Wow, what a start to the 2017 season!!
The Saturday boys, in another step up in level, continue to perform with 7 wins from 7 games and sitting pretty with a 25 point lead in the Division 3 Saturday league. The Sunday team with a mixture of youth and old (sorry Sid and JP) and under the debut captaincy of Matt Stevens have surpassed expectations in Division 1 sitting in the top half of the league. Evening league has seen some amazing performances already this year, mainly by Sam Roles who has already broke the clubs batting record twice this year. 154 not out from 57 balls recently bettered with an incredible 200 not out from 65 balls!! Well done Sam an amazing effort.
The first XI are through to the Semi Final of the Evening League cup and are sitting near the top of the league in Div 2 and the Second XI continue to perform under the ever impressive Roger at the helm.
Tommy’s amazing efforts with youth development have started to bear fruit with several youngsters turning out and performing very well in the adult arena. The youngsters at all age groups continue to develop and perform and I look forward to seeing more players trickling through the system in years to come.
The committee members do some amazing work behind the scenes and more work will be done to develop the club further. I would personally like to thank them on the clubs behalf for their effort and time.
If you have ideas or views on how the club can develop then please feel free to speak to myself or the Chairman and you will be heard.
I would like to remind everyone that the clubs Facebook page is there for communication purposes and to show the clubs results, team selection, etc. It is not there as a platform to air personal views or complaints within the club. If you have a grievance then please follow the clubs protocol and discuss the matter with a member of the committee who will deal with the matter in hand. All of the clubs procedures can be found on the clubs website.
With plenty of cricket still to be played in 2017 I hope that all our teams can push on and continue to bring the success that our club had been used to in recent years.
