31 Jul 2015 : T20 Regional finals day on Sunday at Ealing CC
Dear GXCC Member

As you will be aware our 1st XI won the HCPL T20 competition last Sunday holding their nerve in a daring bowl off which means they now move into the regional finals. These are being held this Sunday at Ealing Cricket Club and I know the team would value your support. We play Colchester and East Essex CC who won the Essex Premier league T20, if we beat them we play the winners of EalingCC v Sawbridgeworth CC. We are the second game of the day playing at 2pm, the first game starts at 11am.  I have copied some information sent to me by Ealing CC and I hope to see you at what should be a great day out within easy reach !

best wishes

Charles

I'm contacting you from Ealing Cricket club. 


Congratulations on reaching the T20 regional finals. We look forward to hosting you on Sunday. 

For your information we will open our fully stocked bar at 11am. Real ale is available. There will be a BBQ and food available for your supporters during the afternoon. There are no parking restrictions around the ground on Sundays. The nearest tube and train station is Ealing Broadway and we are five minutes walk away from that or North Ealing on the Picadilly Line. 

We don't have many rules except you are not allowed to bring your own drink into the ground and you must wear footwear in the pavilion and some form of top with sleeves. Socks and bare feet are not allowed so please let your players know. 

I look forward to meeting you on Sunday.


Kind regards 

Jason Court
Ealing CC Manager 


26 Jul 2015 : 1st XI Crowned T20 Champions
1st XI Crowned T20 Champions

Gerrards Cross were crowned HCPCL T20 Champions for the first time on Sunday beating Slough and Banbury in bowl-outs.

With rain forecast all day, the chances of playing any kind of match were practically non-existent, so the competition was moved indoors.

Banbury trumped in the first semi-final beating Reading, with skipper Luke Ryan claiming the decisive ‘hit’.

Joe Bracey struck once and AJ Woodland twice as the Cross claimed a 3-2 win over Slough in the second semi-final.

The final, however, was much more tense and was almost too much for the travelling Cross supporters. After each team had bowled their ten deliveries the score was tied at 3-all and the final now entered sudden death.

Both teams hit with their next two deliveries to take the score to 5-all. Banbury’s heads dropped as Lloyd Sabin missed, before Woodland struck to give the Cross a 6-5 win.

The Cross will now play Colchester & East Essex CC in the Area Semi-Finals at Ealing CC on Sunday 2nd August.


09 Jul 2015 : Summer Cricket
Summer Cricket

We will be hosting four Social Cricket sessions on Friday evenings 6-8pm at the club - 17th July, 24th July, 31st July and 7th August. These sessions are open to all ages but we would like parents to be aware that this is not a structured coaching session, more of a chance for the parents and children to get involved and everyone to keep enjoying playing some cricket in a relaxed social environment - the bar will also be open!! Coaches will be there to assist with setting up games and will make sure all kit is put away at 8pm. Please do not bring hard ball kit down as there will be no hard ball cricket on these Fridays.

Finally there are still spaces on the summer camps which start next week and will be running on various days over the next 5 weeks. Please see attached flyer and let me know if you have any questions or would like to book on.

Any other questions please get in touch.

Thanks,

Sam

26 May 2015 : GXCC Patrons Board 2015

I am pleased to be able to invite you to become a "Patron" of Gerrards Cross Cricket Club.  Following the successful launch of our Patrons Board in 2014, we are looking for a few more people/families to support us this year.  We will have the "Patrons" Board (see the attached photo) in the bar area of the clubhouse, a slot can be acquired for a minimum donation of £75 (many kindly donated more last year). As well as having your name on the Board for the 2015 season, the Club will be holding a "Patrons" lunch on a Saturday when there is a 1st XI league match being played at the club - lunch and a half bottle of wine per Patron will be laid on as a thank you for supporting our Club.

 Please let me know if you would like to support our club in this unique way.

Thanks, Bob Bracey

PS Apologies if you are receiving this email and have already committed to being a Patron for this season - it was easier for me to send an group email to all on the GXCC mailing list.


24 May 2015 : Senior Membership Subs
Would all senior members please make sure that they have completed their membership forms, and perhaps more importantly for a small club like ours where cash flow is crucial....send us their Subs ! So far we are well down on senior membership fees, which doesn't seem to correlate with the numbers playing. If you would like to spread the cost of your fees over a couple of payments we are happy to do so, please speak with Jessie to arrange this.

Kind regards

Charles
