To all BWCC members and players.
Very sadly the ECB has just bowed to the obvious and issued new guidance that all recreational cricket is suspended for the foreseeable future.
Here is a brief summary about how that effects BWCC, but I’m very aware that you will all be far more concerned with the health of family and friends, and worrying too about businesses and jobs.
There will be no AGM as these are exceptional circumstances and I can’t believe that others aren’t in the same boat. The existing Committee will continue and we will have an EGM at the first sensible opportunity.
Cricket – all I have spoken to are in broad agreement that the very earliest that we might see cricket being able to be played again is not until July. Given the further information given out last week concerning the extension of ‘social distancing’ to possibly 6 months (or longer), I’m afraid that we do have to accept the real possibility that we may see no cricket at Buckhorn this season.
The ground – In the hope that cricket might start up again in late summer we will keep the square mown lightly (and probably lightly rolled just to get in reasonably flat) and the outfield kept tidy.
On behalf of the Committee please take the greatest of care and our thoughts with you all.
And let us hope and pray that before the end of the summer the noises of bat on ball, the muffled expletives and laughter as yet another catch goes down, and the happy clink of glasses will be heard again on our lovely ground.
All best, Robin
