It was certainly lean pickings for the Club’s senior sides as the Men recommenced their 2-day competition and the Women played their first match for 2020.
Sydenham went into this match on Thursday night against regular champion St Albans on Sydenham 1 with a only a slim chance of making the T20 semi-finals – however, we hadn’t beaten Saints for a year or two and so this match was a good test to see where the side had progressed over the season.
In November 2020, during Show Weekend (13/11/2020 to 15/11/2020) we will be celebrating the 125th Anniversary of the founding of the Sydenham Cricket Club.
We are setting out a programme for the weekend that will include all sections of our club - Men, Women, Youth, Juniors, and Supporters.
There will be cricket matches, a BBQ, an anniversary dinner with celebrity guest speakers, fun cricket related events, and much more.
We need your help please to spread the word about the anniversary among all present and former players, and club members - plus we want indications from everyone who would like more detail and information. We need to have some indication of numbers of potential attendees so we can adequately cater for all.
Please reply to indicate your interest via email to email@example.com
We look forward to your emails.
SCC 125th Anniversary Committee
The adult men were mostly all back playing on Saturday after the Christmas break, with all three morning grade teams with double headers T20 matches. It was a case of a win and a loss for both the Prem and the 3rds (Div2), whilst the 2nds had an excellent day winning both of their matches and getting their T20 campaign back on track.
Highlight of the weekend was the Division One boys victory off the final ball of the match in their one-day final on Saturday. For the Premier Men it was a case of won one lost one at the start of their T20 campaign, and the Division two boys went one better with two victories, be it one from a default.
