Kesgrave Cricket Club: New Season, New Hope

A quick word from the lovely folks at the Kesgrave Cricket Club:

After what can only be described as a year to forget, we have high hopes that cricket will return in the UK in 2021 and we are already preparing for it. It started in September when the square maintenance took place. Since then, our groundsmen have been working on the square and it is looking good so we can’t wait to get going.

After managing to get in a few games and some junior coaching sessions last year, we hoped we had seen the worst of the pandemic and were starting to think about winter indoor coaching for the juniors in early January. As we all know, things quickly changed and, unfortunately, we haven’t been able to run any sessions so far and it is looking unlikely that we will get in any winter coaching this year.

2020 was successful off the pitch as we managed to install our new electronic scoreboard and scorers hut and we’re looking forward to using them.

We haven’t been able to plan any pre-season indoor net sessions yet but please keep an eye on our website and social media for any updates. Anyone wishing to join us this year, please get in touch.

The Two Counties Fixtures have been released for 2021 and our first team is in Division 2 and our second team is in Division 7 and both look forward to playing teams like Bury St Edmunds, Woolpit, Clacton, Frinton and Mildenhall. The fixtures should be loaded to our website soon. Our first home fixture is currently planned to be on Saturday 17 April.

Our AGM took place in January over Zoom. The only change in the committee was that Richard Bradley has been replaced by Sam Colver as welfare officer.

As always, we welcome sponsors and volunteers who would like to help our club. If you can help our groundsmen, scorers, coaches or management, please contact us through our website. The club will pay for any coaching or training courses attended.
