Senior nets - 1st team skipper Jack Kliber has organized a net on Mondays at Writtle, 9 to 10pm, starting on Jan 20th. Likely to feature some of the clubs stronger cricketers. Text Jack on 07837 968326 if you are interested in attending.
If netting with 1st and 2nd teamers does not appeal then we also have a net at Writtle on Sundays from 5 to 6pm. This features some 3rd, 4th and 5th teamers as well as some U16s. Spaces are strictly limited so please email david.castell@thomsonreuters.com
And a 3rd option is a net on Fridays from 9 to 10pm, also at Writtle. This contains a mix of folks from Shenfield, Harold Wood, Brookweald and East Hanningfield. A rehydration in the pub after this one is not compulsory, but is strongly encouraged. Again, contact david.castell@thomsonreuters.com if you are interested in this.
17th January 2014
Colts/Foals winter training - Training for U6/U7s starts on Friday Feb 28th at the St Martins Sports Hall, 6 to 7pm. Only 2 places remain for this popular 5 week course. There was insufficient demand for a full course for U8/U9s but we are looking at options. Watch this space.
U10 to U13 nets are running on a Sunday from 4 to 5pm at Writtle. U14/15 nets follow from 5 to 6pm. A small number of spaces remain on a few dates.
See senior nets for U16s and above.
Contact david.castell@thomsonreuters.com if you are interested.
