B XI withdraws from league
Regrettably, we have had to take the decision to withdraw the B XI from the Wiltshire Cricket League.
It has not been a decision taken lightly – we have run 4 teams since 2005, and it has previously proved a good way to introduce younger players to adult cricket – but we simply do not have the numbers this year to field 4 teams on a Saturday.
Looking on the positive side, we can now concentrate on putting out the best A XI we can without the necessity of balancing and scraping together another team. And let’s hope that we can bounce back and once again run 4 teams next season…
Fantasy Cricket 2014
By popular demand, and after a two-year absence, the Trowbridge Fantasy Cricket competition is back for the 2014 season!
Rules are the same as in previous years – go along to the Fantasy Cricket page to read the rules and pick your team. Entries are still £5, transfers £1, and you’ll also find details of the prizes.
You’ll need to register an account on the site to pick a team. You’ll need to create a new account even if you previously registered last time the competition was running.
I’ve tried to include everyone I think is likely to be playing regularly this season, but if you think your name should be on the list and isn’t, please email me and I’ll add you in.
Finally, the process of assigning values to players is a tricky one. If you’re not happy with your valuation, please don’t complain – just go out there this season and try to prove me wrong!
Good luck, and try to get your teams in before the first league match next Saturday...
2014 Playing Kit
The playing kit for Trowbridge senior members is now available to order online.
The link above will take you directly to the site with the Trowbridge kit on it. Please pass this on to all your fellow club members and team mates, as we would really like to start looking like a club again.
All first team players will require a playing shirt and a cap to start the league season, which will be discussed during pre-season. Players for other teams – please consult your skippers.
It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of lifelong Trowbridge Cricket Club member Pat Andrews. Pat played for the club for many many years and also served much of his time at the club as a committee member. Pat's funereal service is at the West Wilts Crematorium, Semington on Tuesday 15th April starting at 12.15pm. Our thoughts are with Anne and family at this sad time.

It was decided that the subs and match fees would remain the same as last year; however, the lower amount would now be payable by U18s and those in full-time education.
There will be a signing-on event on 28 March, at which time all players will be expected to pay their membership fees. This year, there will be a strict no pay, no play policy enforced, due to the requirements of the club’s insurance.
