Cricket to resume

2020 season to finally get underway.

 

Following Boris’ announcement yesterday, the ‘green light’ has been given for recreational club cricket to resume on Saturday 11th. July.

The ECB will make a further announcement early next week.

There will be new procedures put in place, which we are now awaiting further details of.

 

However, the Warwickshire County Cricket League have posted some details on their website and are aiming to get some form of competitive cricket underway from Saturday 18th. July. Their article can be found on the below link:

We shall also endeavour to arrange a friendly match at our Warwick Road Ground on Saturday 11th.July.

Playing Members are asked to let the Club know of their potential availability for the 11th. and weekend of 18th./19th. July.

Further information will be posted on here, in due course.

PROSPECTIVE PLAYERS’ NIGHT

Come and join us and the Club!

 

Now that lockdown restrictions have eased a little and more people can meet up and there is an increased possibility that there may be some cricket this season, the Club will be a holding an outdoor net session for prospective members on THURSDAY 25th. JUNE between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. at our Ground for new potential players to come along have a net and also meet a few of the Club’s playing members.

There will be at least one outdoor lane available and possibly a grass strip on the square with a cage (that is to be confirmed) so bring footwear for both types of surfaces and is dependant on numbers.

However, don’t just turn up but please register your interest by emailing the Club beforehand at:

kenilworthcricketclub@outlook.com

as we need to manage the numbers as there are still restrictions in place and also for us  to make sure that there are sufficient Club members available to meet and greet you.

Hoping to hear from prospective players and to become part of the KCC family.

Many thanks.

 

Benches get a coat of varnish

Bench work continues

After many years and so to have a new lease of life, seven of the Memorial Benches around the Ground have been sanded down by Ed Smith and Tom Booker after they had been jet washed down by Andrew Baines. Thanks go to them for that and for their time and commitment.

The second leg of the project is now underway with the benches having their first coats of clear varnish. So far, 5 and a half benches have been varnished with their first coat (……… until the varnish ran out! More is now on order). A second coat will be required, in due course, over the next couple of weeks. The benches in the image still show the fire damage from 14 years ago on their backs. However, the fronts will look much better when the project is finally completed. Promise!

Thanks go to members, Howard Wisdish and Mercer Mottram, for volunteering and helping out with the varnishing. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.

 

 

 

Club View Sunday 17th. May

An unusual cloud formation in the skies

 

The below image was taken very early on Sunday morning (17th. May) by VP, Clive Peacock, on his morning exercise just after dawn. A most unusual cloud formation above the Club.

It is good to know that the Club, your Club, is being used by Members walking around the boundary edges.

Hopefully, you will notice how lovely it is currently looking, except for some cricket taking place.  A lot of dedicated Ground and Surrounds work has been taking place.

Please do come down to the Club to do your “exercise” and send more images!
