Following the announcement from the government we fully anticipate we will be getting a full cricket season in, which is absolutely fantastic news. We are awaiting formal confirmation from the ECB and our local cricket board. Training provisionally to start on Tuesday 6th April.
We intend to hold Zoom calls before the start of the season to talk through your age groups individually. Information about these will be sent out in due course.
We would like to encourage you to bring any potential new members to this first session. The subscription for this year will be £70 for the season and will include any match fees.

We ask that children come dressed appropriately for sporting activity in cricket whites or a tracksuit. Those in groups playing with a hard ball must have their own box (and suitable underpants not boxers) and we strongly recommend they have their own helmet and bat, although we have some club ones that can be borrowed they may not be the correct size. We also have some pads that can be borrowed. Those playing in the mini section with a softer ball do not need to bring specialist equipment. The outdoor nets will be available to book outside of training nights by members only – please note it is not permitted to use cricket spikes in the nets.
The coaching sessions are weather dependent and if it is raining they will be automatically cancelled – if you are unsure notification will be sent on the appropriate whats app groups.
Club kit, both training and match day whites can be brought through our club shop hosted by Sporting Billy.
Although club kit is not compulsory, we would expect players taking part in matches to wear cricket whites (except U9)
As members of the club, you do receive a 10% discount on in store purchases (excluding club kit).
We are looking at some sort of second-hand kit sale but we have not worked the details out (if there are any volunteers to take this on that would be amazing)
As per the seniors, all teams will be competing in the Wiltshire leagues this season. The teams will be selected and posted on the What’s app groups setup by the team managers, it is important that members of the squad know their availability for any upcoming games at coaching each week.
The fixtures and results for the teams at the club can be found here
