New South Weald CC Season Announcement 2021
New South Weald CC Season Announcement 2021 - Posted 5th April
With the season now less than two weeks away, it's almost time to start thinking about playing some cricket!
As every season though, there are jobs to do around the ground to make sure we are fully ready and there is a planned work party on the 10th April.
There are also several announcements for club members to be aware of ahead of the 2021 season.
Please see the below updates.
Nets will officially start from Wednesday 7th April. This will of course be subject to the weather and COVID Guidelines (see full details at bottom of page). As per usual, nets will be on the back-pitch until the end of April where we can start using the main pitch.
The club plans to use 'Doodle' for availability in the 2021 season as this proved a success last year. More details will follow later in the week.
Our first pre-season game is on Saturday 17th April which is a home game against Abridge.
There is currently no game planned for the 18th, but if we cannot find any opposition then the club will look to arrange an inter-club T20 friendly.

For the first time in 16 years, the club will be competing in the national village cup. See the full article here.

New Car Park
For those who might not have been able to get up the club this year. South Weald has a new car park, you can find the article here.
The club will be looking to acquire a new mower to replace the existing machinery in the 2021 season. Following the recent successful crowdfunder, and getting an additional grant in, the search has already begun with an aim to have something sorted by May.
The club is still actively looking for new sponsors ahead of the 2021 season. If you know any local businesses that you think might benefit from the exposure we offer then please get in contact via our email address firstname.lastname@example.org and we can send over our full sponsorship opportunity pack.
