07 May 2014 : Senior Admin help
Dear member
By now you will have received a Fixture Card and letter from our Chairman.
You will see that his last paragraph mentions our "Volunteer Committee"

I'm looking for a "Volunteer" to take over the managing of the Senior Data Base, updating the records on the web and, in conjunction with Sabeeha Mannan (our Colts Administrator) and other Committee Members, organise the TWO mail outs we do every year. One with Fixture Cards and the other with Crosstalk

This is a job I seem to have "acquired" as well as being Treasurer, BUT I now need to devote all my time to the "money side" of the club

If you feel that you can help, please contact me and I will be happy to talk through the role.

29 Jul 2013 : Teenager Sets New 2nd XI Record
Fifteen year old Ben Lane set a new Club 2XI League Record on 20th July.

He smashed an unbeaten 141 against Finchampstead and now holds the record for the highest individual score in a 2nd XI League match. The previous best was 135 set by George Eykyn against Richings Park in 1998.

However, Ben is not the the youngest player to score a 2nd XI league century for the Cross. That record is held by England international Alex Hales who scored 113 against Slough in 2004 aged 15 years 6 months and 28 days. Ben was 15 years 10 months and 5 days when he scored his 141*.

08 Jul 2013 : Sam Westaway Enters the First-Class Record Books
Sam Westaway Enters the First-Class Record Books

Gerrards Cross cricketer Sam Westaway entered the record books last week when he joined an exclusive list of wicket-keepers who have taken ten or more dismissals in a first-class match.

Westaway was playing for Oxford University against Cambridge University in the Varsity match at Fenner’s. He took five catches in each innings to join the likes of Bob Taylor (England), Adam Gilchrist (Australia) and Mahendra Singh Dhoni (India).

In the current season only South African, one-day captain AB De Villiers (with eleven) has taken more dismissals.
