****NET REPLACEMENT *********
WE NEED LOTS MORE COMMENTS. IN ORDER TO ACCOMPLISH THIS THE FUNDING BODY HAS AGREED TO EXTEND THE TIME PERIOD FOR EVERYONE TO HAVE THEIR SAY.
DON’T DELAY – DO IT NOW.
Net Replacement….. Shortlisted for Funding.
As you know our nets are desperately in need of replacement. The structure is unstable and the wickets play poorly. With the growing popularity of the club especially amongst young people and their families, safety has become a prime consideration. The only solution is to totally replace the nets with new playing surfaces and a completely enclosed cage. The cost is over £40,000 plus VAT but what an asset it would be for the club now and in the future.
Following our initial application to the Your Fund Surrey we are delighted to let you know that we have been shortlisted for funding. Everybody was invited to support the project and post their comments. This is now closed but you can still see details of the project and people’s comments here:
Thanks to those who responded. If you haven’t please do it NOW.
…… 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. We have a new pavilion which provides the club with fantastic 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.
In 2021 we will be running two Saturdays sides in the Fuller’s Brewery Surrey County League. In 2019 ( our last full season) the 1st XI came third and the 2nd XI came fifth in their respective divisions.
We have entered a team under the name of Newdigate Earthquakes in the Surrey T20 Slam competition. These are popular matches played during weekday evenings. They are always well supported.
As an alternative to league matches our Sunday side/s play traditional friendly matches and our midweek team play twenty over friendlies throughout the summer on Wednesday evenings.
Our ladies, known as the Newdigate Ninjas, are playing in the Surrey T20 Slam. See calendar for fixtures and contact Karen Fordree (firstname.lastname@example.org ) for more information.

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”.
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!
