Welcome to the 2022 season and, hopefully, the first full and regular season since 2019. Let’s all embrace it and enjoy it!
It is a tribute to the enthusiasm and loyalty within the club that we are in a great place to have a wonderful year. The Men’s side have a full card of regular and new Sunday and mid-week fixtures, and will be officially led by Charlie Payne, having admirably taken the role for much of last season. The Ladies (LBWs) continue to go from strength-to-strength and will be putting out both hard and soft ball sides, led by Nicky Talbot, Roz Hartley, Amanda Horne, Amy Shankshaft and Katie Switz. The Junior section, the Buckeroos, is now very ably run by Will Tremlett. And our second season of All Stars and Dynamos will no doubt build on the brilliant start last year, led by Katie Ridewood.
As we are getting excited by the season ahead, we must also recognise a “changing of the guard” – after more years than I’m sure he cares to remember, Robin has decided to step down from his role of Chairman. It is an understatement to say that Robin has been instrumental in just about every aspect of the club. I know everyone in the club offers a huge “thank you” to Robin for all he has done, as well as his continued work on the ground.
Thank you to the previous committee and continuing VPs, as well as our sponsors. Nick Maynard who has decided to call time on being our scorer – thank you for all that pen work Nick! And, not forgetting, all the playing members who go out there and represent the club.
Finally, I’d like to welcome our new committee. It deliberately represents the increasing width of the club, but as ever, is focused on growing our club, whilst keeping it fun and inclusive for all.
Some words later…
Thanks to Rodney for these memorable photos.

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.
