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.
March 14th - Poker and Curry Night!
On Saturday 14th March we are hosting a Poker and Curry Night at the club. It will be £5 a head for some curry and £10 a ticket to get involved with the poker.
We are going to have 30 tickets available (potentially more!) for poker at £10 a person. First prize is £100 and second prize is £50.
Please contact John Carroll on 07545228047 if you are interested.
Overseas Signings - Wesley Marshall and Gareth Harte
We are proud to announce that we have signed Wesley Marshall for a second season. Wesley is a top order batsman who also bowls right arm off spin. Wesley comes back to Trowbridge after a successful first season in 2014. Wesley will be coming back to the UK following a very successful season in South Africa having broken in to the first class side Easterns.
We welcome Wes back to Trowbridge following his debut season in 2014 where he was an integral part of the team. Wes scored 3 hundreds and 2 fifties on his way to 622 runs with a high score of 137 vs Nationwide house. He was also a very important part of our bowling line up as our number one spinner taking 20 wickets at an average of 24.15.
We can also announce we have signed Gareth Harte for the 2015 season. Gareth joins us from Old Edwardians Cricket Club in Johannesburg. Gareth is an all-rounder who bats in the top order and bowls right arm fast. Gareth already has experience of playing in the UK having played for Kent 2nd XI and Ashcott & Shapwick in Premier One in the 2014 season.
