Welcome to the 2nd Club Cricket Conference Newsletter of 2016

Having a great Summer, Dear Reader?  How many games abandoned or called off?  Well it can only get better!
This Newsletter sees an exciting initiative put together by our friends at The Club Cricket Charity and All Out Cricket Magazine which will, possibly for the first time, ask cricketing organisations what they would spend money on to enhance their positions.  It is open to established Clubs, wandering sides and, importantly, clubs and teams existing on Local Authority pitches and parks. The results of the survey will help The Club Cricket Charity to focus their efforts on what is really needed. Please complete it through the link here
In this context I draw your attention to a recent article on the website regarding the availability of defibrillators at grounds where cricket is played. Please read the article below.

With the perennial problems of unhelpful neighbours, Clubs may be interested in one of our members’ recent successes in a planning dispute. Please read the article below.

One of our commercial partners – Somak Travel – has a useful addition to make, and we also have a useful introduction to Last Man Stands.
When possible due to weather, our cricket sides have had a mixed season.  Obtain the link here to see the results to date and also have a look at the fixture list.  We may be playing near you in the near future so come along and support the Conference teams.

Pray for good weather and better cricket!

Nick Rogers, 61, the Devon captain, felt unwell as he returned to the Hampshire Hogs CC pavilion after being dismissed and he suffered cardiac arrest near the boundary edge. A defibrillator was used before air ambulance paramedics  arrived to give further emergency treatment. Read more here

Council backs embattled Totteridge against neighbours

Totteridge-Millhillians have been playing cricket at their tree-ringed ground since 1928, the year as Totteridge CC they moved from the village common to a less prominent venue away from road traffic, but attempts to create a less sloping outfield to fit their Hertfordsire Premier League status were opposed at every turn until a recent council decision in their favour.

The National Cricket Playing Survey offers you the chance to have your say and influence the future of the cricket you play.  

This year's survey is the shortest ever and will only take around 10 minutes of your time. You can give feedback on your satisfaction with the game, the effectiveness of any changes you’ve experienced, and your thoughts on how your club cricket should continue to change.

You will also have the chance to enter in a draw to win a £250 voucher for the ECB online shop, which stocks all the latest playing equipment.
