Indoor League/New Kit/Youth Section Meeting/Christmas Bash/Six a Side and Table Tennis Tournament
Posted Tue, 22 Nov 2016 11:50 by peter.j.reynolds. Permalink
Indoor Winter League
The Havering Indoor league is now defunct so the committee having been working on ensuring we still play competitive indoor cricket during the winter.
In the New year, it is likely we will be invited to play in the South Essex Indoor Cricket League, which will be played at the Gateway Academy, near Grays, on a Monday night. We will also be looking to get a youth team playing in the South Essex indoor league.
Also in the New year, to supplement this, Jono will be organising on a monthly basis at Campion School Sports Hall a 3 team inter club 6 a side round robin series of matches. This will ensure everyone that wishes to play indoor cricket can do so.
New Playing Kit
New kit will be available to order in the next few months, so playing shirts, T20 shirts, tracksuit tops, tracksuit bottoms and shorts will be available to buy. Anyone that has fully paid their annual subs from 2016 will receive a discount on their order, courtesy of the sponsorship money from Rainham Village Kebab.
Please contact Jas Hothi on 07794-949771 before the year ends to get your order in.

This meeting took place at the clubhouse on 9th November and its welcome to Joe Attfield as the new under 15s manager (assisted by Charlie and Abdal), Darren Wallace who will be going on a coach support worker course and Kelly Wallace who will be attending a Club Welfare Officer course. Sharon Adkins will be standing down from the Welfare Officer role and we all wish to thank her for the countless number of hours of voluntary service that Sharon has put into Rainham Cricket Club.
