“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.”

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.

Sport England have issued the following guidelines about Coronavirus through the Yorkshire Cricket Board.

Please click to go to the Sport England Website - Sport England Coronavirus Update


''We know sport at every level is facing upheaval because of coronavirus (COVID-19) and that this is causing concern and uncertainty.

The government has today confirmed that people with mild symptoms should stay at home and self-isolate for seven days.

We know that all of this could affect planned events and activities.

For now, it doesn't mean you can't still run activities where people gather, and it definitely doesn't mean that people should be discouraged from being active.

In fact, given that being fit and healthy acts as a deterrent to most infections, it's crucial that members of the public continue to lead active lives throughout this period, whether that's using a local gym or walking or cycling, where it’s possible to do so.

Unless there's official advice telling you not to do so, and as long as you follow the government advice on how to avoid catching or spreading the virus, you can continue with things like club sports fixtures, group activities and use leisure facilities.

In every scenario, it’s clear that hand hygiene is critical and if you’re planning to go somewhere that involves using sports equipment, make sure you're thoroughly wiping it down before and after you use it.

We understand how challenging and unprecedented this period may be, especially where events and fixtures are being postponed or cancelled.

We're not currently in a position to offer financial support to organisations affected, however, we're working to explore options should they be needed and we'll communicate further once those have been more fully discussed.''

Scarborough Cricket Club is delighted to announce that Kenelm Storey has agreed to become the new President.

Kenelm said, “I’m hugely honoured to be taking on the position of president at the club and I hope I can help this great club progress.”

 “I’m already actively involved and, living relatively nearby, I am readily available to do more. I’m looking forward to meeting all those involved with the club I haven’t yet met and building a good relationship with the club.

 “When the club approached me it was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down. I have, as so many people do, great memories of my early visits – in my case in the 1970s. Then I have a family connection, with both my maternal Cayley grandfather (after whom I am named) and great-grandfather being president, and my son (about the age now, I was then) playing for Scarborough & Ryedale (U11s & 12s, last summer). He has even played at NMR, so I was very keen to play my part.

 “This summer is going to be massive for the club, starting with the Roses match in June, then Kumar Sangakkara launching the 50 over fiesta in July, followed by David Gower speaking at the Festival Dinner in August. So, with these two icons of the sport and all the fantastic cricket being played at the club – during which we all hope to see Yorkshire excel, it’s set to be another summer to remember.

 “Finally, I’m hoping that everyone will continue to do all they can to support the club because it’s an absolute gem on our doorstep.

 “I look forward to seeing you all there”.

All at Scarborough Cricket Club would like to extend their thanks to outgoing President, Phillip Hodson.
