Jubilee Park could host South East Asian Cricket League
next season

The South East Asian Cricket League could play its matches at Ongar Town Council's Jubilee Park next season.

The possibility has been welcomed by town council chairman James Browning who described the idea as "fantastic".

Graham Smith, cricket development manager with Essex Cricket Board, told Wednesday's town council Jubilee Park Committee that some 400 games - a mix of 20 and 40-over cricket - were played elsewhere last summer.

He said: "It's a massive development for Essex cricket - we get to train the coaches. It's just about us getting them playing and finding them grounds to play regularly."

He added: "It (Love Lane) will become a hub for cricket."

As part of any arrangement, Essex Cricket would provide groundsman input to the Love Lane facilities.

Mr Browning told the meeting: "I think it sounds fantastic and a great opportunity for Ongar."

* Ongar Town Council has been awarded an £11,000 grant from the Essex County Council Community Initiatives Fund for improvements to the patio area at the Jubilee Pavilion, Love Lane.

Council chairman James Browning thanked council staff for their efforts in liaising with the cricket authorities and in securing the patio area grant.
