We hope all members are
keeping as well and as safe as possible in the circumstances.
The club received some
initial guidance from the ECB, supported by the Herts Saracens League regarding
cricket related activities, which recommended that “all
forms of recreational cricket are for now suspended
" such as winter nets.
As the weather improves, we
ask that the outdoor nets are not used for the time being in order to comply
with that guidance.
Further announcements are
expected from the league and we will keep everyone informed, as soon as
The usual ground preparations
are being carried out in advance of the season on all the club’s grounds
including all necessary repairs and maintenance, so that they are ready for use
when the time comes. The wickets are being prepared, the outfields are being
cut and the sight screens are being repaired at St George’s, while taking into consideration social distancing guidelines. The club also had
to invest in a new roller for the Common earlier in the year.
It is the hope of the entire
cricket community that we will still be able to make something of the season in
whatever form possible.
If there is anything
the club can do to help those who are self-isolated, such as assistance with
deliveries, please feel free to contact any member of the Exec.
