WCC Summer Cricket Camp news & Pics

Hi everyone WCC's Summer Cricket Camp is well under way and all boys and girls attending have had a great 1st week...despite a couple of occasions where rain stopped play! The first week was a roaring success with everyone completing drills, exercises and managing to get a couple of games of Diamond Cricket in too!! I have put together a snapshot of some of the kids gaining valuable cricket coaching and as you will see on their faces they ALL had a fantastic time, each receiving a 'Goody Bag' and certificate for their hard work and excellent behaviour. We are all looking forward to another week of fun and hopefully SUN from the 16th to 20th August...why not come down and join us and see for yourself? Ring Tracy on 07973491047...I will always fit anyone in.

Close of season & Summer Camp News


The Cricket Season has now drawn to a close, WCC saw the U14's get the closest to silverware this season loosing narrowly by only 20 runs to Urmston in the Semi Final, U18s lost out too in a nail biting bowl out in the quarter final to Bowdon, we all agree it's not the best way (if there is a best way?) to lose a match...but the rain and mixed weather had put a dampener on nearly all the last junior matches of season 2010.
The Junior Committee hope you have all enjoyed playing your cricket at WCC again this year or if it has been your first season that you will be returning to play cricket with us again next season. I will keep all informed throughout the winter of any events to include "soon to be announced" our FIRST WINTER INDOOR CRICKET training, hoping to start sometime in September and also details of our yearly Winter nets (start Feb 2011) by email and text, I will also announce any junior information on here and on the club's website and play cricket.com

WCC Jnr's recent results...

All the WCC Junior sides have been working hard to improve their placings in the League and also getting fired up for the SMJCL Cup matches, recent results follow:

U11's

U11's last match against Lindow abandoned RAIN (6/6/10)
U11's won away at Hale Barns by 5 wickets, strong batting again from Azure Wilkinson with 25 retired not out also taking 2 wickets for 3 runs, Jack Roberts scoring 22 runs, Josh Phillips getting a creditable 15 runs a great team performance by all. (23/5/10)

Previously U11's secured a fantastic first win against local rivals Didsbury, Azure & Owen Lewis both retiring on 25 runs and Jack Roberts scoring 22 runs and taking 3 great wickets to secure WCC's win by 27 runs. (16/5/10)

U13's
U13's last match against Woodford was a real thriller...both sides hit by the 1/2 term break saw some of their regular U13's away on holidays, so some of our U11's were drafted in to help, ALL the players from both sides played well, read Ben Corrie's match summary on:
http://wythenshawe.play-cricket.com/scoreboard/scorecard.asp?id=11032581

Vaughn taking 4 wickets for 21 runs and retiring not out on 30, Ryan Booth also retired not out on 31 and Ross getting an LBW on 28..all the U11's who played 'up' in 13's gave a great account of themselves. (5/6/10)
Previously U13's had a resounding success over Timperley as our lads trounced them all out for only 29 runs off 11.2 overs, Ross Crowther taking the match ball with an amazing 5 wickets for 5 runs haul!! WCC didn't have to stay at the crease for long to roll out the required runs to seal a very easy walkover...Well done All! (28/5/10)
Two weeks previously U13's had sealed another win over local rivals Didsbury winning by 6 wickets, Ross Crowther (30 rtd) and Ryan Booth (18) putting on the runs for WCC, chasing Didsbury's total of 83, some excellent fielding and bowling saw Didsbury have to work really hard to reach 83, wickets falling for Ross (2) Vaughn (2) Jai Arora (1) Jont Scott (1) and Sam Grant (1) WCC's batsmen chased every ball and sealed the win with just 2 balls left!! Great effort lads.
Not such good luck in the cup! U13's losing to Bowdon by 2 runs!! Hard Luck lads you ALL played great and we all thought we were so close to a victory...next time eh?

U15's
Mixed bag for WCC's U15's, with 3 of their scheduled 7 matches so far being abandoned for rain or wet pitches!!
There is some joy though as U15's had a great win at Ashley CC (2/5/10) winning by 28 runs, Adam Marsden (15) and Michael Taylor (19) getting the majority of WCC's runs, Adam, Jont and Leon getting 2 wickets each to ensure the U15's snatched their first win of the season.
Losing 3 of the 4 matches actually played sees the U15's mid table at this point in the season...lets hope the weather bucks up and they can start getting to actually PLAY some cricket!!

