  It's back!!! WHCC Fantasy Cricket Returns

Following the huge success of the fantasy league over the past few years a few of members of the W&H family have kicked off the 2012 fantasy league.

Due to the weather causing almost zero cricket to take place so far this season we have had a chance to fine tune the pricing and format. Each manager pays just £6 for every team they enter (down from £10 last year) and there is NO LIMIT on the amount of teams that can be entered per manager. A cash prize will be calculated once everybody has entered! It would be great if everyone can get on board and enter at least one team.

To set up your fantasy league team and see the rules, click on the image above and select "Register For a new Account", or just click here.

If anyone has any questions about this please feel free to contact Liam Monaghan, Damien Honey or James Williams.

With the growing number of players, Woking & Horsell CC has decided to use a new system to manage availability and help in the selection process.

We are going  to use Clubhouse App - a web based system which will enable you to communicate your availability and make it easier for the Cricket Committee to publish team selection in a timely manner.

A large number of invitations have been sent out today, but I did not have everyone's email address. If you have received an invitation, please reply and we'll set you up. You can then confirm availabilty for the Saturdays in May. The Sunday fixtures will be added in the next day or so.

Please note - if you have not received an invitation please email me on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and I will send one to you. 

Once the system is up and running we intend to use it for all selection decisions - so please use it!

Thanks and hopefull we will get some cricket played soon!!

Outdoor nets have now commenced at our home ground on Brewery Rd. These will be run weekly on Tuesdays from 6:00pm. Optional additonal net sessions will also take place on Thursdays from 6:00pm. We will be making generous use of the bowling machine, so come along to work on defending those 90 mph inswinging yorkers!

Keep and eye on our twitter feed (also in the left panel of this page) or our facebook page for up to the minute news on any rain cancellations or other changes.

If you have any questions or would like to know more about potential membership please contact our cricket chairman Billy Hargan.

Congratulations to those from Woking and Horsell CC that completed the London Marathon at the weekend.

After months of hard training and cheered on by a select band of members at the 23 mile mark, Roger White completed in 4 hrs 2 minutes, Jarrad Hubble 4 hrs 7 mins and Adam Portlock 4 hrs 41 mins.

We hope that the aching limbs don't take too long to recover and that we see you back on the cricket pitch soon!

A massive thank you to everyone who contributed to making this the most successful Race Night the club has had in almost a decade. A highly entertaining and amusing evening attended by over 50 people from adult playing members of all ages, social members, other halves, friends, families and new members, saw a number of notable winners and an equal number of notable losers!

Highlights were a win in his retirement race for 'Coucho Star', Teresa Green winning £90 in the Auction Race, Noreen Grafton picking up £50 for the Tricast and horses owned by Jarrad Hubble (2), Matt Lock (2), John Wolff, Jon Ayling, James Morley, Mike Walsh, Nick Tune, Charlie Eve and James Smith all won on the night.

All of this, plus heavy takings behind the bar ensure that the club was the biggest winner raising nearly £1000.

Many thanks to those who helped me out - Matt Lock for a great all round effort, Ian Horlock, Andrew Murphy and Oli Guy on the door and the tote, Liam Monaghan for the tricast, Ed Harman, Jamie McMahon and Giles Green on the bar, Peter Murphy for ensuring that the auction was competitive, Jerry Allan for lending us the PA so i could bore everyone and anyone else that i have forgotten!

If you didn't make it along, you missed out, so make sure you make a note of the future social events in your diary and book your availability in!

The club held another successful Work Weekend on the 14th and 15th April with many jobs being completed. Huge thanks must go to Jamie McMahon for running the event and thanks must also go to his willing band of helpers, Johnny Ayling, Alex Wickes, Dave Lane, Andrew Murphy, Charlie Eve, Nick Tune, Ramesh Parthasarathy, Trevor Woods, Anthea Dickson, Liam Monaghan, Stephanie Edmonds, John Hargan and Paul Fortescue with special mention to the extended Hall family for sorting out the kitchen ready for next weekend. There are still a number of jobs that need doing, however, and we would like to see everyone volunteer at some stage during the year. If you are able to help out then please let Jamie McMahon know.
