Think you can do better than the selection committee? Here is your chance to prove them wrong; with the launch of the BPCC Fantasy Cricket League.

Points are awarded for runs, wickets, catches and deducted for the dreaded ducks and 0-fers.  With a £55m budget money is tight, but assemble a squad that sees you through to glory.

02 Mar 2017 : CRICKETFORCE 2017
With Mopsies already being redecorated for the new season, the attention for CricketForce this year will be the new home of our 3rd and 4th XI, Holy Cross.

The council have already re-painted the downstairs and changing rooms areas, but the top floor club room needs a good clean and lick of paint.

All members that can lend a hand please do come over on CricketForce weekend on Saturday 1st April and Sunday 2nd April 2017.  Times will be published shortly.


02 Mar 2017 : NO WINTER NETS THIS WEEK

Thanks


20 Feb 2017 : CLUBHOUSE RENOVATION PROJECT

As members will know, the club has, for a number of years, wanted to modernise our clubhouse at Mopsies, to increase the space for our members for both playing and social areas. 

The club has appointed a sub-committee for this purpose, as we look to push this dream into being a reality.  The sub-committee is headed up by our former Chairman Paul Ayres, and he is joined by Paul Singleton, Steve Bonnett, Dan Bedford, Gary Ayres, Michael Gray, Kathy Ayres and Stewart Vickers; a good mix of people with building expertise and people also aware of the traditions of the club.

The sub-committee will be working alongside the main committee to deliver the clubhouse extension that we believe is the best way forward for the club and Mopsies.

To this end, there will be a number of social and fund raising activities which will be advertised on the club website and social media pages; please try your hardest to come along, enjoy the events and help contribute towards the new clubhouse.  Your help and support will be key to us delivering this project.

We have created a new page on the club website, called Clubhouse Renovation, where we will keep members up to speed on the fund raising and building activities.

Finally, Paul and his team have started the project today, by starting works on the current clubhouse, working towards an updated club area, refreshed changing rooms and also some minor structural works to put the current building in good stead for the extensions.  We are aiming to have the clubhouse re-opening on the President's Day (Saturday May 6th); we look forward to be able to welcome you all on the day. In the meantime, the clubhouse will be out of action until the works have completed.

Keep an eye on the update page, updates will be posted regularly !!


31 Jan 2017 : 2017 SNEL FULL FIXTURE LISTS
The full fixtures lists for the 2017 SNEL campaign are now on the club website, in the Matchday, Fixtures section.

13 Jan 2017 : 3rd and 4th XI HOME GROUND FOR 2017

As you may have become aware, there have been changes to the facilities at Laindon Rec, which, after a great deal of thought and discussion by the Committee with the Council led to the conclusion that it would not be beneficial for the club to continue to use Laindon Rec for our 3rd and 4th XI home matches.

So, after over 20 years of calling Laindon Rec our home, we have had to take the decision to move our 3rd and 4th XI home matches to Holy Cross Recreation Ground for the 2017 season.

Holy Cross is situated off of Great Spenders, in the Fryerns area of Basildon. Further details on how to access the site for all members will be published soon.

We look forward to the 2017 season at Holy Cross for our 3rd and 4th XIs.
