Accrington Cricket Club

Club Statement
Thursday June 10th 2021

Over the course of the last few days we have been informed that some of the senior playing squad have tested positive for Covid.

First and foremost our thoughts are with those affected and as a club we will be doing everything we can to support them.

In light of the above and after discussions with the League the decision has been made that all of the 1st and 2nd team games scheduled for this Friday and Sunday will be postponed as a precaution.

We have also taken the decision to close the clubhouse completely for the time being and carry out a deep clean, and also to suspend all other cricket activities at the club.

This means that junior training / All Stars on Friday 11th June will be cancelled as will the U9 game away at Longridge on Sunday.

Please note this only affects cricket, tennis activities will carry on as normal as the tennis section operate in a self-contained area of the ground.

The safety of all players, spectators and visitors both at our own club and at other league clubs is paramount and we hope everyone understands and supports the decisions that have been made.

If anyone has any concerns please contact me on 07949 610512 or email

Further updates will be issued after the weekend, in the meantime I hope everyone stays safe and follows the guidance
