A quick update from The Park,
After a quite winter it has been all go during the spring months, we have had a Natwest Cricket Force weekend (6th - 7th April), with the majority of players helping out over the weekend to get the clubhouse and ground in a ready state for the 2019 season. Quoting from Mark Jurgens who organised the weekend
Brilliant turn out over the weekend and masses achieved! Special mention to Mike Harrison who ambidextrously painted the home dressing room single-handed, Simon Edwards’ technical ingenuity to repair the cage using only a rope and a large tree stump, Archie Keep for all that soil sifting, Herro for being Herro and Denise who has done a load of mucky jobs for us. But just about everyone has contributed significantly.
So on to the start of the season, as you can see below the wicket is ready and waiting for our first game on the 27th April against Southampton University and Theale and Tilehirst CC on the 28th
Both games start at 1:30 this weekend and everyone is duly invited to come up to the club and see what goes on.
Bring a picnic with the family and make an afternoon of it or just pop up for an hour or so.
Around 4:30 you might even find some tea available.
