We are an active and friendly club that welcomes players and non-playing members from across a wide area with a strong social side always looking at ways to support and integrate with the local community.
Our Seniors have a full card of Sunday and T20 fixtures and we will be running the annual 6 a side Tournament and Open Day on June 15th. Many thanks to those who organise the Senior sides – never an easy task in this time-competitive world.
The Buckeroos had a wonderful 2018 in winning the NDCA U11 League, and our thanks again to all those, led by Simon Dodd, who helped coach them to their deserved triumph. They will now enter the U13 League as minnows again!
The LBWs played their first competitive matches last season, the highlight being their joint 1st place in the Marnhull Ladies Festival. We are hosting our First Ladies Tournament on May 12th and are very proud to be part of the early development of Ladies cricket in Dorset.
And we also have a Golf Society!
The Fixture Lists are now all updated for the 2019 season.

A quick update on our forthcoming season…
We now have another qualified coach joining us this season. His name is Sean Fitzgerald and he is a bit of a superstar having been Coach of the Year for the South West of England in 2012. Formerly, he was a Dorset Minor Counties Wicket Keeper/Batter and is the last person to have represented Dorset at Senior Level Football and Cricket!
Sean is now a full time cricket coach and amongst other things is the Community Coach with the Dorset Cricket Board for North and West Dorset. We are rather fortunate to have grabbed his services.
As he can only help us on Friday evenings, that decides our weekly training evening. This year’s registration is on Friday 12th April followed by practice evenings every Friday evening 6-7:30. We recognize this may not suit everyone, but given the quality that Sean brings it is the right thing to do and we really hope everyone will manage to accomodate this. If there is anything we can do to help, please do let Simon Dodd know.
Sean and Simon are now working on training plans for all the players. If anyone hasn’t yet replied re being part of the Buckeroos this season, please do so ASAP.
The rearranged date for this season’s Annual Dinner and Awards will be held on Saturday 2nd March in the Buckhorn Weston Village Hall.
Doors will open at 7pm, three course meal provided, tickets are £20 a head. Please speak to Cort to obtain your tickets!
Menu: Starter Pate, Main Course either Spanish Chicken or Lasagne, followed by Cheese and Biscuits
