Statement by NoSCA Exec 26th March 2020


Due to the current unprecedented challenge of coronavirus (Covid-19), the NoSCA executive, in line with guidance issued from Cricket Scotland, has decided to postpone the start of the NoSCA season until the first weekend in June (2nd weekend if clubs need additional time to prepare their ground) and are in the process of looking at a couple of different schedules starting in June and July, both of which will depend on the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the measures put in place to combat it.

As a result of this:

  • No printed handbook will be published for the season; a handbook in PDF form is planned and should be made available on the NoSCA website once a confirmed schedule is possible.

  • Due to the uncertainty around the number of games that will be played, ball requirements will be difficult to confirm. NoSCA will acquire a stock of balls that clubs will be able to order from during the season. Any surplus will be used for the following season.

  • Executive meetings/business will be conducted by an alternative means until rules on group gathering are eased.

The NoSCA executive appreciate that this may well be detrimental to the future of cricket in the North of Scotland, but the safety and health of players, their families and the general population is more important. We wish you all the best and believe that with your assistance and understanding that cricket here will be able to return when the time is right.