U18's
Fantastic news so far...sees U18's holding joint 3rd place in the league on 15 points with Romiley & Stockport Georgians...an amazing start for our development 18's squad captained by Martin Leonard, has seen the lads secure 3 wins, 1 tie and 3 losses to deservedly stand in 3rd place.
Match against Woodford (see previous blog) was an amazing feat, yet we were to be treated to yet another thriller on Tuesday 8th June as we took on Stockport Georgians at home, after a day of "is it on? is it off?" phone calls and texts made by myself to Stockport and also with the Club..both teams decided to take their chances and play on a slow and in places sluggish wicket.
WCC won the toss and batted first...Lewis (31) & Martin (30) building up our score with steady and intelligent cricket knowledge, we reached a creditable total of 94, which Georgians must have felt was easliy reachable within the 20 overs and now good light.
WCC U18's continued to show that they are a force to be reckoned with this season as they came out fired up to make sure Georgians did not get near our score.
Some fantastic bowling from Johnathan Dickens (3w for 20r) Lewis (2) Jont Scott(2) & Nathan (1) and some amazing fielding from ALL the lads saw Georgians fail to reach our total as we bowled them all out for 84!! Oh! and Arran "GOOGLE" Riley...you are a STAR!!

BRING IT ON CHEADLE NEXT TUESDAY at HOME!!!
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK ALL OUR WCC JNR SIDES...YOU ARE ALL FANTASTIC!
Tracy & the Junior Coaching team.

WCC Family Fun Day Dad's vs Kids Match


On Monday 31st May (Bank Holiday) WCC Jnr's challenged their Dad's to a "FUN" Cricket Match....needless to say all the Dad's were going to take it easy on the kids...because that's what Dad's do isn't it??

Well nothing could be further from the truth!!

The Dad's came onto the field like Gladiators...all in their neatly pressed flannels and designer sunglasses...ready to do battle with their offspring!

No ball was bowled softly, no shot was played with perhaps the hint of a catch...and the Dad's continued to throw their heart and soul into finishing off the kids!! Finishing on 91..(pairs cricket scoring used..5 runs lost for each wicket down)...a line of determined kids now sat around the boundary as one by one they met their Dad's on the pitch....all the kids played valiantly and not downhearted they joined in with the spirit of the game....from a minus score (from losing so many wickets initially) the kids slowly but surely started to get back into the game...finishing on a creditable 65!!

A rematch is on the cards...and we will be advertising for willing sacrifices (oops sorry) volunteers to join the kids and Dad's for the return....

WATCH THIS SPACE!!

WCC U18's take Woodford right to the wire!!!

" Nathan celebrates his 72 Not Out with Lewis"
A sterling team performance from WCC's U18's tonight (Tues 11th May) away to Woodford CC, saw WCC once again chasing a near impossible total of 148! WCC are certainly keeping their die-hard spectators on the edge of their seats this season....with two close run high scoring matches in a row! Of which we WON BOTH!!!
Tonight saw Capt. Martin Leonard limp his way through the opening overs, calling for a runner as a pulled thigh muscle restricted him from chasing down the required runs, getting out to a catch from one of Woodford's fielders who took some great catches from a couple of sloppy swings....WCC needed to stabilise the innings and Nathan Bailey & Ahmed (Kaka) started to keep things ticking over mid-innings. Kaka knocking out a few fours in his excellent innings of 25 and Nathan keeping a stranglehold on the Woodford attack...swinging his bat with swordlike flourishes...sixes flying around the ground..."Boom! Boom! Bailey" was the cry from his WCC teammates.

With two overs to go and WCC needed 16 0ff 12 balls....Adam Marsden took on the Woodford lads and ran singles to keep Nathan on strike....ball past through to slips and Adam's wicket went...Luke Hibbert came on to see out the last two overs...Nathan, seeing it was getting darker by the second...decided to crack out a huge six to seal the game! WCC finishing on a Fantastic 154!!

"Boom Boom!".....Well done to ALL the lads who offered some great cheering on from the sides..."will a win...and we WILL win!!
Just BELIEVE!!!

