10th April - Update
The new season is nearly upon us!
The club have purchased professional matting for the net area. This should
prove very useful at training sessions from now on.
Please note: No Spikes in the net
Thanks to all those who attended the working parties over the last few weeks
which helped lay the matting. A special thanks also to Ron for all of his hard
work in the close season, without his efforts we would not be in a position to
be ready for matches let alone training.
The committee have taken on board feedback about training last season and
have taken a few actions in order to improve training sessions and focus more on
the development of players. To enable this, training for colts and seniors
will now be on different nights:
- Colts training will remain on Wednesday evenings and will be
co-ordinated by the colts managers, 1st session on Wed 13th April
- Seniors training (including colts wishing to play senior cricket) will
be on Thursday evenings, 1st session on Thu 14th April
Seniors training will now be co-ordinated by club coach Alan Dunning and all
sessions will be structured to help players improve in all elements of the game.
Alan starts his training sessions on the 21st, however we will run an organised
session on the 14th focusing largely on fielding drills but with opportunities
to use the new practice surface for organised batting and bowling spells.
Full fixtures are now available by using the button the left, please contact
the captains by email detailing your availability for the above fixtures.
Look forward to seeing you all at training on Thursday.

Can I also please prompt you to renew your subscriptions for
2011 early, the club has several large expenses that need to be paid at the
start of the year and early payment really helps.
