Radyr Cricket Club

Season update

cicchettiAs I write this Radyr Cricket Club finds itself halfway through the 2017 season.  We have enjoyed unprecedented weather for this time of year and to date have only had one game abandoned. All four senior sides are playing a high standard of cricket the first XI placed fifth in the SEWCL 2nd Division and the second XI unbeaten flying high at the top of their respective division.

Our run up to the season welcomed ex Glamorgan and England bowler Simon Jones to the ground to put the bowlers through their paces. Simon has been working with our first XI and the youth through the season to develop their skills.  It is a great experience to face Simon in the nets as it’s not every day you get to bat against a Test cricketer especially one that was the scourge of international batsmen the world over! 

As we moved into the 2017 season, as with every year, we look to balance the books and finance the club.  It is a huge challenge just to maintain our facilities to provide cricket to the community.  Two pitches and the three lane permanent net facility take large amounts of time and money to maintain the standards we set ourselves.  This is all achieved by our members and volunteers and is a real testament to the club that we can provide cricket for four senior league sides and one Sunday non league side. We must also not forget the cricket we provide for both boys and girls from 5 years upwards, with the most recent addition being an Under 19 T20 team. 

We had been looking long and hard for a new shirt sponsor and felt that ‘local’ was the way forward.  So it was with great pleasure that Cicchetti of Station Road agreed to partner us for the next three seasons. We would like to thank Paulo and everyone at Cicchetti for this support. Our thanks also extends to the continued support of Radyr Garage as well as new sponsorship from Andrew Cox barbers, Glamorgan Telecom, Thomas H Wood, U Design Ltd and Gwynt y Ddraig.  Not all support however amounts to money; a special thanks must go to the Radyr and Morganstown Association in particular Nick Hawkins for loaning us the marquee for our annual Vice Presidents luncheon. 

Radyr Cricket Club is a vibrant, family club, proud of its 125 years of history within the local community.  It is wonderful to have so much local support in all its guises. 

In conclusion if you or any member of your family are interested in playing, scoring, umpiring or even cutting the grass do not hesitate to contact the club via www.radyrcc.co.uk or just pop down to the ground.

All Stars cricket has arrived!

This week has seen the club welcome some potential future stars of cricket as the first All Stars cricket session took place.  All Stars is a new national coaching programme launched this year by the ECB.  One of the aims of the programme is increase participation in cricket from a younger age throughout England & Wales.

Although we have a well established reputation for providing an excellent schedule of training for children between the ages of 6 – 15 we also recognise that there is always room for improvement. With this in mind during the winter we applied to become an approved centre for All Stars cricket and are delighted to now be able to offer cricket for juniors from age 5 – 15.

Anyone wishing to become involved with All Stars should visit allstarscricket.co.uk to register and gather more information.

RCC chosen as an NDC for girls cricket

Radyr CC  are delighted to announce that we have been chosen by Cricket Wales to host the first Cardiff and the Vale Girls Summer NDC (National Development Centre).

Girls involved in cricket from all over Cardiff and the Vale have been invited to attend weekly training sessions at Radyr CC and have been training since the start of May.  We are hoping that through this partnership we will be able to enter strong teams of U13 and U15 girls in the National Lady Taverners Competitions next season.
Cricket Wales are supporting these sessions by providing coaching for all those who attend, from 6pm to 8pm every Thursday evening at the Club from 4th May 2107.  All girls of all ages and abilities are welcome to come along and join in these sessions.
