2016 Season Welcome

The 125th Anniversary celebrations of last year are now a thing of the past but for those who were involved in the organization and played during Cricket Week I am sure the experiences will live long in the memory. The sight of hundreds of people at the ground on the evening of the Celebrity game was a joy to behold whilst the MCC enjoyed themselves so much that they are coming again this year.

During the winter our Under 13’s again won the Cardiff & Vale Indoor League with the younger “B” side finishing third. The club has eighteen youngsters in the various representative squads and I suspect some new young faces will be making their senior debuts in 2016.

As usual the close season is never dull in local cricketing circles with this year’s big news being the amalgamation of the Glam & Mon and the Conference to become the South East Wales Cricket League. This will not really affect the four league sides as the status quo remains for all. Hopefully next year stability will be the watch word and the fixtures released before the end of March.

In conclusion can I wish the best of luck to all skippers, especially Ben O’Neil, players, coaches and anybody else who contributes to the success of our wonderful club in 2016.
