Sonning Cricket Club seek to strengthen……

'February’s ice and sleet freeze the toes right off your feet' according to Flanders and Swann, but the Sonning boys will be back in action, bending their backs and smiting the leather at the Bluecoat School's indoor nets  every from Tuesday Feb 18th 6.30pm till 7.45pm through to April 29th

The Club welcomes back Olly Clayson, last seen at Pound Lane in 2006, since when he's been at Farnham Royal and representing Bedfordshire.  He takes over as the first team skipper from Gary Phillips, who steps down after a remarkable 20 years at the helm, in which time the first team won 8 league championships!  

New chairman, Jamie Travers, told me. 'Under the stewardship of the previous chairman, Ali Driver, the club has made significant progress both on and off the field. In the last couple of years alone more than £35,000 has been invested in the club's playing facilities which include a relaid square some 18 months ago.  Having, in the last few seasons cemented a mid-table position; it is a key objective of the club that the 1st team push on and challenge for promotion to division 1 of the Thames Valley League.  Olly's return is a tremendous boost and we hope that his arrival and the recent investment made in the playing facilities will attract more quality players'.

'Looking ahead the club's burgeoning junior section led by Nick Ray is already producing talented youngsters, a number of whom played in the club's Saturday league 2nd, 3rd and 4th teams last season. The club's under 13’s also won division 2 of the Berkshire Youth Cricket League defeating Newbury by 9 wkts in the final'.

'As well as improving standards on the field, we also wish to maintain our reputation as a friendly, welcoming club where members, visitors and their guests can enjoy the cricket and the clubhouse facilities during and after the game.  These are exciting times at the club as it enters its 263rd season'! 

Jamie.
