Happy 2012 from Long Ditton Cricket Club. We can’t wait for the 2012 season to start and are gearing up by getting all the fixtures into place and all the other bits and pieces which need to be done before a ball can even be bowled. At the end of last year, the Club Secretary received a letter from Surrey Cricket, with a brief review of the 2011 season. Every year, Long Ditton has to submit quite a detailed report, to the Surrey Cricket Board, along with various other clubs in the county. Figures taken from 73 clubs from 2010 and comparing them to 2011 figures show:
Participation numbers have increased 10.8% on 2010, coaching roles have increased 8.5% and volunteering roles increased 4.68%.
Long Ditton’s own numbers increased during 2011 and we even made a profit, which will go back into the club. We’ve been re-accredited as a Clubmark club for another 3 years and will again be working with Surrey Cricket to develop the club. Many thanks to everyone who contributed to the club in 2011 and helped the club have such a superb season. Roll on the 2o12 season.
