ECB roadmap for return

ECB has just released the roadmap to return of recreational cricket. Currently step 3 of 5 awaiting government and medical approval to move to step 4 when safe to do so. We took the tough decision to keep everything shut down so far as the facilities we have just aren’t good enough to support training with all the required restrictions. Rest assured as soon as it is safe to do so we look forward to seeing you down the club!

Thank You

Thank you so much to Bc Vw for their generosity in raising £121 for our covid 19 fund. The ECB have also now donated £100 for reaching their set target. Thank you again and we are so grateful.
The page is set up for 50 days so please if you can donate through theses tough times on us all we would really be grateful.
