Due to the prevailing weather conditions and forecast (showers arriving Saturday afternoon), the ECA Turf Wicket Committee (TWC) advises clubs that the laying of covers tonight (Friday 7 December 2018) is OPTIONAL (subject to any instructions from ground managers or curators). Clubs are not required to obtain permission from the TWC for the non-laying of covers.
Where clubs have been advised by ground managers that covers must be laid on Friday nights regardless of weather conditions, clubs must liaise with their respective ground managers/curators before deciding not to lay covers.
Covers and hessian are to be laid on Saturday night for ECA Veterans matches on Sunday.
