Club Safeguarding Officer

Trevor Hebden has informed the Management Committee that he wishes to stand down as Club Safeguarding Officer. The Management Committee wishes to place on record its appreciation for everything  Trevor has done in this demanding role over the past five years. He will continue to serve the club in a number of other areas. We would also like to thank Vivienne for the support she has given him.

I am delighted that Niru Williams has agreed to take on the position of Club Safeguarding Officer. This was unanimously agreed at the Management Committee Meeting held on 23rd September, 2021. Niru brings to the position considerable experience in welfare practice. She served as the club's Welfare Coordinator Officer for the 2021 summer season.

Martin Pluck, Chairman

Cup Victories for Wanstead Juniors

The end of the season ended in triumph for the U16s in the 40 over Trevor Bailey Match play final.  Wanstead got off to a great start with Zoraiz Saeed and Thinod Balage Don putting on  a massive 181 for the first wicket with Thinod going on to make 101 out of a huge total of 268.  In reply Shenfield were never in the hunt finishing on 189.

To make it a cup double, Wanstead u13s comfortably defeated Ilford in the Len Stentiford T20 final. Ilford posted a decent 122 but this was never enough against a confident Wanstead team.  Aryan Ahmed was the pick of the bowlers with 1-8 off his 3 overs.  Not content with that, along with Kiran Arawwawala, both boys hit undefeated 30s with Ilford’s 122 being overhauled with 4 overs to spare.

Firsts win Essex League Cup!

Congratulations to the 1st XI, who on Sunday beat Brentwood CC to win the Essex League Cup. It was a great team performance however the biggest star of the show was Robin Das who hit a match winning 93 not out including three massive sixes with just a couple of overs to go. A very tense game was won in the last over.

More success for Wanstead

Not to be outdone, Wanstead women won the first ever NCL T10 trophy, by comfortably defeating Loughton. Saba Nasim with 48 and Zainab Khan with 28, made an impressive total of 82-0, and Aaisha Usman sealed the victory with 4 wickets in 2 overs. What a great day!

Thank you, Lynn

After over 20 years of service to the club, Lynn has retired. 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.

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

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

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!
