CRICKET FOOTBALL League Two Local News Sports News

What have Gloucestershire’s sports teams been up to in self-isolation?

The coronavirus pandemic may have left a fairly sizeable hole in the sporting calendar.

Gloucester Rugby had their most recent match against Worcester Warriors postponed and their upcoming home match against Bristol Bears has also been struck by the virus.

Gloucestershire were set to return to the top division of county cricket for the first time since 2005 but the County Championship season has been delayed until at least May 28th.

On the football front, all professional activity is on hold until the end of April at the earliest, meaning there is no action for Gloucestershire’s two League Two sides.

With no sport to look forward to, the players have had to keep themselves busy, so what have the players and the clubs themselves been up to in isolation?

Who is Gloucestershire’s greatest ever over-seas star?

Gloucestershire have had some great over-seas players represent them at the Brightside Ground. Michael Klinger, Kane Williamson, and Muttiah Muralitharan all come to mind. The Bristol-based club have been giving the fans a say as they look to pass the time.

Gloucester Rugby rewind

We won’t be seeing much action at Kingsholm any time soon but the press officer at Gloucester still has plenty of followers to please. The Premiership side have been taking a trip down memory lane, looking back at their dramatic 16-16 draw with Worcester Warriors. The fixture in September 2012 saw Freddie Burns’ last-minute penalty, deny Worcester their first win of the 2012/13 season.

Gloucester City’s challenge to the fans

Gloucester City are currently in the process of building their new ground so the coronavirus outbreak couldn’t have come at a worse time. However, they are trying to see the bright side of it and have issued a calling to any artists in their fan base. They’ve challenged fans to redesign the seating pattern for their new stadium, what colours would you go for?
