- Our first colts session took place last night. Just over 30 budding cricketers took to the outfield and were put through their paces by our excellent coaches and supported off the field but mums, Ken and various bar staff / helpers. My massive thanks to all those concerned that give their time freely to help shape and secure the future of our club. May the sun shine on Wednesday evenings in EN2..... If you can/want to help and are not doing so already, then please let me know.
- Yesterday was also a MOMENTOUS day for all of us at the club for another reason. Finally our planning permission was granted by LBE which was the final hurdle for us to overcome. The nets that will be installed will be on a par with the very best in Middlesex/Hertfordshire. I feel/know that this development is the biggest single bit of good news that our club has had in decades. It has been a pleasure to spearhead the considerable work needed to get us to this place. I can not wait to see both colts and adults benefiting and enjoying the new facility.

- Although we have had a couple of turned down lately, we have had one more funding success. We have been awarded £3,000 to replace our worn out astroturf strip at the bottom of our table. The cost saving to do it at the same time as the nets is considerable, so this is again excellent news! There are numerous other projects that I'm working on, I will keep you all updated.....
- Fixture cards are out and you should all have one. If not please come and see me, Gleno or Mally.

- Even after loads of chasing our online shop is not 'quite' live. I'm sorry for the delay. I will update as soon as I can, but there has been one order made (not sure how you did it Zach!), but the garments were sent out very quickly and quality / finish were excellent; so this is a good sign!
- I got sent this link the other day to test my cricketing puzzle solving. I'm up to 28 solved, see how you get on. Some clues are really tricky. http://www.whatzat.co.uk/
