2023 Close of Season & Save the Dates

07 Sep 2023

Dear Members,

As another season draws to a close a few updates from the club:-

Senior League Finishes

Epic end to the season saw club history being made as the 4 league XIs all won.
We've never quite managed to have a clean sweep before.
An excellent BBQ hosted by the 2nd XI and a bowl off won by George Jarvis completed the celebrations.

Congrats to the 1st and 2nd XIs who both finished 3rd in their leagues.
A really strong performance, and encouraging for next season.
With a bit of league hokey cokey its still possible one of them could end up promoted.

The 3rds solidified their position in 10W after promotion in 2022, whilst the 4ths
finished a respectible 5th in 11N under new leadership of Will, Roger and Rod.


We also managed to field a friendly 5th XI a record 4 times.
A great testament to the health of the club and cricket at Wheathampstead.

Colts Awards
On Sunday we had a great day, led by Eamonn running various games for the younger kids and rounded
off with the awards for each age group in the sunshine.
Huge thanks again to all the coaches and Roger for making it happen.
