The cold winter mornings and gloomy communiques from Down Under make the next cricket season seem a long way off but the management team, volunteers and loyal Club supporters are already planning and preparing…it’s a year long process. As is customary ground improvements and other essential maintenance work will be completed and training is not that far off either. All of us are hoping for less disturbed lives this year with more regular fixtures returning to Steephill…along with the weekend crowd of enthusiasts plus visitors to the town. The end of season win against South Wilts 2s masterminded by our overseas player, Anthony Alleyne, a great hit with the teams and spectators alike, meant that the first team moved up to Division One – a great achievement in an unpredictable season and congratulations go to all involved. I wish everyone a Very Happy New Year…see you in the bar!
