EAPL season suspended until further notice

Updated: Jun 5, 2020

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) released a statement on the 18th of March 2020 announcing that they will be suspending all forms of recreational cricket until further notice due to the outbreak of COVID-19.

“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."

The Government have since announced an easing of some lockdown measures on Sunday the 10th of May, however, the ECB were quick to stress that their recommendation to suspend recreational cricket, "remains in place at present".

They went on to say they will be working closely with the Government to establish when and how it will be safe to resume play.

The suspension of the recreational game does include the East Anglian Premier Cricket League and we will update you as soon as we hear any further news.
