It has been a very good year at the cricket club with only one match being lost to the weather, we continue until the second week in September then we close for the winter!
The Junior teams have played very well this year with the U’13s reaching the County Finals which will see them playing their final match in September, we wish them good luck. As ever our Tuesday evening coaching sessions have been well attended with nearly 70 children registered. We will hold our parents v children’s match on Sunday 6th September, 10am start with a BBQ and Trophy presentation to follow.
Both senior teams are mid league at present with only 2 matches left to play, the second team took a few matches to get used to the new format but have played well and should stay in Division 6 next year. The first team play in Division 3 and are mid table however anyone of 5 teams could currently be relegated so hopefully they will win one of their remaining matches to ensure safety.
The Sunday team have also had a good season, they have played a lot of matches and Dave Eaton the Sunday Captain has played and encouraged the Ul15’s during the games. We hope to see some of the young players in the second team next year.
Summer games evening was another enjoyable night, the competition to win races is great to see and our thanks go to Mike Patching and the team from the Michael Hardinge Trust and of course Noel Keenan for his chirpy encouragement in getting people to compete!
Last Sunday was Presidents day and it was lovely to see so many people at the ground, we started earlier in the day, 12.30 and played a 40 over match, with the Horley XI winning narrowly by 2 wickets.
