Information for visitors:

Did you know we have a page of directions and local information you can share with managers of visiting teams:

https://www.saffronwaldencricket.co.uk/information_for_visitors

Directions for other grounds in the area are here

The Managers’ Handbook is available HERE (word doc) or HERE (pdf file). All managers are required to read this, please. A revised version will be available soon, but most of this is still useful.

You should note there have been quite a few changes since the last edition:

– gate access to County High (what happens Sunday mornings / midweek evenings when no Cinema).

– updated ECB helmet guidance

– updated ECB fast bowling restrictions

– added in groundsmen contact numbers & requirements (e.g. bowlers markers etc)

– updated SWCHS pavilion instructions

– highlighted key phone numbers & e-mail addresses

Re access to SWCHS, Michele and Glyn are happy to act as keyholder so you can pick up, unlock, lock up and drop off the keys as needed. Michele is happy to train people on the locking and unlocking of the Pavilion. Please ring Michele to arrange this.

Please try and re-arrange cancelled games.  Have a look at the latest Fixture Planner and email Dave Hancock with suggested date(s). He will then confirm which date(s) are still available and reserve a date so you can get back to the opposition. Please copy Dave in on all attempts to re-arrange games so we can monitor which oppositions are most “awkward”. If necessary we can involve the respective Boards.

Also, please note at the end of matches all plastic chairs are to be stacked in the Pavilion not the Clubhouse.

Age Groups 2022 – this may help avoid arguments! It is club policy that children play in their age groups. This prevents too many players being moved up into higher age groups, which weakens the younger group and results in the weaker players in the higher groups not being developed properly. Obviously there has to be the possibility of flexibility, especially in the older squads, but this must be based on the decision of the coach, not the parents.
