15 Aug 2017 : GXCC: End of season dinner, Saturday September 9th 2017, 7.30 for 8pm.

Fellow cricketers,

Although the holiday season is still in full swing, I fear the nights are gradually drawing in and it won't be long before the season draws to a close. And so it is time to make a note in your diary for the end-of-season dinner. This will be held at the club on Saturday September 9th, 7.30pm for an 8pm start, dress code smart-casual. The cost will be £20 and this provides a two-course dinner, not to mention speeches from our team skippers who will take us through the highlights of the season. And it's possible that we may get some additional entertainment from a traditional source...for more details..come to the dinner!

All members of the club are welcome, senior and juniors, partners and parents. It would be great to have a huge turnout for this season sign-off.

Please email Justine Hampshire (Justinehampshire@btinternet.com) before Weds September 6th if you wish to attend.

Looking forward to seeing you there if not before.

Peter

Peter Westaway, Chairman GXCC

 

 


22 Jul 2017 : GXCC: More outstanding success for our colts' teams
 
Fellow cricketers and supporters,
 
We are approaching the conclusion of the junior cricket season at Gerrards Cross and what a summer it has been!
 
You'll doubtless of already heard of the success for our U15's securing their League and Cup double but there are plenty of other highlights from the junior ranks.

The success story goes well beyond one team. Indeed, I feel slightly guilty not giving each of our successful teams a separate message as the under 15s enjoyed, but I don't want to over-burden your inboxes. So please take five minutes to read this email, it really is an incredible story and a fantastic testament to the efforts of the boys and girls involved, to Nigel Bruce and the coaching team and to Davis Snushall and all the many parents who have taken the time to manage and encourage the teams throughout the season.

So here comes the roll of honour...

The U9 Lions also have double success, clinching the U9 Bucks Blast title against Marlow Town to complete an unbeaten league season to go with their amazing Marlow Big Bash Tournament success at the end of June.The Lions of Gerrards Cross are roaring !

Not to be outdone by the Lions, the U9 Tigers have also been unbeaten and won their league, the U9 Bucks Big Bash. 5 wins from 5 games. What a great bunch of lads we have at this age group.
 
The unbeaten season theme continues with the U12A's. Top of Division 2 South with 7 victories and 1 fixture abandoned, an incredible record.

Also challenging for League title honours are the U11B team currently top of the U11 Division 3 South with 4 victories and just the 1 defeat. This one will go to the wire but a supreme performance from this group of boys.

If it wasn't for Cookham Dean the U11A team would also be unbeaten ! A narrow league defeat against them put paid to their chances of securing the Division One South title and we were unfortunate to draw Cookham once again in the Bucks Cup semi final where our cup run ended at their hands.
 
Although the U10's playing record appears uninspiring at won 2 lost 7, they are perhaps the most improved group of cricketers at any age group. Having not played Club matches in 2016 as Under 9's they have been at somewhat of a disadvantage to other clubs in the very competitive Division 1 South, the top division of three. The improvement has come along in every game resulting in a comprehensive victory against a powerful High Wycombe side in their last match. Reaching the Semi Finals of the Winchmore Hill tournament in early July was further proof that this team are now playing some great cricket.
 
Our U13's have battled away with distinction in the very competitive Division 1 South with 3 victories and 3 defeats and can still finish a creditable 3rd if they beat Chesham in their final League game. Another successful Cup run saw them reach the semi finals.
 
The U13B squad have been rather starved of matches but have a couple more to play in coming week and I wish them every success.
 
The U8's have played their first competitive club match, narrowly losing to Beaconsfield in a fun encounter. Another fixture against the same opponents is taking place on Friday 21st July at Dukes Lane on the main square.
 
Not to be outdone by the boys, our Gerrards Cross Girls are showing great potential. So much so, 6 have been nominated for the Bucks Girls Player Pathway Programme in 2018, the first step towards playing county cricket. Well done indeed to Lily Coomber, Alice Fleming, Alice Godfrey, Poppy Godfrey, Alice Aarons and Lara Daurka.
 
