Captain’s pre season update
For anyone who may not be aware, the indoor cricket season has been a great success for the club. We put out two teams every Sunday evening since late September until March. The first team have been very competitive and were pushing to finish top of the league. There was consistently excellent batting, bowling and fielding performances from the whole team, making us a hard team to beat.
The second team has been great for giving some match practice to some of our promising younger players. John Cranch did a fantastic job as second team skipper and has been very committed to developing our young players.
Unfortunately, to date, two of our pre season games had to be called off as groundsmen around the county have been struggling to roll and cut the pitches. We are no exception to this, so if you can spare any time to help get the ground ready then please get in touch with any time you can offer. Hopefully work will be starting this week.
I would like to see more people coming along to practices, if there’s anything different you would like to see then please get in touch or let me know. I would also like players to get in touch with the captains and let us know your availability. We have WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, club email, mobiles and playcricket website, all of which you can use to let us know what games you can or can’t play.
I am very optimistic about this season, we had some very good results last year with lots of people contributing. There was lots of individual successes and lots of fantastic team performances.
Our committee has been working hard over the winter to help start an U10 side. There will be 8 games this season and I am looking forward to see how they get on. Much credit should go to Adam Cook and John Cranch, who have been doing a great deal of work towards this.
Club gear is now available through the link on this website. SBCC training gear and caps are now available. There are some club shirts still available to buy as well.
Finally I hope to see you all very soon as we will be hopefully starting outdoor practice on Tuesday the 1st May from 6pm. As always new and existing members will be welcome.
