Last year's unplayed season finale, Married vs Single, has been scheduled for Sunday 30th August (Bank Holiday Weekend)
The 40 overs a side match wiil start at 11am and will be followed by LIVE MUSIC OUTSIDE with FOOD from 5pm... more details will follow
You will all know that around 5.00pm on Friday recreational cricket got the green light to resume from the 11th July. What you may not know is that the ECB meeting with all the Premier leagues to allow this to happen is not scheduled to take place until the afternoon of this coming Wednesday 8th July.
We expect to be told then what the rules are that will allow us to play. Although some weeks ago we asked clubs to prepare for a potential start on 11th July, we believe it would be impractical for the league season to start next week. Two other leagues, to our knowledge, have already indicated that they will start on 18th July, and we believe that to be the earliest for league matches to begin in accordance with the fixture list on 18th July.
Other details, relating to many relevant matters (cricket balls, grounds and player availability and perhaps an option for games to be played on Sundays if grounds are not available on Saturday) will follow over the next few days and particularly after the ECB meeting on Wednesday.
The league committee is meeting later today to discuss the above and other matters, and we will get back to all clubs as soon as we can after the ECB meeting on Wednesday afternoon.
The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) is delighted that the UK Government has given the green light for recreational cricket in England* to return from Saturday 11 July.
The latest update from the UK Government signals progression from Step 3 to Step 4 of ECB’s roadmap to return for the recreational game, meaning competitive cricket matches in England with adjustments to respect hygiene and social distancing would be permitted.
ECB has maintained a constant dialogue with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) throughout this process and the UK Government have stated that COVID-secure guidance will be published in the coming days.
Guidelines are already prepared for the return of recreational cricket and following the Prime Minister’s comments, will now be finalised and published early next week.
ECB Chief Executive Officer, Tom Harrison, said: "It will come as great news to our nation of recreational cricketers that the UK Government has given the green light for the game to return from next weekend. We are grateful for the support of Government to achieve this, in particular Oliver Dowden, Nigel Huddleston and those across DCMS who have helped the return of international, professional and now recreational cricket.
"We have had a responsibility throughout this period of time to work with the UK Government and to plan alongside the cricket network to try and mitigate COVID-19’s impact on the 2020 season. We have maintained a constant dialogue with UK Government and they've been supportive of our desire to see recreational cricket return when it is safe.
"They now agree that with appropriate measures in place to mitigate the risk, it is safe.
"We know how difficult it has been for everyone to go without cricket this summer, and we thank you for your patience.
"As the nation's summer sport we believe we have a role to play in getting people active across the country, especially young people, and it is heartening to know that club cricket – albeit with social distancing in place and some other adaptations – will soon be back across England."