The following boys have also been put forward - Joe Coomber, Calum Dalby, James Hardy, Ollie Scard, Matthew Pannett, William Deslandes, Alexander Stewart, Raghav Batra, Jayden Shah, Horatio Yorke, Saif Khan, Scott Jackson and Dylan McLeisch.
 
Many congratulations also to the following Gerrards Cross Colts who are representing Bucks at their respective age groups this year - Evan Thomas, Thomas Arthey, George Coomber, Aman Shah, Ollie Stalder, Charlie Hewson, Harvey Hewson, Toby Hewson, Jai Daurka, Jacob Seimon, Dominic Ritchie, Max Ritchie, Teddy Fleming, Tarun Eapen, Joel Abbott, James Dalby and Edward Snushall.
 
One notable highlight to report from the county circuit this summer being a stupendous James Dalby ( U15) hat trick against Northamptonshire - top performance James !
 
The following have also all represented their senior schools at 1st XI in 2017 :
 
James Dalby and Zain Khan ( RGS High Wycombe )
Joel Abbott ( Berkhamsted )
Edward Snushall ( Stowe )
 
So overall, I am really thrilled by the performances of our colts teams this summer and some of the outstanding cricket and teamwork that has been on show. Well done to all. The future looks very bright for Gerrards Cross Cricket Club with talent like this coming through the ranks.

Thanks again to everyone involved and hopefully I'll see many of you at the barbecue tonight (Saturday, July 22nd) or at another end-of-season function.

All the best,

Peter

Chairman: Gerrards Cross Cricket Club

03 Jul 2017 : Two More Talented Colts Receive Their GXCC Caps
Two More Talented Colts Receive Their GXCC CapsOn Saturday,1st July, Chairman Peter Westaway was delighted to cap two more talented GXCC Colts, prior to the match against Hayes 3rd XI. 

Dlraj Malhi and Karan Bhurji are both very promising all rounders. This season, they have bowled and batted with maturity. We wish them every success in the future
!

02 Jul 2017 : GXCC: Under 15s going for the double on Monday evening (July 3rd) at Dukes Wood, 6.30pm start.

Fellow cricketers,

In case you hadn't already heard, I wanted to pass on some great news about our under 15s side who have recently won their league, many congratulations to all of the squad. Not only that, but this Monday, July 3rd, they are playing Stony Scorchers in the Bucks Under 15s Cup Final for a chance to carry off the cup and league double.

The game is at 6.30pm on Monday, and after much effort, we have managed to arrange it so the game is played at our home ground at Dukes Wood (so please ignore earlier messages about it being at Farnham Common CC).

If you had time on Monday evening, it would be great if as many people as possible could get down to the ground to provide support to our Under 15 lads.

Thanks and go GX!

Peter Westaway

Chairman: Gerrards Cross Cricket Club

This will give the growing number of girls to keep developing and practising their skills.

11 May 2017 : Another promising Colt receives his club cap
Another promising Colt receives his club cap
Following the capping of Harvey, last weekend club Chairman, Peter Westaway was delighted to cap Jack Day a promising left-arm seam bowler. Jack has trained hard through the winter and now at senior nets, we are sure that his work will pay dividends through this season and many to come. Well done Jack!

01 May 2017 : Harvey Hewson is 'capped' by 3's team skipper Giles Giggins
Harvey Hewson is 'capped' by 3's team skipper Giles Giggins
We were delighted to cap Harvey on Saturday when he played his third senior match against Chesham 2's. Batting at Number 5, the talented under 14-year-old colt made 38 not out. Giles, 3's Captain said, "one of the main reasons for having a 3rd XI, is to introduce our colts to league cricket. In the past four seasons, a dozen colts have played 3's cricket with many moving on to play for the 2's."
 
Well done Harvey!
 
If you or your children would like to play 3's league cricket, are over the age of 12 and of suitable ability, please contact Giles on giles.giggins@gmail.com. We play every Saturday afternoon at our home ground Beaconsfield or away.
