JUNIOR COLTS CRICKET
As we enter the second half of the term and the colts cricket season, I would like to take the opportunity to welcome all our new junior colts and their families to Frimley CC, and update those of you who have been here a while now.
Friday night training is going from strength to strength with some 30 - 40 children attending the 6 - 8 year old sessions. With 4 / 5 qualified level 2 coaches assigned to this group I hope your child is progressing and enjoying themselves. However as a family orientated club we are always looking for volunteers to become 'parent helpers' and then maybe coaches themselves, which the club will pay. If any one is interested in getting involved please make yourself known to one of our coaches.
Some of you may have been asked for your child's availability to play matches in the U9 local league, and for those of you who have played, matches are a fun, competitive way to progress.
We have entered two U9 leagues, with some 18 matches arranged through the season. These are played as 'Pairs' cricket, with a soft ball. This means that they do not wear protective clothing and if they are out, they just loose runs and carry on batting for their 4 overs. Everyone bowls (this can be underarm) and generally has a go. It is the policy at Frimley CC to give every colt the chance of at least 1 or 2 games of pairs cricket in a season so to this end we will be arranging a few 'interclub' friendlies at the end of term / summer holidays. If your child has not been able to play in the leagues, this is their chance to experience a match situation.
If you have any concerns regarding your time at Frimley CC please feel free to contact me, (01276 505969, firstname.lastname@example.org), Helen Fryer - Colts Secretary (email@example.com), Sharon Watson - Welfare Officer or any official at the club. Further information can be found in the clubhouse or in the 2013 handbook, available free to members from behind the bar.
Finally we are keen to develop a thriving colts section at the club, so if you know of any youngster interested in cricket, please bring them along or get their parents to contact myself or Helen.

As we enter the second half of this term we thought it would be usefull to update you.
Winter training is continuing untill the 24th March with the last two sessions being hard ball in the nets to get you back in the swing of proper cricket. We have plenty of capacity so feel free to come for any sessions from now untill the end .. obviously if you haven't already paid there is a £5 charge per session. It would be good to see you there.
Saturday 9th March is the evening the 1st team get their trophy for winning the league last year and celebrate thier success .. you are all welcome so why not come down to the clubhouse for a drink.
Cricket Force is the weekend of the 5th - 7th April, where we do some chores around the ground and clubhouse in preparation for the new season. Last year there were free bacon sandwiches and tea/ coffee. Also the Bar will be open. Please try to join us for an hour or two.
Friday 19th April is when we have our first official outdoor training session with registration and and hopefully a BBQ. I may have an earlier get together as some of us have our first game on the 28th April. On that note, if you visit the Frimley cc play-cricket website it will have all the fixtures on there ... some will change as we finalise the dates so keep checking.
Lastly we would like to update you on the 'perminent nets' project Frimley CC has started. Planning permission has been granted and some funding secured, however we were turned down by our major funding hopefuls. Therefore we are looking to get numerous small donations/ funds to make up the shortfall (circa £15K). Is there any one who has experience in approaching companies etc for donations amongst us willing to take this on and help us realise this vision of improved facilities? It is you / your children who will benefit from this and unfortunately the committee has too much to do already, to give this its due attention.
Thats all folks!
