Scarborough Roses Match Increasingly Unlikely

Scarborough Roses Match Increasingly Unlikely

Published by Matthew Pells at 6:01am 6th April 2020.

The Vice President of Scarborough Cricket club thinks it is increasingly unlikely that the town will get to host the Yorkshire v Lancashire roses match this summer.

While no decisions have yet been made about the cricket season beyond the end of May, Bill Mustoe thinks the match at North Marine Road in June is now very doubtful.

Bill says the club has been prudent in recent years and is in a strong position to survive the COVID-19 shutdown, but that it would be hit if the Yorkshire 50/50 matches it was due to host this summer and June's County Championship clash with Lancashire are called off.

Scarborough Cricket Club took the decision to ‘furlough’ its staff due to the COVID-19 pandemic at the end of March and North Marine Road has been closed in accordance with the government’s ongoing advice during the nationwide 'lockdown'. Volunteers will carry out only necessary tasks during this lockdown period.

Chief Executive Rob Richtering posted on the clubs website..

"At this unprecedented time, we have taken this positive step to protect Scarborough Cricket Club at a time when it has no income stream. By taking advantage of the government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, we are able to preserve jobs at the club during such a difficult financial period.

The Club’s Ticket Office and Club Shop (including online sales) will not be in operation until further notice. Hospitality sales and queries will not be taken during this time. Any queries etc will be dealt with once our staff have returned safely to work. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding at this unprecedented and traumatic time for our business and our country. Stay safe, and we will contact you once there has been a successful resolution to this awful pandemic."
