Farningham Cricket Club – March 2018

Winter nets have now started and will run for the next 5 weeks when we will be able to get outside and hopefully it will be a whole lot warmer! Nets are on Thursday evenings at 8pm – 9:30pm at the Leigh Academy in Dartford. Newcomers are always welcome (15 and up). We will also be running soft ball cricket session for ladies and we would love anyone who is keen to come and join our emerging ladies team. The first session is free and thereafter it is £5 so ladies and gentlemen come and join us!

Our junior session will start on 19 April 2018 if you are keen then please contact Simon Evans (simon.evans@farninghamcc.co.uk) or simply turn up on the day. Again the first session is totally free as a taster session and we run sessions for 5 – 15 year olds. This year the club will be partaking in the ECB All Stars programme for 5-8 year olds. This is an 8 week course starting on Thursday 17 May designed as an introduction to the game and will be fun filled and active. The registration fee includes a free pack of goodies, including shirt, bat, balls and more. Our registration fee covers your child for the whole season, not just the 8 week course. You can register online at www.ecb.co.uk/plav/all-stars. The website also has more details on the course and the goodie bag contents.

The club will be hosting a Quiz Night on Friday 27 April as a club fundraiser. If you are interested in taking part and entering a team then please contact Debbie Bensley on dbensley(S>talktalk.net for more details. This is always a very well attended event so get in there early!

Our NatWest ground force day will be on Saturday 24 March from 9:30am.

This is a chance for us all to get together to get the ground and pavilion ready for the new season. As ever, there is plenty of work to be done to get everything ready. We had a rather large leak over the summer, resulting in an insurance claim, thank fully this was covered but there is extra work to be done, cleaning covers and sightscreens etc. If you are free then come along and lend a hand. Free tea and coffee as well as bacon sarnies will be on offer for those that attend!

A new Ladies Team at the club, read paragraph 1!
