Cricket could be coming back soon!


The latest B&D 'Covid letter to clubs', released on July first, has outlined their plans to get us all back to playing cricket. The full letter can be found in the documents section of the website. Here is the TLDR;

The main takeaway is that nothing is set in stone as yet. The B&D have to get an okay from the ECB, who need to get an okay from the Government, before any formal cricket can be organised. However, provisionally, they are hoping to organise 'mini-divisions' for competetive cricket for the 5 saturdays in August. These divisions, or 'Pods', will contain 6 local teams. Each team will play all the others once, with home and away fixtures being balanced. They will also attempt to keep these teams balanced in terms of ability.

If the Government and ECB allow cricket to be played earlier than this, then clubs will have to organise their own friendlies. The same goes for any cricket being played beyond August into September.

Thanks to the efforts of the Palmers the club has been fully risk assessed for socially distanced play. They have also installed a number of safety measures to fulfill our number one priority which is to keep our players and members safe.

If you are still keen to play competetive cricket, please message your captains to let them know your availability.
