Under the current ECB and Government regulations spectators are not allowed so please help us to comply by staying away from the ground. There is a limit of 30 people allowed and that includes the players, umpires, ground staff and scorers. The LCB have told us that they will be checking grounds over the weekend for any infringements of these regulations. 

Both matches however will be on Play Cricket so you will be able to keep an eye on the scores and individual performances. We will also try to post updates on Twitter when we can.

Good luck to all the players for this weekend and the season ahead.
