It has been confirmed that Nottinghamshire’s forthcoming Second XI fixture, starting on Monday 5 July against Worcestershire at Lady Bay, will take place behind closed doors.

The decision has been made due to the operational requirements to ensure compliance with current guidelines and the measures to restrict the spread of Covid-19.

The facilities at Trent Bridge are currently allowing measures to be implemented for a limited number of spectators to attend first team fixtures. Such arrangements, however, are not practical at Lady Bay.

Supporters will be able to follow the fortunes of the team live via the club website, and it is hoped that we will be able to welcome spectators for the block of four-day fixtures taking place in August.

Those who wish to travel to away Second XI fixtures are, meanwhile, advised to contact the host venue or home county in advance as approaches around the country do vary and may be subject to change.
