Cambridge NCI Cricket Club

Signing up with Play Cricket

Play Cricket,, is the ECB’s website to help administer all the amateur cricket teams and leagues. Cambridgeshire's league managers require us to register our players and upload all our match scorecards on this site.

We'd prefer players to register themselves, as our admin volunteers are already overworked. If you register, you can access the site, and review your statistics, team results, and update your availability for matches.
