The 2020 Romsey season

As has now become traditional, the main question facing the club over the winter was whether there would be a 2020 Romsey season at all. Usually, though, it's Romsey's existence that's the focus, whereas this year it was the season itself that was under threat. The danger, of course, was the unchecked spread of the coronavirus across the planet, and long before our first scheduled fixture (on May 2) the country had been put on lock-down and a simple walk outside was a luxury - the idea of a cricket match seemed like something from an alternate reality. There may yet be some cricket played in the summer of 2020, but for the moment we must content ourselves with old match reports and the knowledge that we're doing our bit by simply staying home.
