Thornham Cricket Club
In the close season we reflect on achievements and missed opportunities for some……this, however, is our time to rebuild and set the footprint for next season. Our first team will be off to the Norfolk Cricket league presentation to receive their runners up medals for Division 2. Can we gain promotion next season in the new NCRA league? Either way this is a great achievement in 2021.

We will be looking to build our youth setup further by adding more members and increasing the coaching team. This is key to our future and we want to welcome next season more youngsters than ever before to our sessions. This means we need more parents who bring our players and also help out, hopefully they will also start to play for us too. We will invite anyone to come along to join in or watch one of our Saturday games and chat to players and officials on the day to learn how welcoming and inclusive we are as a club. We see so many people on Weekends at Thornham watching, visiting Thornham Deli, playing on the play area or grass we extend our open arms to all and hope we can encourage some to join the club and try the sport.

On the 6th November we will host our annual awards dinner at one of our sponsors restaurants The Lifeboat, whose chef has created a delicious looking menu for us. This will be a very fun evening for all members as we look to celebrate performances and achievements for 2021.

We also need to remember and pay homage to our tireless volunteers behind the scenes, this month we thank our groundsman Adrian, as without his endless efforts we would not be able to play a game at all. He has produced some high quality wickets tailored to both batsmen and bowlers with some weekends seeing well over 700 runs scored in total and 40 wickets. Thanks, Adrian, from all at Thornham CC for giving us you time and effort. Adrian is one of many volunteers who give up their free time to allow us to play and enjoy this sport at Thornham.

We will be posting news on our Facebook page(https://www.facebook.com/groups/27840960267) or (Twitter feed) and look forward to the winter being over to restart in 2022.

Thornham CC Player feature: Club Captain Kevin Williamson who is also one of our coaching team
My favourite fielding position used to be the covers but as I’ll soon be in my 29th season it’s the slips for me (less running)
I prefer to bat at number four or five, this suits my style of batting and allows me freedom for some big hitting
Nickname: Kev
Music taste: If you ask my team mates then I have none! but I like most up to date pop songs and some of the 80s too, I am quite partial to a bit of Elvis in the ghetto.
I started playing when I was just 11 back in 1993 some 28 years playing for Thornham CC.
Future target or wishes: Kev wants to see the youth coming through into our senior teams and he has helped many start this journey.
Your biggest inspiration: My inspiration is my Dad, club secretary Ron.

As we return to some normality in the world we look forward to the return of the traditional cricket “tea” as we do have some lovely ladies who make us cakes and other offerings this is something the cricket world and visitors to Thornham has missed for the last 2 seasons. Contact club secretary Ron at ron.williamson@btinternet.com for more info or any enquiries including sponsorship opportunities.
