Eaton Bray Cricket Club
Posted on April 17, 2008
The Annual General Meeting of the club was held in February and was well attended by 20 members. It was lively and long. It lasted 4 hours during which time the members elected a management team of Lee Bearton and Martin Quinn as president and chairman, plus Ian Jones and Michael Jarrett as treasurer and secretary respectively.
The captaincy of all teams has changed hands. Andy Norris was elected as first team captain. Darren Kerins has dropped to the second team giving the 'twos' his tactical nous. An inexperienced combination of Ian Jones and Josh Peacock, his vice-captain, will lead the Sunday team.
The first match is on Saturday 19 April, but ahead of that there is much preparation. Naturally the players will continue to fine tune or indeed learn some of the more rudimentary skills. The off-field preparations are also underway. Nick Pearson is repairing the cladding to the outside of the pavilion, but the bulk of the work will be done, as usual by the Flecknells.
Whilst it is a cricket club, its social secretary Georgie Coughtrey does arrange other events. In February Brian Hing's team of masterminds won the quiz night and prior to that Lawrence Bunker's red-hot tip at Towcester, made a couple of pounds for the lucky few. On 12 April, an indoor race night is scheduled. It will be held at the Sports and Social Club. Tickets are available from Georgie.
The club is always very encouraging of new members. This season, in particular, the club is promoting junior membership, as it will be running some junior matches, in conjunction with Edlesborough Cricket Club. If you'd like to join, please contact Martin Quinn.
