Eaton Bray Cricket Club
Posted on April 5, 2010
The snow has gone, the temperatures are rising and Eaton Bray Cricket Club is preparing for its 30th season at its 'new' ground in The Rye (just beyond the nursery). 'The Rye Gardens' was a project of the then Chairman and President Ken Bearton and George French. It has evolved from disused Parish Council owned allotments into a well used and well cared-for cricket ground. Dave Roberts and Mick (and Sharan) Flecknell ensure that the facilities receive the best attention through hard work, dedication and the use of funds provided by sponsors; Hawkins Transport and M&M Properties.
The club welcomes new and old players from the village to visit and experience the facilities, and hopefully join as a member. The club especially welcomes budding cricketers, as it is looking to develop even further. Anyone interested can either contact Ian Jones via the Eaton Bray Cricket Club website, or just turn-up to the twice weekly training sessions on Wednesdays and Fridays, starting at 6.30pm. And, of course, there is no charge to watch any of the games.
The club has been very successful over recent years, and again won the Four Counties League last season. It runs three teams, two on Saturdays and one on Sundays, catering for all standards.
At the recent AGM the following offi cers were elected: President Lee Bearton, Chairman & Treasurer Martin Quinn, Secretary Michael Jarrett, Saturday 1st team captain Andy Norris, Saturday 2nd team captain Darren Kerins and Sunday captain Josh Peacock.
