Snow may have stopped play yesterday as the season’s opening friendly encounters against Luton Town fell victim to the weather … but there’s been plenty happening off the pitch.
The club is delighted that all-rounder Dave Steadman has been confirmed as second team skipper with Mark Winchester confirmed as his vice-captain.
Steady returned to action with the Seconds last year and made useful contributions with bat, ball and in the field. He will bring a wise head, plenty of experience and stability to the role after last year’s topsy-turvy league campaign.
Phoenix Financial is the new scoreboard sponsors, courtesy of Guy Warman. However, we are looking for more sponsors for ground perimeter advertising and, if you have any leads or ideas of organisations that may wish to take space, please contact Leroy on firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, please remember that we have a season’s Welcome Night on Friday, April 22, starting at 7pm with a Batmaker Roadshow from CF Bats and the arrival of our new overseas player, Keagan Foley.
It’s been a testing winter for our groundsmen, Ross Courtney and Mark Folwell, and the ground has been sodden in recent weeks.
However, all should be ready when the action gets under way, weather permitting, this weekend (April 23, 24) with friendly fixtures. Please make yourself available for as many games as possible and let the selectors know by filling in the Doodle chart.
