Date for your Diary: CCC Hopes to Smash Ladies Cricket Festival for Six on 3rd September

By | Club | No Comments

Surrey Cricket Foundation have a big focus on the development of ladies and girls club cricket, and with England ladies boosting the scene further with their World Cup win, along with the introduction of the Kia Super League, never before has there been such a spotlight on the ladies side of the game.

Surrey’s initiative comes in the form of the ‘Smash It’ festivals, where ladies and girls of all ages and abilities can partake in a kwik-cricket style pairs soft-ball tournament. Chertsey Cricket Club’s ladies squad, the Bluebelles, have taken sides to two tournaments over the Summer with great success, at Pyrford and Godalming (with Sutton and Newdigate also hosting), and now it’s Chertsey’s turn to host the fifth and final festival of the season, on Sunday 3rd September.

The event is designed to give ladies of all abilities and ages an opportunity to learn or develop further their cricket skills with like-minded ladies in a club atmosphere. Participants can sign up either individually or as a club to make up teams.

The event at Chertsey starts at 1pm but sign-in is from 12.15pm onwards. There’ll be food available to buy from our lovely burger van, and the local Scouts group will be on hand to provide activities throughout the day.

But most importantly… the club will be providing all participants with a glass of Prosecco (18+ only!) and a cricket tea.

If any ladies want to reserve a (free) ticket please use the link below or email Claire at bluebelles@chertseycc.org.uk for more information.

CPL Round Three: It’s all to play for

By | Club | No Comments

If this were Premier League football, Sky Sports would have spent a lot of money on a fancy advert to scream about just how important this latest round of fixtures are.

As it is, this is the EweMove-sponsored Chertsey Premier League and we’ll have to make do with this post for now.

Nevertheless, the final round of league matches takes place this Sunday with everything to play for.

The honour of finishing top of the league will be decided by the outcome of Gogmore Knights vs Meads Enforcers in the first match, starting at 1pm. The winner will qualify directly for the EweMove CPL Final next month.

Then, in the second match, Grove Armada and Bourne Stars will battle it out to avoid elimination from the tournament, with the victor progressing to take on whichever team finishes second in the league in a semi-final on Finals Day.

CPL Round Two Roundup and Photos

By | Club | No Comments

Well, it was another fantastic day down at Chertsey Cricket Club on June 25th for the second round of the CPL.

There was another huge turnout of support and the weather was kind once again for what is proving to be a huge hit of an event at the club. And the cricket was pretty good too

The results?

The Meads Enforcers held on against Grove Armada, who needed three fours from the last three balls of the innings to win in the first match.

Then, Gogmore Knights stormed to victory against Bourne Stars later on, led by an explosive display of hitting from skipper Jack Ogle.

The avid followers among you will know that, with one game remaining in the league phase, there are two undefeated teams and two winless ones.

And, thanks to the genius of the fixture computer, those sides play each other in round three.

The Enforcers and Knights do battle first, with the winner taking top spot and a direct route to the final.

Later on, the winless Stars and Armada fight it out. The winner qualifies for the semi-final in third place. The loser is out, clutching a wooden spoon.

Before then, you can whet the whistle with some more superb camera work from official CCC pap Honey Redmond:

Photos from a fantastic CPL opening

By | Club | No Comments

The Chertsey Premier League launched last week under basking sunshine, swarmed by spectators (including the odd celebrity), and with some fantastic cricket played.

We’d like to thank everyone that came along to help make the occasion such a success, from the dedicated bar staff and volunteer umpires to the highly technical sound department and picnic fans. It’s days like these that make you realise what a truly spectacular club we have.

On the field there were wins for the Gogmore Knights, led by a scarcely believable knock of 43* from Richard Ley, and Meads Enforcers, for whom Luke Westcott did a lot of damage to our specially-decorated CPL stumps with the ball.

If you missed out on the entertainment we’ve got a few pictures of the day below (thanks Honey Redmond) and three more of these wonderful events to come!

Come and see the Strollers in action

By | Club | No Comments

The weather is set fair and there is no work on Monday, so there’s really no excuse not to pay the club a visit this Sunday, especially as our much-loved veteran team the Strollers are in action.

Stuart Chenery’s troops, which contain some current players and those from yesteryear, are taking on Sunbury at Grove Road from 2pm looking to avenge the defeat they suffered to those rivals in the same fixture last year.

You can find out exactly who is taking the field here. It promises to be a really special day.

CPL Round One – Sunday 21st May

By | Club | No Comments

The wait for fast-paced, frenetic, six-hitting CPL action, complete with coloured kit and walk out songs, is over.

The first round of matches takes place this Sunday 21st May, kicking off at 1pm with Gogmore Knights against Grove Armada. Then, at 4pm Meads Enforcers do battle against Bourne Stars.

There will be plenty to keep the crowd entertained. Our bar will open at 12:30pm, the extremely popular burger van will be pitching up at 3:30pm and for every catch taken in the crowd (excluding players in the current match) there will be a £10 bar voucher to use that day.

The teams for both games are below so make sure your in place for the start at 1pm and the first crowd catch!
