North West Metropolitan Cricket Association:

All NWMCA Clubs
There has been many a rumour and speculation regarding the 2020/2021 cricket season and local community sport in general.
The current situation is that the Association is planning for a normal season start for all grades (weekend of 3rd October 2020)
A number of sub-committees are working towards a season start with this date.
We have agreed, as have some other associations, to a possible delayed start late October or earlier November. We need to be agile and flexible in our planning and scheduling.
Discussions I have had with the EDFL has indicated that no decision has been made as to an intended start or finish to the local football competition.
Cricket and Football associations (together with other sporting bodies such as Soccer, Rugby, Baseball), are awaiting direction from the Government both State and Local regarding the crowd sizes, running of functions etc.
Our advice to clubs it to assume that we are going to start as planned. Please commence giving consideration to team compositionS as grading and drafting of fixtures will commence in the coming months.
Should any “concrete” decision be made that affects our Association’s season commencement or conclusion, clubs will be advised as soon as we are aware.
