COVID 19 update to all players SCC.

Dear All

I hope this finds you safe and well and surviving in these extraordinary times.

You may well have seen recently a press release from the ECB suggesting that subject to certain controls and protections in place it is being suggested that Clubs certainly in England may like to look to resuming net practice as part of permitted daily exercise.

As a Club we are looking into this prospect although we do so with what I hope you will appreciate is understandable caution. The ECB press release and the guidance could be described as open to some degree of interpretation and just what is or may be possible in the way of re-opening the net facilities at North Marine Road is perhaps a matter of some debate.

The purpose of this communication is to ask you to respond to me direct if you will to confirm whether or not you would be interested in some form of net practice if the Club can accommodate that and is prepared to do so. I rather suspect that any decisions in this regard will have to be ratified by the Board and the processes to be followed approved by them. At this stage therefore can I please ask you to respond to me – preferably by email or text – (07885414550) to confirm whether or not you would have any interest in or appetite for net practices in the present climate.

To clarify on the subject of the resumption of matches the ECB has deferred all decisions on cricket both first class and recreational until beyond the 1 July 2020 and therefore I can give no firm details as to when if at all Club cricket matches will start this summer.

With all good wishes and the hope that you and your family are safe and well.

Yours sincerely

Nick Tubbs
