Joshua v Klitschko at the cricket club

Saturday night's big boxing match will be screened at the cricket club.

There will be a private function in the function rooms displaying the evening's boxing via a projector, as a result it will also be available to watch on the large screen television in the bar area at a cost of £3 a head. Bar meals will be available from Tracy and Dion's bar meal menu.

The main fight is expected to be at about 10.00pm, cricketers will probably be starting to watch the action as they return from playing in games.


Match Report U13 Fixture v Wolviston

The match was reduced to 18 overs a side but abandoned due to heavy sleet after 14 overs of the second innings.

Richmondshire batted first, extras did not have to retire and scored 50, Ben Dale scored 27, Angus Potter 20 and Kai York 18 not out, to give a Richmondshire score of 143 for 5.

For Wolvistion the two openers retired on passing 30, they were on 99 for the loss of one wicket when play was abandoned. Though it is unlikely their lower order would have scored 45 runs in four overs to win the match, Duckworth-Lewis does not apply and league rules are that the match should be replayed if possible.

After a narrow defeat last Sunday let’s hope we can bounce back with a win this weekend !

We lost by 23 runs but conceded 31 extras … ouch, my fault, poor warm up and lack of guidance from the scorers chair! Great knock by Kai (30 rtd) and Angus (20), and 2 wickets each for Kai, Toby, Patrick and one for Joe

Practice nets are ready for use

All four lanes are ready for use, with stumps in place and significant holes in the netting repaired.

If using a hard ball in the nets, please remember juniors must wear a helmet for both keeping and batting.

As the matting is slow to dry, it is highly advisable not to use a nice new bat or ball as they will pick up moisture from the matting and become damaged.

There is a rubbish bin tied to the advertising hoardings, rubbish is to be put in the bin not left in the nets.

If anything gets stuck on the top of the nets, do not climb up the nets to try and get it down. Tip: there is a long metal bar that fixes across the entrance to the mobile net, this can be useful for poking from below.

Club Extraordinary General Meeting 30th March 2017

There will be an Extraordinary General Meeting at the clubhouse at 8.30 pm on 30th March.
This is to discuss and hopefully agree changes to the constitution that are proposed to ensure compliance with HMRC rules which require Community Amateur Sports Clubs to have at least 50% of their membership participating in the sport the club offers. Participating includes playing, coaching, managing teams, umpiring, scoring, working on the ground and committee work.
Community Amateur Sports Club status is worth keeping because it reduces the club's rates bills and allows Gift Aid to be claimed on donations.
Only adult members (including those parents that are currently social or non-playing members) can vote, but we need as many as possible to turn out.

ECB All Stars Cricket initiative launched today 20th March

The ECB is introducing "All Stars Cricket", an initiative to introduce cricket to 5 to 8 year olds who have no previous experience of the game. The marketing has started today.

All Stars Cricket will be available at Richmondshire Cricket Club. Both paid-up junior members of the appropriate age and non-members who have registered centrally with the All Stars programme will be able to take part in these sessions.

Members and non-members who register centrally with the All Stars programme will receive delivered to their home various items of kit, including a plastic bat, cap, shirt with their name on it, drinks bottle and rucksack. This will cost £40 and is not paid to the club.

Non-members who have paid £40 to join the All Stars scheme will only be entitled to attend the specific All Stars sessions. To receive other benefits, they will need to become members of the cricket club.
