At the time of writing this update, the 2020 cricket season is facing as much uncertainty as the rest of the community. The Northamptonshire Cricket League are expecting to receive ‘a binding unilateral decision on all recreational cricket’ from the ECB at any time. As soon as we know more, we will post updates on our website and Facebook. There is a possibility that adult and junior fixtures could be cancelled until midway through the season, or the entire season cancelled. At the moment all of our fundraising events are on hold, but we are hoping to reschedule the Fun Day, Golf Day etc. for later in the year.
We would like to say a huge thank you to Mick George Ltd for their generous donation of £1000 towards our new BOLA bowling machine. Unfortunately, we only managed to use it at one of our indoor net sessions before the sports hall at Quinton School was closed to all external groups, but it is a fantastic bit of kit and will certainly improve practice for junior and adult players when we are finally able to resume!
A full list of Bonus Ball winners can be found on the ‘News’ pages of our website. The January and February 2020 winners were as follows. If you would like to support the Club during what is sure to be a challenging season financially then please get in touch, there are still several balls available. It costs just £1 per week to play and you have a chance to win £25 if your ball is drawn as the bonus ball in the Saturday lottery draw.
