PROPOSED PRACTICE SESSIONS

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

Board Member

COUNTY CRICKET UPDATE

  • Rob Richtering
  • 24 Apr 2020
  • Latest News

Scarborough Cricket Club have taken the decision to ‘furlough’ its administration staff due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


North Marine Road has been closed in accordance with the government’s ongoing advice during the nationwide lockdown. Volunteers will carry out only necessary tasks during this lockdown period.
At this unprecedented time, we have taken this positive step to protect Scarborough Cricket Club at a time when it has no income stream. By taking advantage of the government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, we are able to preserve jobs at the club during such a difficult financial period.


The Club’s Ticket Office and Club Shop (including online sales) will not be in operation until further notice. Hospitality sales and queries will not be taken during this time.
Difficult decisions have been made to protect the long-term well being and stability of the club.


The latest information that we have from the ECB is that professional cricket will not be played in England and Wales until at least 1 July. This means that the first county championship match scheduled to start on 14 June between Yorkshire and Lancashire will now not take place. We have no further updates on the other county fixtures scheduled for the remainder of the summer at this point in time.


Refunds for cancelled games and other events will be made once the staff are back at work.


Thank you for your patience and understanding at this unprecedented and traumatic time for our business and our country. Stay safe, and we will contact you once there has been a successful resolution to this awful pandemic.

We're running a 'fun' competition on Twitter to find out who the 'ultimate' favourite cricketer is. The cricketer must have played at North Marine Road for a county, international, or other 1st Class team. All the players have been nominated via Twitter from our followers, or those who have seen our competition.

It's totally for fun, and being staged in a knockout format in groups of four players. We'll run each stage for 3 days. All you have to do is vote via Twitter.

Once you've voted for a winner we will then run a similar competition to find out your favourite Scarborough CC player of all time.

This is a fun competition - no prize money - no trophy!

Please stay safe.

MESSAGE FROM THE CLUB CHAPLAIN

To all at Scarborough Cricket Club
My name is Rev John Wells, I have recently been privileged to be appointed as Chaplain to Scarborough Cricket Club. I am an ordained Deacon with responsibilities at St Mary’s and Holy Apostles Churches. I recognise we are all going through very difficult times at the moment. Through the corona virus many things have become very uncertain, things which we used to take for granted have become destabilised. Things of everyday life, work, leisure activities, not least our cricket season, shopping, meeting with friends and family.
It’s difficult for all of us and we may well be worried about others, about members of our families. I have two children working in what are hotspots for the virus, a daughter in Birmingham and a son in London, with their families.
I know that having someone to talk to in these circumstances can sometimes be helpful, someone who is outside of our normal contacts. I am very happy to be a listening ear for anyone who has real concerns at the present time. I have been a minister within the church here in Scarborough for the past fifteen years, although I was only ordained last year. My previous background is hospital management in the NHS. I am originally from Sheffield and have worked in the NHS in Sheffield, Wharfedale, and the West Midlands in Sandwell and Birmingham.
I have been a passionate supporter of Yorkshire County Cricket Club all my life watching matches at Bramall Lane in Sheffield originally and at Headingley and of course North Marine Road Scarborough; I have been a member of the club for some years. My other sporting affiliation, being from Sheffield is Sheffield United Football Club, who again I have supported all my life (times have certainly got better just recently!).
I am available to be contacted by email at; This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and by telephone at; 07812 707628. When this pandemic is over it would be good to meet up in person, but at the moment we are where we are.
Keep safe, keep well, with my best wishes,
John Wells
Chaplain

COVID-19 ECB STATEMENT ON CRICKET

“Following the Government’s latest advice around social distancing, it is with sadness and reluctance that we recommend that all forms of recreational cricket are for now suspended.
“This extends to training, pre-season friendlies and any associated cricket activity.
“Sport plays an absolutely vital role in the nation’s mental and physical wellbeing, and it helps people find meaning where there is fear and uncertainty, so one of our goals in the coming weeks will be to explore ways that we can support some levels of physical activity in communities - particularly at junior levels.
“Using our cricket community to support others could be one of the most important services we can offer during the difficult next few months.
“It will be critical that any decisions we do make are medically-led. And we will continue to work with Government and their advisors to ensure we are informed by science in our decision making.
“Over the coming weeks we will work with the game to understand what support is required across the cricket community, particularly local clubs and leagues - who will have such a huge role to play in our nation’s response to coming out of this situation.”

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

The outbreak of Covid-19 is extremely concerning and the health and safety of all our Members, staff, volunteers, players, visitors, partners and all who we work with as a Club is paramount to us. The measures outlined below have been put in place to minimise the risk to all involved.
All events at the club have been cancelled or postponed until further notice. This includes functions within the Pavilion complex. Once further information and advice is available, we will provide updates.
Most the Club’s office-based staff will be working remotely from home with the office being managed by a skeleton staff, whilst other staff will stay at home where possible. Where possible, please can any contact with the club be made via email for those working from home to be able to take any action required.
We will continue to maintain a staff presence at the ground to enable the club’s business to continue as normal as possible.
With respect to the cricket season we are working closely with the ECB, Yorkshire County Cricket Club, Durham County Cricket Club and the local cricket leagues to discuss the various options available.
Our senior and junior players have already ceased indoor practice.
With respect to the cricket season, we are working collectively with ECB to consider the game’s response. There are a variety of options under discussion to minimise both the cricketing and financial impact, but the main priority remains, of course, the wellbeing of everyone involved.
This is a very challenging time for everybody, and we continue to appreciate the support, co-operation and understanding that we have been given.
