Cricket Club: Captain's Log  

Tipton St John Cricket Club

Its not been a hugely successful winter for Tiptons indoor cricketers, who failed to register a single victory before Christmas. Finally, our fortunes changed in January with a victory over old friends and neighbours Newton Poppleford - who better to get one over than our nearest and dearest rivals?

The 2020 season is still a few months away - there will be full details in the next edition -
but there has been a lot done behind the scenes. The fixture list is complete: 44 matches have been arranged, starting with our practice match on 19th April.

If anyone is interested in playing friendly village cricket, you are most welcome to get in touch (my contact details are below), whatever your experience and playing ability. Many of our matches are against other local friendly sides, some of whom play at grounds nearly as attractive as ours. Among the highlights of this season will be fixtures against touring teams, including the very welcome return of the Vancouver Island XI. I wonder if theyll recruit a certain H Windsor....

The best way to get involved would be to join us at our indoor net practice sessions which run from Sunday 22nd March to Sunday 5th April. All sessions are at Sidmouth Sports Centre from 10am – 12 noon.
