Cricket recommences post Coronavirus Pandemic
The club restarted cricket on 18th July, in the newly restructured for 2020 Cotswold Hills League season. We will essentially have 5 matches with the possibility of qualifying for knockout stages at the end of the season.
We are not operating both of our Saturday sides this season but still encourage past and present players wanting a game to get in touch.
All the activity has to follow the guidelines set out set out by the Government and ECB, which has meant cricket isn't quite as we know it but nonetheless enjoyable to be back out on the pitch.
Junior cricket recommences (including All Stars)
As the restrictions on sport and cricket have been lifted we have been equally keen to provide junior cricket once again.
Under 11's and Under 13's practice on Friday evenings at the ground 18:30-20:00. Both age groups are represented in their respective Cotswold Hills League age group leagues. Please get in touch if more information required.
The ECB have approved the All Stars program going ahead, for which we have been empowered to decide how and when this can take place.
We are running the scheme over 5 days from 10th-14th August, 14:00-15:00.

Thanks to all those involved, with special mention for Mr Martin Jones who worked tirelessly to make this happen.
