It may seem a little way off yet but with the weather improving and March just a few days away it will soon be time for the cricket season to begin again.
 
Pre-season will follow a familiar format but for the benefit of our newer members, it will begin with a work day on Saturday 13 April to set the club up for the season and the following week, Easter Saturday, will be a club Training Day which will once again be held at our ground in Brewery Road in Horsell. 
 
Our first Saturday pre-season games begin on Saturday 27 April when the 1st and 2nd XIs will both take on Chertsey and a combined 3rd and 4th team will play against Weybridge. 
 
The following week we will see our regular pre-season fixture against Ashford with the ones and twos taking on our near neighbours. That day will also see a third and fourth eleven internal match which will take place at Westfield. 
 
The Sunday season starts on Sunday 28 April against Winning Innings at Brewery Road.

The club is looking for a Treasurer to join the committee as soon as possible. 
 
It would be advantageous to have a finance background, however, it is not essential as training will be provided. The role takes just a few hours per week through the year with an additional couple of hours per week at the end of each month. It should be noted that this is a voluntary position.
 
If you are interested in the position or you have any questions about what the role entails then please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
 
We would also like to say a huge thank you to Janice Woods who steps down as our Treasurer having been in the role for a number of years.

This year’s W&HCC quiz will take place on Saturday 2 March. The bar will be open from 6:30 with the quiz starting at 7.30. If you would like to enter a team (maximum of six people) then please do let Tim Keene know by contacting him at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

 

As usual everybody is welcome so get your teams together to kick the W&H social year off. We are expecting a big turnout for this event so please do get your teams in early as we don’t have a huge amount of space and may not be able to cater for everyone.

 

Fish and chips will be available but these need to be ordered in advance so please let Tim know at least a week in advance before if you would like to order. 

 

Thanks very much.

We have identified an overseas player who is interested in coming to Woking this summer, however, we need the help of the membership to find him some accommodation for the period between April and September.

The right sort of recruitment can deliver a player who will make a much greater contribution than just run-scoring and wicket-taking, particularly through a role in coaching our youth teams.

In the past, the exceptional generosity of one or two members in offering accommodation cost-free has helped the Club to get the services of an overseas players. We realise this is asking a lot, but equally we won’t attract offers unless we make the plea. If you think you could help or you have any questions please contact Henri Peters at This email address is being protected from spambots.

The Surrey Championship fixtures for 2019 have been published and the headline news for next season is the regionalisation of the third and fourth eleven leagues. This will radically reduce the amount of travelling time to games with the aim of encouraging more people to play cricket. That is something we are also very keen to promote as a club. The furthest that the third eleven will travel next season is Farnham whilst the fourth eleven won’t travel any further than Old Ruts with local derbies against Chertsey, Weybridge Vandals, Normandy and Cobham Avorians to look forward to.

The 1st XI also have a new group of fixtures following their excellent promotion last season although the regionalisation does not apply to them. The ones start with an away game at Addiscombe, with the seconds welcoming Bank of England to Brewery Road. The third eleven will host Staines and Laleham with the fourths travelling to Sunbury.
