Sunday mornings at Eastwood are exciting with one or two games being played by our youth teams. Watch them enjoying and developing their cricket skills under the guidance and supervision of our coaches and volunteer parent helpers. Watch it all unfold from the balcony.



Players must be registered and this includes paying that season’s subs, to be selected for league games.

Please remember that the club requires subscription fees to cover your insurance and essential equipment for the game.

It is important that players include their details on the website and update their availability as it changes.
This is the information that the captains will use to pick the team. 
With an increasing numbers of teams and lots more players, this becomes increasingly important. If you do not have web access or have limited access please telephone the captains who will update your availability for you.

Please ensure the website has your up to date details and log on. 
To record your availability, please log on to the website by entering your username and password and click on the Availability button in your Profile.
Team selection is made via the website and an email/text is sent to those selected. It is important that you confirm your place in the side ideally via the website or by telephoning the captain, 48 hours prior to the game. If your availability changes following confirmation you must inform the captain as soon as possible so a replacement can be found.
I
f you assign yourself as ‘unavailable’ but then subsequently become available, please advise the captain but don’t assume that there is still a place in the team available.

The club’s definition of registered is:

·         Have paid the subscription fees for the season

·         Have added their details to the website via their profile.

Thank you to those who already have.

Sponsorship
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…

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.

Nets
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…
