If you haven’t done so, make sure you register your attendance, and pass on the form to any relevant people within your club that will benefit from hearing the key All Stars and Dynamos Cricket updates for 2021. You will receive a zoom link to the event first thing on Monday morning.



Lots of centres have started to upload their courses onto ClubSpark, thank you! If you haven’t done so yet, please do start the process of uploading your courses for both All Stars and Dynamos Cricket 2021, so that your sessions will be available to parents when we open participant recruitment later this month.




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.

1.       Zoom -

2.       Microsoft Teams –

3.       Skype -

4.       iPhone Facetime -

5.       WhatsApp video call -


Important steps for the ID verification meeting:

1.       Ensure you have emailed over copies of your 3 ID documents prior to the verification meeting.

2.       You will be asked to hold up to the screen the original documents used to compare likeness for any photo ID document.

3.       Once the ID Verification has taken place, all emails with ID documents attached will be deleted.

Big thank you to Wilkinson's of Ashington, who awarded our club a £40 voucher from their Helping Hands Community Fund. 

We purchased a large 6 Ltr slow cooker and a 1.8 Ltr rice cooker and steamer, just what we needed to help with our tea's on a cold day.

Thank you Wilkinsons for your support.

Last Man Standing "We Have a Winner"
Jan 22, 2021, 5:30 pm

After two rollers we now have a winner that lucky person is Callum Milburn, walks away the prize pot of £630, not bad for a £10 entry, with a nice sum riased for our club.

Three people were left in, one had Wolves to beat West Brom and they lost 3 -2, the other had Leeds to win and they lost 1 -0 at home.

Callum had Spurs to win and they did 2 - 0 thus giving him the prize pot.

If you would like to join give Chris Harwood a ring.

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.

All Stars & Dynamos Cricket






Thank you for your ongoing patience, passion and commitment in what has been a difficult year.  Whilst we are disappointed that Dynamos Cricket couldn’t run in 2020, and All Stars Cricket activity was limited, 2021 presents a fantastic opportunity that we are extremely excited for.


Prior to the festive break and New Year, we wanted to share some of the timescales for activity in 2021:

  • January 2021 – Centre registration opens  for All Stars Cricket & Dynamos Cricket
  • Mid-February – Participant registration opens
  • March – National Programmes Activator training
  • April – Major marketing activity
  • May 7 – First All Stars Cricket & Dynamos Cricket sessions
  • Late July – School Holidays All Stars Cricket & Dynamos Cricket activity.



We hope you have a fantastic holiday season, stay safe, and we look forward to sharing more information with you in the New Year.

Guidance for Cricket Indoors

Click to view in browser



Please see the updated guidelines for cricket indoors, these can be viewed for England and Wales by clicking the buttons below. 


The purpose of these guidelines is to offer practical guidance to venues, coaching providers and clubs on the steps they should take while undertaking cricket indoors. They should be read in conjunction with latest UK and Welsh Government regulations but please note these guidelines could change in response to the current COVID-19 Alert Level or other Government advice in both areas. It is essential that venues, coaching providers and clubs follow the guidance for their particular country, as the updates are different between England and Wales.


In order to keep cricket going as it moves indoors, there will need to be adaptations in place for all, including venues, coaching providers, players, parents/carers, spectators and officials. Those adaptations relate to activity prior to, during and after cricket activity.


A summary of the adaptations is listed below but please read the full guidance documents for both England and Wales for comprehensive details.



Venues, Coaching Providers, Clubs and Participants


• Read the new updated guidance (relevant to their country) and familiarise themselves with new guidance on group size restrictions, face coverings and recording participant information for contact tracing schemes (the principal changes).

• Follow the updated sections in the checklists

• Revisit and republish their risk assessments

• Revisit communications and operational  plans with venues, coaching providers, clubs and participants


Supporting Documents



In relation to England: Checklists for venue operators and coaching providers and clubs and a risk assessment template are all available.


In relation to Wales: Checklists for venue operators and coaching providers and clubs and a risk assessment template are all available.


All of these documents can also be accessed in the ECB Resource Hub here. A reminder to create an account if you have not done so already.
