The North East Premier League (NEPL) is an ECB-accredited Regional Premier League and was founded in 1999.
The NEPL now has 24 full member clubs and one affiliated club and they participate at first, second and third XI levels in addition to knockout cup competitions and vibrant Twenty20 Cup tournaments. There are also a Midweek League, a Midweek Cup and Junior Competitions at U11, U13 and U15 levels.
Our clubs have also excelled at national level with honours in the National Club Championship, the ECB Club T20 and the ECB Six A Side Indoor championship.
We are grateful for the support of our member clubs as we continue to strive for improvement and development of the game in line with the "Raising the Standards" report that paved the way for Premier League cricket.
We are also indebted to our competiton sponsors for their fantastic support.
Dukes Cricket are our title sponsors and official cricket ball of the League.
The Banks Group have been with the League since day one, and we are very pleased that they will once again sponsor our three major Cup competitions.
Finally the Co-operative Funeralcare are title sponsor of our First and Second XI T20 competitions.
At it meeting on Thursday evening the League Management Committee decided that the programmes of matches due to be played last weekend would not be rescheduled. The Committee took into account ground availability and views expressed in favour and against rescheduling.
The Committee also agreed to consider incorporating a new Match Play Rule for the 2017 season to cover the rescheduling of a completely abandoned programme of matches. Clubs will be consulted on this at the post-season meeting.
