Indoor League/New Kit/Youth Section Meeting/Christmas Bash/Six a Side and Table Tennis Tournament

Posted 22 November 2016 11:50 by peter.j.reynolds

Indoor Winter League

The Havering Indoor league is now defunct so the committee having been working on ensuring we still play competitive indoor cricket during the winter.

In the New year, it is likely we will be invited to play in the South Essex Indoor Cricket League, which will be played at the Gateway Academy, near Grays, on a Monday night. We will also be looking to  get a youth team playing in the South Essex indoor league.

Also in the New year, to supplement this, Jono will be organising on a monthly basis at Campion School Sports Hall a 3 team inter club 6 a side round robin series of matches. This will ensure everyone that wishes to play indoor cricket can do so.

New Playing Kit

New kit will be available to order in the next few months, so playing shirts, T20 shirts, tracksuit tops, tracksuit bottoms and shorts will be available to buy. Anyone that has fully paid their annual subs from 2016 will receive a discount on their order, courtesy of the sponsorship money from Rainham Village Kebab.

Please contact Jas Hothi on 07794-949771 before the year ends to get your order in.

Youth Section Meeting

This meeting took place at the clubhouse on 9th November and its welcome to Joe Attfield as the new under 15s manager (assisted by Charlie and Abdal), Darren Wallace who will be going on a coach support worker course and Kelly Wallace who will be attending a Club Welfare Officer course. Sharon Adkins will be standing down from the Welfare Officer role and we all wish to thank her for the countless number of hours of voluntary service that Sharon has put into Rainham Cricket Club.

Jay and Warren will lead the under 13s this year and Peter and Paul Newman will be taking charge of the under 11s.
