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!

Our U7 colts recently played their first ever game at Shenfield High School against Brentwood CC - 2 squads played with 1 side playing terrier pairs cricket and the other team playing Kwik cricket.
Both squads showed they have developed good techniques over the last 3 seasons of training, winning each game. Violet Field was player of the match in the Kwik cricket game whilst Matthew Yip was the pick of the bowlers in the terrier cricket game.
The U7s plan to play several more fixtures during the season and we look forward to the boys and girls showing the same enthusiasm and enjoyment for these games. Here's a super photo.
