Plans for outdoor nets

Arrangements

We want to get started outside as soon as possible so the plan is for the senior men’s sessions to take place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at our main ground (address below). At the start we are happy for players to attend as they see fit and are able.

But in a few weeks (probably from the end of April) we will move to a more structured arrangement, with the 1st and 2nd XIs practicing on a Thursday and the remainder on a Tuesday. This split is not ideal but helps manage the expected numbers and also allows the 1st and 2nd XIs to have a focused practice.

First practice sessions

The first outdoor practices are therefore scheduled for this week on Tuesday 10th and Thursday 12th April at our main ground as below. Start time is 6.00pm for these early sessions but will move more towards 6.30pm once the weather and light improves. We appreciate that people may struggle to get there for this time but we would encourage people to come as and when it is possible.

Address: Giant Arches Road, off Burbage Road, Dulwich SE24 9HP

Restrictions and managing expectations

We all know the weather has been bad and we will be extremely limited in what practice we can undertake outdoors. Our nets are OK to use but the outfield is very wet. We are also limited at this time of year by the amount of light. At present batsmen would be struggling much beyond 7.15 or so, if that.

Depending on numbers and what time people arrive it may therefore not be possible for everyone to have a bat but we will try to arrange things such that people get as much benefit as possible. Players should make their own judgment as to what time they would be able to get there and the amount of practice that would be possible.

Bad weather

The forecast for this week is not great but we want to give ourselves the best chance. We will make a decision on whether the training is going ahead around mid-afternoon. We will do our best to e-mail around everyone to let them know, and will also put a quick message on the website.

If you do not see anything or hear anything then presume the session is on. But please also use your common sense if the weather is obviously bad.

Hopefully that covers most things but any questions or concerns let me know.

New players for 2018

Who We Are 

With a proud tradition running back over 150 years, Dulwich CC is South London's most central cricket club playing high level Surrey Championship cricket.

We run 7 teams on a Saturday, 5 of which play league cricket. Our ground has just undergone redevelopment which included the addition of brand new state of the art nets.

As you would expect with our proximity to the capital, we have a vibrant social atmosphere where players come to enjoy hard fought competitive cricket, but where cricket also forms a key part of their social life.

What We Are Looking For

We have some ambitious targets that involve improved and sustained success. We are looking to recruit high performing 1st and 2nd XI players to join our cause – not just for a season but to be part of our club and part of achieving these goals.

What You Can Expect From Us

We appreciate that people joining our club are committing their Saturdays for entire summers. We therefore commit to making sure that you have the best support to ensure you can perform and develop as a player at our club:

  • Winter net practice at The Oval, home of Surrey CC
  • Two weekly net sessions throughout the summer with our qualified coaches
  • Ad-hoc access to our net facilities and bowling machine
  • One-to-one coaching sessions throughout the season
  • Free playing shirt and cap for every member
  • A lot of fun (just check out a video one of our players made from a game)

No Dulwich CC Indoor Nets on Sunday 18th March

Due to floor replacement work at Dulwich College Sports Centre there will be no indoor nets on Sunday 18th March. Depending on how long the work take there may also not be a session on Sunday 25th March. Look out for confirmation of this over the next week or so.

Also keep an eye out in the next couple of weeks as we plan things for the start of the season. In particular arrangements for future indoor and outdoor nets, pre-season matches (weather permitting of course!!) and other general messages as we prepare for what will hopefully be a successful 2018 season.

Prue Gibson

We have just heard that Prue Gibson died peacefully on Wednesday 24th January in Lewisham Hospital. Prue had recently celebrated achieving her 100th birthday in November as the photograph below with Sir Steve Bullock, the Mayor of Lewisham shows.  Prue had been married to Tom Gibson for 57 years with much of their early days of marriage involved watching head teacher Tom leading Dulwich 3rd XI and 2nd XI sides home and away. Tom was a good club cricketer but his real forte was developing team spirit and coaching youngsters. Prue naturally brought the children on weekend afternoons where young Jimmy was soon smitten with the cricket bug.

Prue was nobody’s fool and her assessment of the game and cricketers made conversations interesting. When Tom retired, both came regularly to home weekend and midweek matches with Tiger, their Yorkshire terrier. After Tom’s death in 2000, Prue continued her interest in the club although her visits became less frequent as illness and old age limited her mobility. Anyone who met Prue could not fail to see her evident sense of humour, her inner practicality and a real commitment to her core values. Prue will be much missed and those knowing her will always recall the twinkle in her eye when she talked about Tom and her pride in her families many achieve.

The funeral arrangements will be available from Jim Gibson by email to jimbargibs@yahoo.co.uk.
