Warfield Cricket Club
2021 News update from the Chairman
I hope you and your families are all safe and well?
I very much doubt there will be any indoor training this year, that includes adult net sessions, it is quite obvious to all that the latest lockdown is unlikely to be lifted until at least March, if it is very tight restrictions will be in place. On top of this schools are understandably very reluctant to hire out their facilities to outside clubs. This is unfortunate as I am sure all the players and children could do with a bit of an escape.
Outdoor training will start week commencing 26th April for 13 weeks, this may be subject to change due to the current circumstances. Dependent on weather and the facilities I will provisionally offer a net facility for the Saturday & Sunday teams for the first two weekends in April due to there being no indoor nets and the first matches are 17th and 18th April.
Monday 26th April Girls and Ladies
U9s + U11s 18:00 - 19:00
U13s + U15s 19:15 - 20:30
Friday 30th April Adults and Boys
U15s + U17s 18:00-19:30
Sunday 02nd May Boys and Girls
U7s mixed 09:00-10:00
U9s and U11s Boys 09:00-10:15
U13s Boys 10:15-11:30
I will be looking to get in external coaches for Monday night and Sunday morning.

Warfield Development Team
I have previously been in touch with some parents and the committee with the view of creating a development team and entering it into the Berkshire League as a second Saturday team. After some thought and deliberation it was decided to still create a development team but arrange friendly matches as apposed to league games, reasoning being we would have to commit to 18 matches which I fear would become a struggle at certain points of the year. Dates and details will be published in due course.
Fingers crossed we have a fuller season than last year, I do however envisage the same kind of match restrictions as last year, hopefully everyone behaves themselves and we will start to see a reduction on people falling ill.
If anyone has any questions or issues please don't hesitate to get in contact.
