Calling all cricketers (or anyone who has picked up a bat or ball in the past)

With the fantastic new pavilion built, we are obviously keen to ensure we do it justice with a full complement of cricket matches over the coming season. 

The first, inaugural game will be against Ham on 29th April, graced by the presence of Mike Gatting (ex-England Captain and MCC Committee Member) to formally open the pavilion – and indeed, by the time you read this, this game may have already been played and the pavilion may already be fully open for use.

 Past experience suggests that we have more than enough players lining up for the Ham game, but, as the season progresses, with holidays etc, is often more of a struggle to find 11 players for many Sundays – so if you have any interest in either playing regularly, turning out for the odd game, just giving it ago or know someone else who might, please do get in touch with Chris Daking ( The one thing that I would add is that some people are put off by not having played for ‘years’ – and if that is the case, I would encourage you to come down a watch a game and you may be pleasantly surprised!  And last but by no means least, there are always a couple of drinks (and fines) after the game – which is a key part of the overall club experience!

 Hope to see you over the summer.

 Pete Reid (Captain) & Chris Daking (Secretary)
