A View From The Captain

Following a season of consolidation following relegation from Division One of the Birmingham League, the 1st XI are looking to mount a sustained challenge for promotion this year. The winter has proved tough with the losses of key players in the form of Julius Benjamin, Shaun Liebisch and Ateeq Javed. The committee have worked hard behind the scenes in the wake of new legislation making the recruitment of new players ever more difficult. So far we are delighted to have added Chris Whittock from Aldridge CC, Imran Jamiel from Dorridge CC, Hassan Ansari from Sutton Coldfield CC and Christi Viljoen, an exciting all round cricketer from Northerns in South Africa has joined up with us for the summer. The team is now taking shape, and with a couple more potential additions, to join up with stalwarts of the 1st XI Neal Prichard and Peter Evans, it is set up to be an exciting season at Church Road.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the great efforts of the Cricket Committee throughout the close season, and also to the continued support the General Committee has provided to take this club forward. The ground is in great shape, the best it has looked in years thanks to hard work from head groundsman Dave Betty and his team. A big thanks must also go to Tempus, our main sponsors, and Alan at the Tennis Courts Pub for their generous and greatly appreciated support.

Here’s to a great summer’s cricket, and look forward to our band of loyal spectators boysterous support!
