Club Re-enters Midweek League

At the AGM it was decided to re-enter the Adams Harrison Midweek League.  It is important to have a pathway for players to progress in the game and to ensure our juniors progress to adult cricket it was felt that the 20 over midweek league was a good stepping stone to the 40 over weekend matches.  The club had withdrawn from the league a few seasons ago mainly because finding someone to organise and captain the team has proved difficult.  Hopefully now the availability and commitment will be there to ensure we keep our place in the league.  Reference to our return was made in the local press (click the link below for the article).

 

Cricket Laws Updated

A new Code of the Laws of Cricket has been issued by the MCC Committee.  It came into force on October 1st 2017 and is the first update since 2000. The ECB have written a summary document showing which laws have been changed.  One point of interest (quiz compilers please note) is that there are now only 9 ways to be dismissed.  This is because Handled the Ball is now merged into Obstructing the Field.

Living Sport Awards 2017

Living Sport is a local charity dedicated to improving the health and well being of the people of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough through participation in sport and physical activity.  It is part of the County Sports Partnerships Network, one of 44 County Sports Partnerships (CSP’s) across England, formed in 2006 to raise the profile, and engagement, of sport with local strategic partnerships, and to increase community participation in sport. County Sports Partnerships are supported by Sport England with substantial funds from the Sport Lottery.

The annual Living Sport Awards recognise sporting performance in a number of categories with nominations received from the local community.

This year Weston Colville CC have nominated Tom Westley for the Sports Performer of the Year award in recognition of his selection for England at Test level.  We are delighted to report that he has made the shortlist of three for this award and we hope that he will be selected as the winner at the awards ceremony on November 23rd at the Burgess Hall in St.Ives.

 

Clubmark Reaccreditation

We are pleased to report that the club has completed the necessary paperwork and has been reaccredited to Clubmark for the next  three years.  The process starts with a visit from Cambridgeshire Cricket to a training session where the procedures for safety and welfare are reviewed.  Forms are then completed on-line to confirm the policies that have been adopted and the way the club communicates with members.  All of this is designed to create an environment where the club demonstrates its duty of care to young players.

Copies of the policies can be found in the pavilion and also on the website on the Adopted Polices page.

Thanks to Richard Golding and Steve Potter for their efforts to secure reaccreditation.

Coach Awards

As well as being coach, welfare officer and committee member for our club Richard Golding is also heavily involved in the Cambridgeshire branch of the ECB Coaches Association.  His current roles are Secretary and Welfare Officer. In the past he organised the ‘Coach in the Community’ programme that saw ex professional cricketers including Derek Randall and Ian Pont deliver coaching sessions for coaches.  These sessions provide valuable information for coaches to take away and use at their clubs. To recognise Richard’s contribution to Cambridgeshire coaches, the county nominated him for the ‘Outstanding Contribution’ category in this years Coach Awards.  We are pleased to report that he won and was treated to a day out at the Oval when England played South Africa.  Winners were presented with their awards on the Oval pitch by England bowling coach Ottis Gibson (who has now left the post to coach South Africa).
