COVID-19 – No cricket cctivity until at least 1st July – reminder to clubs and players

Please see below a communication sent to all clubs earlier today.

“This is just a reminder that as per the guidance from Cricket Scotland guidance there should be no cricket activity until at least the 1st of July.  I do so as there have been some reports of recreational cricket activity happening in some public parks.  As a reminder Cricket Scotland has submitted plans to the Scottish Government for approval for the return to training at elite and club level in anticipation that cricket will form part of the Scottish Government’s Phase 2 plan to allow players and coaches to return to training. It is hoped that those plans will be approved shortly before Phase 2 commences.

“Any approval and potential return to cricket activity announced by the Scottish Government around the 18th of June (Phase 2) would only take effect from the 1st of July so at present there is no cricket activity permitted.

“I will keep you updated with all progress with this matter.

“Look out for new posts as the information unfolds!”
