The Morrant Thames Valley Cricket League covers a large area mainly to the west of London and includes major cricket clubs from no less than seven counties - Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire, Hertfordshire, Middlesex, Oxfordshire and Surrey.
TVCL seeks to promote the highest standards in all facets of the game and is an important component of the ECB Premier League structure with promotion and relegation to and from the Home Counties Premier League. If you would like any further information, please contact a member of the Committee
Pre-season TVCL training this year will be arranged by the ACOs from Berkshire and Buckinghamshire. It was mutually agreed to divide the normal pre-season meet into two, because of numbers and the amount of training required.
The sessions are:
Berks COA: Sunday 2 April 2017 (Wokingham CC): DLS training for umpires; Wednesday 19 April 7.00pm (Slough CC); DLS training for DLS managers, scorers & captains.
Bucks ACO (training/social evenings Tring Park CC 7:30 p.m): Tuesday 18 April: DLS; TVCL Regulations for 50/50 & 100-overs Formats (plus other issues); Tuesday 16 May Law 42 & other issues [20/3/17]
2017 Season - Reminders
• Captains in L1-4 are likely to get automatic notices from WTU of their umpiring appointments for the forthcoming weekend. For most L4 and some L3 matches these notices will tell you that you have a club umpire rather than a panel one. This may seem confusing but it does actually say, very clearly, ‘Club Umpire’. The reason for this is that you need to complete assessments for all umpires, both panel and club.[updated 7/3/2017]
• For captains and scorers in Levels where there are Win/Lose matches which are affected by the :weather the DLS G50 parameter should be set to 245.
Updated details of the 2017 structure have been published - go to the Documents page (under 'Contacts & Administration') . The structure at Level 9 has been changed.and there are now only 9 teams in Division 6a following the withdrawal of Chiswick and Whitton 3.
The reviseded full fixture list for 2017 also appears on the Fixtures pages of the website [7/3/2017]
Links with Play-Cricket
In the close season we have established contacts with Play-Cricket and progress is being made towards .getting our results and scorecard data accepted automatically. In view of past problems we do not wish to say any more thanthis at present, but we are hopeful that something will be working in the coming season.
This would mean that clubs which use Pitchero, whose system, simply downloads what is on Play-Cricket, would avoid having to enter these details twice - but we are not there yet! [7/3/2017]
