Alton College nets cancelled, Mon 12th Jan

Please note that due to a power outage at Alton College today all classes and sessions at the college have been cancelled this evening.

Hence there will be no Under 15s or Senior nets tonight.

The girls nets at Amery Hill are unaffected and will be on.

Really sorry but this is completely out of our control

New senior membership committee role

A new role on the committee has been proposed of Senior Membership Secretary. The aim of this position is to

  • Liaise with the treasurer about paid / unpaid / concessionary membership subscriptions
  • Liaise with the captains or play-cricket website about paid / unpaid match fees
  • Chase any unpaid moneys
  • Notify and enforce any restrictions for those that have outstanding fees.
  • This does not include the colts section, which is a separate position.
This is important for the following reasons
  • Creating equality by ensuring all players are paying their far share
  • Ensuring the club does not lose out on any revenue owed due to the ever increasing costs of running the club
  • Ensuring people are paid up members and therefore covered by the club’s insurance (any non-members are not covered, social membership does count).
Please do let us know prior to the AGM if you would be interested in taking up this role,

The club does not run itself, and relies on an ever-reducing number of people to do the work – which makes us stretched, stressed and susceptible to error.

Chairman stands down

It with much regret that I am formally announcing my intention to stand down as Chairman of ACC. My work commitments have increased significantly over the past 2 years and, with the increasing amount of time I find myself in Germany, I just don’t have the time to commit to such an important and pivotal role in the club.

Alton CC Colts Awards Evening

The end of season event is due to take place on Friday 17th October at the Pavilion at Jubilee.

The timings will be as follows:

6.45pm – U9s and U11s

7.15pm – Girls

7.40pm – U13s and U15s

There will be awards for best bowler and best batsman for each team, and most improved and player of the year for each squad.

Please attend if you can – we shall have the bar open, and a BBQ (weather permitting). It is a lovely way to round off the season, celebrate some great cricket that has been played by all teams, and thank the coaches for the time they give up from January through to July.

I would also like to organise a 2nd hand kit sale on the same night, to raise funds for the club. If you have any kit your son/daughter has outgrown and you would be able to donate, please email me to arrange to drop it with me before the 17th so I can set things up for the evening (hbporter at BT Internet dot com).

Many thanks and we look forward to seeing you on the 17th October

Alton win to seal highest ever finish, 2s spoil Tichbourne’s party, 3s Promoted

Alton delayed by traffic arrived at Lymington in somewhat of a rush but with the opportunity of their highest ever finish were keen to start well. Seeking another good all round performance, Alton lost the toss and found themselves batting on a surface that due to the midweek rain would offer assistance to the bowlers.

Despite losing the toss and arguably having the worst of the conditions Alton produced one of their best batting performances of the season, setting up a convincing 68 run win. With results elsewhere favouring the Brewers a third place finish was achieved.
