Summer is here, well almost, and it is time for you to break out your bat and pads and head back to Friday night training sessions. They start this Friday at the park at Freuchie Cricket Club, Muirs Road, Freuchie at the usual time of 6:30pm until 8:00pm. The first night will be mostly taken up with registration and other administrative issues but if there is time we will try and do some training, This year the Club has decided that junior membership will be £6 for primary school age children and £12 for secondary school children and is due on registration. Please bring along your plastic membership card issued last year as this will be validated for 2009 .
Children interested in playing cricket are very welcome to come along to join in the fun. More information and details from Neil Millar.
To help parents and children to get to know each other the club is running a disco in the function suite using recently purchased equipment for all until 10:00pm. So I hope you will manage to stay for a short time and enjoy some time at the club. (The function suite is also available for function for club members so ask if you feel you would like to use the facility – donation welcome for its use).
The Club has also decided to get additional help with coaching and playing cricket from an overseas professional and an overseas amateur cricketer. This is a big financial commitment for the club but for the future of Freuchie Cricket Club players it is felt the best way forward. While no additional charges have been put in place to cover this cost it is hoped Junior well help with fund raising over the playing year. One way is to take part in the lucky number sheet every Friday. This will cost 50p per line where you pick 2 numbers from 20. If you get the correct numbers in the correct order you win at least a share of the money. If no one wins it rolls over to the next week. The current prize money is standing at £60 for this week. The draw is due to be done on Friday night. You got to be in it to win it so please take the opportunity by buying a line and also help the club fund the additional coaching staff.
The junior members were not able to take part in the sponsored cycle race between Christmas and New Year for club funds, Some members have asked to get involved in some way and so it has been decided to organise a sponsored cycle race of our own in June. This will involve all ages doing their own cycle race round the pitch or the cricket square depending on age. The plan for this is to take place in June more information will be posted on the blog and notice board.
