Letter to gauge Membership 2021

As our numbers grow and as the DCSCC remit is to get more seniors playing cricket, the Club is looking at the possibility of a friendly League, that will accommodate those players keen to play but who may not play in the National Leagues teams. The league will follow the counties we play in the National League.

The format has yet to be determined i.e. number of overs, home and away etc. However, in order to participate, the Club needs to gauge how many players are willing to take part .This league will be open to players from the 60’s and 70’s. The captains of the 60’s 1st XI and 2nd XI are also canvassing their age group players to see if there is enough take up of playing members to form teams to compete.

I know that many of you did not play in 2020 and maybe are considering whether you wish to continue your playing careers, so I ask that you reply to this email as to whether you are available to be selected for inclusion in the teams for this season. Your responses will greatly assist the captains and the Club.

O'70's please reply to Stuart Lott, O'60's 1st XI to Nick Rogers, O'60's 2nd XI Neil Matthews by Monday FEBRUARY 1st please.
