The new flag is flying so dust off your sun hats and come on down.
The groundsman is manicuring the pitches and matches begin this Saturday. Team captains this year are as follows: we’re delighted to welcome back from South Africa our old friend Matthew Kleinveldt as first team captain and Andy Bowyer will once again lead our 2nd X1.
Tariq Ali is 3rd X1 captain, with Ali Murtza leading the 4th X1 and Andy Gough captaining the 5t...
Over the winter months we have acquired a new sound system, funded by an ECB grant and a generous donation from one of our members, Philip Court.
We now have good sound in all our rooms so it’s goodbye to the snap, crackle and pop we’ve been getting from our microphones on presentation evenings. Inside the pavilion some useful projects have been undertaken.
Again with the help of grant funding, we had a new changing room for our...
After the sad loss of David Barnes last year, it is good to see him remembered at WCC in a special way. The Barnes Family have donated a roller in his memory so when you see our groundsman using it, spare a thought for a very special and much missed member of WCC. Thanks to Richard and James Barnes for this donation in memory of their father.

No, it’s not camping out in tents, as some of you thought! It is a coaching and activities course for children during the Easter holidays. Thanks to Simon Lycett and Oliver Margetts for organising this course. It’s hard work but the children love it and the club benefits from it. If you know any children who might like to attend, please contact Simon on 07875 588350. Coming soon in July: Summer Camp.
The NatWest Cricket Force initiative on the 5th and 6th April enabled us to spruce up our surroundings and we are most grateful to the band of helpers from all sections of the club who turned out to help us when the weather was rather cold. Fortified by samosas, Ron Nield’s home-made soup and delicious cakes baked by a junior parent, our stalwart team made inroads into the painting of fences, screens and the score house. Thank...
If you were in Danescourt Road on a certain day in March you might have noticed a large Sight Screen, stately as a galleon, rolling along the road from The Chris Jewkes Fitness Centre towards Wergs Road. Destined for WCC and refurbishment, it took the combined efforts of a band of volunteers to push said screen all the way there, with two other volunteers bringing the traffic to a halt. Well done all.
