our communication yesterday, I want to provide you with some more information about
the forthcoming cricket season for our junior cricketers.
Much as we
hate to do this, with the latest social distancing measures being recommended
by the government, we have decided to delay the start of the summer training in
late April until a later date, still to be decided. We also expect the junior
fixtures to be delayed, though Bucks Cricket have yet to confirm this.
Our ECB All
Stars sessions beginning in May are also likely to be delayed but we have not
yet received any guidance from the ECB.
We have also
decided to cancel the Easter camps. And the cricket nets at Dukes Wood will not
be available to use until the cricket season starts. We feel that with the club
house closed, this is the prudent thing to do.
programme of Winter nets at Beaconsfield High School run by Nigel Bruce and
Future Legends is still scheduled to carry on until April 4th.
many of you have already sent in your subscriptions for the upcoming season at
GXCC for which we are grateful. Now that the season looks likely to be
curtailed, we will in due course send you an appropriate proportional refund
depending on how much cricket we lose.
of you who have yet to send in your subscriptions, we understand why you may have
been hesitating. But it would be helpful for you to let us know whether your
youngsters will be playing this year when the season finally gets under way. And since we are a club that depends on cash
flow to meet ongoing expenses, we would be really grateful if you could send in
your subscriptions too, but failing that, a message of intention to play would
conclude, sorry to bring you such disappointing news, even if it is not
completely unsurprising. As the current situation evolves, we will keep you up
to date with any changes in our plans as soon as we know them.
