Friday Training

Well at last the season has arrived and the first session is this Friday 22 April:) If this is your first year at Wanstead, a particularly warm welcome to you.  Here are the key timings:

  • Boys in Years 3,4,5 and 6 - Training from 4:30 to 6pm
  • Boys in Years 7,8,9 and 10 - training from 6:30 to 8pm.  
  • For both sessions please arrive up to 15 minutes earlier to sign in and you will be directed where to go.

And here's some other key information:

  • Parents/carers of children who are in years 3 to 5 must stay at the club during the session
  • If children are not taking part in a session, please make sure that they stay off the playing area.
  • We also ask parents/ carers to stay off the playing field during sessions. This particularly applies to around the net area.
  • Any comfortable sports wear and shoes are appropriate - you don't have to have whites or cricket equipment.  The only exception to this is that boys who are using a hard ball must have their own box to bat in the net.

We take our safeguarding responsibilities at the club very seriously and would ask that you read our Family Charter and Members' Charter before Friday.  

If there's anything I've missed out that you need to know, please do drop me an email of have a chat with me on Friday.  You are also welcome to speak to one of our Safeguarding team.  I look forward to seeing you Friday.

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.

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.

Bar Opening Hours

The bar will now be open at the following times:

Friday – 7 to 11pm

Saturday – 7 to 11pm

Sunday – 12 to 8pm

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!
