owners. They are our responsibility for the time we’re involved but then at some point, we need to pass them on in good or better shape to those who follow. Clearly, over 50 years, league cricket in Hertfordshire has delivered this responsibility and so we find ourselves marking this great milestone. I wish the best for everyone involved in cricket - and all sport - in Hertfordshire and I thank them for their commitment to being involved. The players, the coaches, the officials, the administrators, the sponsors, the spectators; it is an ecosystem to cherish and all are playing their part for future generations. As someone once said, the best things in life aren’t things – sport is about people. 201
