Fantasy League: The Winner!

So, the league season is over, and we have a winner in the Fantasy League!

Overturning a deficit of 58 points coming in to the final weekend, John Carroll's My Bat My Ball has won the competition by 31 points from ReggieXI, thanks to great performances from Ali Goddard, Chris Dicker and Dave Reynolds. In third place is Tom Oakley's Who Gives a 6.

Top individual player performer over the season, more than 50% ahead of his closest rival Mike Reynolds, is Wesley Marshall.

Thank you to everyone who took part; prizes will be presented at the players dinner (and money owed will be collected!).

Sponsored Walk Monday 25th August

The postponed Trowbridge CC Sponsored Walk will now take place on Monday 25th August (Bank Holiday). If you don't already have one, sponsorship forms are available from behind the bar or from captains of the respective senior teams, or from Dave Johnson if you are a member of the Youth section.

The walk is around 10 miles and starts at the Black Horse in Devizes (top of Caen Hill Locks) and finishes at the club where there will be some snacks for walkers. Meet time is 9am at the club or 9.30 at Devizes.

It is very important that we get a good turn out, so please make every effort to come along and raise some much needed money for the club (senior and youth sections).

Wiltshire Seniors

Here’s an opportunity for some of the club’s more “experienced” players…

The Wiltshire Seniors are looking to run the 45+ team in the 2014 season, and have a total of 5 fixtures for the season (including one at Trowbridge):

Thu 5 June Dorset 45+ A Wimbourne CC
Wed 9 July Hampshire 45+ A Paultons CC
Thu 17 July Dorset 45+ H Goatacre CC
Wed 6 August Biddestone CC A Biddestone CC
Wed 3 September Hampshire 45+ H Trowbridge CC

If any Trowbridge members fit the criteria and would be interested in playing, please contact the Wiltshire Seniors Secretary Geoff Halls by email as soon as possible.

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...
