For all activity, social distancing of at least two metres must be maintained at all times (except between members of the same household). I have deleted aspects not relevant to LMCC (such as indoor cricket).

  • Playing cricket individually is permitted e.g. practice of individual cricket skills or fitness activities
  • Playing cricket with people living in your household is permitted.
  • Small group cricket activity, training or fitness in groups of no more than six (6), is permitted, keeping two (2) metres apart at all times.
  • It is permissible for two or more groups of six (6) to train at the same time provided they are kept separate, and social distancing and strict hygiene measures are observed and subject to a risk assessment to determine the maximum capacity for their facility.
  • Clubhouses can be reopened in a limited way for operational reasons (e.g. for access to first aid equipment).
  • Toilet facilities can be opened if the venue wishes, but particular care should be taken by those using them and those cleaning them. Where they are open, venues must ensure soap and water is provided and they are cleaned regularly.
  • We recommend using your own equipment if possible. If equipment is being shared, please follow UK Government’s guidance on the sharing of equipment. Players should stick to using one ball in training either by bringing their own or being assigned a numbered ball that is cleaned in between sessions.
  • No saliva or sweat should be applied to the ball at any time.
  • Wash hands at home before and after using the outdoor facilities. Bring your own hand sanitiser where possible.

The England and Wales Cricket Board issued a statement on 28th May to say that recreational cricket will remain suspended until further notice, but with a suggestion that it may be able to commence after 1st August 2020. For more information, see https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/cricket/52831969.

crowdfundHi Guys

I have set up a crowdfunding page to help raise some funds while we are not playing cricket. If we raise £218 the ECB will give £100 for free. I didn’t think it was an opportunity to miss. We can go higher than the £218 so don’t worry if we do.

My suggestion is that we all put in £10 (more if you wish) which will take us very close to the target figure. Also, if we each send the link to friends & family via emails or social media we should surpass it easily. Sandy cricket club started theirs 10 days ago and raised over £500 in 5 days! I know they are a bigger club but it hasn’t stopped there!

The link is https://www.spacehive.com/littlemundencc

You pledge by direct debit (a one off dd) but money not taken till the target is reached. The money is paid out to the club in June.

I’ve started the ball rolling with £20, so do give it some publicity.

Stay safe everyone and hopefully see you sometime later in the summer.

Best to all


As far as I understand the situation, the current plans for the Tees HEBL competition are

  • There will be no League cricket before 1st July 2020
  • Leagues will adhere to normal playing conditions (match days, playing rules etc.)
  • There will be no relegation or promotion this season
  • Clubs can continue to play after the normal end of the season, but with no penalisation of clubs unable to do so (eg. grounds shared with football clubs)
  • Friendlies before the 1st July start of the season are allowed, if the ground is in playing condition.

The planned start of the League season may change, depending on Government and ECB advice

Fixtures 2020

The Fixtures for the 2020 Tees Law HEBL League have now been published. Little Munden are in Division 3 (of four). This will have eight teams, but throough a combination of the League and two “mini-leagues” leading to a cup final, we are assured of 17 games over the summer. The fixture are shown to the right. “HEBL” fixtures are main league games, and “Cup” fixtures are for the mini-league and Cup final.

LMCC AGM and Awards Night

The Club’s Annual General meeting will be held on Friday 31st January 2020 at 7.30 pm, at The Boot in Dane End. The AGM will be combined with Prize Night. All are welcome to attend.

The development of the new league goes on a pace. The key developments have been:-

  1. The League will be called the Herts and Essex Local League, and contain 36 teams from 31 clubs. I would expect something like 2 divisions of 10 teams and 2 divisions of 8 teams, with teams in th smaller divisions playing some other teams three times, rathen than twice, to ensure a full season.
  2. The sponsors of HECL, Tees Law, will continue their sponsorship of the new league.
  3. The season is planned to start on 2nd May. We have pencilled in a friendly against Watton on April 12th (Easter Sunday)
  4. League Officers are required, and anyone who wants to get involved would be a welcome volunteer.

There will be a meeting at the time and place above to talk through the implications of a proposed split in the HECL League. This will be important for the future of the club and affect the range of clubs we play in coming seasons. All club members are invited, and we hope that as many as possible will attend.

Thanks to the 7 who turned up at nets, it was a more than decent work out with some quality batting and bowling on display.

The newly slimmed down Ashley and James showed how their fitness has improved after shedding a few pounds over the Winter break. Others in attendance were Boycie, Will, Dave B, Chris and Badger.

Chris is away for the next two weeks, hopefully more of you will come along next week to show your ambition to be part of LM2019!
