Pre-season Newsletter - from Robin Longmore

 

Barnards Green Cricket Club - Colts Section.  AGM.

The colts section AGM was held at the club on Sunday 6th November 2011 at 7.15pm.

Those present heard a report from Robin on yet another great season for the green

and the team and age group managers and coaches for the 2012 season were approved.

Minutes from the meeting are available upon request.

 

4th September - Under 11 final goes down to the wire.

Our under 11s appeared in their final against Kidderminster at Halesowen on Sunday morning.

A great performance by our talented under 11 squad saw the match go down to the last ball with Kidderminster

earning their victory by just 4 runs. A full match report is available here and photos can be seen here.

Many thanks to all of the travelling supporters including the "Green Army" and our three Chairmen

for their ( sometimes rather vocal ) support and encouragement.

Well played everyone.

And - a special message from one of our oldest members to some of our youngest:-

"Well done, you were splendid finalists, Max"

 

 

Friday 26th August 2011
We have a game at the club this coming Friday. Our under 11's have done exceptionally well this season and
have reached the semi finals of the regional phase of their competition. We will play local rivals Rushwick
who we have already beaten twice this season, albeit in very close encounters on both occasions. 
I have no doubt this game will be just as close and hopefully we can make it three wins out of three. 
The game is due to start around 6pm or slightly earlier if everyone is ready before.  There will be a BBQ
on and the bar will of course be open for anyone with a thirst on!  It would be great to see you all down there
to give the under 11's support on the night so if you fancy an evenings entertainment come on down and bring
the parents, there will be plenty of room for them to play on the outfield away from the game.

 

 

As a REGISTERED MEMBER of The Green you will be entitled to make use

of the Club's facilities, including the nets at various times during the season. Please remember

ALWAYS to wear protective clothing, ( helmet, pads, box. gloves etc ), when batting in the nets

Numbers to Words Quiz - Results
 Many thanks to all of you who bought a quiz sheet and had a go at the competition. We are pleased to
 say that this raised valuable extra funds for the Colts section. Congratulations to the winner
.
 

 

Diary Date - Friday 6th May.

Join us at the official opening of the fantastic new net facility at Northend Lane.

Thanks to the generous funding by The Joanna Brown Trust and the ECB, The Green now have training

facilities of the highest quality.

 

  We are delighted that Tim Curtis, former Worcestershire & England batsmen

  who came up through the BGCC Colts ranks will be joining us to open the facility.

  Please come along from 6pm onwards. All are welcome.
 

 

Important Reminder.

The new net facility is already proving popular with everyone.

BGCC is a "members only" club and the nets, are for the use of club members only as are the rest of the club's facilities.

The club stewards and ground staff may challenge anyone at The Green to prove their entitlement to be on the premises

and ALL CLUB MEMBERS should therefore carry their club membership card with them at all times when on the premises.

Remember - the staff do not know all members by sight and for insurance reasons will err on the side of caution!

Colts members have their cards issued by the colts section.

If you cannot find your card then let us know as soon as possible.

 

Match Reports from some previous Colts matches.


Sport on the telly....

The Green has Sky Sports on the big screen and so if you want to drag Mum or Dad along as your guest
to watch a match at any time then we'll be pleased to see you.
 

Please make sure that you check the Reports and Results section of the website for your game

There are already plenty of match reports on there.

 

Any player under 18 years of age batting or standing up when wicket keeping MUST wear a helmet and the ECB has

now come out and said that the parental consents previously used are NO LONGER to be accepted by clubs.

Also, if a young player acts as a runner, he/she must wear a helmet even if the adult player they are acting for is NOT wearing one.

training sessions etc, itís important that we have your correct details. .If you are one of our ďOld ColtsĒ and have been with us a while then please keep in touch
