The Cause – Goresbrook Cricket Club are a Sport England Clubmark community club based in Dagenham, East London. Formed in 1981, we have an outstanding record in providing cricket for youngsters in a borough consistently ranked as one of the poorest in the capital. Our 4 senior sides consist almost entirely of home produced players, our 1st XI being built around players from our u16 squads who reached the Essex County final in 2006 & 2013.

We have invested heavily in our facilities in recent years and all funds raised from this competition will go towards the running of the club, as we aim to provide top class facilities & maximum opportunities to play and develop, whilst keeping the cost affordable for the local community.

Rules

Simply predict the scores of matches and questions.  If you predict the correct outcome of a match you will receive two points, if you get the correct outcome and scoreline you will receive five points.

For example, if you think Holland will beat Italy 2-1 and it finished Holland 2-1 Italy, then you will get five points but if its Holland 2-0 Italy you will receive two points.

Knockout games will be added to a new page when the competition reaches that stage so do not forget to log back in and predict those and the additional questions.

There are also a number of questions to predict the answers to and they carry a different number of points depending on the question.

All questions have to be answered prior to the start of the tournament whereas match results can be predicted up to two hours before kick off.

When the competition reaches the group stages, remember to log back in and predict the scores for these  games and to answer the additional questions that will become available as the tournament progresses.

Make sure you click save under each section of games and questions to submit your predictions and make sure you do this on the predictions and questions pages.  Failure to do this may mean your predictions are not saved.

The standings table will be updated as soon as possible after games have been completed.
