Welcome to the 2017 cricket season

Posted 9th April 2017

The clocks have gone forward, the sun has come out and the sound of the willow has been heard…it must be time to welcome you to the new cricket season!

During the long winter months, your Committee have been working to prepare for the summer ahead: arranging winter training, repairing outdoor nets and planning for purchases. Your captains have been discussing their strategies with each other, alongside trialling new technology for the cricket availability system.

Your fixtures secretary has arranged the matches, and your entertainments representatives have been pulling together a varied schedule for your enjoyment while raising much needed funds for your club. The opening event is now less than two weeks away!

So, at the risk of some repetition for those who may have received separate notification from the Colts’ Committee, here are a few important notes for your diary:

Friday 21st April 6.30pm – Pre-Season Registration Evening followed by Quiz Night

  • Have you completed your registration form to bring along that evening?
  • Have you notified your captain of your Quiz Team availability?

Friday 28th April to Sunday 30th April – Annual Club Force Weekend

  • Have you advised your captain or a Committee Member which day you will be helping?

Monday 1st May – Deadline for Annual Subscriptions

  • Have you paid your subs as yet? Don’t be late!

Saturday 6th May – Senior League season opens

Sunday 16th July – President’s Day

Monday 17th July to Friday 21st July - Cricket Week

  • Have you booked some days off work?

Friday 15th September – Annual End of Season Dinner

  • Will you win an award this summer?

Further details on the above – plus more - can be found on the Club website.

All that remains therefore is to wish everyone a hot, happy and successful cricketing summer, and we look forward to seeing you on 21st April and over the Club Force weekend.

Best Wishes,

The Old Wilsonians Cricket Club Committee
