Colt and Junior Teams 2018:
We are pleased to announce that due to popular demand our junior training sessions with professional coaches will continue in 2018. This is part of the redevelopment of the cricket club and we have had a fantastic response for our professional coaching sessions with the Junior side but there is still room for more boys and girls. Training sessions to play Kwick Cricket are on Thursday evenings, at the cricket ground on Bull Green, starting at 6.30pm until 8.30pm for up to twelve weeks. We have purchased all the necessary equipment so all the children have to bring is suitable clothing for training and a drink. Please click on the following BCC Junior Cricket Letter for further information.
Past success! Since last year a number a number of events have taken place to raise money for the redevelopment of the cricket club, including quizzes, skittles night and even a murder mystery! In addition, the regular Winter 2015/Spring 2016 George Quiz Nights accrued £355 for the Bethersden Cricket Club coffers. Over £1,500 has now been raised and the effort will continue throughout 2017.
Special Thank You’s! The club would like to thank Caroline Buckley for all her hard work in organising a successful fund raising event at London Beach golf Club in July 2016. Also to Croline Buckley and Lin Hillyard, whose assistance during the winter quiz nights at the George Pub was greatly appreciated.
The club would like to thank Colin Miles of Colin Miles Signs from Bethersden for his generosity in supplying the new signs at Bull Green.
