A Frayed Knot - 25th April @ 20:00
We are happy to say that we have A Frayed Knot playing at Trowbridge Cricket Club on the 25th April. Please feel free to come along and enjoy the gig and have a drink or two. Entry is free and everyone is welcome!
AFK is a rock\classic rock covers band from the Southwest of England.
They play pubs, clubs, parties, corporate events and festivals with a quality and professional sound and the music that they play is a carefully chosen mix of rock\classic rock songs (with the occasional pop or blues song thrown in for good measure) dating from the 70's through to the present day to suit most age groups with plenty for the guitar fans.
Thermaglaze - Club Sponsor
We are delighted to announce that Thermaglaze will be sponsoring the club for the next few seasons. We are very excited to work with Thermaglaze over the coming seasons and hope the partnership can be very successful.
Established in 1988, Thermaglaze has now arguably become the South West's leading home improvement company. They’ve achieved this through sticking to their ethos of offering good old-fashioned value for money, the very latest energy efficient, high security products and a customer service that’s second to none.
Overseas Signing - Andrea Agathangelou
We are proud to announce that we have signed Andrea Agathangelou for this season. Andrea is a top order batsman who also bowls right leg spin. Andrea comes to Trowbridge on the back of three successful seasons playing for Lancashire County Cricket Club. Andrea represented Lancashire in the LV County Championship, Yorkshire Bank 40 over competition and also the Natwest T20 Blast. Andrea has scored over 2500 runs in first class cricket including 5 hundreds and 13 fifties.
After making his debut for his South African province, North West, at 18 years of age, scoring two half centuries in the process. He joined Lancashire on a scholarship in 2010 as a 20-year-old allrounder - he can keep wicket as well as bat in the top order and bowl leg spin - and signed a professional contract a year later after some eye-catching form in the Second XI, in particular a four-day friendly against Somerset in which he made scores of 129 and 70 not out and took 10 wickets. He made his senior debut for Lancashire in the County Championship match against Somerset at Liverpool in August 2012.

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, to be announced soon, 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.
Wiltshire Wallop 2015
Great news for the club as we have now officially entered for the 2015 Wiltshire Wallop!
The Wiltshire Wallop was launched in 2013 and its aim is to become the premier 20 over competition in the county. Wiltshire Cricket Limited has identified the Wiltshire Wallop as a priority competition for retaining players, encouraging more matches for existing players and creating an enjoyable format which is played locally and competitively
It has been noted over the years that there is nobody at the club for people to talk to about any concerns or problems they have. Players discuss a wide range of issues amongst themselves. Without a formal method of airing and resolving these issues it can become a problem.
We're excited to announce that we have introduced a new position at the club. Phillip Rutland has been appointed as the Players Representative for the club. He is there for all players to note any feedback or concerns. The Players Rep is a completely independent position, separate from the Committee and the Clubhouse. Phil is contactable via Facebook, email or phone (TCCrep@talktalk.net) so if you have any feedback about anything, please let Phil know.
