U12s WSYCL Champions
Congratulations to coaches Chris Poil, Gareth Buchanan-Robinson, Peter Stanley, Simon Freeguard, Kevin Currie and the U12s squad for winning the WSYCL in a season where they remain undefeated!
U12s Tour of Devon
Once again the Chris Poil's U12s squad embarked on a tour of Devon during the weekend of May 5th & 6th.

They were based in Witheridge and managed to squeeze in four games over the weekend.

Thanks to Helen Curtis & Jolian Howell & Leslie Cathrew for the Tour Report.

Sponsor's Match
A good crowd saw an entertaining match against a team from our Sponsors, TWM Solicitors, on Wednesday evening. A strong TWM bowling attack saw Blackheath pegged back to just 92 from their 16 overs and looking in danger of defeat, but fortunately order was restored when TWM came to bat and despite a late flourish they finished on just 80. Many thanks to TWM for the game and for their generous contribution to the hospitality!

Individual Coaching
Danny and Ronny Harrison (who both now coach for Surrey as well as for the club) are offering individual and 1:2 sessions at the club. This year they are providing this under the umbrella of Matchfit Academy (www.matchfitacademy.com), a new venture associated with the club. It is slightly more expensive than last year at £20 per hour (whether 1:1 or 1:2), but still far cheaper than available elsewhere, especially for coaching from a Surrey district coach. To book sessions, please contact them at ronny@matchfitacademy.com or danny@matchfitacademy.com.
