Message from the Chairman

At long last we are able to offer some more positive news!!

Firstly, the league are proposing a round robin cup competition starting on the 2nd August. This will include our 1st and 2nd teams. Our 3rd team will start their fixtures on 1st August. We are expecting fixtures to be confirmed by Monday of next week at which point we will share them with you. Please note though that this return is subject to ECB guidance that have not yet been published. Junior fixtures are also currently under discussion and team managers will be in touch with players once we know more detail. I must put on record our thanks to the league executive who have been extremely proactive in trying to get cricket going again.

Secondly, the response from our members in supporting the club by joining the monthly draw, paying memberships and making donations has been fantastic. We are therefore planning to hold a ‘Members & Friends’ day on Saturday 25th July. More details to follow but it will be a chance to celebrate the club reopening by enjoying a few drinks and watching some ‘friendly’ cricket. We will have some great drinks offers on the day so please pencil this in.

Finally, as most will know the lifeblood of our club is through functions being held. We need clarification from powers that be that functions for over 30 people are permissible. We again expect more details soon but be assured we will be ready to go once we have the green light.

Thanks to you all once again for your continued support and I look forward to seeing you on the 25th!

Colin Pemberton
