Player of the month this Saturday, 8th August
We will be running a Player of the Month event this Saturday after our senior league matches. The captains will be giving a summary of results since the restart and announcing their players of the month.
The bar will be open at the clubhouse and Dave Squires will also be running a BBQ; all members are welcome to watch the 1st XI game vs Normandy and attend the BBQ .
Given the current circumstances we will need to take a register of all people attending.
Hope to see many of you there on Saturday.
The 2nd and final Player of the Month event will be taking place on 5th September.
Guildford Cricket Week
Guildford Cricket Week was a great success; after some dodgy weather on the Monday, the sun came out and provided some exciting cricket and showcased the depth of talent at the club. Huge thanks go to Tim Walter for organising!
The six-a-side tournament went down well, the highlight coming in the second match, when Stokes’ Guns (captained by Jaedyn Bartosh-Short) managed to run out four of their players in the first 10 balls of their innings, two of whom hadn’t faced a ball!
On the Wednesday, the 1st XI narrowly lost to The Wanderers CC despite 73 from captain Tom Collins and four wickets from Olly Birts.
Thursday, against Surrey University Old Boys saw another narrow defeat for Guildford by 3 wickets. Top performers were Ben Garrett with 54 and Malorie Short returning figures of 4-27 from her 14 overs. With several Guildford players representing the opposition, there was plenty of chat (good-natured!) out in the middle.
Friday’s Junior Day saw a great demonstration of the young talent at the club, with all age groups from U9 right up to U15 playing.
Details for next year’s Guildford Cricket Week will be released early next year.
Below is a roundup of results from the past week:
Don’t forget – you can keep up to date with the club’s activities on a weekly basis through our Pitchero bulletin.