FULL HOUSE OF WINS FOR WCC JNR'S

Well done all junior sides this week, after you all secured your first wins of season 2010.
U15's away to Ashley CC reached a total of 98 for 8 wickets, Ashley chased in vain closing their batting on 70 for 7 wickets, a good consistent bowling attack from WCC enabled them to keep Ashley's batsmen from getting the required runs.
U18's next and what a THRILLER!! At home to Romiley, WCC were left a little reeling from a strong batting performance from a well disciplined Romiley outfit who went into the changing rooms at the break on a grand total of 142 for 2 wickets!! They must have thought they had it "In the Bag!" but never underestimate the lads from WCC! Out marched Kyle Murphy and Capt. Martin Leonard, from ball one they chased Romiley hard and runs were being knocked up at a blistering pace!! Kyle getting out to an LBW at a fantastic 67...he came off to well deserved standing ovation, Martin continued to keep turning the screw on Romiley leading WCC off the field with a 42 not out, WCC the victors, getting the required 143 total with 3 balls to spare!!
U11's won their friendly against Brooklands at the Sale Moor ground, with some good batting from Owen Lewis and Azure Wilkinson, strong bowling from Keenan Ritchie and Adam Barnes, Bailey Bennett and Owen Rawding saw U11's get their first win too!
& Finally the U13's won away to Didsbury, with Ross Crowther again getting most of WCC's runs retiring on 30 not out, wickets fell for Didsbury as Vaughn Corrie, Ross Crowther, Jonathan Scott and Jai Arora put the pressure on to Didsbury with some fine bowling. WCC chased every ball to reach the total of 83 set by Didsbury and reached the required runs with 3 balls to spare!!
GREAT results for ALL WCC junior sides this week.....WELL DONE ALL!!

"TESCO BAGPACK NEWS"
GREAT BIG THANKS TO ALL JNRS (& PARENTS) WHO CAME DOWN TO HELP AT THE BAGPACK ON SAT. 8TH MAY, WE RAISED £626 AND COLLECTED 1000'S OF VOUCHERS!!

WCC junior season has started with three losses, Tuesday evening saw WCC U18's newly formed development squad lose to a strong Didsbury side, although Didsbury proved a little too strong and surpassed WCC's total with four overs to spare, all our lads showed a good team spirit, were supportive of each other and we saw a couple of defiant performances from Lewis Crowther and Martin Leonard, a special mention goes to Leon Ritchie who took a fantastic catch on a bitterly cold evening down at Didsbury in failing light too!! Well done to all lads who have taken on the challenge to develop the U18's...the best is yet to come!!

U13's were defeated at home by Cheadle Tigers, match report by manager Ben Corrie can be read by clicking the link below:

Exciting Pre-Season 2010 News

Hi and Welcome back to WCC Jnr's very own Blog page!
Season 2010 will be upon us very soon and I am happy to kick start our season with some exciting news about 5 of our talented junior players.
Liam Dodd, Adam Marsden, (U15's) Ryan Booth, Vaughn Corrie and Ross Crowther (U13's) have all successfully gone through the rigorous City Of Manchester selection trials (that have been taking place over the winter months) and have been selected to represent The City Of Manchester Cricket teams in their respective age groups!!
The Committee wish to offer their congratulations and good luck wishes to all players who have been selected and also to wish those who were not selected, all the best for this season..there will hopefully be other occasions for you all to shine throughout the coming season.
Junior Nets at Lancashire CC and also at Chorlton High school have been running for the past 4 weeks and have been very well supported..thanks to all who have managed to attend so far.
It is my sincere hope that next year we will be able to secure more than 3 nets at Lancs to be able to offer the excellent facilities and opportunities to more of our junior players. Which is why this year we were only able to invite 18 players to Lancs, those invited were selected by WCC coaches and were players who had been selected for trials with Manchester Boys or who showed promise last season for individual session work.
I can now announce also that Junior Registration day will be on SUNDAY 21st MARCH 2010 at the club, where you will be able to register and pay for this seasons cricket and purchase new cricket whites/clothing etc on the day. I hope to have ND Sports again in attendance to offer discounted cricket equipment (bats/pads/gloves/shoes/helmets etc etc) and look forward to seeing you all down at the Clubhouse on 21st March 12 noon til 4pm.
Many thanks again
Tracy Bailey
WCC Jnr Secretary.
