COVID-19 VIRUS

 

Simon Hughes has written in the May 2020 issue of the Cricketer:

“Sport is a temporary deflection away from reality, an uplifting experience after a hard week at work – whether playing or watching – or an opportunity to bond with people who share a communal passion”.

Welcome

…… to the Newdigate Cricket Club web site.

We are a thriving cricket club, playing on a picturesque ground, situated on the Surrey/Sussex border, equidistant from Dorking, Reigate and Horsham. The new pavilion is now fully functioning so we have a fabulous headquarters.

This is what Surrey County Cricket club has written about us.  “Premier side Newdigate, a bastion of village cricket on the Surrey/Sussex border and relative newcomers after starting life in 1849. Playing a full part in the heart of their community, they arrived late in league cricket by joining the Surrey Downs League in 1999 and switched to the Fuller’s in 2013.”

We offer a friendly environment for cricketers of all ages and abilities. This year it had been hoped to run two Saturdays sides in the Fuller’s Brewery Surrey County League.  

In 2019 the 1st XI came third and the 2nd XI came fifth in their respective leagues.

Under normal circumstance as an alternative to league matches our Sunday side plays traditional friendly matches and our midweek team play twenty over friendlies throughout the summer on Wednesday evenings.

Our ladies  entered the winter Ladies ‘Smash-It’ League under the name of the Newdigate Ninjas….. they reached the finals which was scheduled to be played on the 29th March. Unfortunately it has been cancelled but hopefully will be rescheduled when the current health scare is over. See calendar for fixtures and contact Karen Fordree (kfordree@outlook.com ) for more information.

Our girls and boys (5-14 years of age) usually meet on Friday evenings at 6.00 pm for coaching.  We hope to hold a fun-filled Summer Camp from the 10th – 14th August but we will have to follow Government guidelines. Go to junior section for more information. Once again we signed up to ALL STARS CRICKET which has proved to be a great success nationally. Unfortunately the scheme has been suspended. In 2019,  2212 clubs participated and 67,000 children attended!

More details at:  https://www.ecb.co.uk/play/all-stars

In 2020 we would have been witnessing some changes as all competitive junior cricket in the county was scheduled to have been united under the Surrey Junior Cricket Championship.  We entered teams at under 9, 10, 11, 13 and 14 levels. Provisional fixtures were published – see calendar.  For more information go to: https://surreyjuniorchampionship.play-cricket.com/Aboutus

ALSO NEW FOR 2020 or so we hoped – We entered an U13 side in the winter  indoor Identilam 6-a-Side competition which was  played at Tanbridge House School. Unfortunately the last session had to be cancelled.

We also signed up for the new ECB initiative called Dynamos Cricket. It is for 8-11 year olds. Sessions were scheduled to start at Newdigate on the 15th May 2020 but have been suspended.

We believe in running a club which is open and equable to everyone and have been awarded the ECB Clubmark FOCUS Accreditation in recognition of this achievement.

If you think that this is your kind of club then please contact us

IMPORTANT – STROKES, BLOOD CLOTS ETC.

This is for everyone. If somebody stumbles unaccountably they may have had a stroke. Ask them to smile, to say a simple sentence or raise both arms. Also ask them to stick out their tongue and check if it is crooked. If they cannot do any of these simple things call the emergency service (details on the notice board on the balcony) as they may have had a stroke. Time is of the essence you might just save a life!

We are still fund raising

Are you buying anything on line?

Then register with easyfundraising.org.uk and follow the simple instructions. For every purchase a percentage will go to the club without costing you a penny. Many major retailers such as Amazon, John Lewis, M & S, Argos, Domino’s Pizza etc. are in the scheme so join up and support your club.
