KCC on tour

As announced in the last newsletter the KCC Summer Tour is back this year, under the ‘expert’ leadership of our very own Phileas Fogg, Cory Laywood!.

The tour runs from Sunday 9th until Wednesday 12th August, with games arranged against Ryde CC (Monday 10th August) and Ventnor CC (Tuesday 11th August)

The cost is £170 per head and includes 3 nights hotel on a bed and breakfast basis and ferry fares. Details of the hotel that we propose using can be found by clicking on the attached link:-


So far we have 23 definite tourists, and have around 40 places maximum available and so we need details of anyone wishing to come asap. We do need a few more players though in order to ensure that we get a good team on to the field

A deposit of £50 per person is also required as soon as possible and can be paid by cheque (payable to Kibworth CC) at the bar, or you can pay by internet banking:-
Sort Code: 40-32-04
Account Number: 91759043
Enter your name in Customer Reference field
Whichever way you choose to pay please make sure you let Cory know so that he can keep track of numbers on ( Mobile 07531 302005)

The tour is open to anyone, and we especially need people who would like a game or else it could be a tough few days!

For anyone who hasn’t had the pleasure of touring with KCC before it really is great fun, and is suitable for everyone.

Help required

We had an excellent evening of celebration with some of our ‘Clubmakers’ a couple of weeks ago. We celebrated some of the great work that people at KCC do to ensure that we can play cricket with facilities that match our ambitions.

We use the name ‘Clubmaker’ rather than volunteer because we believe that this is a more apt title for the fantastic work that people do on our behalf. We have a number of things on the horizon where Clubmaker support will be vital, firstly with our annual Village Sports and Fun Day on May 4th (Star Wars Day!).
We are also on the lookout for breakfast teams as the Junior Coaching gets underway on Sunday 12th April. There is a list on the noticeboard next to the kitchen and so please get your name down so as to avoid disappointment!

We are also on the lookout for midweek bar volunteers as we will swiftly be hosting cricket at KCC almost every night of the week. Please contact Steve Ellwood if you are available for a shift.
However, probably most pressing is our need for scorers for our Saturday teams. If anyone, regardless of age and experience would like to get involved we will provide full training and so please contact Steve Ellwood asap.
Later on in the summer we will be hosting a number of ECB Finals once again, and so we will be on the lookout for help in ensuring that these events continue to be delivered with our usual style nearer the time.

Junior nets

Outdoor sessions will start on Sunday morning 12th April @9.30am for existing players and the following Sunday for newcomers.
