Cricket Arrangements Week 1

Posted on by Geoff Kieswetter

Dear Cricketers

Welcome back – and best wishes for 2013! Hope it’s a great year for all of us. It will certainly be an exciting year, what with the Coutts-Trotter Indoor Centre making fine progress! ALL cricketers will be afforded the opportunity to be coached in the centre and make use of the PitchVision technology that will be installed and saved to the internet. The centre will have four lanes: 1 x bowling-machine lane, 1 x PitchVision lane and 2 x conventional lanes, each with a video camera and TV screens for playback… and an upstairs viewing area and seminar room. More about that in a month or so’s time.

There are matches for the following teams this Saturday (19 January):

1st XI – away;   2nd XI – home;   U17A – home;   U15A – home;   U15B – away;   U14A – away;   U14B – home

Some of the coaches of other sides MAY hold trials on Saturday morning.

Please note that from this year, seniors and juniors will practise on different days, i.e. seniors on Mondays and Wednesdays and juniors on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The following are the practice arrangements for Wednesday 16 January:

  • The 1st XI squad will practise in the turf nets;
  • Mr Steyn will put up a notice regarding the 2nd XI squad that will practise (probably with the U17A squad) in the Frank Reid nets;
  • Mr Nolte will put up a notice regarding who should attend the U17A practice;
  • All seniors not included in the squads mentioned above must report to Mr Sudding at the San Nets, where you will be divided according to numbers.
  • Please pass on these arrangements to your buddies/former team-mates/other cricketers, as not everybody may read this in time time pack kit for Wednesday.

The following are the practice arrangements for Thursday 17 January:

  • All of last year’s U14As and Bs – report to Messrs Hamman, Smith and Simpkins at the Oaks Pavilion;
  • All of last year’s U14Cs, Ds and Es report to Mr Holtman, Mthuthu Msizi and Thabo Stone on The Avenue.
  • This year’s U14s will be allocated to squads by Messrs Walsh, Richter and Russell after today’s newboy trials;
  • Please pass on these arrangements to your buddies/former team-mates/other cricketers, as not everybody may read this or check the noticeboard!

Good luck for the season!
