COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic
In these strange and unprecedented times I write to you as Chairman of our club.
Over the coming months we are all going to be faced with challenges both from a personal and collective viewpoint as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Quite simply we will work ourselves through this uncertain time as we always have done in times of difficulty.
If you are finding things difficult during this time of uncertainty please pick up the phone for a chat, and we can do all we can as a club to help during these difficult times. In concise terms the club is here to support you wherever possible.
At the time of writing this letter we have received notification from the Leicestershire and Rutland Cricket League that initial senior fixtures will not start until Saturday 4th July 2020. Further discussion on promotion and relegation will undertaken at the next league meeting which is set for 16th April 2020. We are also working around the same timetable for junior and ladie’s cricket.
As you would expect the club facilities are closed until further notice and this includes without exception the club bar facility. Obviously there are clear Government rules at the current time involving social distancing which include legal penalties.
Once circumstances change we will be contact with you which will utilise the club website www.systontowncricketclub.co.uk and social media pages.
We will get through this difficult time, and I eagerly await the time when I can raise a glass with you on the pavilion balcony welcoming the return of the great game to our club.
