I hope that people are staying safe and well during these tough times.
For many clubs today would have been the date of the first game of their season. It is of course desperately disappointing that instead of attempting to remember which end of bat to hold we have had to spend the time at home cooped up inside our homes.
There are not huge updates to come this week – but I wanted to flag one update in particular from the county and also to make everyone aware of some up coming meetings.
- The County provided an excellent update yesterday – especially around funding opportunities. We have been made aware that some clubs have already had some funding secured through the many grants available. Please see the full update with details of grants here https://www.essexcricket.org.uk/2020/04/17/recreational-season-update-friday-17-april/
- I have a conference call with the ECB Wednesday afternoon.
- We have a League Exec meeting via conference call on Wednesday.
Please let me know anything in particular you would like me to raise for either meeting.
I will provide a further update at the end of next week – obviously this will cover decisions on the first league and league cup games.
Please do stay safe and I will update again next week.
