Welcome to the 1st Club Cricket Conference Newsletter of 2016

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.
At CCC 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.  Click here to read the AGM report
Please make sure that you use the CCC website to access our extensive fixture schedule for Representative and Women’s Xls.

Belhus Cricket Club were the last team standing as they won the ECB Indoor National Championship final yesterday, following a day of high tension and excellent cricket at Lord's. 

The first semi-final at the MCC Indoor Academy brought together Belhus CC and Haverfordwest CC from Wales.

Batting first, Haverfordwest were put under early pressure by opening Belhus bowler Danny Norris, who enjoyed a maiden wicket in his second over when he caught and bowled Simon Holliday for eight.

At the time of writing the England Deaf cricket team have just arrived in Dubai for the DICC Championships where they will play against India, Pakistan and South Africa.  The England Deaf cricket set-up are looking for new players to add to their squads and be involved in the Deaf cricket pathway.  Are there any Deaf or Hearing Impaired cricketers at your club?  If so, England Deaf Cricket would like to hear from them.   There are currently three county Deaf teams at Lancashire, Nottinghamshire and Surrey and more counties are developing Deaf cricket in their area.  For more information contact England Cricket Association for the Deaf development officer Darren Talbot at or on 07912 873591.
