Wendover Cricket Club – January 2021

Despite the on-going Covid-19 issues, Wendover Cricket Club enjoyed an active half season with many players showing increased enthusiasm for playing regularly. Covid guidelines keep changing but the club is hoping to run modified junior indoor training in January to March; however, restrictions mean adults will likely wait for an outdoor start in April. It is also hoped to start a Girls Section via signing up to the ECB’s Dynamos Scheme for 8 to 11 year olds during the summer; register initial interest by email to wendoverccgirls@gmail.com.

Progress with HS2 is slow, but much behind the scenes work is on-going to try and ensure that the relocation project at Tring Road can get going quickly, once the go-ahead to properly start is given. Cricket at the Ellesborough Road ground will occur in 2021 with the ground leased from HS2, but that will be the last season as a cricket ground – with a “leaving event” planned for Saturday 25 September 2021.

The club will be holding their AGM on 28 January via Zoom; more details, other stories and the season’s senior averages, plus contacts for enquiries can be found on the website www.pitchero.com/clubs/wendovercricketclub.
