Welcome to Kettlewell Fuels Nidderdale Junior Cricket League 

The Kettlewell Fuels Nidderdale Junior Cricket League, part of the larger Nidderdale and District Amateur Cricket League, is made up of Nidderdale-based cricket clubs with 19 clubs now entering junior teams.

An update from the League Committee - Covid-19

As a League we provide the opportunity for children to play cricket. We prepare the fixtures and administer the age groups. A reduced programme of fixtures is now in place.

We take direction from the governing bodies of cricket, the ECB and YCB and during the pandemic, pass on advice and guidance from the government and health agencies.

We have forwarded all the communications received from ECB and YCB that we have received. Please see the link for the latest advice from the ECB here.

The onus is on clubs to carry out their own risk assessments and make all the necessary arrangements to keep their children, coaches and supporters safe and healthy t all times but more especially during this Covid 19 pandemic.

We have provided the opportunity for clubs to enter teams at all our usual age groups, there is absolutely no compunction for clubs to play if they choose not to.

Likewise there is no issue if a club decided to only play a few of the programmed games. There will be no sanctions against clubs who decide to take this line. Each club must decide what is best for its junior players given the unique circumstances at each club,

The Junior Committee would like to highlight some salient points which are taken directly from the guidance already issued:

  • Clubs should keep a register of all those who attend a cricket match, this register should be retained for 21 days after the match.
  • Clubs should send a copy of their risk assessment to all opposition teams prior to any game taking place.
  • Games are to be halted after every 6 overs in order that players can sanitise. This period can be less but never more. For example for pairs cricket you may decide to sanitise at the swap over of batmen (4 overs) in order to keep the game flowing as much as possible. Perhaps reducing 20 over games to 18 in order to have 2 sanitisation stops rather than 3.
  • If there is a requirement for equipment to be shared it should be fully sanitised in line with the guidance prior to reuse.
