Accy visitors in mid-season turnaround

The weekend’s activities at the Log Cabin begin on Friday (2nd July) with the return of Junior Practice at 6pm.

With no cricket scheduled for Saturday, the clubhouse is expected to be busy for the England v Ukraine Euro 2020 quarter-final tie at 8pm but please remember that due to Covid regulations we have significantly reduced capacity inside.

The club is only allowed to entertain 25 in both the members’ bar and pool room and 50 in the function room, so it would be advisable to get down early to ensure you get a seat and table.

If we reach capacity we unfortunately WILL NOT be able to let anyone in although members wishing to sit outside the club are most welcome.

The clubhouse is open from 12 noon on both Saturday and Sunday.

Sunday sees the first eleven entertain Accrington in the turnaround fixture of the season’s opening day. Meanwhile, the seconds travel to Thorneyholme Road to play Accy’s second string. Wickets are pitched in both matches at 1pm.

Ironman road closures on Sunday

Spectators are advised that due to the Bolton Ironman competition a number of roads in the Greenmount and Tottington area – including Holcombe Road – are closed for a number of hours on Sunday, 4th July.

While people with local knowledge will be able to make their way to the club for the game, Accrington supporters arriving from a northerly direction should take the following route in order not to be delayed.

  1. Head through Ramsbottom on on the A676 towards Greenmount
  2. Turn left at the Hare and Hounds in Holcombe Brook taking the B6214 towards Bury 
  3. You will pass the Holcombe Brook Post Office and Holcombe Brook Primary School both on your left hand side
  4. About 150 meters after Holcombe Brook Primary School, turn right onto Vernon Road
  5. At the end of Vernon Road turn left onto Brandlesholme Road and you will see Greenmount CC after 50 metres on the right hand side.

Covid regulations

We have already touched on Covid regulations in relation to capacity inside the clubhouse, but can we also remind you that masks need to be worn inside and table service is required for the purchase of alcohol inside, as it is outside.

Please also remember that you need to remain seated when drinking outside so that unfortunately means no walking around with alcohol either inside or outside.

Visitors are kindly requested to log onto the track and trace app or give their details to waiting on staff whilst track and trace details will be automatically collected for members when they order.
