Hopefully you’ve all had the chance to play some cricket between the showers. It’s not all been plain sailing with the U14s suffering the most unusual reason for a postponement – a Scout Jamboree had booked their opponents’ facilities and half their team were taking part!
Don’t forget the tips of the ears!
Hats/caps are also a must, plus a non fizzy drink.
Join us for Friday night Fun and Razzmatazz.
Ist upThunder v The Camberley Canons
Let’s get ready to Rumble!
Congratulations to opener George Griffiths who hit a record unbeaten 164 for the U15s in their Premier League 40 overs match.
George has progressed through the junior ranks and was part of the victorious ECB Cup winning side last season.
Scoring Apps, Scoresheets, Umpiring and Guides
Apps – As well as the basics, all the popular ones can do lots of whizzy things such as wagonwheels, worms, manhattans if you wish – and all have quirks! (and can be weather prone)
TCS- Total Cricket scorer.- a slimmed down version of the county system – you can download fixtures from Play cricket and upload scorecards afterwards. Doesnt do pairs. App Version is £4.99 https://www.totalcricketscorer.com/TCSWeb/TCSHome.aspx
Cric Hq – another favourite with similar capabilities. Now Free. You can set up Pairs scoring and I believe can upload scorecards. https://www.crichq.com
NX Cricket – also capable of doing Pairs. Comes with a screen shot guide. They can all be a bit of trial and error to set up, though there are some Youtube guides and online user groups for them all! Try a fantasy match at home to get started! http://www.nxtreme.com/iphone/nxCricket-HD.html
Umpiring, scoring and scoresheets
If you wish to get to grips with normal scoresheet scoring instead, we have set up a section giving examples of symbols, umpire signals and score sheets, including those for Pairs. Thanks to Mervyn, the U12 manage,r for allowing us to use his guides.
Sponsorship & Guildford Beer Festival
As part of one of our main club sponsorships, Winkworth Estate Agents promote the Guildford Beer Festival in and around the Guildford/Surrey area with signage preceding the event.
They have asked the Guildford CC membership to have a board outside their homes for the 2/3 weeks prior to the Beer Festival. As a thank you gesture, each household will receive two free tickets to the Beer Festival on June 12th and 13th.
Those that are willing to have a board outside, please let me know, or alternatively please email Ben Holden at firstname.lastname@example.org. Ben works for SNAP Sponsorship and they help to support the cricket club in finding new sponsorship.
I look forward to your responses and showing main club sponsor, Winkworth, our support.
