Senior Fixtures & Club Calendar Released

Fixtures for our three senior teams are now available.

As in previous seasons, they can be easy added to your own calendar – just follow the instructions here.

You can also see all club fixtures and social events on our NEW online calendar here.

Club Dinner & Awards Night

Thank you to everyone who attended our Annual Dinner & Awards night on Saturday. It was great to see so many familiar faces celebrating what could have been a very different season, should a few results gone our way for all three teams. Regardless of the cricketing outcomes, its fantastic that we can all get together, enjoy each others company as a ‘club’ – John’s four letter word of the night – whilst having plenty of fun. So thank you all for making it a great event!



New Social

Our Social Committee has announced the next club social:

Sat 25 April – a social evening in the clubhouse.

Please bring along as many friends or family as you wish!

A list of all our upcoming socials can be found here.

Social events update

The social calendar for the rest of the summer is taking shape. The main event coming up is the Club Open Day in association with Waitrose. The purpose of the day is to integrate with the local community and attract new members to the clubs – mainly sponsors, but also adult and junior players along with supporters!

We will send out further info but we plan to run along the following lines:

3pm-6pm: Sponsors XI v Local Business XI T20
6pm-7pm: Kids coaching on outfield with some fun games (Hopefully with some input from Andy Flower)
6pm: Some games for adults (coconut shy / longest throw etc)
7pm-8pm: Analysis of days play at Test Match. We hope to get someone to MC this bit and use Flower for Q&A and analysis
8pm: Social

Please block the evening off in your diary and ensure we have good support from within the club. Then we will all have to do our bit to get outside people in and showcase our brilliant club! Anyone willing to help out should contact Ed Cunnynghame or email the club.

Summer Solstice Game

On Tuesday 17th June, the club will be holding a special Summer Solstice Twenty20 game.

With the actual solstice happening the following Saturday and therefore clashing with a league game, we will be holding it a few days early. It will involve one innings at the break of day (5:30am) and the second innings in the evening (6:30pm).

For both players and spectators, there will be breakfast provided in the morning and a barbecue in the evening. We expect that the latter will be more popular! We will also ask for a contribution towards food – probably £5 per meal.

If you are interested in playing, please join the Facebook event here. Tom Grundy is organising the game and can be contacted via the event page. Alternatively, please contact us via the contact page.

Even if you can’t play, there will still be a fantastic game of cricket on view and food too – so please come down to Swans Nest Lane and support the club.

Location: Swans Nest Lane // Date: Tuesday 17th June // First Innings: 5:30am // Second Innings: 6:30pm // Food cost: £5 per meal

Club Night – Fish & Chips

This Friday is our Club Night season opener at Swan’s Nest Lane. The theme is “Chips & Chips”

  • We’ll be providing fish & chips, lovingly prepared by The Kingfisher, undoubtedly the best chippy in town
  • We’ve employed the services of a well known (and loved) professional gambler to run a Blackjack table
  • Prizes given to those who win the most gambling chips on the evening!

The ‘deal’?

  • £10 per head
  • Delicious fish & chip supper
  • Free drink
  • Tokens for the casino

Let’s be honest, what better way to spend a Friday night?!

All welcome!
