Bryan Bainbridge, the DCCA President and League Secretary, has sent this message to all clubs:
In view of the uncertainty caused by the Coronavirus situation, it has been decided to suspend all matches in the Durham County League from Tuesday 17 March. The situation will be reviewed mid-April and a decision will be made at that time.
South Shields A have clearly won the A Division, and South Shields B are all but mathematically certain to win the B Division.
The final rounds of the Ron Evers Tournament, due to be played on Tuesday 17 March, have also been postponed. It is hoped to play the final rounds in the summer on an appropriate date.
The future of the DCCA Congress, due to be held in early May, must also be seriously in doubt, though at the present moment no definite decision has been made.
The ECF has posted their guidance to leagues: this can be read at ECF and coronavirus guidance
Any comments please let me know. Please inform everyone in your club.
Kind regards, Bryan
