Knockout Action

As the Staffordshire Club Cricket Championship T20 Knockout cup (take a breath) progresses into the Semi-Finals, Penn CC 2nd XI make light work of Wednesbury 2’s this evening, winning by 10 wickets chasing down 96 in a match played on the hottest day of 2015 so far, emulated through some hot hitting from the Penn openers.

SCORECARD

As we look towards finals day, this year hosted at Cannock CC on Sunday 6th September, an interesting stat is drawn out…there is only one club left in the tournament that has the opportunity to be represented in all three finals…

Back to this weekend and league action, Penn host Lichfield in a precursor to the team’s T20 semi-final. The 2nd XI play away to Lichfield and 3’s at home to Wolverhampton and finally the 4s away to Springhill.

ECB Survey Returns!

National Cricket Playing Survey is Now Live! 
The  ECB is calling on recreational players to have their say and influence the future of the sport at grassroots level in its third annual National Cricket Playing Survey.

The 2015 survey is now open and aims to generate new and innovative ideas which will help to retain existing players and increase take-up of the sport. Every player, from Premier League cricketers to the occasional Sunday friendly player, is being urged to have their say on all aspects of the recreational game.
Last year more than 37,000 current and former players nationwide responded to the survey – giving the ECB a fresh insight into how best to improve and support the grassroots game.
Nearly 100 leagues have already revised structures or formats this season based on player feedback from last year’s survey.

Players who complete the National Cricket Playing Survey at www.ecb.co.uk/survey have the chance to win prizes! These include signed merchandise and pairs of tickets to Investec Ashes Series and Royal London ODIs.
The Survey closes 11:59pm Wednesday 15th July 2015.
