Message from the Chairman:
Dear Club members,
The 2018 season is fast approaching and we need your help! We are currently have a number of roles available to club members, if you are interested in any of the following roles, please let me, or somebody on the committee know:
- All Stars Cricket Coordinator
- Colts Team Managers
- 2nd or 3rd team captains or organisational support
The club is delighted that the number of girls joining the Colts has increased. We would therefore appreciate any extra female volunteers to give their time to the club as this will directly benefit these members. There are a number of roles available in the Colts, however, we would appreciate any time dedicated, no matter how small.
I look forward to seeing you all back at Bath Lane in the coming weeks.
Fareham & Crofton’s Bath Lane pitch topped the poll for the Hampshire Cricket League’s Most Improved Ground Award in 2017 – and promptly dedicated it to Tony ‘Bomber’ Brown, the club’s long serving Octogenarian groundsman, who died shortly before the start of the season after a long illness.
Tony, who has been at Fareham for over 50 years as a player, administrator, groundsman and virtually everything else, had been hugely instrumental in the laying of the new and re-sited main square at Bath Lane. Tony had also been the HCL’s grounds advisor for many years. It was the first time a club which prepares and maintains two cricket squares on the same ground had won the award.
