HWCC Weekly Results Round-up

Club Day
A great afternoon was had on Saturday.  There was a good mix of some old, some new and some younger faces.

Two games of 20 overs paired cricket were played and everyone joined in the good spirit of the format. Fancy colours were worn and not one person refused to wear them!

Club Day Hats 2016

Whilst it was a good opportunity to reacquaint with playing buddies, many of us were busy brushing off the cobwebs from the winter rest.  New members to the club joined in exceptionally well and there is a good feel about the club with lots of positive talk of things to come.

A huge thank-you must go out to our hard-working groundsmen over the recent weeks.  To prepare a great wicket in recent climes is hugely appreciated by all.

One last plea from me, is that players respond quickly to emails regarding availability.  This will help with an easier and a more efficient selection process.  A yes or no is required please.  This ultimately saves a phone call from Sam or a captain midweek.

Many thanks,
Tim

Sunday 2nd XI vs Royal Challengers CC, London - 1st XI [Friendly]
Hartley win - Royal Challengers 196-8 off 40 overs.  Hartley 197-5 off 38.3 overs.  Mark Boston 79, Damian Keep 60*.  Dan Bowles 3-20 off 8 overs.

It was a good game between two well-matched teams, and five Hartley batsmen scored at least as many runs as the temperature high (in Celsius) for the day.

Saturday 23rd April is Club Day

On Saturday 23rd April we have our annual Club Day. This is a great occasion for all senior players and up-and-coming colts to join in a friendly pre-season game or two of cricket.

We will look to wear our whites with similar coloured tops to last year.  So if you still have yours from last year please bring it along.  Black/Blue/Orange/Red Slazenger style.  If you can find it then your cost will only be £5 for the afternoon to include your food.

Please respond to Tim (tim_soper@hotmail.com) at your earliest convenience so he can start to draw up teams.  Please inform whether you'd like to play in one or two games.  Game 1 will start at 1.00pm and Game 2 at 4.00pm.

We'll aim to meet at 12pm to set up the ground and possibly warm up with some friendly fielding drills.

This should prove to be a fun afternoon with all abilities mixing and enjoying a beer or two afterwards. If you have a friend keen to join the club then they will be very welcome to come along too.

There will be a St. George's Day celebration BBQ in the evening too, so please do invite partners, friends and family to enjoy the afternoon and evening.

If you have any questions then email Tim, or post on the club Facebook page.

Tea makers for the 2016 season wanted!

Helpers are urgently needed for Cricket Tea Makers again this season; all volunteers gratefully received.

If you are able to make and serve a whole tea that would be fantastic, but just baking a cake or making a loaf of sandwiches would also be great.

The Tea Rota, with a list of dates and games is in the club kitchen, so please add your name.  There is also a quick guide for any new  tea makers in the "How do I...?" section of this website.

If you can help or need some advice, please contact Julie McCluskey on 07710 925 972.
