There will be no relegation from the East Anglian Premier League for the current 2017 season after Ketton CC were confirmed as Cambs & Hunts Tucker Gardener League Champions.

All of the 3 feeder league champions have declined the invite into the league for the 2018 season and therefore neither Horsford CC or Bury St Edmunds CC will be relegated.

18 Sep 2017 : Minor Counties Player Survey - September 2017

ECB and the Minor Counties Cricket Association are working together, looking at how and where Minor Counties Cricket supports the Cricket Unleashed strategy.

Part of the work is to understand how players in Minor Counties Cricket and in local Premier Leagues view the current cricket programme.

I am pleased to advise that the MCCA Player Survey is now ‘Live’ and has been sent directly to opted-in players on Play Cricket and to players via each MCCA Secretary – see below.


We will provide updates later in the year via the County Board Bulletin, Regional Meetings and the Recreational Assembly once a Project Group chaired by Board Member Martin Darlow has met to consider the results of the survey and other research that has been conducted
