The club estimates it needs £2,000 for repairs, and has dipped into the JustGiving pool to try to help raise the money.
A brief search of popular crowdfunding website illustrates the scale of the problem facing clubs across the country.
Tap in “cricket” and dozens of pages appear, all with a similar message.
“Keep us operating”. “Worst-case scenario”. “Secure the future”. “Help us pay utility bills”. “Help us recover”. “Help us survive”.
Over the months and years that follow this initial pandemic - and the government’s scientific advice outlines the possibility of further outbreaks in the future - fundraising that would previously have gone into improving facilities will instead achieve basic survival. There is a risk that the grassroots of the sport could fall stagnant.
For those who stick by their clubs, what might recreational cricket look like in 2020?
Well, be prepared for masks underneath helmets, sanitiser at each end of the wicket, hand-washing between overs, no high fives in celebration, no beers at stumps or teas in the pavilion, and certainly no shining the ball with saliva.
“You can imagine a scenario where you can get back to some cricket with players doubling up as umpires rather than people in high-risk age categories,” Farrar adds.
“You can imagine that there being regulations and additional guidance – covering a cricket ball with saliva to get shine will be a thing of the past.
“There are all sorts of things that you could do that could encourage physical distancing, keeping your hands clean during a game, and in the end the nature of cricket being played on a very big pitch with 22 players is probably at the lower end the risk.
“With common sense and some new guidelines, I would love to see some cricket played this summer and I hope to play in some myself for Steeple Aston Cricket Club!
“And it would be great to get junior cricket going again over the summer, six a side, or other modifications but children have missed out so much through the lockdown, it would be great to give them the chance to get back into sport.”
The return of children’s coaching will not be without its own unique challenges. In some briefings, coaches have already been warned that each child would likely need to bring their own ball, any shared bat surfaces would have to be wiped down between use, and face masks would need to be widely used.
As one concerned coach told The Cricketer: “How would you go about convincing kids this was the game for them in these circumstances?”
And the deeper you go, more nagging issues.
Trego is head groundsman at Weston-super-Mare alongside his coaching responsibilities. He points out that any pitch that is played on in the remaining weeks of the season will need to be relaid in the summer, at a cost of roughly £200 per strip.
With pavilion bars closed - most clubs’ primary matchday revenue driver - will games make enough money to justify the expense? And will grounds have been looked after well enough over the preceding months?
“Where I think it will fall down is people not preparing their grounds properly,” says Adam Gardener at Rosedale CC in Hertfordshire.
“A lot of the bigger clubs pay groundsmen good money, and with no money coming in you can’t afford to keep them.”
Even if restrictions are lifted enough for some recreational cricket to be played, and clubs have the finances in place to operate, and players adhere to social distancing rules, there will still be many who cannot take part.
Kev Baker is the vice-captain of the Shropshire Disability Cricket squad, some of whose members may need to remain in isolation in late summer, given how dangerous Covid-19 is to those with underlying medical conditions.
He is concerned not only about the physical impact of this long period of lockdown.
“The mental health aspect is big - this is probably the one release, they can’t play their major sport,” Baker says. “And there’s the uncertainty of when things are going to change. A lot of the guys rely on routine, knowing fixtures are coming up. Those of us who are a bit more in the mainstream are trying to help them along.
“In four weeks time we could be looking to play again, it might be this time next year. We’re making it our business to check on the squad fairly regularly.”
The amateur game remains remarkably resilient through this, its biggest challenge ever. Stoic even.
But the forecast is so gloomy, and the horizon so obscured by the unknown, that right now club cricket’s community spirit - indeed the famous spirit of cricket in general, from superstar internationals to those who coach our kids and mow our outfields - is being tested to breaking point.
