Dicko Speaks (again) .............
Anyone excited? I am after some fresh Chester sunshine over the pre-season weekend the ground looked in all its glory as some of the clubs players got their first run out of the year. With a long indoor programme complete everyone has been ready for taking to the grass and get the final bits of rust off ready for week one of the league campaign. Saturday we welcomed old friends from division 1 Oulton Park captained by Cheshire batsman Rick Moore to Filkins Lane. It was a great chance for us to bat first and give the batsman chance to get a feel for the pace of the surface. We managed 290 with Warren, Rolo and Guy getting to 50 retired plus myself, Rodders and Jacko making 20+. The Bowling unit included Ben and new signing Christian plus the spinners Harry, Jack and Rodders not to forget Warren. It was a good chance to hit are areas and get use to Rolo behind the sticks. Oulton Park got to 150ish and the highlight being a super cameo from Ben Kettle. Jordan Clark arrived to speak to the group and give his thoughts, this also gave the group time to adjust to his new beard. The game was played in a good spirit and that carried on in the bar late into the evening.
Sunday saw the all-conquering Ladies team take on the League Select XI on the front and the 1st team taking on Weaverham on the back pitch. The numbers watching both games were good as many had attended another successful Champagne reception. The Ladies in particular seem to be involved in a very high quality match which saw us give debuts to young players Beth, Holly and Molly. With Cheshire women’s coach Alex Blake in attendance I am sure players from both sides took the eye.
On the back the 1st’s had made a couple of changes on the back pitch from the team that played Saturday with Shane, Ryan, Bobby, Alec, Adam and Tom Wyatt all brought into the side. After being asked to bat we opened up with Guy and Jacko both looking confident and making 20’s, I was joined by the returning Oli Law and we managed to move the score on both ending up with 40 odds. Bobby Evans accelerated the run rate with a classy 30 but with innings looking to wobble young Wyatt on 1st team debut managed to play a very patient innings batting for over a hour and supporting batsman who came and went while the scoreboard moved on he ended up 24 before being the last man dismissed with the score on 215.
With a strong looking batting line up from the opponents bolstered by the Winnington Park Australian we felt that the score was par and would have to bowl well. Luckily we did Jacko opened with Ryan with the latter bowling with real control. We managed to pick up early wickets and put pressure on with Gloveman Adam Dunbavand showing glimpses of high quality handling. Shane Patel collected wickets again and Rodders again started to show flashes off his old self. Weaverham ended up 60 short after a good last wicket stand, but plenty of positives for the CBH group that played. Guy Dunbaven will be a great addition to the first team mix when he returns from school cricket commitments, plus Shane Patel again showed he is ready to step up if called upon.
Thanks to Team co-ordinator Derek and Donaldo Scorer for making this weekend so hassle free, Having support like that makes everyone’s day so much easier. And welcome to Josh Australian Fast bowler who we picked up from the airport last night.
See you all at nets Tuesday 6pm.
Lee Dixon Club Coach / 1st Team Captain
Message from the incoming Honorary Club Captain
Following another night of unexpected surprises at the club, I would like to express my thanks and appreciation to Chris for handing over the role of Club Captain. His tenure has seen many beneficial changes, not least being the engendering of a family atmosphere and encouraging the development of our junior and young players, many of whom are representing the club in senior team selections. Long may this continue. I will endeavour to carry out any duties to the best of my ability and availability and uphold the traditions of this fine cricket club.
As we embark on a new exciting season I am sure that the mens, ladies and junior teams under the leadership of their respective team captains, vice captains and managers will strive to maintain or improve on the successes of last season.
Please continue to enjoy your club, respect your fellow members and officials and support the many events that are being planned by your Management Committee. Don't forget to pay your subs.

New Club Captain: Thiss takes over from Fleet
With the new season only weeks away, the club members were treated to a fantastic night’s entertainment from the Rhos male voice choir. A full house took the opportunity to see this famous group and support the club in its first fundraiser of the year.
The evening had many high points, none more than club stalwart John Thistlewood being named the new Club Captain. John is taking over from ex 1XI captain Chris Fleet. Chris paid a fitting tribute to the incoming Captain by saying “I always said that that it was a great honour to be Club Captain and I would step aside when there was somebody who had better credentials for the role. John has these credentials and we have found the perfect successor, after dedicating his cricket career to the club”.
The club house listened intently as the new captain promised to continue the good work Chris has done over previous years. It was nice to see all of John’s family present in the clubhouse for him to receive his accolade.
David Lloyd: Thursday 5th June 2014
David Lloyd will be visiting the club on Thursday 5th June 2014, and speaking at an evening dinner in the clubhouse. Time to be there is 7pm for a 7.30pm start.
Due to unprecedented demand, the event is almost sold out. However, in fairness to members, some tickets are being held back until 5pm on Wednesday 2nd April 2014 so members get a chance to get involved. Please speak to Chris Fleet if you would like a ticket.
We have recently been contacted by Owen Williamson, the Cheshire Cricket Development officer, and been informed that a coaching course is being run at Malpas CC on Tuesday 29th April and 6th May from 6pm - 9pm. at a cost of £30.
This is a really good course which teaches them the basics including warm ups, games and skills and is only over 2 evenings for 6 hours in total with a short assessment during the second 3 hours.
The link for the course which has to be paid and applied for on line is below. If sufficient numbers don't apply this course will not run, which would be a great detriment to the Chester Area.
