The Club has been awarded a grant of £2021 by the Dorset Community Foundation. The money comes from a charity called the Made by Sport Clubs in Crisis Fund, whose focus is on providing help to young people through involvement in sporting activity.
ECB has also awarded us a grant of £1250 under its Inspired to Play programme – £1000 for children and £250 for women’s cricket. These welcome funds will enable us to provide our Youth and Ladies teams with the necessary kit, playing equipment and coaching.
We are grateful to both bodies for supporting us in this way.
The website now has 2021 fixture dates for the Men’s Sunday , Stinger’s evening, LBW and Buckeroo matches.
Our first Sunday match of 2020 began with the presentation by Pam Maynard of a commemorative bell in memory of her husband, Tony Maynard, an enthusiastic umpire and club supporter.
Pam, supported their family, rang the bell to signify the start of the match against Marnhull. Thanks to Rodney Wayman for these memories of the day.
What a strange and difficult period this has been, and will no doubt continue to be so for some time yet.
However, it is wonderful that recreational cricket can resume and we will be trying to pack as much cricket as possible into the remainder of the season. Men’s cricket will resume shortly and pick up on the fixtures that had already been arranged. The ladies should have been playing in their inaugural North Dorset evening league (promoted and organised by BW) but that has fallen to lockdown. Instead they will be arranging friendlies which will be played over the coming weeks. The Buckeroos too have lost their league season but local clubs are already in contact to arrange friendlies for them.
Fixtures will be posted on the website soon and will be added to as the season progresses. There is still uncertainty about – one club has cancelled its remaining games and others may follow, which will lead to odd gaps and late additions/changes. So keep an eye!
It does have to be stressed though that we are absolutely not returning to cricket as normal, for this season at least. The rules for ‘adapted cricket’ have still yet to be published, and social distancing and the need for constant cleaning/sanitisation procedures will have to be in place. But with good humour and common sense we can make it work.
We look forward to seeing you all in the coming weeks, and thank you for your continued support,
