Dear all,


We hope you are all well and eager for the start of summer training. I appreciate its been a tough 12 months and we are all ready to try and get back to something like normality. The ECB have published their roadmap for cricket to restart and its really important that we stick to the rules as we come out of lockdown and follow the ECB guidance. I enclose details of the playing plan summary which explains the measures we all should take, please take time to read this document. The roadmap is also attached for further information.

With Covid restrictions still in place we thought it better if all registrations & payments could be completed on-line so there will be no registration evening this year.

A registration form is attached but it will help us enormously if you could register using the online Google form available online here is the link and pay via the PayPal ‘Make Payments’ section on the payments link on the home page of the Attenborough CC website Forms can be handed in with payments at training if you are not able to do it online.

Our Safe Hands Policy, Club Codes of Conduct are also attached.

The junior membership fee for 2021 is £50 ( which is the same as the last few years ) to cover the 19 weeks of training. We continue to offer a discount for any siblings so a 2nd child’s junior membership is £35 and £25 for any further children registered e.g. if you register two players then the total fee is £85. There is no extra charge for junior matches in any age group. These options are all available on the website under the ‘payments’ link, the 3 options being ( Junior Playing, Two Juniors & Three Juniors ).

Parents who receive income support, income-based jobseekers allowance, working tax credit (but not child tax credit) or disabled persons tax credit may contact Carl Knight in confidence to discuss financial assistance.
