After the recent announcement of the Esme Irwin League fixtures, Middlesex Cricket are excited to today announce the 2021 fixtures for the Derick Morgan League.
The league has been renamed to commemorate one of the biggest supporters and the instigator of women’s and girl’s cricket in Middlesex.
The Middlesex Derick Morgan League is a stand-alone 20 over league that provides additional opportunities for clubs entering multiple teams from the Esme Irwin League, as well as being the entry point for emerging clubs wishing to play league cricket.
The league will be split into two regional divisions, with eleven clubs competing to reach the semi-final knockouts ahead of the final on Sunday 5th September. The Derick Morgan League A will see Crouch End, Harrow St Mary’s, North London, Stoke Newington, and Wembley compete against each other, whilst League B includes Actonians, Bushy Park, Harrow, the Harrow Women’s Cricket Project, Ickenham, and Richmond.
The competition will run in a 20 over format, with the league stages beginning at Ickenham on the 25th of April. The season will conclude with semi-finals on the 22nd of August, hosted at William Perkin School, and the final on the 5th of September at the same venue.
You will be able to follow all the results on each club’s Women and Girls social media accounts, as well as a regular weekly round-up of the action on the Middlesex Participation Twitter throughout the season.
Middlesex Participation Manager Sharon Eyers said:
“We are very excited to see both the Esme Irwin and the Derick Morgan Leagues both being competed in for 2021 after such a difficult 2020 season. We look forward to raising the profile of the women’s game in Middlesex and through all of our media channels sharing all the stories and results each week”
