Sad passing of Maurice Machin

It is with great regret that I have to announce the death of Maurice Machin. Maurice joined the club in 1968, having previously played  league cricket in Staffordshire. This was prior to league cricket in Essex and Maurice was used to playing hard cricket with an internationally famous pro in the side.

An excellent left arm bowler he was also a fine slip fielder. Initially most of his cricket was played in the 1st XI but he later became an essential member of the 2nd XI. He was an integral part of the club's first overseas tour to Holland in 1969

Maurice immediately became a key part of the club's social life , among other things leading the beer brewing on winter Sunday evenings at the club. He was  involved in the management of the club being a committee member for a number of years, bar chairman (before the days of paid stewards) and team secretary. Maurice regularly attended the club after finishing his playing days and always wanted to know how the club was doing.

When he stopped playing cricket, he joined the golf club and became captain of Wanstead Golf Club.

Our condolences go to Liz , his very supportive wife , who was also a key part of life at the cricket club in the 60' s and 70's.

Bar Service from Monday 19th July

While restrictions are being lifted from Monday 19th July, we have decided that, as a club, we still need to be prudent and cautious.

Hence, we have decided that, for the foreseeable future, on Friday evenings we will continue with “Table Service Only” for bar purchases. Please continue to use the QR codes on the tables and benches and do not come to the bar to buy drinks. In particular, we ask parents not to give their children money to make purchases at the bar.

At other times when the bar is open, you will be able to purchase directly from the bar. However please show common sense and do not enter the bar if it is busy. Also, when buying drinks at the bar, you will need your membership card in order to obtain the members’ discount. If you have not got a membership card, please speak to Niki behind the bar.

Thank you for your continued cooperation.

Thank you, Lynn

After over 20 years of service to the club, Lynn is retiring today. Thank you so much, Lynn. You have run the bar and so much else. You have looked after our members, young and old; looked after our children; welcomed the opposition and guests; waited for us to come back from distant away games; been there at short notice. You have been the constant face of the club. We wish John and Lynn a long and enjoyable retirement. It isn’t goodbye, but thank you both for everything.

Highlights from the Women's and Girls Tournament
On 1st July, 16 teams made up of friends, mums, daughters, aunts, cousins and even one or two grans took part in Wanstead Cricket Club's Women and Girls' Tournament.  There was some quality cricket played but most importantly, great fun was had by all.  Take a look and you'll get a good idea.

Bar Opening Hours

The bar will now be open at the following times:

Tuesday – 5.30 to 10pm

Thursday - 5 to 9pm

Friday – 4.30 to 11pm (outdoor service only)

Saturday – 12 to 11pm

Sunday – 12 to 10pm

The Nets Are Open + Membership Renewal

The nets are open!

Following receipt of the ECB guidelines (ECB Guidance 120421.pdf), we are pleased to confirm that the net booking system is now open. The nets will be open for booking from 4pm-8pm Mon, Tue, Wed next week. Thur, Fri, Sat, Sun will be 9am-8pm.

Adherence to the 2021 net protocol (Member Net Protocol 2021 V3.pdf)  is a condition of use.

The key points of the protocol are:

2 sessions a week maximum

45 minutes a session

Nets cannot be booked any more than 7 days in advance

No more than 6 in a net

Age limit is U10.

Only members, who have registered and paid their subscriptions, will be able to book net sessions using the link  https://wansteadccnets.skedda.com and be considered for selection, once we start playing matches.

Thank you to everyone, who has renewed their membership. If you have not done so, then

1. Adult Playing and Social Members: Go to  https://membermojo.co.uk/wccar

2. Junior Members: If you were U18 on 1st September 2020 go to https://membermojo.co.uk/wccjm .

The club fully appreciates that some members are under severe financial pressure. Paying the club subscription may be a strain on limited resources. If that is your situation, we obviously don’t expect you to pay your subscription. However if you still want to register or are a parent who wishes to register your child then please either contact Jon Gritten, Head of Junior Cricket, or me, as the Management Committee have given us the authority to discuss this sensitive issue with individual members.

A new way to pay match fees!

This season the Club  will be using an online system called Slate (
https://slateapp.co.uk/ ) to make it much easier for you to pay match fees and for us to collect them. Once you and/or your child is selected for a match you will automatically receive an email asking for the match fees, which you can pay online or by using the free app.

In the coming weeks you will receive an email from Slate, inviting you to download and register with Slate. It only takes two minutes to do so and we would appreciate you getting this done by the first game if possible. If you have any problems with getting set up on Slate, please email help@Slateapp.co.uk for assistance. 

Thank you for your support on this and helping to take the club forward.

If you have any questions about why we are using the new system or whether it’s secure etc then please click here Slate FAQs.pdf.

Partnership with the Corner House Project

The club and the Corner House Project (“CHP”) are delighted to announce a partnership, in which the club will support the CHP’s fundraising activities. The club was recently pleased to contribute to the charity £1,400, which was half the money raised at the successful online race night, the other half going to club funds. In addition, the club’s premises were recently used by the CHP for a very successful drop-off of donations of food, gifts and clothes for a variety of causes.

Based in the centre of Wanstead, the objective of the CHP is to help those that are vulnerable, homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless with the provision of food, warm clothes, and other essentials, as well as support and guidance.

Club receives ECB Clubmark accreditation for another 3 years

Fantastic news, the club has received ECB Clubmark accreditation for another 3 years.

ECB Clubmark is an accreditation scheme for cricket clubs and shows that a club is sustainable, well run and provides the right environment for its members. Clubmark accreditation also means your club is recognised as a safe, rewarding and fulfilling place for participants of all ages, as well as assuring parents and carers that they are choosing the right option for their young people.

To obtain accreditation, clubs are asked to provide evidence that they meet a series of criteria. This is done by loading evidence onto an online portal and by demonstrating good practice at a site visit conducted by an allocated Club Support Officer. Special thanks must go to Trevor Hebden who put in over 200 hours of work on this!
