Sunday Cricket 2019
Following on from the discussions at the AGM, we have now received the proposals for Sunday Alliance Cricket next season.
There are two options on the table, 30 Over matches, with some restrictions on batters & bowlers or 40 Over matches with traditional rules.
We need to hear your thoughts on whether you want to play Sundays and then what format you would prefer.
We need to receive these comments before the 24 November to give us time to enter a side if need be.
Please note, we will also require someone to captain and pick the sides!
Full details of competitions can be found here:

Club Day Cancelled
Unfortunately, due to a lack of confirmed attendees for Sunday's Club Day, we have taken the decision to cancel this years event.
I can only apologise to the small number of members who did commit to coming along, but without a sufficient numbers it would have made life very difficult to organise meaningful games.
Despite the day being on the fixture card and being advertised on both our website and Facebook pages, it seems some people did not know that the day was planned - perhaps this is something I and the committee need to look at for next time.
Hopefully, we can organise something in the future, probably next year now, as in previous years when the weather has been good to us, the days have been very successful on all fronts including adding money to the club funds.
Women's soft ball cricket
Thanks to all the ladies and girls who came along to our Women's Soft Ball cricket evening.
Hope you appreciated the good weather we arranged especially and that you all enjoyed the night and didn't ache to much in the morning.
Following the recent bad weather, please find links to the guidance on when the pitch is deemed to be "Fit for Play"

Welcome to the St Margaret's Cricket Club website.
