Match Reports (updated 29/4/18)

Colette Deamer is our Press Officer. Please send all match reports to her on and copy them to David Razzell for Social Media and Alison for the website on . If possible, submit your reports by Tuesday so that we can try to catch the press!

The template for completing reports is available HERE

The template isn't meant to be a straitjacket but to help you share the right information. If you can submit them as quickly as possible, we will do our best to get them to the local papers! Ideally for the Walden Local we need them by 5:00pm on Sunday. Completing them soon after the match may also help when it comes to drawing together information for your end of season report.

Finally, don't make the report too long - either you won't get it published or the wrong bits will be cut out.

The Managers' Handbook is available HERE (word doc) or HERE (pdf file). All managers are required to read this, please. A revised version will be available soon, but most of this is still useful.

You should note there have been quite a few changes since the last edition:

- gate access to County High (what happens Sunday mornings / midweek evenings when no Cinema).

- updated ECB helmet guidance

- updated ECB fast bowling restrictions

- added in groundsmen contact numbers & requirements (e.g. bowlers markers etc)

- updated SWCHS pavilion instructions 

- highlighted key phone numbers & e-mail addresses

Re access to SWCHS, Michele and Glyn are happy to act as keyholder so you can pick up, unlock, lock up and drop off the keys as needed. Michele is happy to train people on the locking and unlocking of the Pavilion. Please ring Michele to arrange this.

Please try and re-arrange cancelled games.  Have a look at the latest Fixture Planner and email Dave Hancock with suggested date(s). He will then confirm which date(s) are still available and reserve a date so you can get back to the opposition. Please copy Dave in on all attempts to re-arrange games so we can monitor which oppositions are most "awkward". If necessary we can involve the respective Boards.

Also, please note at the end of matches all plastic chairs are to be stacked in the Pavilion not the Clubhouse.

Age Groups 2019 - this may help avoid arguments! It is club policy that children play in their age groups. This prevents too many players being moved up into higher age groups, which weakens the younger group and results in the weaker players in the higher groups not being developed properly. Obviously there has to be the possibility of flexibility, especially in the older squads, but this must be based on the decision of the coach, not the parents.

Guidance on use of nets - please read this to make sure you are using the nets safely!
