COLWYN Bay Cricket Club hope to reopen their facilities soon after getting the green light from the sport’s governing body.

The England and Wales Cricket Board announced that outdoor playing areas can now be used under social distancing restrictions for club members, and the Liverpool and District Competition Division One side said officials are “currently considering” all guidelines before making formal plans public.

A Twitter post from the club, read: “The club are currently considering all of the ECB guidelines and will announce plans in due course. We hope to have training facilities open soon.”

The ECB confirmed that clubs can reopen their outfields for outdoor sports activity that complies with government guidance.

They have also been given the approval to use cricket nets on an ‘every other net’ basis in accordance with social distancing guidelines. The ECB is requesting that a representative from the club to be on-site at all times while their facilities are open for use.

When outdoor nets and outfields are closed and there is general open access, closed signage should be clear and visible to inform the public that this area is not available for use.

Club buildings, which include changing rooms and any bar area, together with other communal areas are to remain closed to reduce the risk of interaction.

It remains to be seen whether Colwyn Bay can return to the field in a competitive setting this season, with no final conclusion yet made regarding the potential of any play.
