The ECB have been working closely with the UK Government to provide clarity in what the easing of lockdown restrictions mean for recreational cricket across England and have released the following message…
We know that our communities, players and volunteers will have missed the social, physical and health benefits of participating in our great game and believe we have an important role to play in supporting the nations recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. Importantly, we also know that we have a collective responsibility to ensure the safety of our communities by ensuring compliance with both the latest Government guidance. The aim of the accompanying documents is to share with you the information we currently know about what the return to cricket at the end of March will look like, in order to help your planning. This is based on our ongoing conversations with the Government and key partners to date and information published on Gov.uk.
The ECB have produced the roadmap and accompanying documents in order to provide you with the headline information on what activities are permissible during each step of the Roadmap. The ECB will continue to update this document and the Somerset Cricket Board will continue to share those updates with you over the course of the season.
We will continue to update the relevant information as and when we receive more information on the latest position across England.
