Sixty five of W&HCC's finest attended the annual Cricket Ball at Sutton Green Golf Club on Saturday night.
A huge thank you must go to Teresa Green for organising an excellent event. A truly huge task! Thank you also to Helen Smith for sourcing many of the raffle prizes. The big prize of the night, two air tickets to anywhere in Europe courtesy of club sponsor Global Travel Management, was won by Andrew Murphy (ahem). Here's to next year!
The annual AGM saw many changes this year as several long-standing committee members resigned their posts after years of hard work. Peter Smith thanked the likes of Neil Cheetham, Jamie McMahon, Damien Honey, Matt Lock and James Williams for all of their efforts. The resignation of many of the committee's "big hitters" gives the opportunity to bring in some new members and Jack Allen (bar), Tom Harlow (membership), Mike Tiplady (colts) and Mark Worgan (social) will be joining the new look committee. Jamie, Damo, Matt and James have also agreed to stay on as members without portfolio so will have one of the biggest committees we've ever had.
There were also plenty of changes on the cricket side too. James Woods becomes the new 1st XI captain and Phil West will skipper the second team in 2014. The final change sees Johnny Ayling take over from John Hargan as the man in charge of the Sunday first team.
Good luck to all with their new appointments.Read more: Several changes at the W&H AGM
Through their Community Matters programme, Goldsworth Park Waitrose have donated £225 to Woking & Horsell Cricket Club.
The money will be used to support the club’s programme to develop junior Deaf cricket which was launched in conjunction with Twenty20 Cricket last summer. The goals of the programme include hosting junior coaching sessions at Brewery Road, establishing regular fixtures for Deaf teams and feeding players into the Surrey Deaf Cricket squad. Our sincere thanks go to Waitrose for their support in assisting the development of deaf cricket in Surrey.
Everyone at WHCC would like to give a thoroughly well-deserved ‘thank you’ to our groundsman, Ken Rapley and his family for all their hard work this season. Ken has provided brilliant pitches, outfields and facilities at Brewery Road and Westfield not just for our Saturday league sides, but also for our Sunday teams, the T20 mid-week teams and our whole Colts section. The league averages for pitch and facilities (marked by panel umpires) have been published and WHCC scored very well across all measures thanks to all Ken’s work and the important investments made in facilities by the committee in recent years. WHCC scored maximum points for umpire’s facilities, high scores for ground prep and pitch performance, and THE highest fair play average score of any 1st XI in the entire Surrey Championship.
Well done and thanks to all involved.
