Support Cherry Tree CC through COVID 19

As a club run by volunteers we rely on incoming funds from membership and organised functions in order to cover our ongoing costs. During the current situation our income streams have all but dried up. Many people have asked how they can support the club through these testing times. We  thought we would arrange some options to generate funds that will be used for the club to ensure its ready to bounce back when its safe to do so. We are planning some virtual / online events open to all to have a bit of fun while supporting your club.

Fundraising events are run through our various social media platforms, and for more information on specific events please refer to our Facebook and Twitter pages. However, payment for the events should be made with the links below. All entries are subject to funds clearing in in the clubs PayPal account. Any winnings will be repaid to individual via the PayPal account they used to enter.

Cricket Force 2020 postponed

In the current situation we have no option but to postpone the planned Cricket Force day. Once we are able to rearrange we will do. At that point it will be more urgent than ever to get the ground up and running quickly and hopefully play some cricket. In the meantime stay home and stay safe.

Ribblesdale Cricket league start postponed

The Ribblesdale cricket league competed in by our senior teams have taken the decision to delay the start of the season see below:

Due to the unprecedented situation we all find ourselves in and in support of the Government’s actions/announcements to try and stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus the RCL League will not be commencing on the 18th April 2020. This includes ALL leagues Senior and Junior.

This position will be reviewed on a regular basis with hopefully the first review being mid to end of May 2020 and if there is a chance to start some form of cricket competition in say June if not then July.  There will be time to decide on the format once the picture becomes much clearer.

Any new start date to the season I would like to be a co-ordinated one between all the local Leagues as to ensure player retention for each league.

 I realise that some clubs have Pro’s signed and sponsors to please but this situation cannot be helped and with the Government announcing no global travel for the next 30 days and most countries worldwide closing their borders I would be surprised if any overseas (Pro’s or Am’s) would get here.

What this means for Cherry Tree with no training and no matches there will be no cricket played in the short term. However we are hopeful as all are that the situation improves and we all get to see some cricket played @ Cherry this summer. Rightly so our members, players and community have to come first so we understand these decisions and support fully. We will update you here and on socials when we know more.
