ECB - Helmet safety guidelines

The ECB have re-issued their helmet guidelines as shown below

ECB Guidance Note: Safety measures for helmets within recreational cricket.

The ECB has recently announced new helmet safety measures, which are being introduced with a view to reducing the risk of head and facial injuries within the game. The purpose of this brief note is to assist Leagues and Clubs at the recreational level to understand the key elements of these changes and what they mean.

Players over the age of 18

The ECB strongly recommends that all adult recreational cricketers should wear helmets for certain activities, preferably which meet the most recent British Safety Standard (see below). This recommendation applies to batting against all types of bowling, wicket-keepers standing up to the wicket (who may as an alternative wear face protectors) and fielders fielding closer than eight yards from the batsman’s middle stump, except behind the wicket on the off side.

Under 18s

The position in relation to u18s currently remains unchanged, and is governed by the ‘ECB Guidance on the Wearing of Cricket Helmets by Young Players’ (

In essence, batsmen and wicket-keepers standing up to the stumps must wear head protection when playing or practising. That Guidance should be referred to in full for the position in relation to u18s.

British Safety Standard

The latest British Safety Standard is BS7928:2013 (for both adults and juniors). The full list of helmets meeting this standard is available at For wicket-keeping face protectors the relevant British Safety Standard is BS7929-2:2009 (again, for both adults and juniors).

The ECB understands that there is currently no specific women's helmet and as a consequence no specific standard for women's cricket helmets. As the size of the standard women's cricket ball is between the standard men and junior balls, it is recommended that women use helmets that have been tested against both the men's and junior sized ball, or at least against the junior size ball (as that could potentially get through the gap above the face guard on a men's helmet).

What do Leagues and Clubs need to do?

Whilst it is strongly recommended that all adult recreational cricketers wear helmets in the on-field circumstances detailed above, it is not mandatory for them to do so. For the avoidance of doubt, Leagues or Clubs do not need to go above and beyond the ECB’s recommendation by forcing their cricketers to wear helmets. However, Leagues and Clubs in recreational cricket should ensure that their cricketers are made aware of the ECB’s above recommendation in relation to helmets, including the need to check that any newly purchased helmets meet the latest British Safety Standard.

The ECB recommends that Leagues and Clubs bring the link above (i.e to the attention of their cricketers and encourage all cricketers to carefully consider their own health and safety regarding helmet use. Leagues and Clubs should always ensure that they have adequate public liability insurance.

ECB - February 2016


Report of week ending 29 August

Two wins and three defeats for the Saturday League sides including two last ball finishes. The 1st XI are promoted and the 3rd XI and 5th XIs relegated.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 1.  The 1st XI entertained Aythorpe Roding 1st XI needing 2 points to secure promotion to the Premier Division.  Rayleigh batted first and totalled 266-6 in their 45 overs, Andy Impey (72), Ben Francis (66) and George Barker (49) leading the scoring. The visitors made a spirited reply and were up with the required run rate until the ninth wicket fell and they finished 26 runs short on 240 all out, Chris Frost taking 3-33 and Rhys Howard 2-31. This result means the 1st XI return to the Premier Division.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 2. The 2nd XI visited Great Waltham 1st XI who batted first and scored 182-6, Adam Keeley taking 2-6 and Sam Law 2-28.   Sree (66) and Sam Law (49) led the reply but needing 3 runs off the last ball of the match Sam was out leaving the 2nd XI short of their target by 2 runs. The 2nd XI finished 8th in the table.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 5. The 3rd XI hosted Rayne 1st XI needing to win to have any chance of avoiding relegation to Division 6. Rayne batted first and scored 286-2.  In reply Rayleigh were bowled out for 124, Alan Brown (34) and Darren Smith (20) top scoring.  The 3rd XI are relegated to Division 6.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 8. The 4th XI visited Hatfield Peverel 2nd XI who batted first and scored 183-7, Chris Houghton taking 3-44 and John Wright 3-45.  At 141-7 victory looked unlikely but Chris Houghton (56*) had other ideas and needing one run of the last ball he hit a four to ensure a win for the 4th XI by 2 wickets. The 4th XI finished 4th in the table.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 10.  The 5th XI travelled to top of the table Canvey Island 2nd XI needing to win to have a slim chance of avoiding relegation to Division 11 but were bowled out for 85, which target the home side passed for the loss of just one wicket. The 5th XI are relegated to Division 11.

T Rippon Mid Essex League Division 12.  The 6th XI were due to play Chelmsford 6th XI in a friendly having completed their League fixtures but unfortunately Chelmsford were unable to raise a side and it was not possible to find a replacement fixture.   The 6th XI finished 8th in the table.
