TOFT Cricket Club are planning for the resumption of cricket from March 29 as per Government guidance with the easing of lockdown restrictions.

Club officials are still awaiting confirmation as to when the Cheshire County Cricket League season will start and whether there will be any restrictions in play.

There are some more definitive plans to announce though.

A return date has been confirmed for women and girls’ cricket at Toft – Friday, April 23 from 6.30pm to 8pm – open to returning players or new ones, all ages and abilities whether they have played the sport before or not.

For the first few weeks training and practicing will be with use of the square on the outfield.

A soft ball league has been entered for which selection will be done on a rotational basis.

There will also be opportunities for Toft to host other clubs in friendly games.

“We also plan to host at least one ‘festival’ whereby several other clubs come down in a tournament style,” says a club statement.

The women and girls’ cricket will form part of the club’s planned Friday ‘Family Nights’ where the junior s on the development All Stars programme will be training from 5pm to 6pm, under 15s in the nets from 6pm. The barbecue will be lit, bar open and music playing.

Anyone interested in taking part in the women and girls cricket should register their interest with Jimmy Lomas on 07795 171359.

Toft will be having two three-day coaching camps over Easter for children aged 7 to 13.

Course one is April 7-9 and the second is April 12-14, both from 10am-3pm.

Officials have been busy getting things ready to re-open once the restrictions allow, with a clubhouse re-opening planned for Thursday, April 15, when there will be a Taverners charity game.

The club’s nets have had a full makeover, with much thicker netting which will be connected to the floor to provide greater security.
