On Saturday 7 September we will be holding the eleventh annual Woking and Horsell awards, following our final league games, to celebrate the good, the sublime and the downright awful that neatly sums up a W&HCC season, particularly this one. As is usual, we have had plenty of all three this year and there has been lots of discussion as to who will win what.

We will be presenting a Player of the Year for each of our five teams as well as Batsman, Bowler, Fielder, Young Player and Clubperson of the year so there is much to play for as we enter the last couple of league games this season.

We will also be presenting many other awards to those whose season may not have hit the dizzy heights of those winning official awards. Injury of the Year and Most Ducks is a pretty close run thing this season!

The event will be held at the club as soon as is possible after our final league games, bearing in mind the first team are at Streatham, so please get back to the club as soon as you can.

This is always an extremely popular and well attended event so make sure you get it booked in your diary as soon as possible. You never know, you may win something! We hope you can make it. 

 

This weekend is an important one for the club as both the 1st XI and 2nd XI face big games in their battle against relegation. The first team host Old Hamptonians with the twos taking the short trip to Ashford. Please do come down and support the boys.

The Brewery Road bar will be open from 2pm for the 1st XI game and will be showing the rugby.

Our annual Drink the Fridge event, where we attempt to drink the fridge dry, will start at 5pm with promotional prices on offer.

We will also be running a BBQ later in the evening.

We have five teams out for the first time this season, with an interclub game at Westfield, so let’s have an enjoyable day!

Congratulations to our very own Elliott McPherson who has been nominated for an OSCA (Outstanding Services to Cricket Award), an award ceremony held by Surrey County Cricket Club, to recognise the hard work that he has put in at Woking and Horsell this season. OSCAs are awarded in a range of categories to highlight the many hours of voluntary work done across the county.

Elliot has been nominated as a Young Volunteer (14-18 year old category). His nomination is as follows:

“Elliott is still only 17 years old, but for the past three years has been helping to coach the younger children, regularly supporting their training on a Friday night, before his own training starts. He is often seen playing kwik cricket with the younger kids well after training has finished.    He has started to play open age cricket in the past two years and this season took on the captaincy of our Sunday team, who have also entered the T20 Sunday Slam, alongside 40 over matches. He is the youngest regular captain in the club's history and already making his mark as both captain and player. He is regularly playing in our Saturday 2nd XI too.     Elliott lives and breathes cricket. It is rare not to see him at the club on any night where there is cricket. If he isn't playing or coaching, he can be found watching. He is definitely one of our key clubmen already, despite his tender years.”

The award ceremony takes place on Sunday 18 August at the Kia Oval. We wish him the very best of luck.

We have arranged a friendly 20/20 match v our very near neighbours, The Squash Club at Brewery Road on Friday 2nd August starting at 6pm.

If anyone would like to play then can you please let Keith Goodwin know 07572 548063 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

This is a social event for all at the club so please come along and support and bring friends and family too. The BBQ will be fired up so the more the merrier and hopefully the weather will be good to us.

The bar will be open from 5pm.

 

We will need some volunteers to help run the bar and BBQ for an hour at a time. Again please contact Keith if you are able to help out.
