HNBCC "Old Gits" go down to Odiham in the Guy Jewell

Odiham 142 (Steve Cates 3-0 including hat-trick)  v  HNBCC "Old Gits" 120 all out

At the Bounty last night, a brave attempt by the "Old Gits" to chase Odiham's 142 fell short as no batsman could stick around long enough to make an impact.  Ah well, it's the first time we've had 2 teams in the GJ and we still have to look forward to HNBCC's A Team who are playing Basingstoke in the next round, date TBA.

"Army" crush Sparsholt to gain SEPL T20 Plate Semi-final slot

Sparsholt 94 (Shane Brewer 5-14)  HNBCC 95-0 (Jordan Hobday 50*)

A great afternoon was enjoyed by many members and friends as Hook hosted the first 2 rounds of the Southern Premier League T20 Plate.  In the first match, Sparsholt easily beat a weakened St Cross Symondians side to set up a last 8 tie against HNBCC.  Whether it was down the strain of playing 2 matches on the trot, the gulf in quality between the sides, or the effects of Badger's Burgers, Sparsholt were unable to reproduce their performance against the hosts.  HNBCC restricted Sparsholt to 94 all out thanks much to Shane Brewer with 5-14 including an "all bowled" hat-trick.  Jordan Hobday (50) and Ben Thane (38) then let loose and reached the target in less than 6 overs.

Well done lads and we now have a semi-final date against New Milton on Sunday 3rd August at Fernhill (New Milton's ground) with the final scheduled for 17th August..

Welfare Officer Vacancy


Our Club Welfare Officer, Jane Moore, is intending to stand down this Autumn.  This is a very important position in the Club and we could not operate without a Welfare Officer.  Having said that the Club is well placed in terms of having guidance, vetting checks and training as up to date as possible and therefore it is not a hugely onerous task to take on.  In terms of time commitment most time is spent in the winter and spring getting ready for the season so that during the summer it probably takes about an hour a week at most, aside from attending Thursday evening training.

Ideally it would suit someone who has some background in safeguarding, either from another club or organisation, school or work, but full training is given by Hampshire Cricket Board so please don’t be put off if you might be interested, but have no prior experience.  

Although Jane will be standing down from the role she is remaining on the committee and therefore will be able to hand over gradually as someone else begins to take it over.

If you have any queries please either catch Jane at the Club or contact her at or on 01256 762730.

Yourr help would be much appreciated.
