At the AGM last October the Marshall Hatchick Two Counties Championship agreed to organise an introduction to scoring course.

Many Clubs do no have scorers and rely on the players to do the honours. Last season there were many errors in reported scores and the lack of scorers is a real concern.

The courses are being funded by the Two Counties and clubs are urged to take advantage of this offer and train those players who invariably end up with the scorebook. You never know you might even find a regular scorer.

The details of the courses are as follows:-

WED 18th MARCH at Bury St Edmunds C.C. 7p.m. prompt.
MON 30th MARCH at East Bergholt C.C. 7p.m. prompt

Anyone interested needs to speak to Norman before the 9 March to ensure that we can get a place on one of the courses.

This years AGM was held on the 11 November 2014.

Norman reported that despite a number of years struggling with the management of Ransomes Sports & Social Club and also a long standing battle with our landlords Ipswich Borough Council over leases etc, 2014 may turn out to be a landmark year in St Margaret's history. 


As most of you know, we took over the preparation of the square, whilst IBC provided new changing facilities and showers.   On the day before the AGM, contractors had also started the demolition of the old pavillion, which is to be replaced in the coming months (although it is not likely to be up and running until the end of the next cricket season at the earliest).

Finances were in the main good, despite the added pressures associated to the preparation of the square.  

In respect to the teams for next season a number of changes were voted in.

1st XI Captain will be Joey Butler, with Jordan Beaumont as Vice Captain.

2nd XI Captain was left open, but with the intention of asking Bryn Wilkinson to step into the role, supported by Bradley Aldous as Vice Captain.

The Sunday XI saw Jordan being voted in as captain, with Nathan Oakley as Vice captain.   

The other big change being a vote to return to the Suffolk Cricket Alliance after 2 years in the North Essex Cricket league.  The main reason for the return being shorter travelling times to away matches.
