Wickford Cricket Club are hoping they can be in the mix for promotion this season.
Wickford currently field five Saturday sides in the Hamro Foundation Essex League, with the first XI currently in the first XI Division Two.
They get their campaign underway on Saturday, May 8 when Southend-on-Sea are the visitors to the Patmore Memorial Ground (12:30pm).
After finishing mid-table in last season’s Cook Division, they are hoping to go one better this year and be fighting for promotion come September.
Wickford Cricket Manager Craig Smith said: “Last year we put in some good performances against some strong teams and we are hoping we can build on that this season.
“We have been in Division Two for a few years now and we have ambitions of playing higher up the leagues.
“We know there are some strong teams in Division Two with us so it’s going to be tough, but we have a good blend of experienced players and some very exciting youngsters in the first and second teams so we’re hoping we can be up there fighting for promotion come the latter half of the season.”
Wickford are always on the lookout for new players. If you are interested in joining Wickford please contact Craig Smith on [email protected].
