Eagles Win League

We are delighted to announce that the Bron Eagles have won the Chess Valley League 3rd Division, thus gaining promotion. Tommy Ricketts's men have had a very successful season and have fully deserved to come top of what has been a very competitive league. Tommy himself featured top of the individual acheivements with a 140, and other excellent contributions were provided by James Overy, Vishal Bhimjiyani, Adam Sargant, George Martin, Nick Jones and Mike Wiltshire. The Eagles is a Sunday side which helps the club provide younger cricketers with exposure to good quality limited overs cricket.

End of Season

Sat 5/9/9 Last Saturday night saw the end of season celebrations at the club. A good night saw an end to a season of rebuilding at the club, with a large number of young players representing all four league sides. The first and second teams often had an average age of in the low 20s and finished 7th and 4th in their leagues repectively, which sets a solid base for future years. The evening saw Robert Nelson presented with an award for reaching 300 first team league wickets, with the stumping of ex Middlesex all-rounder Paul Weekes by current Middlesex keeper John Simpson earlier in the season. Mike Wiltshire was also given a send off as he ends his year as second team overseas player to return to his native Auckland.
