4 Aug 2020 - ECB Adaptive Play - Notice for all clubs and players

4 Aug 2020

August 4, 2020

This note serves as a reminder to all Clubs that we must follow the ECB adaptive play guidance. We have now been playing for 2 weeks and the vast majority of clubs are following the guidance to the letter but we hear of others that are not in our own and other leagues.

Changing Rooms are not to be used as changing rooms.
Players are to arrive changed.
The ECB have allowed the use of the changing room for an individual for putting pads and box on and the use of any connected toilet in a controlled manner. 

Showers are not to be used whatsoever.

Drinks- players must provide their own drinks. Clubs are not to provide these.


Whilst these are different conditions for our matches the last thing we want is any adverse behaviour and therefore all players should take to the field knowing they must respect the officials, respect their opponents and respect the game. 

There has been some poor behaviour from individuals over the last weekend who have let down their team mates and clubs and have not respected the game or the officials. 

The League will not tolerate poor discipline on the field of play.

In summary,
As we all know, the situation we find ourselves in is severe and unprecedented and we must follow the guidance, it’s our responsibility for the safety of our family and friends and each other. This cant be stressed enough.
