The Committee welcomes you all to the introduction of this wonderful colourful concept of cricket played on grass root level. The cricketing project is called National Cricket League and now in our 6th year we can happily confirm that we have 64 amazing teams participating (NCL).
We started the project back in 2010, we introduced a concept in Twenty20 Cricket which was similar to our counties and international counter parts where players from grass root level had the experience in playing cricket in coloured uniforms and with a white cricket ball and also adding rules such as power play, fielding restrictions and other T20 rules. With the continuous success in 2011 which assisted the demands to grow and brought a lot more interest to the sport of cricket. After the amazing season we covered in 2011 we look forward to the 2012 season with some improvements for all players & fans. The committee has managed to accomplish something which has not been attempted before on grass root levels, in bringing the similarities of our International counterparts in adding a longer version of the game, 40 over cricket which still maintains the excitement of power play over and provide the sport to all Communities & cricket lovers.
The National Cricket League aims and objectives are to expand the level of cricket to different regions in the United Kingdom and promoting our colour concept to achieve our goals in empowering and encouraging our new generations and other passionate cricket lovers to take on the sport of cricket.
Cricket as a sport has brought a lot of excitement to majority passionate playing members, especially attracting young players who see Twenty20 Cricket as a great bench mark to be introduced to the Sport and to make progress on other forms of the game.
Our work has also been recognised by local councillors, members of various communities, former players, young people and other passionate cricket lovers, along with Essex Cricket County Board whom we are now partners with and work tirelessly with new ideas to keep cricket alive.
