After a Norfolk Cricket Board meeting last Tuesday, directors agreed that NCB would make it MANDATORY, and with immediate effect, for all County Age Group players to wear a helmet that meets the new ECB safety standards.

The NCB Directors felt that safety and consistency were of paramount importance and hope that parents will agree on this matter, ensuring that their child is protected as best as possible. This also ensures that NCB discharges its duty of care and maintains valid insurance cover for all activities, both as an organisation and for its staff.
