It was twenty years ago today…
 
On 26th May 2001, Morlers had possibly his finest moment in a W&H shirt taking six for six against Chertsey. 
 
This seems like a great opportunity to announce that we will be holding a James Morley Memorial T20 Match at Brewery Road on Sunday 4th July with a cast of “legends” who played a number of games with James over his lengthy career in the first eleven. Below is a list of those who have agreed to play so far.
 
We will be making further announcements as we finalise our plans over the coming weeks and we hope that many of you who knew James can make it along to the club on that day to watch the cricket, have a drink, catch up with old friends, and to celebrate his life and the wonderful guy that he was.
 
Wayne Hazell, Richard Thompson, Toby Green, Giles Green, David Gibney, Hayden Anderson, Jarrad Hubble, David French, Roger White, Ian Meyer, Adam Portlock, Ryan Pogson, Matt Lock, Liam Monaghan, Phil Strudwick, Damien Honey, Andrew Murphy, Mike Walsh, Malcolm Eddington, John Hargan and Henri Peters.
 

A small piece of club history was made on Wednesday 12th May as the Club played what is believed to be its first ever hard-ball junior girls match against Thames Ditton in the U12 age group of the Smash It Surrey League.

Having developed since U8 with softball cricket, and with no winter training possible, the last couple of weeks have seen the girls have a crash course in facing hardball, putting on pads and helmets and adapting their games under the guidance of coaches Kevin, Colin and Will.
 
The match was 16 overs, 8 a side pairs cricket with the teams starting on 200.  After captain Lizzie won the toss, a steady bowling performance saw Thames Ditton restricted to a score of 298 off their allocation, despite some strong hitting.  Special mention to Hope who's figures were 2-0-8-1 and the 7 wickets overall were shared around the bowlers.
 
After a sticky start, WHCC were behind the rate having scored 259 after 12 overs but some inspired late order batting saw us reach the final over ahead by 6 runs. Then calamity with a wicket off the first ball of the over saw the lead reduced to one run but the last pair of Alice and Jess held their nerve and the team ended with a score of 301 (net 101) to win by 3 runs.
 
It was a great occasion played in a great spirit and only a shame more spectators could not be present to witness it. This is hopefully just another step in the growth of girls' cricket at the Club.  We now have over 50 girls playing from U6 to U14 and thanks to the fantastic work put in by Kevin Silverton over many years, the section goes from strength to strength.
 
Well played girls!

We are going to be using slate app for match fees this season. Please keep an eye on your inbox / junk (spam) for a link to set up your account. If you have any issues please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Below is a quick guide on how Slate works

Players receive an email from Slate with instructions on how to download, set up the App and enter their bank details to GoCardless. It takes two minutes.

After matches, players go to the Slate App, select their name in the fixture, and pay. Simple. Please note – players have to initiate payments through Slate, rather than the club drawing money from players accounts as in a direct debit mandate

All players that leave a match receive an email reminding them they owe for the fixture. For players who haven’t paid a reminder automatically issues, with a third reminder on the following Saturday if the fee remains outstanding.

Whilst we made good progress with completing various jobs over the Easter weekend, thanks to all of you that attended, there are still several tasks that need to be done next weekend (Sat 10th and Sun 11th April) before we start playing cricket out on the square the following weekend. 

We will be running two more Work Days this Saturday and Sunday, starting at 10.00, to finish off the excellent work already started. 

We hope that many of you can make it again. We particularly need help with painting and gardening jobs.
