Weekly clubs bulletin no 3 – 13 May 2021
Posted on 14th May 2021 at 09:42
Here is this week’s round-up of information for YCSPL clubs.
Cancellations. Clubs are reminded that when a game is cancelled, in addition to notifying the umpires appointed on Who’s the Umpire, home clubs must also notify the relevant Umpires Association appointments secretary (David Ward or Linzey Scothern). This allows umpires to be diverted elsewhere whenever possible.
Covid guidance. The ECB has now published guidance on the changes for cricket in the third stage of the government roadmap out of lockdown (from 17 May). The main changes for clubs are that:
Changing rooms and showers can open subject to social distancing, sanitization & risk assessments. Players are encouraged to minimise their use by arriving in kit and showering at home where possible. They are not to be used at rain breaks. The League will not require changing rooms to be open – it is for clubs to decide whether they are content to do this.
Hospitality. Food and drink may be served both indoors and outdoors. Clubs may serve customers in groups of up to 6 (or 2 households) indoors, or in groups of up to 30 outdoors. If alcohol is served at a club, table service will be required – even if no alcohol is ordered. If alcohol is not served, customers can order and collect food and drink from a counter but it must be consumed whilst seated at a table.
Teas can be served where this can be done following government guidance on hospitality. No club will be required to serve teas - clubs should only serve teas when they are ready to do so safely.
Spectators are permitted at all grounds but must observe social distancing and the gathering limit of 30 (overall ground limit 1,000).
Travel. Car sharing is now permitted.
Club officials must read the guidance on the ECB website Recreational Cricket Covid Guidance page and be clear on the requirements.
Home clubs should contact visiting teams in good time to advise them of the facilities to be provided.
All clubs must ensure that they operate in a diligent manner and in line with the guidance.
