Junior coaching has recommenced

Junior coaching has restarted following the latest ECB guidelines so we are running sessions in groups of 6 made up of 5 juniors and a coach.  Full guidelines and how to book onto sessions have been emailed to all juniors but please contact us if you have not received this information.

Sessions for years 3 to 8 are run on Sunday mornings and years 9 & 10 will be on Friday evenings starting from the 3rd July.  At the moment we won't be running our mini cricket sessions for reception, Year 1 & Year 2 children which under normal circumstances takes place on Friday evenings.  We will review the situation when more ECB guidance is issued but running these age groups in a socially distant manner with no real opportunity for team games is currently not practical.

If you are interested in joining the club then please email us via the website and we will send you more information about coaching for the summer of 2020.

Tony Purkiss

The Club is sad to report that Tony Purkiss died overnight, after a prolonged period of illness with cancer. Tony's contribution to the club was immense, and was recognised by his election as a life member. 
 

Tony played over 600 games for the Narks during the 60s, 70s and 80s, retiring in 1989. He was a very capable wicket keeper, who took 279 catches and executed 192 stumpings. Tony could bat a bit, too, and always regretted that he never made it to three figures, although some would say that a highest score of 99 is an unusual and notable accomplishment. It is sad that current restrictions will make it impossible for us to give Tony the send-off he deserves, but he will be remembered very fondly by his former team mates and all who knew him.

Tony's funeral will take place at Wooburn Green Cemetery on Friday 5th June at 3pm, for immediate family only. Donations if desired to Prostate Cancer UK, via Arnold Funeral Sevice Ltd 891 London Road, Loudwater, High Wycombe. Bucks. HP10 9TB  telephone 01494 472572. UPDATE WNCC members are welcome to stand outside the cemetery at 2.45 (with or without a bat) to show our repects to Tony and his family, please adhere to social distancing.

New 50 Club

We are launching the WNCC 50 Club, a replacement for the old “59ers” weekly draw, which has provided us with valuable income for a number of years, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank Karen for her hard work in administering the 59ers. The idea of the new 50 Club is to move from 52 weekly winners to 8 draws a year. This will be simpler to administer, have bigger prizes, and will allow us to make the draws part of our social calendar, holding them on Friday nights, once the season finally gets under way, at the “Drink the Bar Dry” night, the Annual Dinner, etc. As things stand, it looks likely the first draw, pencilled in for June, will be held via Zoom, which won’t be the same as having everyone in the clubhouse, but should be fun nonetheless.

The cost of participation in the 50 Club is £60 a year, i.e. £5 a month, and each of the eight draws will be for a prize of £150, or £200 if the winner is present when the draw is made. If the winner is not there, the additional £50 will roll forward until the next draw

To participate in the 50 Club, please set up a monthly standing order for £5 per membership (and please feel free to take out more than one!) to begin on May 1st. Our bank details are:

Account name WNCC

Sort Code 60-13-35

Account number 64048470
