Chairman’s Welcome 2019/20 Season

Chairman’s Message

Welcome to all players to the new season. It’s great to see player numbers tracking well and strong sides named for the opening round of competition this coming weekend (5 October). Hopefully the weather plays its part…

Just a reminder around player & spectator behaviour – and specifically the Metro Cricket Code of conduct. The code is published in the Metro Handbook for the new season and these have been provided to all team captains.

Along with that I’ve spoken to each individual captain to ensure they understand the required behavioural standards – both of Metro Cricket &, just as importantly, of our Club & Committee.
