Thanks to an almost superhuman effort by our groundsman, Ken Rapley and his good lady, Lesley, we managed to get some cricket on Brewery Road this weekend.

On Saturday 12th May, the 2nd XI hosted near neighbours Pyford CC. Despite the soft and difficult conditions, the game was completed and W&H posted their first victory after last season's promotion into Div 3.

After being put in, W&H struggled in the difficult conditions. Eventually all out with a few overs to spare for 125, it looked like it would be tough to defend. Jerry Day top scored with an excellent combination of aggression and patience.

The key was bowling tight and W&H did that. Pyrford's skipper was dangerous and looked like he could challenge the total, but once he went in the 20s, W&H wrapped up the match with a win by 60 runs. Pete Dunbar bowled straight and tight in taking 3, with support from James Woods and John Hargan (2 each), Zeeshan and Roger White (1 each) and an outstanding run out from Pete Day.

Thanks again to Ken, Lesley, the excellent Pyrford umpire and Jan Worgan for an outstanding tea.

On Sunday morning, the U17s hosted Guildford and won a tight match by 9 runs. Will Pyle was on fire before holing out whist in the 30s and W&H reached 108 in their 20 overs thanks to a last ball 6 from Qasim Asghar. Guildford looked good in the chase, but tight bowling by W&H restricted them to 99 in their 20 overs. A good team performance.

Don't forget to get your annual subs payment and membership form in as soon as possible. You may even get some cricket for your money if the weather eases up! As yet, we have no contingency plan for a refund if it rains every weekend of the summer...

This year we have added the option of completing your subs online. To do so please click here, or just follow the links from the Membership item in left hand menu. Please contact our Membership Secretary, Nick Tune if you need details for a bank transfer. Nick can also provide you with a paper form should you wish to do it the old fashioned way.

Just remember that all senior subscriptions paid before the end of this month will be just £95 (unaltered for the past five seasons, despite two recessions!), saving you a full £30 on the normal rate.

  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!!
