It is our Junior Presentation next Sunday 27th September starting at 2 pm.
Please be there so we can bring the 2015 to a memorable close. Bring your kit as, if the weather is fine, we may be able to have a final knock about!
Nobody yet knows who has won an award......it could be you! If it is and you are not there to receive it, it will be disappointing all round.
Hopefully we will fire up the BBQ but in any case there will be some refreshments available.
Put rugby, football and hockey aside for just a couple of hours and help the Club celebrate the 2015 season.
The County are running an umpiring course in the New Year.It will take place at Penn and Tylers Green C.C. starting Thursday 14th January for 11 weeks. The two hour sessions start at 7.30 pm. The cost is £60 although U18s just pay £45. If you are interested in attending please contact Alan English email@example.com
This is a very worthwhile activity as it not only teaches you the complete Laws of Cricket but also gives you a qualification which will definitely enhance your CV.
Although the cricket season is not yet over coaching sessions at Winchmore Hill have now stopped. We had a very pleasant last session with some keen cricketers and, I am pleased to say, the net now has new matting. This was used for the first time by a group of U12s and it certainly is an improvement on our previous surface. The bounce is not as high and seems truer to that of a turf wicket. The surrounds of the net have to be tidied but I think this will be a job for next Spring. It is just a pity that it was refurbished too late to be of much benefit this season. The net may be used by supervised members whilst the weather is still fairly warm. Please bear in mind if you do come up to the Club to use the net you may have to park outside the gate. The Club has had to fit a padlock on our entrance gate due to the worry of intruders.
We have decided to have our PRESENTATION this year on the afternoon of Sunday 27th September from 3 pm. This will allow children who are rugby,football, hockey training in the morning time to get to the Club. We will be hopefully having a BBQ so those who need food will be satisfied.
As usual there will be lot of trophies and awards to present so make sure you are there as one of the winners could be you!
If the weather is fine we can get the bats and balls out and have a knock about so wear suitable clothing.
HOPE TO SEE EVERYONE ON SUNDAY 27th SEPTEMBER AT 3pm
It is hard to predict whether it will be dry enough for cricket this morning. It is drizzling now and it looks like there is more rain on the way. However, should it remain dry, players can come up and use the new net. It's up to you!
This Sunday will be our last coaching session of the season. Last week we had a great 'all age' match which was thoroughly enjoyed by all who came. We may be able to do this again dependent on the numbers and.....the weather! Sadly there is rain expected more or less all day but we shall have have to hope, if the rain abates it will be between 10.30 and 12!
We are intending to have a Junior Presentation to bring the season to a close. We have pencilled in the afternoon of Sunday 27th September when, if the weather is kind, we can have a last hurrah with the bat and ball!
At last our new net surface is in place. Sadly it is not quite finished so cannot be used for the moment. So please do not go on the area till we give you the go ahead.
There will be cricket tomorrow morning, weather permitting. Hopefully the rain will stay away till the afternoon.
There will be no Kwik Cricket on Sunday morning 16th August due to a Senior Game. The final two sessions will be on 23rd and 30th August.
Friday evening coaching finishes this week but Sunday morning coaching continues till the end of August.
Don't forget.....you may use the net at any time as long as you are supervised by an adult.
The U12s finished their league season in style with a 7 wicket win over Chalfont St Giles at Penn House Park.
Chalfont St Giles batted first and accumulated 115 runs in their 20 overs. The Winchmore Hill bowling was not at its best. 23 wides were bowled and with 5 no balls as well we gifted the opposition 28 runs. This is something we must address. Sam Richmond provided the one highlight with a super catch at backward point.
Fortunately our batting was secure and we reached our 116 target with two and a half overs to spare. Brandon and Chris set the innings on its way, batting sensibly, before Brandon skied a catch. Chris went on to score a well compiled 30 and Olly matched this with some strong hitting. Lewin and Seb finished the job off with Lewin cracking three 4s in a row to give the team a deserved win..
This win puts Winchmore Hill into second place in the league but this maychange if the remaining league matches are played.
Well done U12s,a good evening's work!
