WARM welcome to the
website of Sandhurst
Cricket Club. We are a friendly cricket club, based in the historical
English town of Sandhurst, Berkshire.
2013 season was the best season in the clubs history.
Following a mixed season in 2012 the club bounced back stronger than ever. Having been relegated from the Premier Division the 1st XI had been tipped to go straight back up an as champions by their peers, while the 2nd XI were looking to improve on a mid table finish in Division 3.
Over the summer months it was proven to be the best times in the clubs 25 year history, with both League side being promoted as Champions.
The club is now sitting at its highest ever League status, with the 1sts led triumphantly back to the Premier Division, by Adam Birch, and Mark Clapham’s 2nd XI team sweeping all aside to take their place in the 2nd Division also Anthony Clapham's midweek XI reaching the T20 Cup finals.
The club has had every reason to be celebrating long into the winter months and look to take this momentum into the 2014 season.
Chairman Simon Coxwell had this to say during the clubs presentation evening.
"Seasons like this don’t just happen because players hit the ball hard, bowl the ball straight or catch the ball well. There has to be a deep strength and respect amongst the individuals off the field to allow the consistency of excellence in the performances exhibited on the field so regularly and thrillingly this year.
The level of comradeship throughout the club this year has been extraordinary and, to those of us who have been been at this club from the start and have seen the club grow from nothing, its quite emotional. The likes of Martin and Chris Pharo, Aron Shallom, Des Sussex and Dave Robinson, can be truly proud of all the success this year following the years of graft and hard work put into making this club what it is today
When you have a season like we had this year, their are many memorable moments and performances. To name a few.
