Cricket to return

Following a meeting last night it was decided that under the new ECB guidelines for the return to cricket that we are in a position for senior cricket to resume. At this time we feel are unable to safely restart junior cricket within the current guidelines but this may change as and when Covid restrictions are lifted.

To enable cricket to resume there are a number of jobs that need to be done over the next two weekends. Could all members make every effort to spare an hour or 2 over the next 2 weekends. Meeting at the club at 10:00 am. If you have a strimmer or hedge trimmer then please bring it along. The more we have the quicker we can get these jobs done. Any help with strimming or hedge cutting doesn’t have to be at the weekend you are more than welcome to call over whenever you have time and do your bit.

Members are also reminded that subs are due and need paying ASAP. Seniors £35 and U15’s £20

Thanks and hope to see you all over the next week or so

bonus-ball-may-2020

After Saturdays draw Ball 12 was the bonus ball and quite a popular number it was too, especially with the leaders, as 7 of the leading 9 players all had it along with 5 other players who marked off their first number tonight with 12.

Big Dai is leading the way needing just 2 more numbers to claim the jackpot, but as we all know the last 2 numbers are always the hardest to get. Unless your our resident quiz master Jon Willington, then its usually the first one he struggles with, although he was off the mark early (for him) in this game.

The Jackpot currently stands at £150. Good luck all and thanks for your continued support

2020 league season officially cancelled

We have received confirmation this afternoon that the 2020 Pembrokeshire Cricket leagues have been cancelled at both senior and junior levels.

It is hoped that cup fixtures may still be rearranged to be played in August and maybe September but this has still to be confirmed. It is also hoped that some junior cricket may also take place later in the year in some format but again this has to be confirmed once plans have been made.

Further updates as soon as we are told

We have a lockdown winner

Looking better

Having had confirmation from ECB that we are ok to carry out work on our wicket. A full risk assessment was carried out and social distancing measures were strictly kept to. In fact like any other time work gets done on the square there wasn’t a player to be seen for miles ?. I know there were more jobs that I should have done before I left because David Petrie didn’t turn up and as we all know he always turns up when we have just finished everything ??

Getting there slowly

Thanks to Andrew Thomas for cutting the outfield at the weekend and now the square is also looking a lot more like a cricket square after being mowed and brushed, mind having said that I wouldn’t fancy facing the new slimline Brennan Martin steaming down the hill until there have been a good few hours of rolling yet. After all the rain we’ve had since October it’s just typical that we have now gone to the other extreme where I have had to water the square today which will hopefully soften it up enough for me to roll it tomorrow.

Hopefully take not all in vain and we will get to see some cricket played later on this summer.

Hopefully catch you all soon. Stay safe ??
