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.

Sunday 30th April 2017 – Six a Side and Table Tennis Competition
The traditional first of our social days for 2017 will be a new format for the inter club 6 a side tournament. This season we have invited Goresbrook, Orsett and Belhus to take part in a 6 a side 4 team tournament. Also, we will be inviting the same clubs to participate in an under 11s kwik cricket tournament.
The table tennis tournament will also continue as in previous years.
It is vital that we have enough volunteers on the day to do duties such as umpiring, scoring, BBQ, the bar, teas and generally organise.
