Thank you

A big thank you to everyone – Boycie, Peter, Dave and Jamie Monk, Big Dave, Phippsy, Martin, Will, Chris and Alan – who came along to the ground on Saturday morning to prepare the square, tidy the ground and clubhouse and to prepare for the coming season.  Our club depends on the commitment of the people who put in the work and time to prepare and maintain the facilities.

Although the square is looking in good condition, the outfield is waterlogged as a result of all of the rain over the past few weeks. Because of this we have, unfortunately, been forced to cancel the match tomnorrow

In preparation for the new cricket season, there will be a work party to tidy and repair the ground and club house. The square and outfield are looking good, and there is a new kitchen in the clubhouse. However, there is a lot of work to be done in trimming hedges, cleaning the clubhouse and toilets, and tidying the ground. With a good turn out we can get the work done quickly, and discuss the results over a beer in The Boot.

Date:      Saturday 14th April

Start:      10 am

Finish:    1 pm (hopefully)

Please bring work gloves, safety equipment and useful tools. Tea and cakes would also be appreciated! We hope to see as many there as possible.

Winter nets

The first of 10 indoor nets sessions took place last Saturday morning. It was a lively session attended by Beardo, Cupcake, Ashley, Phippsy, Badger, George and Jamie (Monk). All are welcome, the more the merrier – we virtually had the whole place to ourselves. We would particularly encourage new prospective players to join us; it’s informal and just a loosener for before the season starts.

For those who haven’t been before, the session is 9:30 to 11:00 a.m.

Address: Tharbies Farm, Rook End, High Wych, Sawbridgeworth CM21 0LL

Players

Good to hear from Saif, Ahsin and Murtaza on the whatsapp group … hope to see you guys with bat/ball in hand.

As ever we are hoping to recruit new players so anyone reading this who is interested in joining LMCC should leave contact details in a comment below and we will be in touch.

Whatsapp Group

Everyone who has a modern phone with a screen larger than a postage stamp is welcome to join the ‘Little Munden Gladiators’ whatsapp group. Unfortunately there some key personnel who are luddites … sorry …. who don’t have the technology, so this website will be the main vehicle for spreading club news. Please visit here regularly for updates rather than complain  that no-one told you 🙂

 

The Little Munden Cricket Club Awards Evening was held at The Boot in Dane End on 10th November. It proved an enjoyable eveing for club members and the many supporters in the village. John and Bev Burlison organised a Race Night to add to the entertainment and raise funds for the club. The award winners included John Boyce (Bowling), Dave Beardsley (Player of the Year), Chris Jones (Clubman of the Year), Saif (Catcher) and, most importantly, Ahmed for the Champagne moment for his master stroke in bowling when he took 6 wickets for 26 runs and less importantly his Duck Cup for which there were few contenders but no one came forward. The Race Night raised an estimated £260 for the club, and we would like to thank everyone who joined in and helped to fund the club’s future.

A special thanks to everyone at The Boot who supported this evening.

Put it in your diaries …..

Last year’s Race Night was a great success thanks in no small part to the generosity of the good folks of Dane End.

We hope to repeat the process again this year. Bring as many friends and family as you wish … the more the merrier!
