Outdoor nets, ground and Open Day

March 29, 2011 by  
Filed under News updates

The indoor seniors’ nets have now ended, but the new netting for our outdoor nets has arrived and we will be putting it up on Saturday from 10am. If you are able to come down, any help would be much appreciated. A huge thank you to everyone who came down last Saturday, to do all the usual jobs. Part of the ditch was cleared and the ditch was almost empty of water, which was good. This time last year there were puddles on the outfield by the club house, so it looks like things are quite a bit drier. Mark and Dave went down on Sunday as well and the ground was looking glorious in the sunshine. The area between the club house and the nets has been cleared and mowed and now looks much smarter.

As you may know, we’re having an Open Day on April, 9th April from 10am, to welcome new and old members for the 2011 season. If you can help in any way, please let Mark know, or just feel free to come down the ground and support the club.

LDCC – Colts Under 11 and 12’s

Dear All

Welcome back to all from last year, and welcome to new parents and colts that have entered this age band. We hope you have all wintered well and now for the long and hot summer (hopefully). The winter nets have seen some great cricket from the boys who have attended which bodes well for when the rest of the squad start training next month. The winter nets run until the first Monday in April so if you wish to attend so come down. (6pm – 7pm)

Training

Training for Under 11’s and U12’s will be held jointly on Monday evenings between 6pm and  8pm. However these times are subject to change and the first couple of weeks training will start at 6pm. In the event of any changes or cancellations you will be notified by email so please check your email on a regular basis especially if there is bad weather.

First training session 6pm-8pm Monday 11th April.

Please bear with us in relations to the times because all the coaches are volunteers and have both busy work and family commitments. That being said most weeks there will be at least two coaches available  so it is unlikely that any sessions will be cancelled.

Equipment

The only essential piece equipment that the colt’s need is abdominal guard (box) otherwise they will not be able to bat. PLEASE BRING THIS TO TRAINING SESSIONS AS WELL AS MATCH DAYS. All other kit will be provided if needed. If possible I do recommend that all players purchase a helmet and pads and get used to wearing them. There is nothing worse than wearing ill-fitting equipment.

Matches

Please see attached list for games throughout the season, which could be subject to change. At present the are entered into the Mid Surrey League, Surrey Cup and National Cup and games are mainly on Thursday evenings (U12’s) and Friday evenings for U11’s or Bank Holiday Monday mornings. Games usually start at 5.30 or 6pm

 

All players selected will be notified by email by the Manager, (tbc). Please respond as quickly as possible. Unlike other clubs, players at LDCC players are not expected to pay a match fee. The only fee you pay is the subscription, which covers all the training sessions, and practice matches which makes for exceptional value for money.

Selection for the league and cup matches will be based on firstly ability with commitment and attendance at practice sessions taken into account. We are in the 2nd division of the best and strongest league in Surrey and will be playing some good teams. Last year the U11’s proved to be competitive winning a number of games but with a potentially stronger squad this year we are aiming for an even more successful year.

More information on League and cup can be found at Mid Surrey website which is: www.midsurreycl.play.cricket.com

 

Ontact details for the coaches will be confirmed shortly.

 

It would be great if  parents, guardian’s family and friends etc could help out on match day. Much help is required with the umpiring, scoring, drinks and setting up of the ground. Any help would be greatly appreciated and allow Phil and Steve to concentrate on the coaching.
