Alex Hammond on form for England

Alton teenager Alex Hammond smashed 57 off 28 balls to lead the England Physical Disability side to a thrilling five-wicket win over their Pakistan counterparts in Dubai.

Pakistan posted 140-9, but Hammond led England home, hitting two sixes and eight fours. Hammond played seven Premier League matches for Alton last season, scoring 46 against Havant last July.

Cricket Force, 18th-19th April

It’s that time of year again when Cricket Force is upon us, and we all make our way to the JCG for a spring clean, tidy up and make improvements to the clubhouse.

We have a number of tasks that need undertaking and we need your help!!

It would be great to see as many of you there as possible. There are various jobs that need doing to make the clubhouse and grounds suitable for the summer – and these things don’t just happen by themselves.

Please use the form to indicate when you are available to come and help so we can plan a timetable of jobs to be done.

On the evening of the 19th, we have the Jamie Salmon talk. So come down and make a day of it.

No excuses! It’s YOUR club, and WE need to do the work. Don’t leave it to somebody else.

If you can’t see the form below, click here »

Net profit

The storms over the past few weeks had taken their toll on out practice facility at the JCG, with the nets being strewn across the practice area.

This morning, a hardy team of souls repaired the netting and replaced it across the four lane structure.

Using ingenuity and worldly experience, plus a series of ropes and pullies, the job was completed in good time.

So, with cricket force coming in a few weeks, come and lend a hand to fix up the club for the coming season.

We hope to see you all there on 18th and 19th of April.

FUNdamentals of Movement coaching course

There are still places left on the Sports Coach UK Course ‘An Introduction to the Fundamentals of Movement’ on Wed 26th March, 6pm – 9pm at South Downs College.

Attend this workshop and learn about the key skills that underpin the majority of sports. You’ll come away with a thorough grounding in the FUNdamentals of Movement – agility, balance and coordination – as well as the importance of play, fun and enjoyment in sport. Coaches in schools will also be able to understand how the FUNdamentals of Movement play a crucial role in the delivery of the PE national curriculum for Key Stages 1 and 2. This helps to ensure they meet Ofsted criteria when supporting teachers in PE curriculum time delivery.

Who Is This For?
Coaches who are working with younger children (particularly 6–9 years of age/Key Stage 1 and Lower Key Stage 2) in either a club or PE and school sport environment.

Duration: 3 hours (includes a practical element so you will have the chance to put into practice what you learn in the first part of the workshop)

To book onto this course please contact South Downs College on www.southdowns.ac.uk or call 023 9279 7979

RIP ‘Max’ Hubbard

Max HubbardAlton CC players and officials are sad to learn of the loss of one of their favourite four-legged friends.

Having reached the grand old age of 16, Max has left the JCG for the last time. He always loved cricket better than anything, and preferred it when he could watch a good win having hovered up any excess teas left on the pavilion floor.

He liked the bar (except when it was renovated and he had to stay outside) but he usually crept in to find crisps on the floor when he could.

He particularly liked his role as mascot for the junior teams when Ed was in them, always finding a good position on the front row of a photograph.

Tuesday night nets

Tuesday night net sessions for 3s & 4s men and U15/U17 squads have been very poorly attended to date. We have also struggled with the availability of coaches to cover these sessions. As such these sessions have now been cancelled.

U15 and U17 training has been rescheduled to Monday nights (still at the college) from 7-8; immediately preceding our 1st/2nd team net sessions.

3s & 4s players are also invited to attend this (7-8) session.
