16 May 2016 : Sunday Cricket

Dear Members

Gerrard's Cross has had a long history of playing friendly Sunday cricket and we are keen for this to continue. The games are generally all played at home and normally start at 2pm and are of 40 over duration....so not too long a day !

What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon, cricket, tea and a pint to finish the weekend !  It is a great mix of colts who want to start playing against and with adults and older more experienced players. The team is very friendly and the skipper is Kevin Rogers. If you are interested in playing please contact Kevin on 07508 000597 or krogers@aeromobile.net.

Please do think about playing, maybe as a father son combination or on your own......all players most welcome.

Kind regards

Charles

Gerrards Cross Cricket Club May Half-Term Course 2016

Gerrards Cross Cricket Club, in association with SB Coaching, will be running a 3-day coaching course with access to all club facilities over the May Half-Term. The course will be delivered by GXCC 1st XI overseas player, Harry Nichols & ECB qualified cricket coaches from GXCC, and will combine a mixture of drills, nets and games for 3 days of cricket fun!

Time? 9am – 3pm (Please bring packed lunch, plenty of drinks and sun lotion/warm clothes!!)

Who? This course is open to anyone from U7s (Year 2) up to and including the U14 (Year 9) age group. All abilities will be catered for with groups being split depending on age/ability, and boys & girls are both welcome! The numbers will be limited so book quickly to avoid disappointment, as places will be offered on a first come, first served basis.

What? The course will consist of sessions covering batting, fielding and bowling. Each day will have a specific focus on one of the elements of cricket. The bowling machine will also be available for use (weather permitting). In the event of bad weather the course will still run with activities taking place outside when safe and inside the clubhouse if dangerous.

22 Apr 2016 : GXCC Junior Season 2016

Welcome to the 2016 season.

During the winter we have been busy reviewing and planning ready for the forthcoming season, hopefully the weather will be hot and sunny! The fixtures have been completed with home matches taking place at GXCC or Fulmer CC, see website for details.

Firstly; thank you to those parents who have agreed to manage a team this year, we still require coordinators for the following teams - U9 Lions, U9 Tigers, U10B, U11A, U11B, U12B - without them we may be forced to cancel matches. More pressing is the fact that some teams season start next week, your participation is essential, helping with the warm up, ensuring the boys are ready to go out and bat, scoring, umpiring, tidying up after a match, and more importantly supporting the boys & girls while they are playing and enjoying the facilities of the clubhouse. If you can help please do get in touch today - mikelogan@btinternet.com

Another huge thank you to Mike and I am pleased to announce that David Snushall (07500 247704) has kindly offered to step into the role of Junior Co-ordinator for the year, so will be your point of contact for any non-coaching based query (I should be able to help with the coaching). Also welcome to our new Aussie, Harry Nichols, who will be playing for the 1st XI and coaching the juniors, I'm sure you will all become very familiar with him and he is a great lad who is looking forward to the summer ahead as much as the rest of us.

Squad assessments

Over the next couple of weeks the coaching team will be assessing all players and upon completion the 2016 squads will be finalised and circulated.  In the meantime with some matches starting in the next few weeks team selection may be based on 2015 squads. On the advice of the coaching team players may be moved between teams depending on their development.

Team selection for league & cup matches

At U13 & U15 the winners of the Bucks Cup go on to represent the county in the ECB knockout cup. Following the recent success of the U13’s last season, the committee felt it was important to clarify the team selection process for the Cup matches - it has been agreed that the managers of the respective squads will be able to select the strongest side based on availability ie U13’s - will select from U12’s & U13’s, U15’s – will select from U14’s & U15’s. As for league matches selection will be based on availability/achieving the correct balance for that match.

Coaching Times

Sundays

9-10am - Girls, U5/6s, U7s

10.15-11.45am - U8s, U9s, U10s

If you have any friends or family members who would like to come down this Sunday and try out cricket and they are in any of U5/6, and U7 age group, then please do invite them.

Reminder: next Sunday 1st May's session will take place on Monday 2nd May (bank holiday) with exactly the same timings, due to there being a Bucks game that afternoon.

Bucks Cricket Board Regulations

There are a number of ECB & County rules we need to adhere to, one in particular is around players playing between teams, see below. Full details of the rules and regulations can be found on the Bucks Cricket website

 “If Clubs enter more than one team in any age group then no player can play for Team B if he/she has already played for Team A at any stage of the competition in more than 2 matches. It is each Club’s responsibility to ensure that all players are eligible to represent both the Team and the Club”

Any questions, please let me know.

Thanks,

Sam
