Blankney Cricket Club - Update Spring 2011
After the euphoria of the national team's success in the ashes series, we at the cricket cannot wait for the 2011 season to start.
Work continues to be done on the ground to ensure that it is in tip top condition for the start of the new season. It is also hoped that the exterior of the pavilion will also be completely repainted. Hopefully this can be done as part of the NatWest Cricket Force 2011 weekend which takes place on the weekend of the 8,9 and 10 of April. http://www.ecb.co.uk/development/natwest-cricketforce/ - so if anyone would like to get involved please contact me at one of the contact numbers below.
Pre season indoor cricket nets will start on Thursday 3 March at 7.30pm at RAF Digby and will run for 6 consecutive weeks. Our thanks go to RAF Digby for letting us use their facilities. If anyone wishes to come to the nets, and all are welcome, please let me know as a list of those attending is needed to gain access to the facility.
As always, the club is looking for match ball sponsors to help ease our match day costs. Unfortunately it costs a lot of money to run a cricket club and as with everything these costs keep rising, from balls to umpires fees.
The club will again have two weekend teams playing in the South Lincs & Border League on a Saturday and the McKinnells Lincoln League on a Sunday. There will also be a midweek team which again will play under the title of Blankney Estates.
If anyone wishes to join the club, then again please contact me.
Our annual general meeting will be held on Thursday 24 February when our respective officers will be decided for the current year. These will no doubt have been decided by the time this article is published.
