Welcome to Lavant Cricket Club

Absolutely brilliant from Danny and family. Soul Limbo as you’ve never heard it before at 8pm on 28th May 2020 when we clapped for the NHS, all dressed up no where to go to play cricket.

One advantage of being on furlough during the current isolation period is that a lot clearing out is being done. Dave found this team photo of the victorious team when they won the Downland Cup in 1991 for the one and only time. The players’ names have been added underneath the photo; how many do you recognise today.

COVID-19 Implications

We are following the ECB and Government guidelines and cancelling all training and matches until further notice. The ECB statement is below.

Dear all,

Following the Government’s latest advice around social distancing, it is with sadness and reluctance that we recommend that all forms of recreational cricket are for now suspended. This extends to training, pre-season friendlies and any associated cricket activity.

Sport plays an absolutely vital role in the nation’s mental and physical wellbeing, and it helps people find meaning where there is fear and uncertainty, so one of our goals in the coming weeks will be to explore ways that we can support some levels of physical activity in communities – particularly at junior levels.

Using our cricket community to support others could be one of the most important services we can offer during the difficult next few months. It will be critical that any decisions we do make are medically-led. And we will continue to work with Government and their advisors to ensure we are informed by science in our decision making. Over the coming weeks we will work with the game to understand what support is required across the cricket community, particularly local clubs and leagues.

We understand that countless hours of work from thousands of volunteers have already gone into getting ready for the 2020 season and we know how disappointing this will be. We are thankful for the huge role that volunteers play in local cricket, to ensure the game remains at the heart of communities.

We know that you and your clubs can play an important role in bringing your community together once we get past this period of time.
