The ECCL premier division kicked off last weekend with victories for Alcorcon and Madrid United over Madrid I and Sporting Alfas respectively.
The match at La Manga was a nailbiting affair with Alcorcon triumphing by just one run. The victory was in no small part down to a century from the Spanish national player Tariq Ali who continued his fine form start to the season after recently pickingup the player of the torneo at the Madrid Charity event last month.
Alfas were defeated somewhat suprisingly by Madrid United although another Spanish International, Gary Crompton but in a good performance with both bat and ball for the home side. Madrid were all out for 238 but Alfas could only muster 180 all out in reply.
As a result Madrid United accrued 18 points and last years beaten finalists just 7 points
