What's been happening on the playing front during those winter months?

As you draw back the curtains on these cold, dark, wintery mornings, the 2015 cricket season is probably the furthest thing from your mind.  Not so for 1st XI Captain Andy Roberts and Cricket Chairman Graeme Keenan who have been busy working away behind the scenes setting things up for next season.

Those plans are steadily coming to fruition, and it is with great delight that they can announce two pieces of warming news.  Firstly, despite several overtures from some high profile Premier League clubs, Matty Ingram has committed to play at Old Greasby Road for the 2015 season.  This is great news to be able to secure Matty’s service following his Cheshire debut last season and we look forward to him having a very fruitful season with both bat and ball.  The second announcement is related to our overseas player where we have managed to secure the services of talented Kiwi; Ben Cant.  Ben’s profile lists him as a top order batsmen and medium fast bowler.    He has represented Otago ‘A’ in New Zealand and has strong aspirations to make the grade over there, and has been voted North Otago “Cricketer of the Year” for 3 of the last 4 seasons.  On top of this, Ben has experience of playing in the UK having spent the 2014 season playing for Newcastle Cricket Club in the North East Premier League and is also a qualified coach, so we’ll be looking forward to him passing on some of his skills throughout the club. 

As a club we are always looking for new members. If you know or hear of anybody who is looking to join a cricket club to play cricket at either competitive (league cricket) of friendlies (Sunday's) level then you know what to do? Point them in our direction. They will be more than welcome
