Junior Cricket is fully booked
All age groups in our Junior Cricket Programme are now fully booked and unfortunately we will not be able to take any additional children at this time. We are happy to add children to our waiting list for next year and would also recommend our neighbouring club Avoncroft as an alternative.
Senior Cricket Training
Continues on Thursday evenings from 6pm. We look forward to seeing everyone there as we continue to put more structure around training and ensure each session.
Club 6 a Side Auction
On Sunday 29th May we will be holding an inter club 6 a side competition. Any players who want to be included in the franchise auction please let us know. The auction is planned to take place on either the 15th or 22nd May after cricket.
Ash Newfield starred for the 1st XI last weekend but even his performance was not enough to prevent defeat at Wellington. The all rounder took 4-12 and top scored with 70 in the 30 run loss.
Wellington were bowled out for 195 with Newfield and fellow spinner Malholtra doing most of the damage before the Boars were themselves bowled out for 165. Malholtra (26) also supported Newfield with the bat along with Kervezee (24) and Cordes (19) but the Boars were unable to maintain any momentum due to the lack of partnerships in between.
The 2nd XI secured a comfortable 6 wicket win over Handsworth thanks to an unbeaten 72 by Alistair Hickman.
The bowlers shared the spoils as Handsworth were bowled out for 202 – Ben Johnson by far the most economical with figures of 2/11 from 8 overs.
In reply, Mike Wyres (28) got the home team off to a blistering start before Dwyer (25), Hickman (72) and Matt Russell (26) finished the job off in 36 overs.
On the Hedges ground the 3rds picked of Alveley with a 97 run victory. Richard Barnes top scored with 87 in a rare 3rd XI appearance and was well supported by Barry Hope (19) and Joe Kelly (22) as the home team recorded an under par 228.
Max Smith (4/14) dismissed Rodenhurst, Parkes and Mondie in a quick opening spell to expose the middle order early and regular wickets thereafter meant the visitors were bowled out for just 131.
The Cavaliers recorded a similar result at Alveley. All of the batsmen made starts but it was the middle order partnership between Neale Ingram (53) and Tom Russell (71) that enabled us to score 262. Richard Twigg scored a defiant 61 in reply but lacked support from the rest of the Alveley batters as his team were eventually all out for 139 with Tom Downing picking up 3/35.

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:
The ECB Clubmark and community cricket clubs play a central role in all of these programmes and Clubmark will provide the standards that clubs involved in these programmes will aspire to.
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:
