We had to play a regionalised format last season to cut down travel so I think there is still an outstanding questions as to whether it will be possible to play a normal fixture list with some covid precautions or whether a regional structure will be needed again

Yes this is true

Our league (well the lower end of it) have already done this - but I think that is more to encourage more players to play at that level

All the papers this morning reporting March 29th which is great news.

I hope the ECB are a bit quicker off the mark this time, as this announcement will give them time to set out rules and regs etc...

Given they've got a month to prepare, and already have a perfectly functional plan signed off from last summer, I'd expect an announcement in April about a plan to be published in June around a restart in mid August for a 2 week season.

Would possibly expect a start after the 17th May, also noting comments about toilet facilities etc

Initial call from HR was right which is good! But we've been told that due to the way our supply chain operates we are unlikely to open until May.

Means more time to dedicate to cricket though! We've got a full preseason scheduled from 17th April until end of league season, 14 Sunday games and aiming for 8-10 midweek games.

Thats absolutely ridiculous.

Almost every league I know of (bar yours) is pencilled in for a full season. Seems a brainless decision to me!

Id be kicking up stink if our county board did that. Surely people have waited long enough to play.

To add on an extra month to the Governments timeline is a disgrace. Sack the board! Cricket a month after pub beer gardens 😂 who are these people?

But today's announcement specifically says that, on 29th March, ' Formally organised outdoor sports for adults and under 18s - can also restart and will not be subject to the gatherings limits, but should be compliant with guidance issued by national governing bodies.'

Trying to look around for clubs in the East London area having moved here late last year; but after getting turned down by a few clubs saying they would be unlikely to give me a game feel a bit deflated about it all...

For what reason? Most clubs where i live will take all the players they can

Hopefully you find somewhere to play soon
