Winter nets schedule – Seniors

Our indoor nets have been booked for Sunday 29th January through to Sunday 9th April (6.00pm – 8.00pm) at Dulwich College Sports Centre (Pond Cottages, London SE21 7LE).

We may look to extend the indoor nets beyond these dates but will take that decision nearer the time, dependent on the weather and our ability to train outside in April.

The nets organiser, Graeme Hough, will be in touch with members early in the New Year about how to book a place. Places will be limited to 32 on a first come, first served basis.

As in previous years there will be separate indoor nets for our 1st and 2nd team squad players beginning in mid/late February. Captains will be in touch in the New Year about these. Before these begin, however, all players are welcome to the Sunday ‘club’ nets.

BCS – Peter Rice retires not out

At the ripe old age of 74, club legend Peter Rice is hanging up his keys to Beckenham Cricket Specialists.

Peter says: "I set up B.C.S in 1993 and am proud to see how over the years it has become established as one of the leading cricket specialists in the country. John & Sue Copus have bought the business from me and, importantly, all my current colleagues are being retained by them. I am very grateful for the loyal service, that they have all given me. In particular, of course, over a period of many years Vernon and Mark, but also not forgetting more recently Dudley & Giani. Thanks also to my wife Jackie for her unstinting help & support. I would like to thank all of you that have supported me over the years, and I hope to still see many of you at the Club I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas, and a happy and healthy New Year.

Peter Rice

P.S. In addition to our normal hours we are also open on Sunday 18th Dec 11am – 3pm."

Kamran Munawar – John Lawrence Award Winner 2016

On Saturday we honoured some standout performers in Dulwich Cricket Club's 2016 season and celebrated an excellent year for the club at our annual Awards Dinner.

1st XI seamer Kamran Munawar took top honours, receiving the second ever John Lawrence Award to cap another excellent personal season. The award recognises the player who has made the biggest contribution and displayed real commitment to the club. A 3-2-1 awarding of points is made in every senior competitive match, including the senior teams, the academy and ladies games. Kamran's award recognised his consistency, taking 31 wickets at 16.58 in 21 competitive appearances for the 1st, 2nd and Academy XIs. He also chipped in with over 250 runs. Last year's winner Kira Chathli took home second spot in a close run contest, with 426 runs at 60.86 – including a career best 154* – for the Women's XI and 18 wickets at 18.67. Another 1st XI seamer finished third - Jon Lodwick took 24 wickets at 18.75 in 15 appearances.

Individual Player of the Year prizes were handed out to recognise outstanding contributions from across the club:

Tom Savill – 1st XI Player of the Year
Matt Quaife – 2nd XI Player of the Year
Jeremy Jones – 3rd XI Player of the Year

Club celebrity chef Prasanna Callaghan provided a fantastic curry, feeding the near 100 members in attendance at the Awards Dinner. There was good representation from all sections of the club with the Juniors, Women and volunteers being joined by all the Senior teams. We thank Prasanna and his team for putting on the food, and also to Noreen and her team who helped run the busy bar. Many thanks also to Matt Dixon, with various helpers, for his organisation of an excellent evening.

Cricket Chairman and local comedian Graeme Hough gave a warm speech praising all teams and the various award winners – noting particularly the achievements of the title winning 2nd XI and strong performances from the 3rd and 4th XIs. As always Graeme set some teams the target of improving their performance next season.
