Thanks to all those who attended the indoor winter nets. The feeling was they were well attended and some good work has been done to prepare.
We are now moving outside to make use of the nets we provided.
Same times on Sundays
seniors 12 -2
U15/U13 2-3
U11/U9 3-4

We are looking forward to the 2014 season with anticipation - we have already signed up a couple of Overseas Players plus the Juniors go into the season full strength at all age groups.

Unbelievably for a club of Walshaw’s stature, there isn’t really an old boys section or any planned activities so we are looking at starting the ball rolling and introducing a few idea’s that will hopefully get ex players and members to re connect to the club and the section. We would welcome any individuals who wanted to get back involved with coaching or organising but more importantly it will be great just to see a few more “old” faces down at the club having a pint and watching the cricket

Brief update as we start the count down to the 2014 season. 

It will be a pivotal year as the B&DCA enters an transitional season before splitting into 2 divisions for 2015, so where we finish in 2014 will determine if we enter the top or bottom division.
We fully anticipate being in the top division.

The 1st team finished reasonably well and again secured a place in the Lancs Knockout despite a couple of injuries to key players. The junior set up is still strong especially at the younger age groups with the U11’s being the pick winning the treble of league, cup and divisional play off.

Dates for your Diary   

Old Boys Reunion Day – Saturday May 10th Walshaw 1st v Elton 1st

People who attended the Old boys T20 game said how good it was to come back to the club, have a drink and watch some cricket and how they should do it more often. So here’s your opportunity, and what better game to watch than against or nearest rivals Elton. All come down, food available, bar open and watch some cricket whilst catching up and remembering all those tales and seeing how you compare to the current crop.

Will update with some more dates as they get confirmed.

Kind Regards

DG Leach

Cricket Chairman

RT @stick1982: Better performance in terms of scoring with the bat but bowling and fielding must improve. Well done to Bury District U11's …
