Welcome to the Great Horwood Cricket Club Website

LATEST NEWS……

It has been decided that the time is now appropriate for the club to hold a 2nd Extraordinary General Meeting of the Cricket Club.
 

This meeting will take place on Monday 4th December at 6.30 p.m. in the club pavilion.

Since the first EGM on 20th October 2017 there has been a lot activity going on about the future plans for GHCC 2nd XI.
We are confident now, that the timing is perfect for us to discuss the current situation regarding the future of our 2nd XI for season 2018.
By the evening of the EGM, we should know the following:
  • The outcome of the 2nd Appeal against the OCA decision to refuse our 2nd XI entry in 2018.
  • The chairman, club captain and cricket secretary will have attended the AGM of the Four Counties Cricket League on Wednesday 29th November. From this there could be an indication of where we would be placed in the FCCL.
  • We already know that we can secure a place in the South Northants Cricket League if we want it.
  • The number of new players willing to join GHCC.
The outcome of this EGM will hopefully achieve the following (possibly more):
  • A clear picture of the playing numbers and strength for season 2018
  • A decision on which Saturday league our 2nd XI will play in for season 2018
  • How we can widen the playing opportunities at the club? E.g. Sunday cricket and/or midweek cricket
  • How we can build on the opportunities now available to radically broaden our Youth/Junior programme to ensure an ongoing strategy that provides a regular stream of youth players into Senior cricket
  • How we can re-introduce participation in the Bucks Cricket Board League fixtures
  • How we work together with our incoming players to ensure a well managed integration into the club that ensures that appropriate cricket opportunities are available to ALL.
  • How we can continue to attract new members to the playing side of the club to ensure that we put the club back onto firm foundations.
This meeting provides a REAL opportunity for us all to secure and develop the future of our club.
It is important that as many interested parties as possible attend this EGM.
Please make every effort to attend this meeting. This is your chance to play a part in ensuring that your club makes the right decisions that will protect its future.

Memorial Match…

…for ‘Sir’ Bob Ridgway and Mick ‘Wobbley’ Moore took place Sunday 20th August @ Great Horwood CC.

The day was well attended with varies money raising events taking place, as well as the cricket, although the weather wasn’t all that kind to us and the game had to be abandoned.

However, this didn’t dampen the spirit or the reason why everyone turn out.  We managed to raise £544.70, spilt between two chosen charities, Bowel Cancer UK and The Lord’s Taverners.

On behalf of GHCC, we would like to thank everyone for taking part and for   helping to raise the funds for two worthy causes.  We look forward to travelling to Thornborough in 2018!
