by Ian Burrows 0 Comments

The league averages are now available in the downloads section the League
website. 9 of our players feature: Abhijit in the first team batting with
Chris in the bowling (just)! For the second team Graham (averaging over
100), Kev S and Dave S feature in the batting with Lee 2nd in the bowling,
which also features golden arm Steve Noton. Dave S and Graham also have
their centuries recorded.The final 2 mentions are for Shiv C and Will in
the 6 wickets plus in an innings sections.

Well done to all of them.

If you want to shine next season be prepared for nets starting on January
25th at the Ageas Bowl!

Its tough in Division 1

The indoor league team played their third indoor game last night against
University A. We welcomed Prath to the team, enjoying a weekend in
Southampton. We batted first and managed 103 all out, with Bob top scoring
on 26. We were controversially denied some more runs in the last over when
Shiv was given out caught off a ball which most spectators thought was
above waist high; he had scored 5 runs from it (including 2 overthrows).
This would have given us 8 more runs in total (3 for the no ball), an extra
ball and Shiv still batting! They made the runs for 2 wickets with an over
to spare. We bowled steadily with few bad balls but they batted well. The
highlight was an excellent catch by Abhijit.
The next game on December 3rd will be in the new Fleming Park so maybe that
will bring an upturn in results!

We held a well attended meeting last night at which we thanked retiring
captains and officers for all their hard work. We presented flowers to
Julie as a special thank you for her work over several years as secretary.

Officers for the next year were appointed as follows:

Chairman and secretary: Ian Burrows
Vice chairman: Nigel Keir
First team captain: Ed Hardwicke
Second team captain: Steve Noton
Indoor captain: Bob Kinnear
Treasurer: Ludo Kowalewski
Social secretary: Abhijit Jagadeesh
Web-master: Michael Dodd

Other decisions of immediate interest:

– to introduce a £20 annual membership. For those who pay this match
fees will remain £10. For anyone who does not pay match fee to be £12.
Students, Under 18s and unwaged to pay £5 with no annual charge
– to seriously look into gaining use of the upstairs area and balcony
for teas etc on match days
– to look at alternative venues for nets to provide more lanes so that
one can have a definite coaching emphasis
– to look in to restarting some sort of midweek cricket in the season
– to support possible changes to league rules of 40 overs per side in
Regional divisions (still 45 in County divisions) and maximum overs per
bowler to be 20% of total
– To support 1.00 start time in County leagues and 1.30 in Regional but
argue that it should be 1.00 in both
– to agree the members charter, which was circulated prior to the
meeting and will now be posted on the website

All members were urged to be on the look out for potential new members. A
recruiting poster is available from me if anyone can display it.

The meeting concluded with excellent refreshments!
