Eversley U7's stars of the future!18 July 2014 will go down in the records as the first ever U7's fixture played on the hallowed square at Eversley CC with many thanks to Derek Budd for preparing a perfect wicket.

Our visitors were Sonning CC, another club with a strong U7's squad, and the Eversley boys recorded a win!

Under Kevin Smith's terrific coaching and guidance the squad have developed their skills and will be a team to be reckoned with over the coming years. 

07 Jul 2014 : Great winning streak ends for under 13 Girls
We lost our first game of the season, last Sunday, July 13th, the Cup Final v Basingstoke. Louisa and Amy were unavailable, due to the finals being staged after the school broke up. We gave a debut to Georgia, our star u11, whose only hard ball experience was training last Friday - she fielded really well. And we did!! All the comments since have been about the positivity, performance and professionalism of all our players - a great effort and a performance of which all the players can be proud.
We lost the toss & batted. Nina topscored with an excellent 28 from 35 balls, supported by an innings of 19 from 50 balls from Jess, full of concentration;2 quick cameos from Zara 11 from 11 and Holly 8 from 9; we finished on 99 for 6, a respectable score in the circumstances, but we would have to get them out to win. We came close - a wicket each for Lulu, Emma, Sohini and Abi, who also got a run out, as did Zara.Jessica Head, the Basingstoke captain,  scored 33 not out, hitting the winning runs with 2 overs to spare.
I am proud of the effort and standards our players achieved.
Terry Lynch, Coach & Manager

02 Jul 2014 : U17s reach regional final of Hampshire Kerry Cup
Having beaten Kingsclere in the first round, Eversley U17s put Fleet to the sword amassing 200 without loss (Kieran Thomson 120 no & Jack Ford 61 no) from their 20 overs before restricting Fleet to 146 for 5 from their 20 overs. We believe this was the first ton in junior 20 over cricket for Eversley. We play either Yateley or Basingstoke in the regional final to be played in July. Just two games from the Hampshire final to be played at the Ageas bowl....

09 Jun 2014 : Eversley U9 Spitfires beat Hartley Wintney B by 128 runs

Match Report - U9 Spitfires v Hartley Wintney B

Always a tense ‘derby’ match against our local rivals (well for the adults anyway !), Sunday was a scorcher of a day and the Spitfires obviously aware that it was the anniversary of the D-Day landings and this needed to be celebrated turned in a scorcher of a performance (Spitfires - D–Day – World War 2 – tenuous link, no more I promise !).

Our Captain for the day, Eddie C lost the toss and we were sent into bat on the well known batting paradise that is the Pony Field.  After losing a quick wicket to the second ball of the game, the boys then went on a run of simply fantastic batting scoring a scarcely believable 80 runs of the bat with everybody contributing. Special mention has to go to Captain Eddie who scored 19 including a run of 4, 4, 6, but he was overshadowed by (proud parent moment here) Hugo who scored 32 which included two 6’s and four 4’s. We finished up with a score of 349 for 4 (net 329) which on the Pony Field is nothing short of remarkable.

After a quick drink and cake break (thanks to Cherie Denham for showing us her baking prowess) we started out in the field.  The intensity and momentum we built up in our batting continued and we were taking wickets at regular intervals with Dev A taking 3 wickets and everybody else chipping in with either wickets or run-outs.  At the end of the game Hartley Wintney limped to 251/10 (net 201) and Eversley ‘snuck’ a win by 128 runs.

In fairness to the opposition they were a young side who hadn’t played much cricket but the Spitfires were clinical both with the bat and ball and are turning into a really good side that would give many teams in Division 1 a good game.  All in all, a great team performance and an excellent way for the coach to start his birthday (singing of Happy Birthday by the boys needed a bit of work but hay-ho I don’t coach that).

Thanks for all who helped set-up and made refreshments, four wins out of four so far, let’s keep it going.

23 Mar 2014 : Cricket coaching workshops a great success!
Cricket coaching workshops a great success!The second of this years cricket coaching workshops was held at the Eversley Indoor Cricket Centre on Friday 21 March 2014.

Those attending included Mums and Dads with no cricket experience all the way through to experienced cricketers including current Saturday League captains.

Over the two sessions a total of 17 enthusiastic particiapnts were given an introduction to cricket coaching with practical demonstrations and plenty fun! We were joined in the second workshop by some of the colts and girls who gave the participants the opportunity to practice their coaching skills.

During the workshops we also introduced the ECB coaching cards, an invaluable resource for all coaches, which set out the key coaching points for every batting shot and bowling action, how to keep wicket and fielding best practice including powerful and accuate throws and confident catching.

The sessions were run by a number of the club's experienced coaches and a huge thank you to Terry Lynch and Martin Perkin for giving up their time to plan, prepare and deliver the workshops.

We plan to run further courses in the Autumn and if you would like to find out more please contact Mike Tresise mtresise@lineone.net.
