So, Dear Reader, the start of another season with all the challenges which Cricket Clubs face at this time of year.
In a recent survey
by All Out Cricket Magazine, clubs indicated that they would benefit from shorter matches of “overs” cricket, starting at 1.00pm. They listed their main challenges as finding volunteers, finances, finding players, facilities and red tape. Do you agree?? Contact us though the website with your opinion.
we have a new Chairman, a new Board and a challenging agenda to pursue so that we can provide all the necessary assistance to grass-roots cricket which we have spent the past 100 years achieving. It might be said that Club Cricket in this era, particularly those clubs involved in leagues, are now the “middle class” of established cricket, with the County Boards being the aristocracy. On that basis, the grass-roots are represented by the smaller clubs, the local authority park players, and the wanderers. CCC, through its participation in the National Cricket Conference, is determined to address the issues facing these constituents, and is in active contact with cricket’s hierarchy to help to provide the solutions to those challenges.
