MDL team wins prestigous Rakesh Sethi trophy whilst U19 team wins County Finals

Congratulations to both our MDL team as they won the prestigous Rakesh Sethi Trophy on Sunday 6th September against the Harrow Hurricanes and our U19 team as they won their age group County Final on Sunday 13th September against Ealing .  

The Middlesex Development League (The MDL) aims to inspire young people to play the game competitively, and in the Spirit of Cricket.

The MDL was setup by Middlesex Cricket in 2012 to respond to the needs of clubs in relation to the development of younger players; providing a longer format than age group cricket to express their abilities, and to integrate more effectively into open age cricket. This is the first time that Eastcote CC has won this tournament.

Jim Fairbrother RIP

Eastcote Cricket Club is saddened to report the passing of our Vice President, Jim Fairbrother. For many years now Jim has probably been the club's No 1 supporter, he demonstrated this sustained and loyal support in so many ways and was a devoted enthusiast for our wonderful sport. He was a true gentleman and was much loved by all who knew him. His support was unwavering and without judgement. A totally lovely man.

The club sends sincere condolences to his daughter Helen and the rest of his lovely family.

Jim’s funeral is booked for 3.15 pm on Monday 3rd August at Breakspear crematorium. Due to current Covid restrictions and protocol, numbers will be limited for the service itself. A few long-standing members of the club including our president have been invited by the family. Unfortunately, many people from ECC will not be at the crematorium who would have been there for sure in normal times. However, Jim’s daughter Helen has said that it was Jim's wish for the cortege to pass along Southill Lane on its way there pausing briefly near the club. This will happen shortly after 2.30 pm and all are welcome to be there to say goodbye.

There will be a small gathering at the club, probably later in August attended by Helen, her husband Paul and children Holly and Mark. Additionally, and possibly in November if hopefully the current social restrictions are lifted, there will be a larger event at the club to celebrate Jim's life and his support and affection for the club. There will also be a bench to be placed at the ground as a lasting tribute.

Eastcote CC colts playing league cricket for other clubs

Eastcote CC colts playing league cricket for other clubs in Middlesex or any other county in the same season.

This has been mentioned many times before, and the stance from Eastcote CC has been clear and never changed, but it appears to still be a grey area for some, so please find clarification below.

As written by the Middlesex League, any colt who is registered to a club in the Middlesex League and has represented that club at least once in any age group, is NOT allowed to play for another club in Middlesex or any other county for that season. This is the official ruling, and any club who has a player that represents two or more clubs in 1 or more leagues will have all points deducted from them that were achieved whilst the player was involved.

Due to non-compliance of this rule by at least 2 of our colts, our U13A side and our U15A side have both been penalised and have both had points deducted. They now have both finished bottom of their leagues and will no longer be able to progress in their competitions. Both teams should have been playing in the final stages of their competitions with a view to reaching the finals, unfortunately this is no longer the case.

This is devastating news for the boys, the coaches and the club, and a situation I honestly never thought I would have to deal with.

As of today (05/08/19), the consequence for any player who represents another club, whilst being a member of Eastcote and to the detriment to Eastcote will have their membership terminated instantly and will no longer be eligible to represent Eastcote CC at any level. I cannot express my disappointment and frustration with this situation with words alone, and will be discussing with Paul Martin as to how we proceed.

I hope this now clarifies the situation, the club’s position and the leagues position. This is a rule that is out of our hands as a club, but one that we must adhere to as we are part of the Middlesex League.

Please do consider the consequences should you decide to allow your children to play for other clubs whilst being members of Eastcote.
