We run two sides and our squad philosophy is to ensure participation for all – we have a group with a wide range of cricketing ability and we welcome everyone from experienced players to absolute beginners. Effort, enthusiasm and enjoyment are our key watchwords. We’ll be starting up soon after Easter – fingers crossed we don’t have to endure another chilly early season like 2017! We’re always on the look-out for new recruits and if you’d like to join us please drop either Keith or Steve a line. We’d be happy to arrange a couple of taster sessions to give you a feel for things work at the club, and club kit is available to borrow as required.
This year the two teams will be playing on different days to try to ensure we can make our squad numbers go as far as possible, and give the boys the opportunity to get the maximum amount of cricket under their belts before the school summer holidays bring the season to an end.
Our A team will be playing on Friday evenings in the NEC league – most if not all of our home games will be at the Club on Poplar Road.
The B team will be playing on Sunday mornings in the Mid Surrey League – home games will be in the Merton area, probably at Morden Cricket Club on Lower Morden Lane.
We are entering two knock out cup competitions too.
We will have squad practice on Monday evenings – we are likely to be using the very good facilities at Rutlish School this year. As with last year, we expect to have a level 4 qualified coach on hand to run the sessions.”
