2018-19 Player Registrations Open

Published by:

Welcome to the Centenary of the ‘Bridge! Season 2018/19 represents the 100th year of Northbridge Cricket Club, and we would be delighted to have everyone who played with us last season, or those in seasons gone by, to register to play with the ‘Bridge again in what will be an epic season of cricket! Last season saw us field 6 teams in the NSCA competition, where we were the biggest club in the area so hopefully we can continue to grow again in our centenary season.

Player Registrations
The page to register your information is online at here so get your details in there to get onto our club list for 2018/19. Even if you have the same details as last year, filling the form out is the indication that you are keen to run around again, as well as some important questions about playing kit as we look to celebrate the centenary in style!

Pre-Season Training
The first of our pre-season training sessions will commence on Sunday 19th August, at the Naremburn Lower Nets from 12pm until 2pm. This is the chance to dust off the kit and roll the arm over, with those sessions continuing each Sunday through to the 16th of September, with the session on 23rd September modified for a later start time of 1pm – 3pm.

Outdoor Training Dates:
Sun 19th August – 12pm – 2pm
Sun 26th August – 12pm – 2pm
Sun 2nd Sept – 12pm – 2pm
Sun 9th Sept – 12pm – 2pm
Sun 16th Sept – 12pm – 2pm
Sun 23rd Sept – 1pm – 3pm

We are hoping to start mid-week training early September, but are waiting to hear back about venu availability. Either way, get along to a training session, or all of them and have a run before the season starts in earnest.

NSCA Changes
In the 2018/19 season, the NSCA will be combining all synthetic grades with the NDCA to run under the NCU banner. This is not a merger, all the NSCA is doing is playing all grades under that banner to try and expand/improve on the synthetic cricket and have more teams/variety of competition. This should mean our D Grade sides from last year are not forced into 1-day only competition, and is a good result for our association moving forward.

Welcome Executive & Committee
Welcome again to our Executive and Committee members for the 2018/19 season. This is a big one for us, generally get one centenary in a lifetime so I welcome our volunteers who help to keep the club running behind the scenes. In saying that, if you have ideas on the sorts of things we can do for our centenary, fundraising ideas, sponsors etc then let us know.

So that’s all we have to update on for the moment, register your interest in playing for the ‘Bridge in our Centenary season, and I look forward to seeing you all throughout what will hopefully be another successful season for the ‘Bridge!
