There is a lot for clubs to do. Clubs are required to complete the Action Checklist and undertake a Covid-19 Risk Assessment and publish this to all users. Prior to the start of the League Competitive Programme on 1 August clubs are required to confirm in writing to the League Secretary that this has been completed. Any club that fails to do this will not be able to take part.

The ECB, LCF and our own Restart Group have worked hard to get the return cricket to this stage. Our aim has always been to provide clubs with a safe, practical and competitive format of cricket for all that want to play. We have done our best and with everyones support and cooperation and some flexibility, we look forward to a competitive cricket programme in August and September.
