I’m sure many of you would have seen the brilliant news last week that the UK Government has given the green light for recreational cricket in England to return from Saturday.

Saturday – Cricket cricket cricket. In the morning we will have a work party from 10am to 12.30pm to put the finishing touches on preparing the ground and clubhouse for the start of the season. Jobs that need doing include painting, sweeping and clearing the patio and cleaning the sight-screens. This will be followed by a 1's and 2's practice match commencing at 1pm which promises to be competitive. If cricket alone isn't enough to entice you down to the ground the bar will be open from lunchtime onwards so please come along and enjoy the opening day of our season. The weather forecast looks good all weekend. 

Sunday – In the morning there will be back to back juniors fixtures followed by a 3's and 4's practice match commencing at 2.30pm. The bar will once again be open from lunchtime onwards. 

Thursday 16th July - There will be an in-house T20 at Brewery Road commencing at 6pm.  



Whilst it’s exciting to finally see the return of cricket at Brewery Road it’s critical that we all do our best to protect each other and that we all enjoy our time at the club responsibly in accordance with the latest UK government guidelines concerning social distancing. The club will be putting all the possible measures in place to make the club as safe as possible, but we ask all visitors to the ground to adhere to the following before and during their visit. 

  • Do not come to the club if you or an individual in your household is symptomatic with a possible COVID19 infection.
  • Wash hands thoroughly before leaving home. Bring your own hand sanitiser if possible and maintain strict and frequent hand hygiene measures.
  • Remain socially distanced at all times and refrain from all contact with cricket balls e.g. returning it to the field of play.
  • In the event of rain, please seek shelter keeping your distance or in your own vehicle.


Following the latest update from the UK Government, the ECB have prepared a plan to support clubs and individuals as they prepare for the return of recreational cricket, including details of adjustments which should be made to respect hygiene and social distancing requirements.

That plan – available here – covers a number of areas of the game, including:

  • Pre-match adaptations regarding transport and symptom checking.
  • In-game adaptations applying to social distancing measures, hygiene, match officials and the use of equipment.
  • Post-game adaptations, including the potential use of club facilities.
  • To support this, please also find here an eight step infographic, and an infographic for pre-match, in-game and post-game adaptations here.
