  • SEASON REVIEW – ANDY MALLIFF
    • We avoided relegation despite finishing bottom of Division 1 due to league restructuring. So we’re still in Division 1 in 2020 !!
    • We won 4 games which was more than the 2 teams that finished above us – but conceding 4 games due to insufficient players really took its toll.
    • New players (particularly Hari and Vignesh) have made excellent contributions.
    • BATTING – we had 8 players who scored 100+ runs in the season which is a very good statistic
    • BOWLING – this has been disappointing with only Siva with 15 wickets getting into double figures.
    • Thanks to the committee for a lot of hard work behind the scenes
    • Special thanks to Rupe for his amazing work in keeping the club finances in great shape.
    • NEXT SEASON – we have potentially 15 new players from Wintech who currently play for West Reading but are looking to join us. Plus, some Ibis Mapledurham players, so there is a real possibility of running 2 teams next season. This will bring its own problems in terms of pitch availability but that’s a good problem to have.
    • Kids cricket to be launched next season linking up with Waltham St Lawrence Primary school.
  • FINANCE REPORT – RUPE PATEL
    • Please read the separate Financial report
    • HIGHLIGHTS – external hiring of the ground to Binfield CC and Badshah Bajjar provided income of £2600
    • Quiz Night profit £917 – a big success
    • DISAPPOINTMENTS – Bar receipts down. Winter nets made a large loss.
