It's hard to believe that that the season is now over. It seems like only last week we were preparing the ground for the new season. We have had our ups and downs but thankfully many more "ups".

The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
