An offer from St James CC to like minded Cricketers and Clubs
Have you noticed the significant changes taking place in club cricket that have been happening over the last decade or so? The ones that have been affecting the single team clubs in particular; like the bigger clubs have been getting bigger and the smaller ones have been getting smaller or even folding and that there have become fewer available grounds. Particularly in and around the London area the pitches are getting less and the quality poorer. So what is to be done?
St James CC play primarily Saturday matches and will be 36 years old come the new season. We are determined to see if we, along with others, can come up with a different kind of plan for the next decade.
Our ethos has been to play enjoyable but competitive matches and to encourage mixed ability players. Founded with a church background there has always been the sense of fair play and pursuing excellence. The spinoff has been there has never been a shortage of oppositions wanting to play against us; although we do lose some, year on year to league competitions.
Based in Wandsworth with a ground that has availability throughout the summer, we would like to create a CRICKET PARTNERSHIP to allow us to compete with the ‘bigger boys’. We would like to join with other like minded clubs or those looking to start one, who bring something a little different from our strengths. For instance are colts your interest or are you a ladies team without a ground or just a team that likes to get involved in coaching? Whatever your passions let’s see if say three groups of us can create a partnership that is both attractive and attracts newcomers and also some of that funding that is out there. Synergy says that together we can create more than the individual parts.
So if you would like to take this further please act promptly and email to email@example.com
