fun day

Diary Dates

The annual jamboree will once again take place at KCC on Bank Holiday Monday 2nd May starting at 12 noon. There will be a host of local sports clubs and organisations demonstrating their wares and inviting participation from both adults and children.  A BBQ will provide the Bank Holiday staple of bangers and burgers, ably assisted by an ice cream van.  The bar will be serving refreshments for the adults whilst the kids will be able to indulge in Kaine’s Bouncy Castle.  There will be entertainment and music throughout the afternoon, rounded off with a session in the clubhouse from our good friend Daniel Giardiello (starting around 6.30pm).  If you can spare some time to help at this event then please contact Simon Edmonds on 07900 506192.  Either way, we hope to see you there.

This Weekend
Apart from the big fun day on Monday, this weekend we host the inaugural KCC Ladies league match as they entertain Brackley CC on Sunday in a double header that see’s the 1’s likely to blood some juniors in their Challenge Cup 1st Rounds match.

Leicestershire Seconds  Will be playing two T20 games at KCC on Tuesday May 3rd – both games against Worcestershire. First game starts 11.30 am and second game at 3.30 pm. It would be great to see a big KCC crowd so come along after work/school. If the weather is good we will put a BBQ on from 5pm. The following Tuesday May 10th are games against Durham using the same format.

Firsts begin with comfortable win

A century from opener Sunny Patel was the mainstay of a comfortable run chase as the first team overhauled Earl Shilton’s total of 189 on Saturday afternoon with nearly 20 overs to spare. PJ scored 52* and shared an unbeaten century partnership with Sunny that saw KCC to a nine wicket win. Luke Evans with 4-19 took the bowling honours claiming all four victims in a six ball spell .

There were also victories for the Second team at Broomleys where Kieran Wordsworth got off to a flyer with a classy 75 and for the Third’s at home to Countesthorpe where Dave Greenhalgh contributed 60. The Fourth team were easily beaten by Bharat Sports after being bowled out for 63.

Earl Shilton CC 189/9 ( Luke Evans 4/19, Daz Shaw 2/25) v Kibworth 1st XI 191/1 (Sunny Patel 104*, PJ 52*) – Kibworth 1st XI won by 9 Wickets
Broomleys 160/8 v Kibworth 2nd XI 164/3 (No info provided on Play Cricket but think Kieran got runs!) – Kibworth 2nd XI won by 7 Wickets
Countesthorpe 2nd XI 175/10 ( Nitin 3/24, Messo 2/21, Sam 2/21) v Kibworth 3rd XI 179/3 (Greenhalgh 62/1, Houlihan 38, Harry Pounds 35*) – Kibworth 3rd XI won by 7 Wickets
Kibworth 4th XI 63/10 (Skip 25) v Bharat Sports 64/2 (Shabaan 1/12) – Bharat won by 8 Wickets

National cup win sets up Banbury tie

KCC will travel to Banbury in the National Cup second round on May 8th after beating visitors Finedon Dolben on Sunday. Sunny Patel’s second unbeaten century in as many days helped see Matt Cravens team to a seven wicket victory after the Northants side had made 222-8 from their 45 overs. Russell Spiers took 4-34 from his nine overs and Craven himself made 50.

Finedon Dolben 222/8 ( Spiro 4/34) v Kibworth 1st XI 223/3 ( Sunny Patel 103*, Craves 50) – Kibworth 1st XI won by 7 Wickets

We have a point to prove at Banbury having lost narrowly in the equivalent fixture a couple of years ago. The game starts at 1pm and if there is sufficient interest the club will organise a bus/mini bus. If you would like to come let Abbo or Chairman know.

Midweek Bar Rota

We are looking for junior parents/supporters to help out with the bar rota during the summer. For the last 4 or 5 years Abbo, Steve and Jan have done all these games and last year Amy Messenger helped out on Fridays. It would be great if others could step up to the plate and help this year. We are looking for volunteers on Monday Tuesday Wednesday and Friday nights when there is Junior Cricket. Please contact Chairman on 07836 680269.  Full training will be given wherever needed.

Expert Coaching @KCC

Sunny Patel has spent the majority of his cricketing career at KCC having started as a KWIK cricketer in the 90’s.  He was part of our U13 side that won the National Trophy in 2002 and also featured in the first tea. Lords finals on two occasions. A short spell at Worcestershire trying to break in to the county game interrupted his time with us but he is now back and has committed his long term future to the club. Over the last two seasons he has scored over two thousand runs for us as an opening batter and his role as a coach is increasing. He will be Team Manager for the U11 side this year and is also available for 1-2-1 coaching.

Go Cardless

Go Cardless will act as our Direct Debit provider for the 2016 season and will charge a management fee for their services. The club will absorb this charge for members who pay their subs as a single payment and add the fee to the payment for those who choose the four payments option, The management committee believe that an electronic, professionally constructed payment software like ‘Go Cardless’ will save us considerable time and effort and make account reconciliation much easier. It will also give us a degree of flexibility that we hope we can use to benefit members going forward To set up a direct debit instruction go to; to access the page where you can authorise us to take payments from you;
