Clanfield Cricket Club scores successful year

There have been top scores all round for Clanfield Cricket Club this year. Not only have the men’s team gained league promotion but the positive response to junior and ladies’ cricket programmes has been overwhelming. Building on this success the club will be running junior and ladies’ cricket on Tuesday evenings at the Clanfield Centre throughout the winter; all welcome to participate.

Club spokesman Mike Collins thanked everyone for their support over the summer, adding:

”The men’s league team gained promotion in our 1st year in the Hampshire Cricket league and we will be adding a 2nd league side for next season. Wane we intend to enter at least one Women’s Soft Ball team into the Hampshire league next season.

“At our festival day at South Lane Meadow we held junior, women’s and men’s cricket matches. The response was absolutely fantastic and we had families and people from the local area there all day participating in and watching the cricket, it was a real community atmosphere. Clanfield Online sponsored the ladies game by providing printed t-shirts and the Hampshire Cricket Board helped out with equipment and advertising material.

“We’ve had nearly 50 kids signed up for the junior cricket programme during the summer which has been a real success story.  We also had 22 ladies signed up for the Women’s Soft Ball Cricket taster day that also proved to be a great success – hence our winter training sessions at the Clanfield Centre. 

“Our first season of junior and ladies’ cricket has opened our eyes to what can be achieved through opening our cricketing doors to the wider community.  We have had some really complimentary feedback and we intend to build on the momentum that has been created with your help and support.”

There’s more news coming soon about plans for a pavilion in the village – more about that in the next update.
