EXTRAORDINARY GENERAL MEETING

A meeting has been called for MONDAY SEPTEMBER 10th at 7:30pm in the Reading Room to discuss the future of the club.  It is essential anyone interested in the club (whether they be current, past or potential members) attends this meeting.

With a number of players already indicating that they will not be available for the 2019 season (for various reasons) the club has to evaluate the options for the future in terms of adult (weekend) teams.  The 2nd XI was withdrawn after one game this year after a poor response to availability and that issue has now crept into the 1st XI with two league matches conceded.  The deadline for entries for 2019 is the end of September so time is of the essence.

Clearly the decisions made regarding the senior team will have an effect on the juniors.  At this stage the club plans to continue with the junior section but the motivation to do so is based on producing cricketers that go on and play for our club.

The situation the club faces right now is the most serious in its 100+ year history so the attendance and outcome of this meeting will determine the future of the club.

Please come along – YOUR CLUB NEEDS YOU !

2nd XI withdrawn from league

It is with regret that we have to announce that the 2nd XI have been withdrawn from the league.  Despite efforts to  get enough players it soon became clear that the club could not raise two teams every weekend.   This further illustrates the general situation within village cricket as players lean towards the T20 format in preference to the longer form of the game.  We hope that in the future the interest returns and the possibility of a 2nd XI can again be considered – but for now that option is some seasons away.

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  The club had withdrawn from the league a few seasons ago mainly because finding someone to organise and captain the team has proved difficult.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.
