After almost 18 months of Woodland’s not seeing any cricket, it was definitely good to be back! A great start to the season for both the 1st & 2nd teams with both of them securing victory at their matches. Our 1st team played away at Townsville and won by 10 runs, scoring a total of 168 runs. Our 2nd team played at home against Lightcliffe, scoring 221 for 8 winning by 2 wickets. Brilliant play and well done. Keep it up lads!
You may be aware there has been some confusion over whether spectators are allowed to attend cricket games. The League, following consultation with the ECB, have contacted all clubs and advised spectators are NOT allowed to attend games until 17 May. This includes watching games from your own car. You are permitted to attend & enjoy hospitality facilities but you must be sat at a table at all times (other than going to the toilet), remain socially distant and purchase food or drink. Table service must be provided.Please see the link below which contains the letter we have received from David Young, Chairman of the Gordon Rigg Bradford Premier League.view the letter here

The Bradford League held their AGM recently and a number of new rules have been introduced. The main rule change is that all games will start at 12.30 and not 1pm as it was previously. All the rule changes and the COVID-19 road map can be viewed here.
Although we are waiting for ECB and Government confirmation, we anticipate starting the season on the 17th April.
