What a glorious week. We have a four senior fixtures over the weekend with both pitches back in action. The teams are sorted for this weekend but if you are looking for a game next week, contact our Chair of Cricket (Raj Patel) on firstname.lastname@example.org, 07983 452 211 or via the club Facebook page.
A number of you have asked about senior training. We are waiting for new netting which should appear in the next two weeks. In the meantime, we will hold informal net practices at the facilities in Dulwich Park on a Thursday evening from 6.30pm. We’re unable to book these so we are at risk of them being in use by the general public, but hopefully we can get our own nets up and running quickly. Starts tomorrow.
Colts training has started and a new coaching team have been assembled – it’s an impressive line-up led by new Head Coach, Adrian Atherton – more detail to follow in next week’s update.
Finally, a few reminders from last week of upcoming events – hope to see you this evening at the Surrey CCC Roadshow! No need to book a ticket now, just turn up!
