Come on, Bredon!

We remain the only unbeaten side in the Evesham Indoor League.

In our latest match Harvington (65 all out) lost to Bredon (67-0) with 4.4 overs remaining.

The left-arm bowling in-swinging to the right-hander of Steve Bridges was decisive, reducing Harvington to 37-3 after six overs.

His return of 3-16 is the best in any Worcester League this season so far.

Although Simon Ricketts (14) and George Burford (13) stuck around to add some respectability to the total, all was lost in the final over with two wickets in two balls.

Dominic Fenney ended with 2 for 8 and Jamie Munro enjoyed a couple of stumpings.

Next match: Bredon v Pershore, February 16, 8pm.

We don’t need Superman, but we do need you!

We don’t need Superman to get the club ready for the new season… but we do need you!

There is plenty of work to do, but many hands make light work. That is why we have our ECB CricketForce Day 2016 at 10am on Sunday, April 3.

We welcome club members, as well as our neighbours in the community who would like to lend a hand.

We have a variety of jobs that need doing, and we won’t ask anyone to tackle anything they are not entirely comfortable doing.

If anyone has any ideas for the clubhouse, such as a new colour scheme or anything else that will enhance our great ground, then let me know, otherwise please use the form below to confirm your attendance as soon as possible so I can allocate people to each job required.

Finally, there will be bacon rolls and refreshments. See you all there!

New season, new faces

After a successful annual meeting, which was held late last year and was well attended by our members, Bredon Cricket Club is actively planning for the new cricket season.

Sadly, we have lost the services of Ric and Sally New, who have been extremely hard working stalwarts of the club over many years.

However, a new committee, led by new chairman Neil Hall, has already met twice and both meetings were very positive.

Plans are in place to lead Bredon Cricket Club into a new season.
