Secretary’s Report for Season 2017 

Our Club in the main had a very successful 2017 season. We welcomed several new players to the club at the start of the season all of whom performed and fitted into all the teams very well. There were league titles won, junior cups, and a 6 a side competition win, but the highlight of them all was the First XIs promotion and immediate return to the Premier League after last seasons relegation. 

The first team led by Club Captain Alastair Markham impressively topped the table all season and finished 66 points clear of second placed Folkton and Flixton. There were some close exciting finishes during the season and some excellent individual performances from the players. The season was a real squad effort as everyone contributed in games at vital times during the season.

Worthy of special mention was Jack Storey’s statistics. Jack made over 1100 runs which included 3 centuries a 97 and 85, he was also our leading wicket taker with 44 wickets. Other outstanding century makers were Guy Martinson 117no and Matthew Bunn 115no.

The seasons last home match was fittingly celebrated at the club when everyone enjoyed an excellent Hog Roast evening hosted by our President Rodger Booth.  

Our 2nd  XI were unfortunately relegated from Division 2. Simon Powdrill had to resign the captaincy mid-season, and we were very lucky and indebted to Thomas Elstone who on his summer break agreed to captain for the remainder of the season. Tom had a rough baptism due to weak availability and his 2 opening bowlers playing the majority of games in the First XI. However to everyone’s credit we fulfilled all the fixtures and we hope for better results in 2018.

The 3rd XI under Captain Jason Kemp had an excellent season and won their league. They headed the table all season and clinched the title in the final match of the season. All the games in this league are played on a Sunday and this greatly helps our availability, the team has a good balance of seniors and juniors, games are played in a good spirit and seems to be enjoyed by everyone.

We had some social games at the club, we celebrated our past friends and colleagues with our Annual Memorial game in memory of John Mowbray, Alan Obridge and John Batty. Past players brought their gear out of mothballs and the day was  enjoyed by everyone who attended. We also had a Junior Festival Sunday with an U9 Competition in the morning followed with a Dad’s v Lads game in the afternoon. 

Our Junior Section continues to thrive and be successful and we have some exciting, promising and very enthusiastic young cricketers in all the teams.

Our U13s won a junior cup and also the Indoor Junior League, other age groups did well and were competive in their respective competitions.

Many thanks for another junior initiative The Junior All Stars. There were regularly up to 20 U9’s all excellently being coached by Roger Wilson, Simon Powdrill and Mike Ulyatt on Sunday mornings at the club. 

A number of our older juniors have regularly appeared in our senior teams on a Saturday which bodes well for the future.     

Once again we extend our sincere thanks to Steve Bunn for his massive work in organising  the 3rd XI and junior teams, it is greatly appreciated by all at the club and all the parents.

The Cricket Committee would also like to thank our captains, players and members for their help and support. Our sincere thanks also to our sponsors and our President Rodger Booth and his Vice President contacts. These generous donations enable us to continue as a successful cricket club. 

I could not end this report without paying personel tribute to all of the people who do the work behind the scenes. I cannot do a complete list, so if your name is not here you are still highly regarded. My thanks to :- Our President/Treasurer, Chairman, and Committee members. The team captains, managers, coaches. Our groundstaff. To parents, carers grandparents and team members who unselfishly give lifts. Match ball sponsors, Mike Ulyatt for our media coverage and fundraising and Matt Bramall for our excellent website. Last but not least our scorers and umpires

Many thanks to you all

Ron Biggs  Hon Secretary
