Windsor CC Newsletter Spring 2005 (Abridged version)

Windsor Cricket Club: 10 not out….
The eleventh annual general meeting marked the ten year anniversary of the formation of Windsor Cricket Club.
The club, formed out of the amalgamation of Windsor Victoria and Windsor and Eton cricket clubs, has gone from strength to strength in this time. With the first team in the Thames Valley League 1st Division
With this in mind, club chairman Craig Kitching took the opportunity to congratulate the membership and committee for helping to build such a strong club. He also made it clear that Windsor CC is now a club alone, the amalgamation is a distant memory.
Financially the club is strong, with the opening of the club in the winter a relative success. This needs to be built on going forward with improved attendance of the social events (see
Social for more news)
As the club has grown, the success has come along. The back to back promotions of the 1st XI. The near misses of the 2nd XI and the recent success of the 4th XI bears the fruit of a strong club.
With this in mind he highlighted the way forward for the club lies strongly with developing the youth. Making sure the next generation of Windsor cricketer is help to develop by the current senior members of the club.
This will continue to be the theme in the 2005 season as the club celebrates the 10 year anniversary. We are planning a number of events for the celebration so look out for news in the next edition of the newsletter and on club notice boards.
Good luck and enjoy the season.—WCC Committee

The Danger Zone – “There ain’t no motion in the ocean baby!”
A new section for the 2005 season is to be “The Danger Zone”. This will be Windsor’s South African overseas player’s thoughts and aims for the 2005 season.
For the first edition, I thought it best we review Danger’s first season with Windsor CC. The highs and lows, the triumphs and tribulations alongside the week to week activities of his freshman year.
On the field it was hard to ever question as to whether he was playing or not. A live wire whether batting or fielding, his impact was felt from the very first weekend as he blasted in at his new team mates in the sub-zero temps of the inter-club game.
In terms of match performances, he raised the bar for commitment. Whether it be pulling off spectacular catches, amazing run outs, ripping out a batsmen off-pole or trying to hit the ball to Datchet from C1, Justin gave it all and then some.
Something Justin also brought to Windsor CC was his unique ability to name every bat he used. Whether it be Kelly or Mary, they would get a severe talking to, if they’d let him down. Who will be his beloved this season?
The end of the game is just the start of the fun for Justin. Whether it be him fighting it out with Ramone Mohindru for the title of “The Best Dancer in the Club” or meeting and greeting Windsor’s ladies, Justin is always on his game.
So look out for the next edition of “The Danger Zone” as Justin shares his feelings about the season with his fellow members.

Windsor cleans up with Sanex
We are pleased to announce the great news that Sanex have become Windsor Cricket Clubs new sponsorship partner for 2005.
The deal, which comes into affect for the new season involves their logo appearing on the new kit and a large banner for the side of the pavilion. Also a pledge for £500.
To further assist the club, Sanex will be installing special sanitary dispensers in the showers and wash rooms at the club. It will save the need for the obligatory shower gel search after the game.
Potential further events involving Sanex may occur at the club during the coming season. With Sara Lee (the parent company) playing their cricket at Windsor, the scope is there for a lot more.
