Message from the League - Play-Cricket Player Registration – It is an ECB requirement to receive full funding that a high percentage of players “SIGN UP”. This will allow the ECB to engage more with current players.
All who have played in League matches will have been registered by our own Play-Cricket administrator, but that registration has not included the ability for members to have their own user name and password to enable more interaction, which you are encouraged to have.
Go to:
In filling in this application you should also apply to be a member of Shenfield’s club page, which you will be able to search for at the foot of the application page. The club Play-Cricket administrator can then merge this request with your current player profile on the club's Play-Cricket website.
It’s not as complicated as it sounds!
