By May 6, 2009January 13th, 2012No Comments

Saturday 9th May sees a big day in Windsor Cricket Club recent history as we look to field 5 teams in the Thames Valley Cricket League. Sarab Oberoi will lead his all-new 5th team out onto the field of Division 9 battle as the expansion of the club continues.

In the first eleven, Wes Nichols enters his second season in charge full of expectation for his young side. With a balance of experience and youth, the premier Windsor side possesses a fine balanced look with Nichols enjoying many different bowling options and an attacking batting line-up. Coupled with this is the fact that the team is arguably the best fielding side in the division. This blend will see Windsor entering its fourth consecutive campaign in Division 2A playing against local rivals of Datchet and Burnham 2’s.

The second eleven has a new captain in Brian Davis, who hopes to make use of his experience to help guide the side towards a return to Division 3.The aim will be about getting the most out of the senior players within the core of the team whilst looking to develop the games of club’s talented youth core.

The third and fourth elevens will also continue to help develop the club in similar vein. The third team will start the season in level 6, after gaining promotion last season through the success of the 4th team. With the side containing a wealth of experience, a lot is expected of the 3rd XI and it is hoped that the recent addition of new seamers will help provide captain Richard Noble with a balance bowling attack to support the strong batting. Andrew Doree’s 4th team will look to repeat the feat of 2008 and aim to win their division once again. After convincingly winning their league in 2008, league rules saw them remain in the same division whilst the third team enjoyed their promotion. The aim here will be repeating last year’s feat.

The Windsor Cricket Club colts section continues to enjoy great success and is expanding every season. The testament to this is the volume of young cricketers (under 9 years old) who train on a Saturday morning. Many of those youngsters looking to emulate their senior counterparts in the future and play in league cricket on a Saturday afternoon. On the whole the club runs sides from age 8 through to 17 and all are welcome.
