Congratulations to David Wilding 3rd October winner in our 49 club.
The winner each week of £20 is the one who holds the bonus ball number drawn in the National Lottery each Saturday.
From 8th October the lottery is increasing the number of balls to 59. From then we will have an additional 10 balls available in our new 59 club. Please contact Phil Oliver if you are interested in this £1 a week investment which will offer an increased weekly prize of £25.
On Saturday 10th October from 9am-4pm we are
re-concreting the net area in order for us to be able to put new
matting in next season. We are fortunate to have a
local tradesman to help us do the work for a competitive price however we would like to offer some labour on
this day. Please contact Ben if you can help in any way.
The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
Cricket clubs can play a key role in the successful delivery of Building Partnerships – cricket's strategic plan for 2006-2009 - by supporting the delivery and implementation of the following programmes:

In addition, it is expected that clubs who achieve the ECB Clubmark will be recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to club cricket in England and Wales.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
County Cricket Development Managers can help clubs through the process of achieving ECB Clubmark Accreditation.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
The four themes are:
