We are now very much turning our thoughts towards the 2018 season. Last summer was a rather disappointing one for us on the pitch and we are keenly looking to strengthen our young and up-coming squad in order to make a really determined push for promotion next summer. The facilities for cricket at the rec. are now the best they’ve ever been with a superb pavilion, an enlarged ‘square’ – recently doubled in size (thanks to the Parish Council for helping us to replace our now defunct old square) - which played excellently last season, mobile covers (thanks to an ECB grant and the generosity of Mr Miah at the Curry Palace) and, for next year, renovated sight screens (thanks to FECA for their financial support with these). Next season, we will be running our usual two adult sides in the CCA Leagues as well as junior teams, for which both boys and girls can play, at u11s, u12s and u14s levels. We are also planning to continue the new ECB All Stars cricket programme for 5-8 year olds which we ran so successfully for the first time last summer.
