THIEVES are still targeting players' possessions at cricket clubs, so be very careful - Two clubs were broken into yesterday, one of them being Billericay, for the second time this season. Previously, at least 6 clubs that we know of have suffered. Wallets, phones and house/car keys have been stolen. The League published a warning about this man, so keep an eye out for him, but, of course, he may not be the only miscreant. A couple with a young child were suspected after items went missing from one club.
