ECB Update 5/3/2021
Mar 5, 2021, 2:34 pm

This week's bulletin contains information an the ECB's response to the Government Announcement, International Women's Day and EWCT Loans.

 

Government Announcement - FAQs

We have been pleased with the recent Government announcements highlighting a return to cricket in England from the 29th March. We continue to work closely with DCMS and UK Government to ensure cricket plays it’s part in ensuring the safe opening up of society and that we continue to be highly respected thanks to the efforts of club volunteers up and down the country.  As we finalise our guidance which will be shared with you all shortly we understand that some of you have asked questions on what activity is permissible at the moment.

Q. Can I deliver 1:1 coaching sessions?

A. Not at this time. Sports venues (including cricket facilities) must remain closed as instructed by the government until at least 29/3/21 (subject to review) and you may currently only exercise in a public outdoor space with one other person.  ECB is clear that the definition of exercise in a public space is not intended to include cricket activity.  https://www.gov.uk/guidance/national-lockdown-stay-at-home#exercising

 

Q. Can I meet with other club committee members to get the ground ready for the start of the season?

A.  Not at this time. ‘Stay at Home where possible’ is still in force, so grounds maintenance should be limited to essential preparation tasks with essential staff only.  Large working parties are not appropriate at this stage.  Clubs should risk assess any lifting or lone working that would be an health and safety risk, and delay that until Step 1b (29/3/21) when the Rule of Six will apply and ‘Stay at Home’ will be replaced with ‘Stay Local’, then sub-grouped (max 6) working parties would be more appropriate.  For more information please see the latest Sport England Guidance

 

Q. What does this mean for Cricket in Wales?

A. We continue to work closely with Sport Wales to ensure cricket can return as soon as possible.

 

Thank you for your understanding in keeping people safe this summer

Cindy Butts has been appointed chair of the Independent Commission for Equity in Cricket, which will examine issues relating to race and equity in the game.

 

Independant Commission for Equity in Cricket 

As Chair, Ms Butts will work with the ECB Board to finalise the terms of reference for the Commission. She will lead the process to appoint a number of independent Commissioners who will bring further diversity of thought, background and experience to the Commission, providing constructive input and challenge to the ECB and the wider game.

 

The full announcement can be seen here.

 

International Womens Day

 

 

International Women's Day is 8th March, and this year's theme is #ChoosetoChallenge.

 

The #IWD website explains...“A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we're all responsible for our own thoughts and actions - all day, every day. We can choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality."

 

Below is a guide that explains how the ECB is celebrating #IWD2021 and how you might like to get involved, celebrating women who work or volunteer in your County, local communities or clubs.

Update & Inter Club Game
Mar 2, 2021, 6:01 pm

Our club is looking to have a inter club game on Sunday 11th April starting at approx 1pm playing around 30 overs.

We would have had it on the Saturday however the Rugby Club has a golf day booked and quite a few of our members are attending that day.

We are also looking at booking a personal trainer to limber us up ready for the season starting blowing away the cobwebs as they say.

We will be also looking at a number of outdoor nets before the season starts on 17th April. That is all depending on the COVID-19 position.


Cricket Square Work
Feb 28, 2021, 10:38 am

Friday 26th February saw our groundsman give our cricket square its first cut of 2021 with a rotary mower.

Friday and Saturday both lovely sunny warm days we give our square a total of 8 cross over passes with our roller.

It is 7 weeks till the season starts. (fingers crossed)


Looking for Match Ball Sponsor
Feb 22, 2021, 7:15 pm

In the 2021 season we are looking for match ball sponsors, it will cost £25 to sponsor a match ball. We are hoping to be able to get a sponsor for all 1st and 2nd team games. We have a total 44 league games. 

We already have two members who have made a £25 donation to sponsor a ball.

Come on members sponsor a ball and support your club, you can choose which match you want to sponsor.

All of the income will benefit our club financially and go towards the costs of the cricket balls.

If you want to support our club please do not hesitate to contact your Chairman.

After only 3 weeks Dan Hartshorn scooped the prize pot of £360.

There was only two left in Ricky Gibson selected Man Utd who drew at West Brom and Dan slected Chelsea who beat Newcastle in the midweek games.

Not bad for Dan he just joined 3 weeks ago.

We have a new round starting on the weekend if you want to join give Chris Harwood a ring.

Update from ECB Safeguarding Team regarding DBS

 

We would encourage you to check that you have a valid DBS and if necessary, make an application as soon as possible. It’s important to start this process early in preparation for the new season and to avoid delays when cricket activities resume.

Access is currently restricted to a limited group of Primary and Secondary users at County & ECB Level. Once you have submitted an application you will receive a link to use the Find a Verifier feature. After entering your postcode you will be asked to select 3 verifiers in order of preference. Once a verifier accepts your request you will be notified and advised to contact them to set up a Video ID meeting.
