Thought I’d tried and write you all a newsy piece before the season gets started….so here goes, it’s probably going to end up a bit lengthy but please stick with it!!!
Winter nets – Seniors
I hear there’s been some new players along on a Sunday, welcome to Windsor CC and look forward to meeting you during the summer.
Winter nets – Juniors
We’ve been a bit short on numbers this winter especially in the older age groups, u14 & u15. If you know anyone of this age group who wants to play please do put them in touch.
We need a manager for the u9s and for the u15s this season, please do think about getting involved in this. The juniors are the future of the club and especially at u15 is the age we start them playing in the senior sides.
These are coming together and we’re hopeful of the first game being on 7th April – if we can persuade the council to let us use Home Park.
Starts week commencing 16th April
The schedule this year is:
Monday – One to one coaching with Howard and Windsor Junior Academy training
Tuesday – Whole club, 3rd/4th/5th teams in the nets, 1st & 2nd teams fielding/middle practice
Wednesday – u15s and any u13s who wish to play up
Thursday – 1st/2nd teams in the nets, 3rd/4th/5th teams fielding practice
Friday – u9s/u11/u13s
The bar will be open after training on Tuesdays & Thursday – please do stop for an isotonic beer or three!!
Also on Fridays the bar will be open so all the parents can come along and hopefully some of the senior players as well to see the budding talent in the club and have a few more beers.

This has been updated over the winter – great job Edgey, many thanks.
Tim Hale is now putting in a lot of time getting more content on the site and keeping it up to date – thanks Tim.
This seasons fixtures have been loaded and we’re hoping that this year will finally be the year we get loads of match reports for ALL sides posted.
It’s a great advert for the club so please help make it even better!!!
Windsor CC is also on Facebook & Twitter, find us, follow us and get involved.
As I committed to at the AGM, all the captains are making progress on this and we aim to publish before the first league games.
Pre-season tidy up day
The council have booked us a skip for the weekend of 14th/15th April
Please do come along and help with the tidy up – many hands make light work.
To Ritchie Noble & Mel who got engaged recently – I hear they had a great engagement party at the clubhouse a couple of weekends back.
Thinking of Ritchie, I also hear that he’s working hard on the first social of the season to be held hopefully before the first league game – no pressure Ritchie!!!!
This year on Mon 27th August (public holiday) we’re playing the MCC – should be a great game.
More details from Tony Monk.
Howard Grice – England Masters game
Howard and his team are hosting a game against a PCA England Masters XI at Normandy Cricket Club on Thursday 14th June.
I am sure that Windsor CC will be able to support this day and between us we should be able to get a table or maybe 2 together.
Sounds like it should be a super day, if you’re interested, I’ll co-ordinate our table.
Full details on the attached poster.
As always please get in touch if there’s anything you want to talk about or get involved in.
Remember, it’s your club and it needs your help in many ways.
Chairman Windsor CC
