East Anglian Premier Cricket League - Registration

ECB / EAPL Registration Guidelines 2017

(Please find attached at the bottom of the page, the player registration regulations for 2017 season which have been devised by the ECB in consultation with the Home Office.)

Nothing has changed regarding the qualification of players to play ie:


- 9 of each side must be qualified to play for England (Category 1) or must have deemed Category 1 status.
- Each side can include 1 Category 3 player and I 3E Or each side can play 2 3E .
- One playing as a 3

However some significant changes have been madeby the Home Office this winter (2017) and I would draw your attention to the Home Office guidelines attached as an appendix. Stricter controls are now in place regarding the following categories.

- Standard Visitor Visa
- Tier 5 Youth Mobilty
- Tier 4 Student.

As there has been some abuse in the past not I might add in the EAPL, the ECB are under pressure from the Home Office to get things under control.

For 2017 season the following will apply:

- Category 3 Tier 5 Sporting and Creative;- Player must complete a Category 3 Form to be forwarded to League Secretary with Copy ECB endorsement and photo page of passport. Once received Registration will then be confirmed on Play-Cricket
