Another busy “off-season” week for the Wick…


Great to see indoor winter training up and running, particularly hooking up with an old friend and ex-Wick coach, Monte Lynch. He was kindly giving his time to helping lead the girls training on Sunday. We were also very grateful to Ariana Dowse, wicket-keeper/batter for the Sunrisers (Sunrisers women’s cricket) who also gave her time for free and ran some great coaching sessions for the aspiring keepers amongst the girls (and giving a few tips to your Chairman!)


The Pavilion Rebuild team met on Monday. We were delighted to hear that the initial feedback from the Royal Parks for our pavilion rebuild plans is really positive. They also gave strong signals of their support for our plans for the temporary accommodation that will be in place for both the 2024 and 2025 seasons. Watch this space for more details. Please also put the date of 26 February evening in you diary when we will be presenting all the latest plans to those that can attend an on-line presentation from members of the Rebuild team. Invite to follow soon….


On Wednesday Dom Spray, our Head of Juniors Cricket, and I attended a Surrey CCC Club Development Roadshow at Wimbledon CC. There was a wide and varied agenda but particular focus on support for volunteer coaches and club administrators. We are so grateful to all our voluntary coaches but we need more! On that topic, a big shout out to Keerat Khaira who is not only completing his Level 2 Core Coaching qualification as I write, but also received a bursary from Middlesex CCC to do this.


Congrats to K, and if you would like to get involved as a coach, or in any capacity to support our junior cricketers, please let me or Dom know.
