Fundraising for both the NHS & ECC

Current 1st XI cricketer Jehan Jeffrie (JJ) has set up a Just giving page for us to try raise some money for the NHS and the Club. The challenge for all of us is to contribute using or daily exercise slot to get to the North Pole. This is approximately 10,000km and we’re trying to complete this before the June 4th! To donate go here: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/ecc-northpole.

To track this let's all use Strava, free app that we can all download and use. I have set up a club so we can track top performers and the total distance we have all done over the period! Join using the link here: https://www.strava.com/clubs/650875. We can walk, Run or cycle to achieve the goal (f we are doing well we can adjust the target to get back from the North Pole). 

Will need as many of you as possible to achieve our goal! With 50 of us it would require 6.5km on average a day! So get your running shoes on, get your bikes out, remember every little helps! 

If you’ve got any questions let me know, happy to help get you set up on Strava as well. Hopefully we can all join in get fit and do our bit for the NHS/Club.

Thanks

JJ

 

P.S don’t forget to share on social media and with friends and family!

Umpire and Scoring Webinars

03 May 2020

The ECB have made the following courses free on line. They are ideal for anyone who is interested in scoring or umpiring, or just needs a refresher. The Basics of Umpiring would also be ideal for any parents who would like to better understand the laws of cricket.

The scoring and Basics of Umpiring course would also be ideal for colts who either wish to learn how to score, or to know the laws of the game better. 

“Basics of Umpiring” – This course is aimed at club umpires who just need to know the key laws and basic field craft and those players who umpire 5 or 10 overs at the weekend.

“Umpire Stage One” This course is designed to give an overview of the basic Laws of the game and how to apply them and introduce the principles of field craft and match management. This course is an ideal introduction for new club umpires, a refresher for existing umpires and the first step for those who aspire to umpire at higher levels.
