Welcome to the 2nd Club Cricket Conference Newsletter

CCC Representative XI v Essex 2nd XI - 20th May 2014
Dear Reader

All at CCC hope that you have wintered well and that your clubs and players are enjoying the start of the new season.

The first cricketing Newsletter of the season has reports of our early representative matches. For the match against Middlesex on 6 May, the side scheduled to be selected was badly affected - but for all the right reasons. Tanveer Sikandar was selected by Essex for their championship match against Leicestershire; Aaron West (Brentwood C.C.) was selected by Hampshire for his first class debut, and Imran Qayyum (Loughton C.C.) was offered a contract by Kent, meaning he is no longer eligible for repsentative selection by CCC.  The match reports can be found here.

All at CCC wish these three every success as they pursue their cricketing hopes and dreams and we offer our heartiest congratulations on their selections.

Charles Randall brings us the news of the shocking death of Dave Percy of King's Langley, mid-over, playing for his beloved club and a must-read article on the ECB/Waitrose Open Day.

We also report on the con-man thefts from a club in the Kingston area which should act as a warning to us all. Just in case you missed it on the CCC website, there is a wonderful chance for two players from the South Asian League Forum to play in the All Out Cricket end of season competition at Arundel.

We also reprint the page from the yearbook on the Rob George Foundation which has the full support of the CCC.

Look out for our 'Updates' during the summer, and please feel free to send any items of interest for inclusion to

A Warning To All Clubs!

A club in the Kingston area has recently suffered a serious theft and it may be linked to a scam involving a new player wanting to join the club.

A new player got in touch via email asking to play (was selected for a Sunday game) and came to the club on the Saturday to watch. He was very helpful offering to help out with teas and clearly had a background in cricket. However, during the game two players were robbed of cash and a car stolen. On investigation, a number of other concerns were highlighted such as the person in question offering to collect the valuables of the opposition, who had then locked them in the changing rooms themselves as they were worried. At the end of the game this person was nowhere to be seen and has not been contactable since and is therefore seen as a prime suspect for the thefts that occurred. He is aged around 30 and is 5'9" and has a scar under his left eye.

The club are concerned that this person may strike again at another local club, so we would ask you to remain vigilant as the season progresses.
