    The Executive can confirm that the venue had already been closed down and staff were directing patrons off of the property when the incident occurred.

The Management and Membership will not tolerate any antisocial behaviour at the club or in our community. Please be assured that we are assisting the Bermuda Police Service regarding this incident to the fullest of our ability.

    The Executive Management of the St David’s County Cricket Club Inc. will continue to strive for the safety of all patrons that come to our facility; that come to our home. As always, we look forward to welcoming the general public to more positive community-based events at our facility.
