Dear ##firstname##,

Hope you are all doing well.

Whilst the club is thriving, we are always on the lookout for new members of all ages and abilities. 

One way of us doing this is through social media, and we are looking to become more active on our Facebook & Twitter pages this year.

Whilst we don't want to bore you with endless posts everyday - we would appreciate if you could interact online with us by sharing, liking and commenting on our different posts.  Especially sharing those posts when we are advertising for new players as this will allow us to reach many more people, all your friends will see it.

04 Jan 2018 : Bradfield CC 2018 Winter Nets

Dear ##firstname##,

Happy New Year to you all, we hope you had a good Christmas & New Year break. 

We are delighted to confirm that the winter nets will begin on Friday 19th January at St Andrews School in Pangbourne.  With the support of our good friends at St Andrews, we are getting first use of their brand new fantastic indoor Sports facilities for our 10 week indoor training program.  

Nets will begin at 6:30pm with the following session splits

6:30-7:30 - U9s & U11s 

7:30-8:30 - U13s & U15s 

8:30-9:30 - Adults & U15s 

Afterwards - back to the cricket club for a drink 

We will have ten sessions each Friday night taking us up to Friday 23rd March, after the Easter break we will then look to start our outdoor training (weather permitting). 

Mike will send further communication for the junior parents around the timings and age group splits, we are also looking forward to welcoming those older junior players who started to play in Senior Cricket last season into the senior training session.  It will be great for the club for all our players of all ages to train together and interact as we move forward as a club. 

For adults, more information around the cost will follow in the coming weeks. 

We look forward to seeing you on the 19th January. 

Kind Regards,

Jack Byrne

22 Dec 2017 : Message from the Chairman

 


Dear ##firstname##, 

As you reach Christmas on any given year, you inevitably reflect on the past twelve months and wonder what the coming year will bring.

2017 has been another great year for Bradfield CC both on and off the field.

Off the field, we have successfully raised funds for our superb outdoor net facility, a new electronic scoreboard and clock and we look forward to the arrival of covers for the new season. We have also been awarded the Sport England/ECB ClubMark Accreditation.

It was extremely sad to report the passing of Margaret North, our ‘Tea Lady’ of many years. Margaret’s cricket teas were legendary in the Berkshire Cricket League keeping us at the top of the list most seasons in the eyes of the opposition skippers.

On the field, the junior section has gone from strength to strength with increased numbers in every age group and 4 teams from U9 to U15 now playing competitive league cricket. Special mention to the U9s who lost to Royal Ascot in the semi-final and the U13s who narrowly lost in the final to West Ilsley. 2017 also saw the first AllStars programme at the club with over 40 children having great fun every Friday. Special mention also goes to James Kane/Louis Harris/Freddie Goad/Oli Tozer/Harry Kane/Ben Armstrong/Toby Rae and Jemma Swire-Thompson for all making the Berkshire Cricket Winter Training Squads.

The Saturday sides played their last season in the BCL with the 1st XI winning the Division 1 title in the last game of the season and the 2nd XI finishing mid-table.

What will 2018 bring? Our first season in the Thames Valley Cricket League for both Saturday sides will be interesting. Lots of new clubs to visit, new challenges both on and off the field. As well as our continual development of youth cricket, we will try and push for a girls team this season, so if you have any daughters or sisters/friends that are keen to play cricket then get them to come along to training.

Personally, I would like to thank everyone who has helped at the club on Fridays, whether coaching or bbq or behind the bar or helping with the AllStars – your help is greatly appreciated.

And to the small group of people behind this club who maintain the ground, manage youth teams, coach, score, umpire and numerous other things to make the playing of cricket whether you are a junior or an adult very easy – you all know who you are and without you there would be no Bradfield CC.

Finally, on behalf of everyone at the club, can I wish all our members and parents a very Merry Christmas and a successful and healthy New Year.

With season's greetings

David

Bar open as usual

27 Mar 2016 : Big Thanks & Future Work Parties

Dear ##firstname##,

We had a very productive work party yesterday morning, with nearly 20 people in attendance.  This meant the planned car park driveway work was completed in two hours.  Aswell as saving the club over £100 in planned costs because of the speed of the work, it just shows how much can be done when a lot of people give up a few hours rather than a few giving up a lot of hours.   Everybody was home and finished by 12pm (including sausage & bacon butty break, supplied by the club). 

The below is just the start of the work that we want to complete before the season starts.  There is only three more Saturday's before the first Saturday game against Waltham on the 23rd April.    We want to keep the momentum and keep the work parties going for the next few weeks.   Unless you hear any differently the ground will be open from 9am and we will have a list of things that need completing each week.  

 


Kind Regards,

Jack Byrne
