Re: ECF Office Staff on Furlough

I hope the ECF will sort out a meeting on Zoom, or maybe get some of the Members Reps in one of the ECF meeting to maybe emails the members ?

Re: ECF Finance Meeting

The Question I had was that How should the ECF have a meeting online with Zoom or something like that as I think that would be good for the rep and also good to get your points

Re: Will the County Championship go ahead

i hope the County Championship should now be looked at now but the people from SCCU might suggest something, as I always see the NCCU (Lancashire always say that they are the only county that get to the national stages and that is wrong)
