Poynings Cricket Club Season Review 2013.

A mid table finish in Division 1 of the Mid Sussex league was the best Poynings Cricket Club could have hoped for as they experi-enced a season of mixed fortunes during the summer of 2013.

On their day and at full strength they are a match for any side in the league as was proved when they beat eventual league winners Crawley Down convincingly, early in the season. Unfortunately, too often PCC were not at full strength which meant league per-formances were affected and that they were unable to fulfil some Sunday friendly fixtures. Even more worryingly both cup exits occurred without a ball being bowled as Poynings could not raise an XI.

In a long term bid to try and arrest the fall in player availability and numbers in PCC, a colts section was formed. This grew from a very cold and occasionally snowy Easter cricket camp with a handful of young people to having over 20 young people on the books and having played a number of friendlies against other local clubs by the end of the season. The season ended with a very enjoyable Presidents Day in late august which saw a fantastic mix of old friends, new players, local villagers, colts and their families enjoy a decent game of cricket but more importantly, decent food, beer and company.

If you or anyone you know of is keen to play sociable cricket in 2014, irrelevant of age or ability, then please get in contact with Club Captain Gary Wallis-Tayler @
