Caerphilly Lockdown Statement
Cricket Wales are aware of the reported increased local
lockdown measures that are due to be put place today, Tuesday 8th September,
in the Caerphilly County Borough Council Area.
We continue to liaise with Sport Wales and the Welsh
Sports Association and will monitor whether there is likely to be any further impact on sports
participation, save for the clear, strict restriction on people entering or
leaving the Borough Council area, without good reason, for the foreseeable
We will be in touch with all clubs concerned directly,
but in this specific case, clubs, and participants inside or close to the
Borough are advised that they should not leave or travel into
the Borough of Caerphilly from 6pm tonight.
Players, volunteers and officials who live in the
Borough, but have connections to clubs outside Caerphilly, must also not travel
outside of the area, while restrictions are in place.
We would like to take this opportunity to remind all
clubs and participants of the necessity to continue to adhere to the guidelines
issued jointly by Cricket Wales and the England & Wales Cricket Board, as
well as respecting all standing Welsh Government regulations with regards to
social distancing and gatherings.
It is critical that sport - and, in our case, cricket -
continues to be part of the potential solution to this health crisis and is NOT
part of the problem.
Further updates will be posted on our social channels and
website as soon as they are available.
