Travelbag offer for Surrey Championship members

 

Booking a long-haul holiday?

With Travelbag all club members & friends can get unbeatable prices when booking their next holiday - and by simply entering or quoting SURREY when making a booking, Travelbag will pay a revenue based commission to the Surrey Championship, which will be invested back into cricket in the county.

Don't forget therefore to maximise the benefit of our new relationship with Travelbag when booking your next holiday.

When asking for a quote, please state SURREY. There is a dedicated phone line for the sponsorship this year, which is 0871 4021503.

If you are booking online, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with your booking reference and quote SURREY. You can also do this retrospectively.

All commissions will be based on bookings on which SURREY is quoted.

Please note that commissions on bookings are not just open to Travelbag Surrey Championship members or friends, so please do tell everyone!

The AGM on Thursday was reasonably attended and saw a good level of non players getting involved and taking personal responsibility for the clubs growth. It is however disappointing with the size of our playing membership that a higher proportion of players did not attend. A good number of items were discussed and these will be reviewed and appraised by the below list of elected members and captains.

There are challenges ahead as we move towards the 2017 season. Therefore, we would very much welcome further assistance to continue making the club a fantastic environment to play and watch cricket. Please do not just rely on the few below as its as much your club as it is theirs. A small amount of help does go a long way. Apathy will hinder the clubs growth, please do not let that happen.

Enjoy the close season and lets make the 2017 season the best.

The Annual Woking & Horsell AGM is one of the most important events of the year. In short it discusses and decides the fundamentals of the 2017 cricket season. Anything from nominating new captains, committee members, playing requirements, the pitch, finances and subscriptions to name just a few items.

This meeting allows all existing and potential members to voice their praise, views or opinions on how our club is run.

The club has a reasonably sized membership, including the colt section. However, the administration side is run by a small number who provide their time and passion to ensure regular cricket is maintained and played. In view of the small number not all roles are filled and often due to the size of some jobs support is often required. 

The club prides itself on its cosmopolitan and community spirit. There are however times when there are critical or ongoing matters whether playing or administration that need to be resolved and its not possible as we are stretched or simply we are not aware of them. So why not give some time to your club and make it better place than it is already? You love cricket and have the pleasure of enjoying the club facilities, so why not show your appreciation rather than just playing because someone else has organised it?

Please do not leave it to others as there is so much the few can do.

Come to the AGM lets hear your voice, opinion and lets make a difference to this great club.

 

 

 

As you maybe aware  this summer Surrey County Cricket Club ran the yearly Bedser Scholarship campaign to find and support local talent within the state schools. Woking & Horsell were honoured that Surrey County Cricket Club nominated three out of the six scholars from our club. Well done to Alexander McPherson, Jude Silverton and Ramish Malik.   As part of their Scholarship all six winners receive funding towards kit and membership fees as well as winning 13 hours of coaching at the Surrey Indoor Cricket Centre in Guildford. 

To celebrate and promote the award they undertook recently a photo opportunity on the Bedser Bridge in Woking with Surrey and England legend Mickey Stewart. 

A Work Day will be held at the club on Saturday 17 September to take down the nets and sightscreens and tidy up the ground before the winter break. Please make every effort to attend. We aim to start at 10.00 but if you're not there until a bit later that is fine. Many hands make light work!
