We now have the sad news that our club president, Gordon Cheeseman, died on Monday morning, 22nd June. This follows the recent deaths of his brother, Cyril (see below) and his wife Sally. Gordon was also a club member for many years and made great contributions, especially to the construction of the ‘old’ clubhouse. The club sends sincere condolences to the Cheeseman family, especially to Steve, at this very difficult time. Arrangements for Gordon’s funeral will be announced shortly.
It is with great sadness that we report the death of Cyril Cheeseman. Cyril was a club member for many, many years and held the post of Chairman until 2008 when he stood down. During his time as Chairman he was recognised by National Playing Fields Association, awarding him their President’s Award, which he received from HRH Duke of Edinburgh. The club has much to thank Cyril for and he will be sadly missed by many in the village. On behalf of all club members we pass on our sincere condolences to the Cheeseman family at this very difficult time and already mourning for Sally Cheeseman.
We have had some positive news with regards to ECB guidelines. It is necessary for the club to brief all players and comply with ECB requirements.
The key update in the guidance is the allowance of small group sizes (now up to six individuals) to train, ensuring people keep two meters apart at all times.
This means that BRCC can run small group sessions, of up to six people including the coach. We must also comply with ECB safeguarding policies. As the outfield is large enough we can have multiple separate groups at the same time. It is very important we follow the guidelines listed below.
1) You must confirm before arrival your attendance, you cannot just turn up as it doesn’t comply with ECB rules.
2) If you have any covid symptoms please do not attend.
3) Once allocated you are not allowed to handle other peoples balls, please also bring your own kit as sharing kit isn’t permitted and must be kept in your bag when not in use.
4) Please bring hand sanitizer, wash your hands and abide by the 2M social distancing regulations.
The first scheduled training session for U13/15 on Friday 12th June between 6pm until 7:30pm.
Senior Training is scheduled on Wednesday 10th June between 6:30 and 8pm and you must confirm your attendance with your captain. Rockets first scheduled training session is Sunday 14th June between 11 and 12, please confirm your attendance with Paul Smith.
