"Andy McGrath - Sherburn Cricket Club"

Saxton Cricket Club would like to express its condolences to all family, friends and team mates of Andy McGrath.

Everyone at Saxton Cricket Club was saddened to hear about Andy’s untimely death at the weekend.

He was a cricketer who was highly respected by his team mates at Sherburn Eversley as well as other teams within the Wetherby League.

A family man, good team mate and fine cricketer.

He will be sadly missed.

Apologies as the wrong number was given for Prak Veerasamy in the newsletter. It should be 07908 860197.

From The Newsletter April 2013

And so as the snow start to melt over the ground, it means the cricket season is upon us again. Last year was a huge year for the club and the majority of us have had a well-earned break over the winter. The pavilion is now as good as finished and plans move on to finishing the grounds-mans hut / getting services up to the ground. We finally have an official date for the opening ceremony on the 23rd June and Yorkshire Ladies will be coming to play a Saxton side. If you had any ideas / or could help out please approach a committee member

I would like to say a huge- thank you to those in the club who don’t have much of a break, Pete Snowden and Nigel Gilbertson, who have been busy preparing the outfield and square. I would also like to say a huge thank-you to Chris who has been busy over the winter sorting out the fixtures and events for 2013, and also to Alan whose financial work never stops. The last thank-you must go to the farms around the club, whom have leant us machinery over the winter to sort-out the car park / shift materials around the ground. We need to have a full grounds-day up at the club before the season starts, so could all 1st and 2nd team players please come to the ground for 10a.m on SATURDAY 13th APRIL 2013

All of the fixtures / events that the club has booked in for 2013 are now up on the website, and apart from a few minor niggles, the club has finished the main pavilion building. Since completion the club has received a number of enquiries from members and villagers about using the pavilion. If you would like to use the pavilion please could you contact Chris or Ian for a discussion.

Subscriptions / Membership

Member subs are now due for playing senior and junior members of the club. Could any subs be paid as soon as possible as this allows the club to buy kit / maintain machinery etc. I also like to thank Dan Hewer for volunteering to help as Membership Secretary for 2013. Could subs be posted through the letterbox of the treasurer; Alan Tyson, Plough Corner, Saxton or given to one of the captains.

Juniors 1st Child / 2nd Child - £25 / 12.50

Junior Cricket

Saxton Cricket Club has entered an U9 team in the league for the first time this year. There are around 8-10 fixtures mainly at home on Sunday mornings which we hope you will come and support. If you have a child within this age group who you would like to play please contact Prack Veerasamy on 07813563270, or alternatively come along to any junior practise night on a Tuesday. There are two more weeks of U9 nets on a Monday night at Sherburn High School, 8th and the 15th and a huge thank you to Prack, Dave, Phil and all the other parents who have been running these.

We also have an U17’s team in the league that has around 10 games on a Monday night throughout the year. If you are interested in playing please contact me, Ian Cunningham on 07811930328. Practise nights for U17’s are also on a Tuesday night at 6:30.

Unfortunately for the first year in a long time we have been unable to enter an U15 team in the league due to the lack of numbers in this age group. This is a real shame so over the weekend the junior coaches have met with Church Fenton cricket club and come to an arrangement that the Saxton U15’s are able to get regular competitive cricket in this age group. If any parents would like to know more details please contact me.

We still have a “vacancy” for any parent who would be able to help us out with junior’s administration, so if there is anybody out there who could give up an hour or so a week, helping with the juniors administration please don’t be shy in coming forward, as your help would be much appreciated. Lastly can I remind everyone that the Child Welfare Officer for 2013 is Dave Buck and so if there are any issues on welfare please contact David directly or through myself.

2013 Club Sponsorship

The next six months are going to be the busiest in the club’s history, with numerous fixtures and high profile media events. We would like to share our success by inviting you or your business to sponsor a match day or banner at the ground. Your contributions will make a huge difference to the club and details can be found on the attached letter.

Memorial Bench

We would like to offer family and friends the chance to remember an individual with a memorial bench at the pavilion. To make an enquiry please email via contactus@saxtoncc.co.uk for further details.


If you would like to keep up-to-date with any of the latest results / match reports / events / or player averages please visit the website www.saxtoncc.co.uk

Senior Cricket / Nets

There will be one more week of indoor senior nets on Monday 8th April at 7p.m and then hopefully we’ll go outdoors for a practise before the season. Keep an eye on the calendar on the main page of www.saxtoncc.co.uk for any changes.

After around 6/7 years, Steve Hills has decided to relinquish the first team captaincy and pass on to Jon Potter. Huge thanks from everyone in the club and committee to Steve for completing this role for the club. Jon or any of the other captains can be contacted on the numbers below.
Skills / Help

The assistance that has been given by members of the club, and the businesses they work for, providing labour and materials towards the pavilion has been truly fantastic over the last 12 months. If you feel that you could give a few hours to the club over the next year, it would help to keep the club “healthy” for generations to come. We are looking for individuals who may be able to help give the club some time or advice on the following;

Hut Roofing / Electrics / Signs and Designs / Legal / Project management / Accountancy /Fund-raising
If you’re not sure what you could offer, but want to help, perhaps have a quiet chat with our chairman Mark Greenwood in the Greyhound!

Keeping in contact

Apart from the twice yearly newsletters, we would like to be better at keeping in contact with members of the club and the village. If you would like to send us your e-mail address this would make it easier (and cheaper) for the club to do this. Please just send an email to contactus@saxtoncc.co.uk and then we will add you to the clubs database
