Ransomes


Despite the continued uncertainty of the facilities at Ransomes, we are pleased to announce that the winter work was undertaken on the square, which should ensure a better playing surface than we had in 2013.


We have also been assured that new changing facilities will be in place before the start of the season, which should mean both sides being able to have a hot shower after the game!


One area that has year to be confirmed and that is the situation with the bar, it looks at the moment that there will not be any bar facilities in the short term.


Fixtures for the coming season have also been released, the Sunday XI are the first to play with an trip to the seaside(?) and a match against Harwich & Dovercourt on 13th April. The 1st XI also start there season with a trip to the seaside – this time Clacton 2nd XI being the opponents on 19th April. Finally, the 2nd XI will play hosts to a local derby against DBSL a week later on 26th April.

ECB NatWest CricketForce April 2014

Last year a number of volunteers undertook various tasks as part of the ECB NatWest CricketForce day. We managed to repair and paint the sightscreens and scorebox; remove the weeds from the net carpets; repair the practice nets themselves and have a general tidy up in the container.

We will be holding a similar day this on 12th April, so please try to make yourself available - further details will be advised of as soon as possible.


Club Kit

Full details can be found in the Online catalogue

Match wear, training wear and off-field clothing can now be purchased on an item-by-item basis by each individual club member, removing the need for SMCC to purchase gear in bulk.  A full range of clothing is available to everyone and I would like to encourage as many members as possible to start purchasing items as soon as possible.
