5 members of the Winchester Midweek Cricket League were delighted when Finch Group successfully arranged Public Liability cover at a level of premium which enabled them to continue playing.
Martin Peters, organiser of the The Serious Cricket/WDCCA Midweek Cricket League said;
‘As the League Organiser I would say that without the input of the Finch Group the leagues very existence was under threat! Without the policy being set up there was a real potential of 5 clubs (27% of teams entered) withdrawing from the league completely. We have 18 teams entered for the 2019 season across 3 leagues & 2 cup competitions with fixtures running from May to July. With a national decline in the playing numbers generally in cricket it would have been a real shame if a recreational league was affected by an insurance issue out of the clubs control’
