« Winter nets in full swing | Main | Cricket restarts »

May 21, 2020


These are melancholy times for cricketers everywhere, and Chigs members are grieving the tragic waste of some of the most spectacular and sustained fine spring weather we have had for some years. We were looking forward to working closely with our friends at Fives & Heronians playing our Sunday games at their beautiful ground, the Paddock, although this will need to wait a little longer than we had anticipated. We are hopeful, although perhaps not optimistic, that at least some cricket may be able to take place later in the year. There is no immediate prospect of matches restarting until at least July 1st but the committee is monitoring the ECB guidance and taking regular part in discussions with other clubs and leagues. If there comes a time this summer when cricket can restart, we will be ready to recommence - with appropriate measures in place.

In other news, skipper Rob Allum is on the wireless this evening on the splendid 98 Not Out cricket show on Brentwood's Phoenix 98FM Radio. The show starts at 18.00 and Rob is on at around 19.00 - talking about cricket, music and other assorted nonsense.
