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.

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.  


As a result of the Government’s current national lockdown restrictions and advice from theDisclosure and Barring Service, the ECB are continuing with Online ID verifications until further notice. This includes the initiation and verification of DBS applications.


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.

COVID-19 update on cricket in England and Wales


This statement applies to changes in England following the Prime Minister’s announcement on 4 January of new national lockdown restrictions.

Wales continues to remain in a national lockdown since 19 December with all cricket activity suspended with a review expected later this week.

In England, ECB can confirm that unfortunately all indoor and outdoor privately owned cricket facilities will now need to close for all but elite cricket activity and disability cricket outdoors.

Cricket clubs in public open spaces such as parks can continue to provide outdoor spaces for individual permitted activity.

The Government has confirmed that:

You can exercise in a public outdoor place:

  • by yourself
  • with the people you live with
  • with your support bubble (if you are legally permitted to form one)
  • in a childcare bubble where providing childcare
  • or, when on your own, with 1 person from another household

Public outdoor places include:

  • parks, beaches, countryside accessible to the public, forests
  • public gardens (whether or not you pay to enter them)
  • the grounds of a heritage site
  • playgrounds

Any public outdoor place used for permitted individual cricket exercise activity should be suitable and safe for the type of cricket activity taking place. You must ensure that you have sought and gained permission to use facilities in a public open space and that it is safe to do so. If a club or local authority have closed cricket facilities within a public open space they should not be used.

There is a risk that during the winter both natural turf cricket squares and non-turf surfaces can be damaged when wet, frozen or snow-covered. These conditions also increase injury risk to participants.

Furthermore, essential safety equipment such as netting may have been removed. Therefore, facilities should not be used unless they are safe and will not be damaged. Where cricket can take place, adequate measures must be taken to keep warm and minimise injury risk, including to other members of the public sharing the open space. You should be considerate to other users of the public open space.

You can also continue to go to work if your work cannot be undertaken from home. So people employed or volunteering to work on grounds maintenance over the winter can continue to do so subject to suitable COVID risk assessment and control measures being in place. Further information on winter maintenance of cricket grounds under COVID can be found on the Grounds Management Association website.
