In these the dog days of winter, where cold holds the earth in its tentacular grip and the sacrosant optimism of daffodils is perceived folly, it is hard to believe that in just a couple of months men and women up and down the land will be digging their whites out of the attic and applying a fresh coat of linseed oil to their bats. Here at Grantchester Cricket Club we perhaps feel this more keenly than most, for we are anticipating our first year playing on our very own ground, Spring Lane field. Some of our more enthusiastic cricketers have even begun pre-season nets. Much hard work has been put in during the winter months in preparation of the ground and its environs, and this will continue to gather pace through Spring as we get set to embark on our 2012 programme of fixtures.
In addition, you may have noticed that we now have our own online shop. Partnering with Amazon has provided us the facility to offer a wide range of cricket related goods and merchandise at very competitive prices. Also please note that for every item you order through the shop portal, our club receive a percentage from Amazon.
Whilst you are visiting our site, please take the time to sign our Guestbook.
Finally, as befits our status as a social cricket club, we have news of our planned events for the coming year. We very much hope you are able to attend, help support the club and most importantly have a good time:
