We are sure that you are aware of
recent events surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic and at this time of
uncertainty, we thought it appropriate to update you on how this is impacting
on our cricket club and how our members could help to ease the strain over the
The ECB has taken the decision to
suspend all junior and senior recreational cricket for the foreseeable future.
There has been a meeting of the Lancashire League Cricket Executive where it
was decided that there will be no Cup competitions apart from a T20 competition
and once sanctions are lifted, teams will play each other once with no
promotion or relegation. Clubs will not be penalised if they do not engage a
professional. It is envisaged that cricket will not commence until the
beginning of July at the earliest but obviously that will be kept under review.
As you will be aware the club
closed its doors on Friday 20th March in line with Government
guidelines and all events and functions have had to be cancelled. This will
have a significant financial impact on our club. Our Management Committee
have taken steps to reduce our outgoings during this period of closure and we
hope that there will be some financial support by way of grants from the
Government. We are currently waiting for confirmation with regards to
eligibility and accessing this funding.
Memberships – In the meantime, we are asking our members to continue to support the club by renewing their membership as soon as possible, where they are able to do so. We do know that some people have already renewed their membership and we are very grateful for that support. For those members who are players, we are asking you to pay a non-player membership at this time. Payments can be made by following this link.
Monthly Draw – In addition, we would ask if you could support the club by joining the Monthly Draw if you have not done so already. Entry is £5 per month per number and Prize money will be paid as follows: 1st prize 25% of the monthly pot, 2nd prize 15% of the monthly pot and 3rd prize 10% of the monthly pot. The first draw is tomorrow Saturday 28th March which will be publicised as best we can during the afternoon. To enter follow this link.
