Thanks to everyone who attended. The minutes and the Committee for 2024 all on websites for viewing. Please log in to view either Play or Hits.
Please note the match fees and subscription fee changes for 2024.
Season 2024 & Play Cricket Website
Following on from the fees please can we start encouraging people to start paying their subscriptions for 2024.
And to reiterate again we must ensure everyone is signed up to the Play Cricket Website this year with email address, Date of Birth and Emergency Contact details.
This is a League and an ECB requirement to play on Saturdays!
Thank you to those who already have.
For those who do not know James Drabble has been working hard to get in sponsors to the club. He has set up a SNAP Sponsorship page which details things we can offer, but we are open to other suggestions.
If your company, or friends, might be interested please direct them towards the SNAP page or towards James himself. The more sponsors we can get the easier it is for us to keep our fees low.

And we do have our first sponsor by way of club member Michael Stirrup.
A big thank you to Mike and please do support him if you have any jobs doing…
Get Set Weekend
As per every season we need help setting up the clubhouse at Belfairs ready for the cricket season. We have picked Sunday 14th April this year and we signed up to the ECB’s “Get Set Weekend”.
England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) - The Official Website of the ECB
Would be amazing to have as many people as possible to help assist.
Please contact the Committee to register interest in helping. Will provide more details nearer the time.
Both Junior and Senior nets are continuing. We have had fantastic turns outs for both so far… plenty of time to get in some practise before season starts…
Scoring and Umpiring Courses online
As mentioned at the AGM and to help spread out duties on match days here are the ECB links with online courses to Scoring and ability to search Umpiring courses locally:
