Further to last week’s statement regarding the Covid-19 outbreak at the club.
All affected 1st XI players have been in self isolation during this past week and a number have now exited the isolation period.
From the playing eleven which took the field against Horsford we have now had 6 positive PCR tests. In addition, other club members, generally close family contacts of affected players, have also tested positive.
After consultation with the East Anglian Premier League this week, we can confirm our scheduled home game against Bury St Edmunds this Saturday on The Common is POSTPONED as we will still have a minimum of four of our 1st XI in isolation this coming weekend. All other club fixtures will proceed as normal.
We have also had contact from Norfolk County Council’s Local Outbreak team who have provided advice to the club which has been passed on to the players concerned.
We have continued to liaise with the Norfolk Cricket Board, Read Brothers East Anglian Premier League and Cecil Amey Opticians Norfolk Cricket Alliance to update all on the developments.
We continue to review the impact on our coaching team with regards to our All Stars and Dynamos sessions and Tuesday’s youth practice evenings.
We will update more when we can.
