Cricket Club News Update May 2013

New Season

Wymeswold CC’s new season gets underway on Saturday 27th April with the 1st XI competing in Division F of the South Notts Cricket League under the captaincy of Rob Pitman.

Meanwhile the 2nd XI will be competing in Division M again and skipper Phil Parkes will be hoping that the side, with a mixture of youth and experience, will continue to make progress this season.

The club has also entered a side into the Loughborough Cricket Association’s Thursday Evening League, where Jason Whowell will skipper a team mostly comprising the club’s youngsters, but with a few old faces too.

The Under-13 team commences its league fixtures on Sunday 26th May at Egerton Park and we are on the look-out for any youngsters aged 13 or under who may be interested in joining in to play these short Sunday morning games.

Opportunities to get involved

Newcomers to the village or area are very welcome to get involved with the club. Even if you don’t consider yourself to be a cricketer, we would welcome help in other areas off the field:

  • Our Sunday junior sessions are reliant on adult help and any offers would be appreciated. For the younger children the accent is on ball games, throwing, catching and hand/eye coordination so if you feel you could help then please get in touch.
  • The Cricket Club also mows and maintains the whole of the Playing Field on behalf of the Parish Council, so apart from the pitch itself the club also mows the banks and areas around the pavilion. Any help with mowing or strimming these areas would be appreciated.

Should you be interested in playing or helping the club in any way please contact Nick Shaw, WCC Secretary, on 01509 880543 or e-mail
