SAMPFORDS CRICKET CLUB
What a fantastic year 2011 was! Those present at the under 12’s Hugh Craig Invitation Cup final at Bardfield will never forget the way we totally outplayed Dunmow, and remained unbeaten in all league games. However another year of cricket is here and we hope to continue the great improvement the Club has seen over the last few years into 2012.
Our coaching sessions will commence on Saturday 21st April, and we will have coaching sessions every Saturday morning until 28th July, except when matches have been arranged on those days. Additional coaching sessions and matches might be arranged during August. Please note that all coaching sessions will commence at 10.00am and finish at 11.30am.
Drinks will be provided at all coaching days.
Members are also invited to use the practise nets as often
as possible. Membership
The forms will be handed out at the training sessions or
delivered where necessary. Please ensure
that all forms and subscriptions are returned to the club by 1st
June. This year we have maintained our subscription fees at £10. Any player who has not paid their
subscriptions by that date will not be eligible to play for the club until
paid. Hugh Craig Colts

This year our club is entering the under 15’s (year 10) team into the league. Details of the matches are attached and are also listed on our website. The first match is away to Thaxted on Thursday 1th May. Please note that all matches are planned to start at 6.00pm so we ask that all chosen players are at the match venue by 5.30pm. In the event of any games being cancelled the coaches will contact the players or their parents as soon as possible using the information given on the application forms.
This year we will play many of our under 13’s players and they will have to play against teams with players who are a year or two older. I know that we will give any team a good game and they will not find it easy playing Sampfords.
One to One Coaching
We have three ECB level 1 coaches in the club. We are very fortunate to have Gary Kidd as
our coach as he has a level 2 cricket coaching qualification, an enhanced CRB
check, and is also a personal trainer.
Gary is therefore able to offer one to one coaching to junior players
and any interested members should contact him on 01799 586576. Anyone interested in personal training should
also contact him directly.
Match Day Teas
Match Day Teas
We are very grateful to all the mothers who made all the cakes and sandwiches, not to mention the half time oranges, for the match days last year. However we felt that it was fairer if the cost of the food was covered by match fees. This year therefore we are charging match fees of £2 to anyone who plays in Bardfield League matches. Players should ensure that they have the fees with them on the day.
We would like all players to play in club shirts and I would be grateful if anyone wishing to buy a shirt would contact me with the size required. The price is still being negotiated but will be about £19.
We hope that all of you will have a great summer of cricket. Contact Numbers
